The earliest days of the Company began when founders Laurin and Klement started racing cars and motorcycles as far back as 1900. Skoda drivers enjoyed many national and international victories right up to the company's take-over by the flourishing engineering giant Skoda in 1925. This long and distinguished motor racing heritage has laid the foundations for the future success and growth of the business.
Post Second World War and the Skoda Car Company was producing open topped sports cars with DOHC 1100cc engines which gave an output of 92BHP. Also in 1964 Skoda developed an F3 car based on the Skoda 1000MB Chassis and using a 1 litre Skoda engine developing 90BHP.
Towards the latter part of the last century Skoda focused heavily on achieving success in rallying. The Octavia model in particular became a sporting star in the early Sixties. In the nineties the the Favorit was replaced by the Felicia Kit Car which featured 3 different engines over the years including the 1.3 litre Skoda unit, this time with about 140BHP, an enlarged version of this engine (to 1.5 litres), with 155BHP and finally a 1.6 litre engine which developed as much as 185BHP.
The racing heritage of Skoda both on the track and in the forests has forged an enviable reputation for the development of strong, reliable and exceptionally handling cars. The latest program encompassing the Skoda Octavia WRC proves Skoda's commitment to continuing the successes of the recent and distant past.
Although the manufacturer does not provide its own car insurance it does deliver some useful types of cover and policies for Skoda owners.
If your Skoda was stolen or written off as the result of an accident then your insurance company will generally offer you a total loss payment based on the market value of your vehicle at that time. This value could be significantly less than either the cash price of the vehicle or the outstanding balance of an existing finance agreement. It is possible to take out GAP Insurance to help make up this shortfall and protect your investment.
