    So what was long time unofficial is now official. Škoda Motorsport leaves MČR. Kopecký will continue only as a test driver for them. However he plans to start in MČR with his own car and team with certain support from Škoda (Škoda will continue supporting several private teams like this year - this year it was Mareš and Jakeš I think). In fact Kopecký has kept preparing his MČR car himself already for several years despite being an official works driver. Therefore I think that the main difference is that he has to find new partners to pay the bills since Škoda won't pay all anymore.

    Does Kopecky have ambitions to do more than MCR? Seems a shame Skoda kept him there all these years, and now they pull out but he stays anyway..

    It's most likely about the budget they can gather and now with Covid it will be very difficult even with MČR I guess.

    Next season the Peugeot 208 Cup Czech will run with the 208 Rally 4 too and what I've discovered was that Global Motorsport(the team which organizes the cup)also distributes the PSA Motorsport cars & parts(Citroën C3 Rally2, Peugeot 208 Rally4 and soon the Opel Corsa Rally4)in Poland

    Big news. Since 2022 all cars without valid FIA homologation will not take points in MČR (they can start). That is the case of old cars as well - such as Pech's Focus WRC or Dohnal's Clio S1600.

    WRC cars were banned from 2006, but do you remember when they were allowed to score points again? 2015?

    If I remember right it was 2015, yes, but that was valid only for cars which had Czech registration before the end of 2014. Other cars were banned all the time and that is the biggest problem with our rules because nobody could buy anythingfrom abroad hence those cars already in use (that one Focus WRC mainly) were protected from competition.
