Mladá Boleslav, 13 October 2021 – As penultimate round of the 2021 FIA World #rally Championship, #rallyracc #rally de España (14 – 17 October 2021) takes the teams to Catalonia. As planned, #wrc2 Drivers’ classification leader Andreas Mikkelsen (NOR) of ŠKODA Motorsport supported team Toksport WRT skips the Spanish #event. On the other hand, his Bolivian teammate Marco Bulacia (ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo) will be after more experience on tarmac roads and more #wrc2 championship points. Driving a privately entered ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo, Kajetan Kajetanowicz and co-driver Maciej Szczepaniak (POL/POL) chase the lead in #wrc3. Entered into the same category, 21 years old Czech Dominik Stříteský and co-driver Jiří Hovorka (ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo) face their very first FIA World #rally Championship #event as part of team Toksport WRT.

For Andreas Mikkelsen, the 2021 season could be his most successful in terms of titles. In the FIA European #rally Championship (ERC), the Norwegian of ŠKODA Motorsport supported team Toksport WRT enjoys a dominant overall lead. Right now, Mikkelsen is also leading the 
WRC2 category of the FIA World #rally Championship (WRC). Because he can bring only six results from maximum seven events into his final score, the Norwegian choose to skip the penultimate of the twelve WRC rounds. Thus, Mikkelsen’s young teammate Marco Bulacia will fly 
the Toksport WRT flag in #wrc2. After a string of good results, the Bolivian currently lies third in the category points standings. “After the gravel events, I am now looking forward to the all-tarmac Spanish round of the championship. The test sessions on asphalt and the Czech Championship round #rally Bohemia gave me a lot of confidence in my ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo. I am for sure aiming for another good result,” says Bulacia, who is joined as usual by co-driver Marcelo Der Ohannesian from Argentina.
