  1. Hi I have just bought Skoda Favorit Rally Car: A13FAV I believe it used to be: L910ORP And possibly: MBH - 82 - 07 I think it was owned by Steve Westbury then Carl Stevens.has anyone any photos or history about the car? Also does anyone know where the VIN is stamped in to the chassis? Kindest regards Simon
  2. Hi! First of all I'm not from UK, or other English speaking country so sorry 4 my English... I got a old but still fine working Skoda Felicia 1.3MPi from '97. I change the suspension (bit lower much "harder") add stabilizator from felicia diesel, change brake disc, put on 15' rims, now try to put body kit on it... So the car is more "toy" made for fun than a "car" Now it's looking nasty, dirty... nothing to show without finish body and paint job. My next stage is to play with original 1.3 engine with amazing 68 horse power... so straight to the point: I follow some topics on this site (felicia 1.8T, 1.4 16V etc.) also find a lot of photos in google witch are from this site to... Can someone give me a hint about this: Image it's from: but topic is from 10 years... My question is how to make a standard 1.3mpi engine powered by 2 fuel injector for each engine cylinder? How to get sufficient air for it? As show on pictures original throttle(if this is a right word) was removed so how it is changing air flow to engine when u step on gas? Is it possible to do such a mod using standard felicia computer (chiptuning?) or is need a other control device? How to make it work on low RPM (idle) cuz in original stepper motor is part of "throttle device"? I know my questions are stupid, probably ask wrong way, use wrong words etc. I found a lot of info about "sport" camshaft (easy to buy in Czech Republic) and other engine mods but this fuel injectors system is a mystery to me... Any advice, article, post will be a big help to understand how it works in org Skoda Felici KitCar work in progress photo of my felicia
  3. Milestone for ŠKODA: the highest authority in motorsport, the International Automobile Federation FIA, has given the new ŠKODA Fabia R 5 the green light. Following its successful homologation, the new rally car can now continue the Czech automobile manufacturer’s 114-year motorsport success story on the rally routes of this world. The Fabia R 5 is based on ŠKODA’s new production Fabia and is the successor to the Fabia Super 2000, which went down in history as the most successful rally car in the history of ŠKODA Motorsport. from:Mladá Boleslav, 8 April 2015 International Automobile Federation FIA homologates ŠKODA’s new rally car Welsch: “Now we can prove just how good our new rally car is” Successful Fabia production model forms basis for new rally car “We are delighted that the International Automobile Federation FIA has given us the green light. Now we can prove just how good our new rally car is in the race series,” said ŠKODA Board Member for Development Dr. Frank Welsch. “When working on the third-generation production Fabia, which enjoyed an extremely successful start, we incorporated some of the genes from our rally cars and developed the most emotive Fabia ever. Conversely, the production model now formed the basis for the new Fabia R 5.” ŠKODA’s new rally car is pure high-tech. In compliance with FIA regulations, the ŠKODA Fabia R 5 is equipped with a 1.6-litre turbo engine. That is a considerable change from the two-litre induction engine in the Fabia Super 2000. Furthermore, the new four-wheel drive car also features a five-speed sequential gearbox and McPherson struts. The weight of the car is at least 1,230 kilograms, as stipulated in the regulations. Since the start of the project, ŠKODA Motorsport has invested 15 months of intense development work to fine-tune the car and ensure that the ultra-modern components interact perfectly. The homologation process is a long and complex procedure, which requires close cooperation with the International Automobile Federation FIA and is made up of several parts. In recent months, the new ŠKODA Fabia R 5 has been subjected to a comprehensive approval process, which has now ended successfully with the approval from the FIA. “We are happy that we now have the homologation from the International Automobile Federation FIA under our belt,” said ŠKODA Motorsport Director Michal Hrabánek. “The development of our new rally hope was a tiring process and a major challenge for the entire team at ŠKODA Motorsport, to whom I would like to say a big thank you.” Top drivers such as Asia-Pacific champion Jan Kopecký (CZ), European champion Esapekka Lappi (FIN), rally legend “Fast” Freddy Loix ( and multiple Austrian champion Raimund Baumschlager (AT) provided valuable input during the development of the new rally car. In the run up to the homologation, about 10,000 kilometres of testing were completed on a wide range of roads and conditions, including in the Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, Italy, France, Greece, Spain and Finland. Whether