Female team Stratieva-Poenaru set for 2WD Cup action

15.03.2012: ....at IRC Rally Islas Canarias El Corte InglÚs The all-female crew of Ekaterina Stratieva and Carmen Poenaru will begin

....at IRC Rally Islas Canarias El Corte Inglés


The all-female crew of Ekaterina Stratieva and Carmen Poenaru will begin their quest for IRC 2WD Cup honours on Rally Islas Canarias El Corte Inglés as they start what could be a nine-event programme in the Intercontinental Rally Challenge.


Bulgarian Stratieva, 29, and Poenaru, a 27-year-old from Romania, are trying to secure the necessary funding to tackle an expanded campaign. While both are keen to exploit their all-lady crew status, Stratieva and Poenaru have achieved considerable success during their careers and are expected to impress aboard their Citroën C2, which they could upgrade to a DS3 R3T later in the season.


Stratieva, a two-time Bulgarian hillclimb champion, is no stranger to the IRC either having tackled the Prime Yalta Rally and Barum Czech Rally Zlín in 2011 where she finished as the top female driver.
