Andreas Mikkelsen plans to score as many points as possible on the upcoming gravel rounds in San Marino and Romania as he continues his bid to become the first driver to win the Intercontinental Rally Challenge title twice.

Mikkelsen holds a six-point advantage heading to Rally San Marino this week, despite crashing out of round six, the Geko Ypres Rally in Belgium. He won in San Marino last season when the event counted as a round of the Italian Gravel Trophy.

“We head to San Marino leading the IRC and we have this and another really strong gravel rally in Romania coming up, so the aim is to come away from both events with as many points as possible,” said the ŠKODA UK Motorsport talent. “I feel very comfortable and confident in the Fabia S2000, and whilst no rally is easy, we have a great opportunity to make the most of what could turn out to be a decisive time in this year’s series.”
