Skoda Octavia (1) General Information

It is the biggest WRCar of the lot. The adventure has started after many respactable successes in small class cars and the Octavia Kit Car, the biggest F2 car ever. The Octavia WRC holds other records between the Cars as well: it is the only WRCar with a 20-valve engine and it is the WRCar with the longest stroke engine, which should help torque. A downside of the Octavia may have been that despite its long shell it had a very short wheelbase, when the opposite is desirable (short car for being nimble and light, long wheelbase for stability).

The Octavia WRC was replaced mid 2003 by the little Fabia WRC. The Octavia's brightest season was easily 2001, when against strongest opposition Armin Schwarz came within split seconds of a podium in Monte Carlo, after an event long fight with Monte expert Francois Delecour. And Armin eventually managed the podium in the Safari, which underlined its reputation of being a tough, reliable car. Unfortunately following seasons proved luck was not always on Skoda's side. In Sweden 2002 Kenneth Eriksson retired from 4th place virtually 100yards from the finish line. And this was not the only case of Skoda Octavias beating Subaru Imprezas on the stages but being denied the result to prove it!

Meanwhile fans complained that Skoda never had the best driver line up. This may be debatable, but the signing of Luis Climent can be questionned, while the return of Armin Schwarz and the arrival of Didier Auriol clearly happened after these stars have seen their best days.
