Andreas Mikkelsen in IRC

Postby Sulland » 08 Feb 2010 12:18

Mr Mikkelsen will do 7 rounds in a M-Sport run Fiesta S2000 in 2010.
He will do these rallies:
4.-6. juni, Rally Sardinia, Italia (grus=gravel)
24.-26. juni, Ypres Rally, Belgia (asfalt)
27.-29. august, Barum Rally, Tsjekkia (asfalt)
9.-11. september, Rally Principe de Asturias, Spania (asfalt)
23.-25. september, Rally Sanremo, Italia (asphalt/grus)
14.-16. oktober, Rally Skottland, Storbritannia (grus)
4.-6. november, Kypros Rally, Kypros, (asfalt/grus)

He will use Rally Sweden to get to know the car and his crew !

Not sure if Hankook is still going to deliver tyres, or if he will use another brand.

Great news to add another strong driver to the IRC and especially with a Fiesta - so we should now have 4 car brands regularly competing in the IRC this year with works or semi-works teams.

I expect Mikkelsen to challenge for a win on a couple of rounds, but the championship will be hard.

Re: Hankook, I would expect him to run Hankook tyres since I thought they would be his sponsor this year. But if M-Sport are running him maybe he will only be allowed to use Pirellis?

Will be very interesting indeed to se Andreas in the fiesta again. He has been testing the Hankook tyre on two rallies now, trying to get to know them. Not sure on the result, but it is a factor in Sardinia.

Anyone that knows the differences btw the BFGs and the Hankooks on asfalt ?

Looks like these are the ones he can choose from: http://www.hankooktire-eu.com/tires/racing-tires.html

This might sound a bit snobby but I see Mikkelssen being on Hankook as a disadvantage for him. I just doubt they can compete with the experience of BFGoodrich. However being in IRC will be great exposure for them, and of course they are funding Andreas' programme so they are very welcome!

Mikkelsen has been testing: http://translate.google.no/translate?u= ... =&ie=UTF-8

Sounds like he is happy, but will have stiff opposition on especially the first one !
