The company will supply the Club with four-wheel-drive cars that will be used by race officials throughout the event. The list of Skoda models to be offered includes the namely Yeti, Octavia Scout, Superb Hatch and Superb Estate.

Rallye Sunseeker prides itself on forging appropriate partnerships so as we welcome Skoda as our Official Vehicle Partner we see the association of two strong and valued brand names – Sunseeker and Škoda; both renowned for innovation and design for purpose. Our senior officials look forward to show- casing a variety of 4x4 Skoda models on the special stages which make up Rallye Sunseeker 2011,” said Rick Smith, Rallye Sunseeker Event Director.
