The 2017 FIA World Rally Championship returns this weekend (5-8 October) with its eleventh round, the RallyRACC Catalunya – Costa Daurada. This is only mixed-surface event on the WRC calendar which makes it a unique challenge for drivers and teams alike.

There are two ŠKODA Motorsport cars competing in Spain. Jan Kopecký and Pavel Dresler have fond memories of the Rally Catalunya after winning the WRC2 event here last year and finishing just 10 seconds off the win in 2015.

Driving for the ŠKODA Motorsport for the very first time is the young Finnish driver Juuso Nordgren and his co-driver Tapio Suominen. Nordgren is a rising talent in Finnish rallying and has two second places under his belt in Finland this season (both in a ŠKODA FABIA R5).

ŠKODA Motorsport is looking to secure a tenth WRC2 victory of the season for the FABIA R5 and you can follow their progress right here with our exclusive picture gallery.
