Tour de Corse: Convincing win for Andreas Mikkelsen ŠKODA claims top two spots in the WRC 2 table

› Andreas Mikkelsen and co-driver Anders Jæger-Synnevaag celebrate a start-to-finish victory in WRC 2 with their ŠKODA FABIA R5 at the Tour de Corse
› Jan Kopecký and Pavel Dresler fight back to secure important WRC 2 points
› ŠKODA holds the top two spots in the WRC 2 table, thanks to Pontus Tidemand and Andreas Mikkelsen
› Norwegian juniors Veiby/Skjaermœn take fifth place in their private ŠKODA FABIA R5

10 April 2017

Bastia/Corsica, 9 April 2017 – Andreas Mikkelsen and co-driver Anders Jæger-Synnevaag led the field from start-to-finish in their ŠKODA FABIA R5 to score a convincing victory that never looked at risk in the WRC 2 category at the Tour de Corse. Jan Kopecký and co-driver Pavel Dresler put in an impressive performance in the second works ŠKODA FABIA R5 following steering problems on the first day. The fight back, including two fastest stage times, put them in seventh place in the WRC 2 rankings, scoring important championship points.

​“It’s just amazing! Our second rally in the ŠKODA Fabia R5 and our second win. I controlled my speed on the 54-kilometre special stage on Sunday. I wanted to secure my lead, and there was no way I was going to put this win in danger by taking any big risks. It was really important for me not to lose concentration – which I managed. A big thanks to the team for giving me such a great car,” said a visibly delighted Andreas Mikkelsen, who scored no fewer than seven fastest stage times.

After suffering steering problems on the first day, Jan Kopecký was nevertheless satisfied with the final outcome. “I think that, without the problems, there would definitely have been a podium place for me in there,” stressed the Czech champion. The points for seventh place in the WRC 2 classification now put Kopecký in sixth place in the championship.

The Norwegian junior team Ole Christian Veiby/Stig Rune Skjaermœn ran into bad luck on the final day. Tyre damage on the rally’s longest stage ultimately cost them what seemed like a safe fourth place. However, Veiby turned in a commendable performance on his first tarmac rally, moving into fifth place in the WRC 2 table after the Tour de Corse.

Not only can ŠKODA celebrate its fourth win in a row in this year’s WRC 2, Andreas Mikkelsen and Pontus Tidemand (who didn’t compete at the Tour de Corse) now hold a clear lead at the top of the championship table with 50 points each.

Overview
The 2019 FIA European Rally Championship fires up in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean from 21-23 March when the Azores Rallye hosts the opening exchanges of what is set to be another action-packed chase for on-stage glory. Established stars, national champions, category stalwarts – plus a host of young prospects aiming to prove their talent in ERC Junior – will be competing on a mixture of asphalt and gravel events during an eight-round season between now and November. And they will do so in an exciting array of machinery. With several stages from the Azores broadcast live, a thrilling start to the season is in store.

Azores Rallye in 100 words
Based on São Miguel, the mid-Atlantic archipelago’s largest island, the event celebrated turning 50 in 2015 and remains one of the most spectacular on the international calendar. Gravel tests criss-cross breath-taking scenery and lush countryside, and are characterised by their sandy surface and narrow, undulating nature. And because the stages are often no wider than the width of a car, there is no margin for error, particularly on the iconic Sete Cidades, which runs along the rim of a volcanic crater lake, and where the weather can switch from sunshine to showers to fog in the blink of an eye.

What’s new for 2019?
Several changes have been made to this year’s route with new and tweaked stages – including the untried Mediana Remédios test on leg one. The City Show, the non-competitive pre-rally demonstration run in Ponta Delgada on Wednesday evening, has also been revised as organisers usher in the changes.

Changes to the ERC include the renaming of the ERC Junior categories: ERC Junior Under 28 becomes ERC1 Junior, ERC Junior U27 becomes ERC3 Junior with continued support from Pirelli. Meanwhile, R4-K and RGT cars are eligible for ERC2 points, while Rally Hungary joins the calendar for the first time as the deciding round in November.

Don’t miss!
Seven stages, including both runs of Sete Cidades on Friday 22 March, will be broadcast live on RTP Açores, and streamed on the official ERC website, FIAERC.com, and social media channels. However, before viewers are treated to the stunning Sete Cidades, they can enjoy the battle on the streets of Ponta Delgada, where the City Show takes place on the evening of Wednesday 20 March. On Thursday 21 March, fans can then watch live the event-opening Coroa da Mata stage followed by action from the Marques superspecial, which runs through the amphitheatre of a quarry. As well as the two visits to Sete Cidades, Friday’s live programming also includes the return to the Marques superspecial. Live coverage from Tronqueira, which hosts the second stage on Saturday 23 March and the rally’s deciding test that afternoon, will be the focus of leg three’s live output, which concludes with the podium finish in Ponta Delgada in early evening.

