    Doubt we’ll see Kopecky in Finland, which is probably a good one for him to miss.

    Hope to see the other four works Skoda drivers all there.

    I expect Jan to do Germany and Catalunya. He has very good chances to win there. However all of the other events are not strong at all for him.

    Turkey is a bit of an unknown to all recently.

    I agree Finland and GB probably wouldn’t be good for him, and GB clashes with the last round of MCR.

    Australia could be anything depending on who drives there, and if Skoda go there.

    No problem with that. Škoda skips Příbram regularly. That's the only event where other drivers win (Dohnal in last two years).

    Still impressed with Ciamin; ok, his raw speed wasn’t astonishing and he was easily overtaken by Veiby, but if we think that he’s only on his 3rd ever rally season and it was his second outing in the gravel with a R5, to finish at P3 is quite an achievement.

    Probably not four cars for one rally? Hopefully Rovanperä and Nordgren though

    Some can start with private cars.

    (IKH would be pleased to have Kalle´s car with their stickers.)

    If you check WRC2 teams results from WRC.com there is Skoda Motorsport and Skoda Motorsport II, so even 4 factory cars is possible. My guess is only 2 factorycars but 4 drivers.

    Škoda works team don't have the capacity to run four cars at the same time. One or two cars would have to be run by some other team. Anyway I'm quite sure there won't be four in Finland.

    I would guess Veiby or Rovanperä with a private entry then. Tidemand probably securing a win elsewhere

    It can be a works team entry. No problem with that. Only the car must be physically run by someone else. This year Škoda already used Kresta Racing or Wevers Sport services while the cars were in works colors and prepared in works service area (in both cases it was for Nordgren and in both cases it was due to the simple fact that the works team staff was elsewhere).

    Just out of curiosity - even Kopecký's car in Czech championship is sort of semi-works because it's being prepared in Kopecký's own family facility (former CRT WRT). Despite that he drives under works banner, with full works show in the service park and for Škoda's money.
