Former Formula 1 driver and Le Mans winner Hans-Joachim Stuck drives SKODA Sport from 1950
The 600-kilogram ŠKODA Sport with its water-cooled 1.1-litre four-cylinder engine has lost none of its appeal: Hans-Joachim Stuck says: “Driving this car is unbelievably fun, it really is fantastic”.
Michal Velebný, head of the restoration workshop at ŠKODA, speaks about the vehicle from another exciting perspective: As the grandson of Josef Velebný, who was responsible for developing the ŠKODA Sport as the chief engineer at that time, he rebuilt the vehicle with the help of a friend.
On 24 June 1950, the car was well prepared for its mission in Le Mans: After 13 hours of racing Václav Bobek and Jaroslav Netušil had fought their way to second place in the <1,100cc class.
