    WRC Germany: Kopecký leads Tidemand after the first leg

    ŠKODA Motorsport crews Jan Kopecký / Pavel Dresler and Pontus Tidemand / Jonas Andersson are holding a double lead after the opening day of ADAC Rallye Deutschland. Already on Thursday evening on the opening street stage in Saarbrücken Czech Rally Champion Kopecký wrote history: After the ŠKODA FABIA R5 driver won the first stage, for the first time ever a WRC2 car took the overall lead of a World Championship rally. During Friday Kopecký defended his lead in the WRC2 category with 5.8 seconds ahead of teammate Pontus Tidemand. If the result is the same at the finish on Sunday, ŠKODA Motorsport’s Swede would prematurely secure his World Champion title in WRC2.

    APRC Malaysia: Second win for Veiby ahead of MRF ŠKODA teammate Gill

    The third round of the 2017 FIA Asia-Pacific Rally Championship (APRC), International Rally of Johor in Malaysia (11–13/08/2017), was more or less decided on the second special stage. Reigning APRC champion Gaurav Gill and co-driver Stéphane Prévot of Team MRF ŠKODA hit a tree stump and bent the steering of their ŠKODA FABIA R5, losing considerable time and the chance to win. Despite sliding off twice in unpredictable road conditions as well, teammates Ole Christian Veiby and Stig Rune Skjaermœn achieved the fastest stage time and took the lead from there up to the finish line. With their second win of the year the Norwegian shooting stars increased the lead in the championship standings. With only two APRC rounds to go, it looks like the next champion will be a ŠKODA driver again. Since 2012 every APRC champion was driving a ŠKODA FABIA. The Czech manufacturer is now on the route to defend the manufacturers title as well.
