    WRC Tour de Corse: Andreas Mikkelsen with a convincing lead

    Andreas Mikkelsen and Anders Jæger-Synnevaag (NOR/NOR) storm into a convincing lead in the WRC 2 category in their ŠKODA FABIA R5. “In contrast to the works teams in the WRC, we have to drive in our category without the gravel crews that provide us with information on loose gravel and dirt on the road. Controlled risk is the order of the day. I’m really pleased that our ŠKODA FABIA R5 is running so well,” said Mikkelsen at the end of the first leg in Bastia.
