Skoda has found a wacky way of getting publicity on the Targa Tasmania rally in Australia - by competing with two bicycles attached to a roofrack.
Team Skoda Carsales ran with the bikes attached to its Octavia RS throughout the event, highlighting Skoda's beginnings as a bike manufacturer in 1894.
Driver Mike Sinclair said: "The bikes only weigh 8kg so you can't really feel that they're there. You can hear them though - they whistle so much It sounds like you've got an extra turbo."
Australian motor racing legend and eight-time Targa Tasmania winner, Jim Richards, who is competing in a Porsche GT3 RS, said he has never seen anything like this in his four decades of motorsport.
"I can honestly tell you I have never seen a car in competition with a pair of bicycles attached to the roof," Richards said. "I think it looks great, but they better watch out for low hanging branches."
