Mladá Boleslav, 22 February 2024 – Running a Škoda Fabia in the 2024 FIA European Rally Championship (ERC) can save teams money. Škoda Motorsport has launched a bonus programme for most successful customers. Deadline for the application is 15 March 2024.

„We support our loyal customers and motivate teams to run one of our rally cars. At the same time we are strengthening the position of the Škoda brand in the ERC,” said Michal Hrabánek, Head of Škoda Motorsport, during the presentation of the unique bonus programme. The Mladá Boleslav based manufacturer has launched a contest around the 2024 FIA European Rally Championship (ERC).

The competition is open to all Škoda Motorsport registered teams running any of the Rally2 variants of the Škoda Fabia. Applications - and questions concerning the contest – must be sent by mail before 15 March 2024 to motorsport@skoda-auto.cz. Regulations and application forms are available on the Škoda Motorsport website.

At each of the series’ eight rounds the prize pot is filled with up to 28,000 Euro. If a crew of a registered team wins with a Škoda Fabia RS Rally2, Škoda Fabia Rally2 evo or Škoda Fabia Rally2, Škoda Motorsport honours this success with a 15,000 Euro voucher. Second place is worth 8,000 Euro, and a third placed Škoda crew’s team still receives 5,000 Euro. The vouchers can be redeemed on orders of spare parts from Škoda Motorsport.

The main prize of the contest will be given away at season’s end. If the winner of the 2024 ERC’s drivers’ title competes with a Škoda, his team will get a discount of 50,000 Euro when buying a new Škoda Fabia RS Rally2 from Škoda Motorsport. “With this prize, we honour the performance of our most successful customer teams in the ERC and offer them substantial help to fund their 2025 campaign,” explains Lucie Bortová, Head of Customer Programme at Škoda Motorsport.

In addition to the bonus programme, Škoda Motorsport supports its customer teams with a special service: During selected events of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) and the ERC, the dedicated spare parts truck will be back! At these events, teams running cars from Škoda Motorsport can buy necessary spare parts which they might not have available from their own stock. This opportunity often prevents retirements and helps crews to finish the event. „The idea of having a truck full of spare parts stationed right in the service park of selected rallies is big support for our customer teams,“ describes Radek Těšínský, who manages the logistics of this support programme.

With the spare parts service during rallies Škoda Motorsport gives its customers another important advantage and underlines its strategy of putting the customer’s needs first. „The goal is always the same,“ adds Lucie Bortová. “To make sure, as many of our cars as possible finish a rally.“