in icy cold or bright sunshine, on asphalt, gravel or snow – the ŠKODA Fabia R 5 successfully passed every test. There is already great interest in the new ŠKODA Fabia R 5 from customer teams. After all, the successor – the ŠKODA Fabia Super 2000 – was a guarantee of titles. In the 2014 rally season, ŠKODA completed a hat-trick of titles in the Drivers’ and Manufacturer championships in the FIA Asia-Pacific Rally Championship (APRC), while the champion in the FIA European Rally Championship (ERC) was a ŠKODA works driver for the third time in a row. The list of success achieved last year also includes five national titles. With a total of almost 50 international and national titles in six years, the ŠKODA Fabia Super 2000, which made its first appearance in 2009, is the most successful project in the company’s 114-year motorsport history. ŠKODA Motorsport Director Michal Hrabánek: “With the new ŠKODA Fabia R 5, we want to follow on from the success we have enjoyed in recent years with speed and reliability on the rally routes of this world. Following the successful homologation, we can now initiate the next phase of the Fabia R 5 project.”
  4. The ŠKODA champions want to round off an outstanding season in the FIA Asia-Pacific Rally Championship (APRC) at the highlight of the season in China. With the flawless result of five victories in five rallies so far, the duos Jan Kopecký/Pavel Dresler (CZ) and Gaurav Gill/Glenn Macneall (IND/NZ) head to the Czech car manufacturer’s most important market in the world for the season finale. The works-supported ŠKODA MRF Team has already secured the title in the manufacturers’ standings of the APRC* ahead of the “China Rally Longyou” for the third time in a row. › “China Rally Longyou” from Friday to Sunday final APRC stop › ŠKODA title win in the manufacturers’ and drivers’ standings* already certain › Five victories in five rallies of the APRC season so far › ŠKODA production vehicles are best sellers in China › Titles in the ERC and four national championships for the Fabia Super 2000 Src: Mladá Boleslav, 5 November 2014 – Also, Jan Kopecký has secured the title before the end of the season, making him the first driver in history to win the driver’s title in the European Rally Championship (ERC) and the APRC* in consecutive years “Naturally we are very proud to have won these titles for ŠKODA in our debut season in the APRC. But there’s no reason to celebrate just yet: After all we want to finish off the season perfectly at the highlight of the season and put on a good show for our fans in China,” said Kopecký. The 32-year-old ŠKODA works driver has won three rallies this season, in New Caledonia, Australia and most recently in Japan. The dethroned defending champion Gill was victorious in the other two APRC rallies in New Zealand and Malaysia. Gill’s aim for China is to at least draw level with Kopecký on number of victories: “After coming second in China last year, I want to finish the season with a win. After all it’s an important race for the whole brand.” Just how popular ŠKODA is in China was evident the first time that the Czech brand ever participated in a vintage car rally in Beijing and Shanghai in September. At the “Top City Classic Rally China” a convertible ŠKODA Felicia from 1961 and a Laurin & Klement 300 from 1923 – the oldest vehicle to take part – delighted tens of thousands of spectators. At the “China Rally Longyou”, the state of the art rally racer Fabia Super 2000 is set to enthral the fans over 230.92 kilometres and 13 special stages. ŠKODA wants to increase its worldwide sales in the coming years to at least 1.5 million units per year, focusing on the Asian growth markets in particular. In China alone the number of vehicles sold is planned to rise to more than 500,000 in the future. Last week ŠKODA’s HR Director Bohdan Wojnar was part of a Czech government delegation accompanying President Miloš Zeman on his state visit to China. In addition to the title hat-trick in the manufacturers’ and drivers’ standings in the APRC, ŠKODA has also secured the FIA European Rally Championship (ERC) title going into the final race of the season. The path to the ERC title is clear for ŠKODA works driver Esapekka Lappi (FIN) at the season finale on Corsica from Thursday to Saturday. The high-tech four-wheel drive from Mladá Boleslav has also won the championship title in four national rally championships. Belgium’s rally old hand “Fast” Freddy Loix, who won the FIA European Rally Championship race in his home country in the Fabia Super 2000 in June, won the Belgian championship title. Before that, Pedro Meireles (P), supported by ŠKODA Portugal, won the championship in Portugal. Old hand Raimund Baumschlager (A) also won his twelfth rally championship title overall in Austria in the Fabia Super 2000. On top of that, Poles Grzegorz Grzyb/Robert Hundla won the championship in Slovakia. * Subject to the official publication of the results by the FIA.

