PON­TUS TIDE­MAND

Motor Sport News - - Rally Sweden | Round 02 -

Af­ter the drub­bing Pon­tus Tide­mand and the whole WRC2 pack took off An­dreas Mikkelsen in the French Alps, the tall Swede wanted this win badly. And he drove bril­liantly. The fac­tory Skoda driver gave best to Ole Chris­tian Veiby early doors, but once we were in the woods there was only go­ing to be one winner. Tide­mand was on su­perb form to take a dom­i­nant class win at home. What was dou­bly sat­is­fy­ing was see­ing off his step-fa­ther, Hen­ning Sol­berg, who was a late WRC2 en­try in a Fabia R5.
