Mladá Boleslav, 27 November 2018 – ŠKODA Motorsport is now operating out of a brand

Research and development, production, workshop, storage, workshop for prototypes, logistics,

offices and a show room for customers are concentrated in the brand new facilities close to the

ŠKODA AUTO factory near Mladá Boleslav. The persons working for ŠKODA Motorsport share

1,859 square metres of office space and 3,844 square metres of workshop and storage facilities. In

headquarter, we are prepared for the future challenges. Due to an improved workflow, we can

develop and built up cars even more efficient and make our service for our customers even better.

Last year, our target was to provide more than 200 FABIA R5 to customers worldwide. And we

delivered! Up to now, almost 250 FABIA were sold. In order to keep that momentum, these new

premises are an ideal foundation for the future success of our motorsport program.”

demonstrates ŠKODA’s commitment to motorsport. It will help us a lot to improve our customer

service and to continue the success story of ŠKODA Motorsport worldwide!”
