NEWS | ERC | MIKKELSEN WILL NOT DEFEND ERC TITLE IN 2022.23/01/2022 Off By Andy C
Reigning WRC2 & ERC Champ Andreas Mikkelsen is unlikely to defend his FIA European Rally Championship title this year.
Talking at the FIA post-rally press conference in Monaco today after winning the WRC2 class on the Monte Carlo Rally, the Norwegian responded to a question about his programme this year.
What is your programme, will you do ERC as well this year?
I will not do the ERC. It was so busy with rallies coming straight after each other. We do this rally and Sweden, but we didn’t decide after that. After this weekend we see there was a lot of issues with the fuel and engines and Marquito’s [Bulacia] engine stopped working. I think we need to get to the bottom of that before we start another rally. We don’t want to risk that.
