When successful rally racers thank their fans, it can make for a captivating spectacle. This is precisely what happened at the end of last year when ŠKODA Motorsport delighted its fans with an entertaining, high-octane video.

Just as the ŠKODA team was collecting accolades in the World Rally Championship, the video, after being published, took off at dizzying speed and zoomed to a million views on social networks. ŠKODA FABIA R5 driving through downtown Prague as a taxi gathered more than 2.5 million views on YouTube and over 940,000 on Facebook.

100 PEOPLE IN ACTION

The filming itself took place before last Christmas. A team of almost a hundred people contributed to it. The racing taxi was also accompanied by a specially modified six-wheeled buggy liberally festooned with cameras, a drone was capturing everything from above, and an entire team of camera operators was engaged in the streets.

Acquiring new fans is welcomed also by Jan Kopecký, who drove the car through the metropolis’s historic centre.
