More than 100 years of tradition
The ŠKODA brand has been active in motorsport since 1901 and since then, it has collected many titles with many different cars. In 2015, the ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 became the flagship of ŠKODA’s motorsport activities in Mladá Boleslav, continuing many decades of tradition.
In the World Rally Championship, ŠKODA Motorsport managed to score five manufacturers' titles between 2015 and 2019 with the ŠKODA FABIA Rally2. In 2016, Esapekka Lappi also became the world champion, a feat repeated by Pontus Tidemand in 2017, Jan Kopecký in 2018 and Kalle Rovanperä in 2019.
On their home soil, Jan Kopecký and Pavel Dresler have been dominating the Czech Rally Championship since 2015. In the 2020 season, ŠKODA Motorsport will mainly focus on supporting the customer teams and talented young drivers while also defending their last year’s title in the Czech Rally Championship.
