WINS WRC2 TITLE
AT RALLY SPAIN
Although he was only spectating, Andreas
Mikkelsen left RallyRACC Rally de
España (14–17/10/2021) as newly
crowned WRC2 Driver’s champion*.
With only one more round to go in the FIA
World Rally Championship (WRC), the
ŠKODA Motorsport test driver holds
the WRC2 overall lead ex-aequo with fellow
Norwegian Mads Østberg. As Mikkelsen has
achieved more category victories over the
season and Østberg cannot score points
at the season’s finale, Mikkelsen is
mathematically champion. In contrast, the
title race in WRC3, the category reserved
for private drivers, is still open. Kajetan
Kajetanowicz (ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo)
from Poland finished second in Spain and
conquered the WRC3 points lead.
The category victory went to Emil
Lindholm/Reeta Hämäläinen from Finland,
who competed in a Toksport WRT run
