Andreas Mikkelsen made his debut on the Citroën C3 WRC


The pre-test of Citroën Racing to face the Rally of Italy-Sardinia have been the time in which Andreas Mikkelsen and Anders Jager have been uploaded for the first time in the Citroen C3 WRC 2017. The couple in norway, who returns to the premier class in the WRC after competing in the first events on the calendar with a Skoda Fabia R5 official, will compete in a timely manner in the sections Italian with the third in the C3 after occupying the site of Stéphane Lefebvre. Mikkelsen will team with Kris Meeke comes a much questioned to Italy and with Craig Breen.

Andreas Mikkelsen was one of the great victims of the hasty and unexpected launch of Volkswagen Motorsport of the WRC. The Norwegian stayed composed and without a World Rally Car of new generation. Fruit of this quality came to an agreement with Hyundai Motorsport to test the Hyundai i20 WRC Coupe in Portugal and has now landed in Citroën Racing, in which a priori has been drawn as a timely agreement in which both parties come out ahead. Andreas Mikkelsen can compete with a Citroen C3 WRC and the computer to receive a different opinion and not vitiated on the performance of your car.

This test with the Citroën C3 WRC and its participation in the Rally of Italy-Sardinia is not the first experience of Andreas Mikkelsen, with Citroen, since the Norwegian has already had the option of testing a Citroën C4 WRC in 2008, and although many years have passed since then, the situation is somewhat similar. At least that convey the words of Yves Matton: Mikkelsen has nothing to prove. We are not going to put pressure, just want you to find your level and pile. I am convinced that can have a major role in Italy if you get to feel good in the car during this test”.
