    WRC Spain: Challenging first day; Kopecký third and Nordgren fifth

    ŠKODA Motorsport teams Jan Kopecký / Pavel Dresler and Juuso Nordgren / Tapio Suominen faced a challenging start at RallyRACC Catalunya – Rallye de España, the Spanish round of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC). Driving a ŠKODA FABIA R5 Czech Rally Champion Jan Kopecký was delayed during the third stage when he caught the competitor in front of him. Due to visibility problems in the dust he lost more than one minute. In the same stage, Juuso Nordgren almost had to stop when a competitor blocked the road after an accident. Putting those mishaps aside both ŠKODA factory teams fought back to third respective fifth position in the overall standings of the WRC2 category.

This year’s event will see Kopecký looking to defend the victory he enjoyed here in the WRC2 championship last year. But his history with the event goes back a lot further than that.
