SKODA dominating IRC 2012

MINI driver Dani Sordo's victory on the Tour of Corsica may have ended SKODA's unbroken sequence of wins in this year's Intercontinental Rally Challenge, but Jan Kopecky's title challenge has not slowed.

The Czech's second-place finish and Andreas Mikkelsen's fifth place mean that Kopecky is only 13 points behind the standings leader.

And the team's strong performance means that SKODA now holds a 64-point advantage over rival makers Peugeot.

Factory SKODA driver Kopecky said: “This rally was one of the most difficult events in my career so far. We did our best to win here, putting in all we could.”
