› Optimised chassis adapted to the specific requirements of rallying
› More stable handling thanks to wider body and longer wheelbase
› Test drives carried out across Europe under various weather conditions
Mladá Boleslav, 11 October 2022 – Compared to its predecessor, the FABIA RS Rally2 delivers significantly improved handling. The rally model benefits from enhanced weight distribution and balance thanks to its wider body and longer wheelbase from the production FABIA. The chassis and other components have also been strengthened to meet the specific requirements of rallying.
ŠKODA Motorsport subjected the FABIA RS Rally2 to an extremely demanding test programme under various weather conditions long before its presentation in June 2022. It took almost a year to prepare the vehicle for rally use in a range of weather conditions and on tarmac, gravel and snow. From summer 2021 onwards, this involved test drives in the Czech Republic, France, Italy, Croatia, Germany, Belgium and Spain as well as in extreme winter conditions in northern Finland.
