2012 was an incredible year for ŠKODA UK Motorsport, with Andreas Mikkelsen becoming the first driver in history to win back-to-back Intercontinental Rally Challenge (IRC) titles, after finishing 2nd on the Cyprus Rally, in his Fabia S2000.
Partnered by Ola Fløene, who retained the co-drivers’ title, Andreas won 2 rounds of the 2012 IRC, finished 2nd on 5 occasions and recorded 58 stage wins. In fact, over the 2011 and 2012 IRC seasons, Andreas recorded an impressive 99 stage victories! Andreas was also presented with the Colin McRae IRC Flat Out Trophy for his achievements in 2012.
