Ready for Rally Sweden 2019

Ready for Rally Sweden 2019

Andreas Mikkelsen and co-driver Anders Jaeger-Amland are looking forward to compete on snow and ice, when Rally Sweden gets underway later this week. Friday’s test will take place on home-soil for the Norwegian.

«Rally Sweden is my absolute favorite! It’s the only proper snow/ ice rally and it is the closest I get to a home-rally. In fact, with Friday stages we cross the border and compete in Norway! That’s very special to me. All the Norwegians and their flags and small fires creates and amazing atmosphere along the stages and it is a giant energy-boost!”

Andreas Mikkelsen have been close to victory several times at Rally Sweden, and on the podium 3 times before. This is the eight time he starts the classic high speed event, named by many drivers as the “playground” on the WRC-calendar.

«I’ve been very close to victory in Sweden a few times, so my expectations this year are very high. We had a good test and I got a very good feeling with the car. We should also be able to take advantage of our starting-position, especially if it snows, it’s better to starter further down the list. If it doesn’t snow and gets icy instead, well – then we just have to deal with that then. No matter what, we come to Sweden to fight for a podium!”
