Something had been simmering in the pot for days. But at the headquarters of the Cinzano Rally Team, lips remained firmly sealed until confirmation arrived from Hyundai Motorsport. Andreas Mikkelsen will be participating in the Alba rally aboard the Korean automaker’s car. The Hyundai Motorsport team driver, after taking part in the Monte Carlo Rally and in preparation for the upcoming WRC event in Croatia, will join a list of entrants that is, as usual, of high quality and includes some particularly prestigious names from the world of rallying.

Mikkelsen will be competing in the #RA PLUS, the race that accompanies the Italian national rally challenge in Alba. An event that gains an extra attraction with his presence and is sure to provide additional adrenaline and spectacle.

Andreas stated: “I can’t wait to be in Alba. It’s been a long time since I was in a car at the Monte Carlo Rally. It’s fantastic to use an event like this to strengthen my connection with the car ahead of the WRC Croatia Rally. I won’t have a test before this rally, so it’s a good opportunity to try out the machine. I’m very happy to be back behind the wheel.”