The Azores archipelago is located roughly equidistant between Lisbon and New York and is made up of nine islands. The fertile soil is perfect for a variety of crops and grazing for livestock.

Ribeira Grande, on São Miguel’s north coast, is becoming established as Portugal’s surfing capital with a number of national and international events being hosted there.

Along the way, it will visit some of the world’s most historic rallycross tracks, while introducing two exciting new challenges in the shape of Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit and the legendary Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. Following its successful debut last year, Silverstone’s Speedmachine Festival returns on May 25 26.

GCK announce 2019 FIA World Rallycross line up

FIA World Rallycross Championship team GC KOMPETITION (GCK), founded by French athlete Guerlain Chicherit, proudly announces its participation in the 2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship with two permanent teams.

GCK entered their debut season in 2018 with two brand-new Renault Megane R.S. RX, before expanding the team
to three vehicles at the USA and Germany WRX events. Building upon this successful debut season GCK will now
expand their operations to include four permanent drivers in the 2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship.

Returning as GC KOMPETITION team mate to team owner Chicherit in the GCK Megane R.S. RX is Swedish
European Rallycross Champion Anton Marklund.
Joining the GCK squad for 2019 as part of the all new GCK Academy team are RX2 Champion Cyril Raymond
(FRA) and RX2 Vice Champion Guillaume De Ridder (BEL) who will campaign a 2019 evolution of the successful

GCK Renault Clio R.S. RX.

GCK has appointed French engineering company FORS Performance to facilitate all WRX race operations from
2019 for both teams. Chicherit created the ‘GCK Academy’ team with a vision to further young rallycross talent and support junior drivers, giving them the opportunity to compete on a world championship motorsport stage. Having witnessed the growth of the FIA World Rallycross Championship and the increasing difficulties junior drivers face to develop in World Championship cars, Chicherit decided to start the GCK Academy, entering his GCK Clio R.S. RX into World
RX and adding 2 talented young race drivers to the GCK family.

Chicherit commented: «2019 is a really big year for GCK. We debuted the team in the FIA World Rallycross
Championship in 2018 and have been working really hard to further develop the GCK Megane R.S. RX, the first car to have been designed and built from scratch to compete in rallycross. To now enter the Championship with 4 cars is a big step. It allows me to compete in the GCK Megane R.S. RX alongside Anton who I’ve been working with closely over the last few months but also to support two super talented junior drivers in Cyril and Guillaume to develop in a World Championship driving the GCK Clio R.S. RX. I’m really excited to see what the season will bring.»

Returning to the GCK Megane RS RX for 2019 Anton Marklund commented:
«I’ve already been in contact with GCK since July 2018. This means we have already had a lot of time to work
together towards the upcoming season. First, I raced the GCK Mégane in the last 3 races of the 2018 season and
worked with Guerlain to further put together a development list for the car.
Then FORS Performance offered me to help them develop the GCK Clio during the winter which means I got to spend a lot of time and work closely with the team operating the cars this year.
With all those opportunities ahead of this season, Ialready feel very much at home in the team. I’m sure that with
the development and preparations we all have done during the winter, we have a good chance to race for top spots
in the 2019 season. I want to thank Guerlain and Bilstein for their trust and support and can’t wait to get the season
started!»

Following a successful 2018 rookie season in the FIA European Rallycross Championship, Cyril Raymond is
aiming to consistently compete for top six positions and work closely with his new team mate to bring success to
the GCK Academy programme. Cyril commented:
«My vision for 2019 is to improve my driving in supercars and to be a good teammate. I would like to show my
potential behind the wheel but also in the paddock at work. My target is to be in the final of the every race.

Joining GCK Academy is a really important moment of my career. I have finally become a race driver of the FIA World Rallycross Championship! It’s a dream come true. I’ll never forget this moment.»

Completing the GCK Academy roster, Belgium’s Guillaume De Ridder was identified by Guerlain Chicherit as a future World Rallycross star from when they both raced in RX2 during 2017. Throughout 2018, the GCK owner monitored De Ridder closely with the intention of presenting a Supercar opportunity to the Belgian.

Excited by the opportunity, Guillaume commented:
«Joining the GCK Academy is an incredible opportunity for me ! Being selected as one of the two junior drivers
representing the team is an awesome recognition. It has been many years now that I have been working so hard
and have given everything I had (sometimes even more than that!) in order to reach the highest level in motorsport, so it is finally a dream come true ! I would like to thank Guerlain Chicherit and all the GCK team for the opportunity they are giving me and I will work even harder to show them they have made the right choice. I am extremely excited and I can’t wait to start working with such a professional and ambitious team!»
