A sporting spirit was already evident in Václav Laurin and Václav Klement, the enthusiastic cyclists who founded their rapidly expanding company in Mladá Boleslav. A visionary of personal mobility and a gifted businessman, in the early years Václav Klement also successfully represented the L&K brand as a racer – on two and four wheels. He achieved success not only on home soil, but also in racing events abroad with deep fields of international competitors. Countless laurels and trophies testifying to the quality of the Czech machines opened the door for the L&K/ŠKODA brand on every continent.
Twelve decades of success in races at home and abroad.
The new exhibition called „120 Years of ŠKODA Motorsport“ immerses you in the atmosphere of races and competitions in times gone by. Original film footage of ŠKODA cars on the race track, attractive period posters and examples of panels displaying starting numbers transport the visitor like a time machine. The Wall of Fame showcases at least a modest selection of the countless precious trophies that the Mladá Boleslav brand has notched up at both domestic and international events over the past 120 years.
At least a small selection of the valuable trophies the Czech carmaker has racked up in 120 years of motorsport.
