The third round of the 2018 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) sees the teams heading to Mexico and the first gravel rally of the season. The Rally Guanajuato México first joined the WRC calendar back in 2004, which means this is its fifteenth anniversary at this level. That makes it the longest-running world championship motorsport event in Mexico. Hopefully, this year’s event will be another truly special rally and live up to the occasion.
The 17-year-old Finnish driver Kalle Rovanperä will be making his debut for the ŠKODA Motorsport team this weekend at the Rally Guanajuato Mexico (8-11 March). In doing so, he will become the eighth Finnish driver to pilot a ŠKODA works car over the past two decades.
Round 3 of the 2018 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) sees teams and drivers heading to Central America for the Rally Guanajuato Mexico (8-11 March). There will be three ŠKODA FABIA R5s taking part, all of which are registered for the WRC2 Championship.
The ŠKODA FABIA R5 showed all its qualities yet again at the Rally Sweden (15-18 February), in the second round of the 2018 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC), as no fewer than four cars from Mladá Boleslav finished in the top 5 of the WRC2 category, while five of the top 6 cars in the RC2 class (which includes those not registered for the WRC2 championship) were FABIA R5s too.
The second round of the 2018 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) sees teams heading north to the frozen forests of Scandinavia and the Rally Sweden. This winter rally takes place from 15 to 18 February in the region of Värmland and will also see drivers crossing the border into neighbouring Norway.
ŠKODA has achieved some impressive results at the Rally Sweden over the years, with every car entered putting in some noteworthy performances.
The second round of the 2018 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) will be the Rally Sweden (15-18 February) and it will see the joint highest number of ŠKODA FABIA R5s ever to enter a WRC event. A total of 15 FABIA R5s are expected to be on the start-line, including two works crews.
Whether young or experienced, it seems drivers are always fast in a ŠKODA FABIA R5. That was certainly the case at the Rallye Monte Carlo where a teenager making his first start at this event and an experienced veteran driving here for the twentieth time both managed to steer their ŠKODAs onto the podium.
