Anton Alen, the son of rally legend Markku Alen, has been confirmed as a Fiat driver on the Intercontinental Rally Challenge this year.

The 23 year-old will share Fiat’s second car with Italian driver Umberto Scandola, contesting half the events on the IRC programme. Alen is also likely to contest a number of events outside of the IRC using the Grande Punto.
 
The Finn narrowly missed out on his maiden victory on the Arctic Rally at the end of January, and is tipped to have all the star quality that characterised the success of his famous father Markku.

There is a long history between the Alen family and Fiat, as Markku drove for the Fiat group for more than 15 years, using legendary rally cars such as the 131 Abarth and Lancia Stratos and the 037.

“It is a pleasure for me to continue our family history, and I am really looking forward to driving the car on these fantastic rallies,” Anton Alen said.
