RallyRACC Rally de España: SKODA driver Andreas Mikkelsen wins WRC2 Drivers’ title*
It’s super weird to win the WRC2 Drivers’ title while sitting in the service park. Still, it’s an incredible feeling to take overall victory against such a tough competition. The season went perfect, my ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo was reliable all the way, Mikkelsen commented. Michal Hrabánek, Head of ŠKODA Motorsport, added: Congratulations to Andreas for winning the 2021 WRC2 Drivers’ title. I’m proud of our cooperation with him, which started already twelve years ago with the ŠKODA FABIA S2000. Today Andreas added another valuable championship to the impressive title collection of the ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo.
Although competing for the first time on world level at the wheel of a ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo, Gryazin was on the pace right from the start.
