    SOLBERG AND MIKKELSEN TO DEBUT PIRELLI’S WRC TYRES
    Former world champion Petter Solberg will return to WRC action at Rally Italia Sardegna (8 - 11 October) when Pirelli debuts the tyre to be used in next year’s FIA World Rally Championship.

    The Norwegian will drive a Pirelli-liveried Citroën C3 World Rally Car in the spectacular rally-closing Wolf Power Stage in Sardinia. The car will be fitted with Pirelli’s latest-generation Scorpion KX tyres.

    Solberg, who won the 2003 world title with the Italian company and won Sardinia’s inaugural WRC event in 2004, will be co-driven through the 6.89km Sassari - Argentiera test on Sunday lunchtime by Pirelli development driver Andreas Mikkelsen.

    The duo will be first into the gravel stage, showcasing the new tyre before the competitive action begins.

    Mikkelsen will debut the Scorpion KX tyre in public three days earlier at the rally’s Olmedo shakedown test on Thursday morning. He will give passenger rides through the 3.79km stage to selected journalists to demonstrate the capabilities of the tyre on rough gravel.

    Put a siren on it, and make it the last control-car for that stage?

    Or, maybe just put a mic on Mikkelsen, drivers tend to scream when they are riding along!

    For result, I'd pick Solberg for SD and Mikkelsen for PS (which he won last year).

    Then again teams would scream if there is any chance of losing points (on Sardinia even early cars can get good PS times), so guess that's the reason they went with this order.

    I guess they will have to be official entries to drive the stages and to get the WRC+ and tv coverage which Pirelli will want.

    Finally the route preview. One almost completely new stage and a few variations for the old ones, and a very unique structure on the Friday and Saturday stages. No audience, no super specials.
