Jan Kopecký

Jan Kopecký brings another new element to the APRC in 2014 and is the current European Rally Champion.

After two wins and a second place in the Pacific events Kopecky and co-driver  Pavel Dresler currently lead the drivers and co-drivers championship as it heads to Asia.

Kopecký is a very experienced rally driver who entered his first WRC event back in 2002. Since then, the Czech driver has campaigned various cars in the WRC, and in his local championship, but has predominately driven Škoda’s throughout his years of competition. His experience with the strong rally brand, Škoda, will no doubt see him challenge for the lead.

His best result was 5th place, at the 2007 Rallye Deutschland. But after this, he was hired by Škoda Motorsport to test and help develop the Škoda Fabia S2000 he will be campaigning this year. Definitely a driver to watch!
