What To Expect From Day Two Of The Central European Rally
The first full day of the Central European Rally will see drivers face two loops of three stages totalling 60.90 km each loop and 121.80 km total. Andreas Mikkelsen will be first on the road for the WRC2 class. Road sweeping won’t be an issue for Mikkelsen as with any event the Rally1 cars will run beforehand. However, Mikkelsen is in the best WRC2 position as overtime more mud and dirt will get swept out onto the stage via drivers cutting. Yohan Rossel will be second on the road with Gus Greensmith third.
