The Irishman has extended his contract with Peugeot and will spend another season in ERC.
Irishman Craig Breen will have a full 2021 season in the European Rally Championship (ERC). In parallel, he will compete in seven stages of the World Rally Championship in the S2000 car class (WRC2). This was made possible by Brin's renewal of his factory contract with Peugeot.
Next year Brin will again play in the Peugeot Rally Academy factory team
Craig Breen, 2021 JWRC (Junior World Rally Championship) champion, 2021 SWRC (S2000 World Rally Championship) champion, will run a full European Rally Championship campaign in a factory Peugeot 208 T16.
This year Brin claimed the title of European Rally Champion, but was unable to win it. The Irishman won the Greek ERC stage, the Acropolis Rally, but in the rest of the stages he was haunted by mechanical problems, which did not allow him to compete for the title.
Craig Brin will be the first driver of the Peugeot Rally Academy team in 2021. Together with him, the team included Frenchman Charles Marty and Portuguese Diogo Gago.

But he was unlucky
I am delighted to continue working with the Peugeot S62ort in 2021, when our priority will be to win the title of European champion, - said Brin. - This year we had a hard time. We didn't have enough luck, and the season was debut for the Peugeot 208 T16, but now everything is fine. The machine perfectly combines speed and reliability. I know the team.
This will be my third year as a factory pilot. The year promises to be exciting, but challenging, because my program also includes seven stages in WRC2, in which I will also compete with the support of Peugeot Sport, in the same car and with the same team. .
One of the leaders of the World Rallycross Championship, Latvian Reinis Nitis, also intends to take part in one of the stages of the European Rally Championship . He will start at the start of the home stage of the Latvian Rally Liepaja.