  6. What a premiere! The opening event of the new year of the World Championship, the new WRC-2 class, and a victory for ŠKODA! Sepp Wiegand/Frank Christian of Germany score a valuable win in their first appearance at the legendary Monte Carlo Rally. Commenting on ŠKODA´s appearance at the Monte Carlo Rally, Head of ŠKODA´s motorsport department Michal Hrabánek says: Sepp Wiegand was thrilled to bits: “An incredibly difficult rally and an incredible success! I never even dared to dream about such an excellent result before my first appearance at the Monte.” Esapekka Lappi made a good start to the event by winning Stage 1, but then he had to give up in Stage 2 after a driving mistake and its consequences – a damaged front-left suspension: The Monte Carlo Rally is the world´s oldest car race and one of the most difficult events. As usual, the on-track conditions were difficult, mainly due to a combination of snow and ice. Rides through mountain passes including the “Night of the Long Knives”, the famous ride through the Col de Turini at 1,606 a.s.l., 468 special-stage kilometres, 1,352 liaison kilometres and 18 special stages spread over four days – that is the legend by the name of ´Monte´.

  7. ŠKODA´s new factory crew, Esapekka Lappi & Janne Ferm, to make their first appearance at the legendary rally The “Monte” opens the WRC-2 season The ŠKODA Fabia Super 2000 made its debut at the 2009 Monte Carlo Rally ?Scheduled for 15-20 January, 2013, the legendary Monte Carlo Rally will see ŠKODA Motorsport´s Esapekka Lappi & Janne Ferm make their debut as a new factory crew. The WRC-2 season in which ŠKODA will appear at selected events is starting. ?Lappi & Ferm will make their first-ever appearance at this legendary event, one of the best-known and also one of the most difficult rallies. Yet Esapekka Lappi is looking forward to it a great deal: “We can´t wait to make our first appearance at the “Monte”. It is a tough and difficult rally, but also a great experience for any driver. It is great that we can start the new WRC-2 and our mission in the ŠKODA Motorsport team at this event. It will be a big challenge for us, because everybody wants to succeed at the “Monte”. Regarded as great new talent of contemporary motorsport, Esapekka Lappi & Janne Ferm won the Finnish Championship in 2012 after winning all of its seven events. ŠKODA´s cooperation with the Finnish champions started last year in October at the Poland Rally that Lappi & Ferm (in a ŠKODA Fabia Super 2000) won comfortably. Monte Carlo is a very special place in terms of ŠKODA´s sporting efforts – the 2009 Monte Carlo Rally saw ŠKODA Motorsport make its rallying debut and start the successful era of the ŠKODA Fabia Super 2000 project. Over the past four years since then, ŠKODA has won three IRC championship titles in both the Manufacturers and Drivers categories (2010-2012), the Drivers category of the European Championship (2012), both the Manufacturers and Drivers categories of the Asia-Pacific Rally Championship (2012) and a total of 18 national championships (2009-2012). Launched in 1911, the Monte Carlo Rally is the world´s oldest car race, and the typically rapidly changing weather conditions (including snow and ice) as well as the profile of its routes make it one of the most difficult events. Scheduled for four days, this year´s “Monte” comprises 18 stages (468 special stage kilometres and 1,352 liaison kilometres).
