Mikkelsen: Targa Florio rivals will be fast

Andreas Mikkelsen says it won’t just be the temperature that will be hot when the Intercontinental Rally Challenge visits Sicily for the famous Targa Florio next month.

The IRC champion says the competition on Targa Florio-Rally Internazionale Di Sicilia will also raise the temperature with multiple winner Paolo Andreucci particularly hard to match.

“There will be a lot of fast Italian drivers who will be super, super fast because they know the stages very well so it won’t be easy,” said Mikkelsen, who will drive a ŠKODA UK Motorsport-run Fabia Super 2000 on the event.

“For sure I hope to be up there fighting and hopefully I can at least beat the drivers who are not Italian.”
