Best of luck for the 2018 season
The last rides took place just after the ŠKODA Motorsport team announced their plans for the 2018 season at an official press conference. As usual, the goals are only the highest. A total of five crews will strive to defend their positions a the WRC2 driver and constructor champions, their title in the Czech Republic Championship, and their overall victory in the Asian-Pacific championship.
The skid marks from the soft racing tires will remain for a while to remind us that there was a reason to celebrate on this cold December afternoon, but also that there’s still work to be done.
