SKODA Motorsport continues to promote young drivers – Dominik Stříteský to debut in FIA World Rally Championship
“Dominik Stříteský is one of the Czech rally talents. We decided to support the next step in his career. He has established himself very quickly as one of the front runners in the domestic championship. However, it is absolutely essential for him to also gain experience with rallies in foreign countries. ŠKODA Motorsport is known for promoting young talents on their way to the top. We are convinced, that Dominik in the future will use the experience, he will now gain, in the same way many of his predecessors have done in the past. He has been given a clear target – he has to learn and collect new knowledge,” explains Michal Hrabánek, Head of ŠKODA Motorsport.
He achieved his best result at Rally Bohemia, where the dealer team ACA ŠKODA Vančík Motorsport driver finished second overall. Stříteský is currently fourth in the points standings of the Czech Rally Championship. In July, he competed for the first time outside the Czech Republic, at the FIA European Rally Championship round
I appreciate the chance to compete on World Championship level. Together with my co-driver, I want to gain as much experience as possible in Spain and cover as many kilometres as possible in competition. I’m also looking forward to working with Team Toksport WRT, which is supported by ŠKODA Motorsport. They run a couple of internationally renowned drivers, who will be a benchmark for me, Dominik Stříteský comments on his upcoming WRC debut.
