From 2 to 4 wheels for Dakar star in TER Round 4 - Škoda Rallye Liezen

11.09.2017

In the fourth round of the 2017 TER – Tour European Rally, Škoda Rallye Liezen on September 29-30, all the drivers will be after... a novice!


2015 FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Champion and second place finisher at the 2017 Rally Dakar, Austrian motocross and cross-country rider Matthias Walkner will switch from two to four wheels, trading his KTM 450 for a Škoda Fabia R5 with which he will be the “zero” car in the next round of the new concept of rally series.



Matthias Walkner recently tested the car with Raimund Baumschlager, the 11-time Austrian Rally Champion, who finished third overall and first in the R5 class in last year's edition of the Liezen-based event.
