Two Skoda rally cars will duel at the Goodwood Festival of Speed

Skoda has enlisted the help of Freddy Loix and Sepp Wiegland to drive its Fabia S2000 on the rally stage and hillclimb at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Eight-time Ypres Rally winner Loix will team up with Goodwood rookie Wiegland to drive the S2000 on both the forest rally stage and the famous hillclimb route.

This is the third time that Skoda has sponsored the rally stage, and this year the course has grown from 1.7 to two miles for better spectator access. The course aims to put rally drivers to the test with a mixture of chalk, gravel and mud surfaces. Loix says he is looking forward to "putting on a show" for Goodwood fans this year.
