Skoda has begun testing on a prototype Fabia rally car.  Designed to be used in the Super 2000 category, the vehicle is based on the second-generation Fabia and, in compliance with the FIA regulations, is equipped with a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine, a six-speed sequential transmission and a four-wheel drive system.

Dr. Eckhard Scholz, Head of Skoda’s Technological Development, said: “We are glad to have started testing the Fabia Super 2000. This year we are planning to optimise and certify the vehicle so that we can use it on both national and international levels.  Then we are also planning to offer the vehicle to private teams. Based on a customer service arrangement, further development work on the vehicle will be done in close cooperation with our importers worldwide.”

Head of Corporate Communications, Martin Lauer, added: “Our history of over hundred years of involvement in motorsport is unique, and we are proud to be able to continue the success story with the Fabia Super 2000.”
