    WRC France: ŠKODA Customer Teams finish strongly in Corsica

    The 2017 Tour de Corse proved to be an unforgettable event for all sorts of reasons. It was a hugely demanding rally for drivers and cars with plenty of punctures and other issues on the twisting mountain roads. But there were plenty of positive stories to emerge from this 10-stage, 316km long event, including the impressive debut in a ŠKODA FABIA R5 of Stéphane Sarrazin. And of course, there was a FABIA R5 victory to celebrate as well.

    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.

The organisers call it the rally of the 10.000 corners – although nobody so far has actually counted them. In Corsica, the fight against the clock faces virtually no straights longer than 50 metres.
