SKODA features own “Ice Race of Champions” at Austrian winter-sport resort in Zell am See-Kaprun
Julian Wagner, who led the 2019 Austrian Rally Championship for most of the season before bad luck during the final round relegated him to second, is the only driver of the “Ice Race of Champions”, who can build on some experience with studded tyres on the Zell am See ice track. Filip Mareš from Czech Republic made 2019 the most successful year of his career by winning the ERC1 Junior Category of the FIA European Rally Championship. I have to thank ŠKODA Motorsport for giving me the great opportunity to entertain the visitors of the popular GP Ice Race with the ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo before the new season really starts, he says.
Besides local hero Julian Wagner, ERC champion Mareš has to face two more tough competitors coming from national championships. They fight for the “Ice Race of Champions” victory on equal terms – each of them is driving a ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo, technically identical and prepared by the factory team.
