At the iconic Autodromo Nazionale di Monza, the 2020 FIA World Rally Championship ended in style. ACI Rally Monza, brought into the calendar on short notice, turned out as most dramatic. Already on Friday’s first leg, completely run inside the boundaries of the famous Italian F1 race track, the teams had to fight heavy rain and extremely slippery conditions. Only Andreas Mikkelsen from Norway, driving an Eurosol Racing Team Hungary prepared ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo, seemed unimpressed. In WRC3, the former factory driver was a class of his own, building up a lead of nearly one minute until day’s end. Finnish ŠKODA privateers Emil Lindholm/Mikael Korhonen held second from ŠKODA Motorsport supported Oliver Solberg (SWE), who lost some time after stalling the engine. ŠKODA also was the leading car in WRC2 with Pontus Tidemand targeting his second WRC2 title after 2017. Competing in their first WRC rally of 2020, Jan Kopecký (CZE) and co-driver Jan Hloušek (CZE) in the second Toksport WRT Team run ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo struggled to get up to speed in these challenging conditions and settled for category fourth.
