WATCH: WRC2 leader Mikkelsen in trouble on Friday

Andreas Mikkelsen became the second WRC2 title protagonist to hit trouble on Friday morning at Central European Rally when his Škoda Fabia RS Rally2 slid off the road.

Andreas Mikkelsen became the second WRC2 title protagonist to hit trouble on Friday morning at Central European Rally when his Škoda Fabia RS Rally2 slid off the road.



This week's tri-nation fixture offered the Norwegian driver his first real opportunity of claiming the WRC2 title and, when rival Yohan Rossel crashed out on SS3, his chances were heightened further.



Just one stage later, however, Mikkelsen found himself in a similar position to Rossel. After entering a right right corner too fast, his Škoda slid off the road and deep into the Czech foliage.



Spectators eventually managed to get the car back onto the road but the mishap cost several minutes and caused heavy damage to the rear suspension.
