A delighted Andreas Mikkelsen said that finishing 2nd on the Sanremo Rally, an event he expected to be his least favourable in this year’s Intercontinental Rally Challenge, was “like a win” after he scored a sensational result in his ŠKODA UK Motorsport Fabia S2000. Co-driven by Ola Fløene, a relaxed Andreas led the rally three times, set four fastest stage times and came within 1.5 seconds of winning one of the world’s classic asphalt rallies. Read More »

With perfect young night driving vision, Andreas Mikkelsen adores rallying in the dark – so even without much experience of the Sanremo Rally (22-24 September), the 22-year old ŠKODA UK Motorsport Fabia S2000 driver is aiming for a good result on the event, thanks, in part, to a planned attack over the long 27.34 mile (44km) Ronde stage which takes place at night.

There will be a monster in the moonlit Liguria mountain range next weekend – and unusually for a Škoda story, we’re not talking about Yeti. This monster is what Škoda UK Motorsport driver Guy Wilks describes as the 44km (27.34 mile) special stage, which he says will hold the key to success on this year’s Sanremo Rally (24-25 September).

The said challenging Italian Ronde stage, which is the second longest in the 2010 Intercontinental Rally Challenge (eclipsed only by the 45.17km/28.06 mile St. Pierreville – Antraigues stage on Rallye Monte Carlo), is the giant test in a colossal event which will see Guy and co-driver Phil Pugh complete 220kms (136.7 miles) of high-speed cliff-top competition in their Škoda Fabia S2000 Facelift.
