Rally Estonia: SKODA driver Andreas Mikkelsen wants to strengthen lead in WRC2 category
Andreas Mikkelsen: These two events were a good warm-up for Rally Estonia with its fast and smooth gravel stages. I finished second overall in 2019, when the rally was held as a promotional event. I missed to drive the event last year when it was a round of the FIA World Rally Championship for the first time. I cannot wait to return to the fantastic gravel stages and the enthusiastic rally fans. During the first half of the WRC season, Mikkelsen’s Toksport WRT teammate Marco Bulacia from Bolivia showed together with his co-driver Marcelo Der Ohannesian (ARG) a steady learning curve. Thanks to good results, the South-American ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo crew holds third position in the WRC2 overall standings.
With their privately entered ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo, Kajetan Kajetanowicz and co-driver Maciej Szczepaniak already won WRC3 at Rally Croatia and Vodafone Rally de Portugal. The “Russian rocket” and co-driver Yaroslav Fedorov compete in a Team Sports Racing Technologies/SRT ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo.
that Rally Estonia is the biggest motorsport event in the Baltic countries and that Rallying is one of the most popular sports in Estonia?
