European Rally Champion

We normally go to Croatia for bronzed skin. Now we've got gold.

Congratulations to Jan Kopecký and Pavel Dresler for winning the 2013 European Rallye Champion title in Croatia. Our joy is even greater as it's the first time in its history that a Czech crew has won the ERC.

Jan Kopecký: “Winning the title is a dream come true for me. I would like to thank ŠKODA Motorsport and our fantastic team for the amazing work they have done this season.”

Pavel Dresler: “It is the icing on the cake at the end of a fantastic season in the ŠKODA and the highlight of my career.”

Team Boss Michal Hrabánek: “With the ERC title for Jan Kopecký and Pavel Dresler, we have claimed another major success for the ŠKODA Fabia Super 2000 project. Our entire team has worked hard all year to achieve this goal. This is a wonderful reward for everyone involved. We have once again proven the quality of the Fabia Super 2000 and the technical expertise of ŠKODA.”
