    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
