Rally star helps damsel in distress

Skoda has produced a short video starring Norwegian rally star Andreas Mikkelsen, Amber, and Yasmin Le Bon in celebration of its sponsorship of the Goodword Forest Rally Stage at this year's Festival of Speed event.

The video shows Amber Le Bon - daughter of model Yasmin and Duran Duran lead singer Simon - stranded by the roadside after her car breaks down on the way to the Goodwood Festival of Speed press day.

Andreas, who by chance passes by in his Skoda UK Motorsport Fabia S2000, gives her a lift despite being in a rush to experience the challenging Forest Rally Stage for the first time.

Trying to locate Goodwood House, the Skoda UK star whisks Amber around the 12,000 acre Goodwood Estate, where Yasmin Le Bon and Festival of Speed founder Lord March are patiently waiting for her.

The video of Andreas driving the Fabia S2000 at high-speed around Goodwood can be viewed and is available for download.
