Skoda will appear at the International Czech Republic Rally Championship this year

This year, Skoda's team will appear at the International Czech Republic Rally. The team will be represented by one of its factory crews, Jan Kopecky and Petr Stary and they will start with the Wallachia Rally, the first race of the championship in last the weekend of March.
Skoda is celebrating 110 years of its motorsport efforts and by using a factory Fabia Super 2000 Skoda is commemorating its historical achievements at the Monte Carlo Rally. The special retro-design is a reminder of the legendary Skoda 130 RS, a car that brought a lot of achievements, including the victory at the runner-up position at the Monte Carlo Rally in 1977 and many others in the Under-1,300 cm3 category.
If we go back in time, in 2004 Kopecky was the Czech Republic Rally Champion with his Fabia WRC. But that is not all. He has also taken part in a lot of race series like IRC and CIR Italian Championship and of his plans for this year is the IRC (as a member of Skoda Motorsport).
