After making her debut in the GT4 class of the national RCRS series in April - returning to sprint races - 20-year-old driver Irina Sidorkova has confirmed that she will also continue in the national endurance racing series this year. With a big experience in formula and touring cars, her first experience in this type of competitions date back to 2022, when she took part in the traditional 4-hour Akhmat Race.

In 2023 Sidorkova continued her development program, participating exclusively in the full season of the RCRS Endurance. She was present in 3 of the 4 rounds, where she achieved impressive results - such as two fourth places in class and a podium in her debut race. This year the young racer will expand her field of work, dividing her attention between the two competitions.

Competing in the "Group F" class alongside Alexander Bolduev in the crew, Ira Sidorkova will have the opportunity to continue improving her experience behind the wheel of the BR03 prototype – in which she competed in the second half of the previous season. This will also allow Sidorkova to show her versatility and ability to drive, have good performances and achieve great results on different types of machines.

"Now I can note that we worked a lot on the settings, and the team prepared the car well during the winter break. I'm very happy with the car now, I like the way it handles." - said Sidorkova about the car's preparation work.

This year's RCRS Endurance calendar is scheduled for a total of 21 hours of action, spread over 5 rounds - the longest one will last 6 hours. The season will start this weekend, with a 4-hour race at Moscow Raceway, and will end on October 10th, integrating another edition of the 4-hour Akhmat Race, at Fort Grozny Autodrom.
