Rally Italia Sardegna: SKODA privateers fight for victories in WRC2 and WRC3
Since the re-start of the FIA World Rally Championship, ŠKODA customer crews impressed with top results. Three times FIA European Rally Champion Kajetan Kajetanowicz from Poland, together with co-driver Maciej Szczepaniak competing in a ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo which is privately run by the Lotos rally team, won the WRC3 category at the recent Rally Turkey. Right now, 2017 WRC2 champion Pontus Tidemand (SWE) and co-driver Patrick Barth (SWE) lead the WRC2 championship standings in a private ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo run by Toksport WRT. In 2020 a total of 15 teams run a ŠKODA, the majority of the 35-strong field of Rally2 vehicles.
The Rally Italia Sardegna, which is held on sandy and stony gravel roads, features 16 special stages totalling 238.84 kilometres.

...that the Italian round of the FIA World Rally Championship until 2003 was held on the mainland, based in Sanremo, before it moved to the Mediterranean island of Sardinia?
