Jan Kopecký / Pavel Dresler are dominating the Czech Rally Championship since they achieved a maiden win with the ŠKODA FABIA R5 on its debut at Rally Šumava Klatovy 2015. Since then, they won every event. Driving a ŠKODA FABIA R5 they collected twelve victories in a row. Upcoming weekend (19/20 May 2017) they are targeting a hattrick win in MČR 2017 and the third victory in a row at the Rally Český Krumlov. For Kopecký / Dresler, being the spearhead of ŠKODA Motorsport in the Czech Rally Championship, the goal for 2017 is crystal clear: winning the MČR title for a third time in a row.

Last year, Jan Kopecký and co-driver Pavel Dresler won the Rally Český Krumlov ahead of their teammates Pontus Tidemand / Jonas Andersson, who are not competing in ŠKODA’s backyard this year. Instead the Swedish pairing on the same weekend is entered into the World Championship Rally de Portugal.
