ACI Rally Monza: SKODA FABIA Rally2 evo drivers decide WRC2 Teams’ Championship*
While Mikkelsen lost a full two minutes while changing a punctured tyre in stage 6, Gryazin came away with only a 45 seconds time loss after hitting a concrete block in the same test.
Although Andreas Mikkelsen took back some seconds by scoring a couple of WRC2 stage wins and Marco Bulacia restarted on Sunday, it was to no avail for Toksport WRT.
Meanwhile in WRC3, ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo driver Kajetan Kajetanowicz of Polish Team Orlen and Frenchman Yohan Rossel came to the 2021 season’s finale as the only title contenders. Already the first leg showed, that Rossel was a touch faster on the mountain roads while Kajetanowicz and co-driver Maciej Szczepaniak held the upper hands on the Autodromo Nazionale stages.
And what a thriller that was: Rossel finished the 14.62 kilometres test 4.7 seconds faster than Kajetanowicz. The ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo from Poland finally had to be content with second overall in WRC3. Because Rossel changed his navigator during the season, at least Szczepaniak was crowned WRC3 Co-Drivers’ Champion*.
