With weather playing a major role during leg 2 of ACI Rally Monza (3-6 December 2020), ŠKODA crews experienced ups and downs in categories WRC2 and WRC3. Overnight WRC2 leaders Pontus Tidemand/Patrik Barth (SWE/SWE) struggled with the tyre choice for their ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo and reached the day’s finish in second position. Better luck for WRC3 dominators Andreas Mikkelsen/Anders Jæger (ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo) from Norway. Their lead was big enough to defend top spot despite similar tyre woes. In their wake, ŠKODA Motorsport supported Oliver Solberg (SWE) and co-driver Aaron Johnston (IRL) overtook Finnish ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo privateers Emil Lindholm/Mikael Korhonen for second position in WRC3.
