For petrolheads, the Ice Race in Austria’s Zell am See is the winter equivalent of the Goodwood Revival. The modern event is the successor to the famous races that took place from 1937 to 1974. The driving starts early in the morning and continues late into the night, both under blue skies and in glowing spotlights when the darkness falls. Racecars of all types, classes and ages appear, including some really unique classics.

Last year, ŠKODA triumphed here when the FABIA R5, driven by 2018 WRC2 champion Jan Kopecký, posted the fastest time in its class. This year, ŠKODA Motorsport prepared a unique show for the spectators: the Ice Race of Champions. Four excellent drivers competed behind the wheels of two ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo rally cars: the reigning junior ERC champion Filip Mareš, multiple German champion Fabian Kreim, Slovakian champion Martin Koči, and one local driver, the Austrian vice-champion Julian Wagner.
