Goodwood Festival of Speed FOS 2011, Forest rally stage start with the Skoda 2011 spec Fabia S2000. To celebrate past and present rally successes across the globe, Škoda is working closely with the Goodwood Estate to develop the spectacular chalk loose-surfaced rally stage, which is an increasing popular element of the Festival. In 2011 the rally stage will be officially entitled the 'Goodwood Forest Rally Stage presented by Škoda' -- with better spectator facilities planned for the rally paddock and special stage viewing, easier access to the top of the hill, improved opportunities to see the cars and drivers and prizes for seriously spectacular rally driving. Škoda UK Motorsport driver Andreas Mikkelsen will be at the Festival during all three days of action, driving the team's 2011 spec Fabia S2000 on the hill and on the rally stage. Škoda also plans to have some historically significant rally cars from across the decades in attendance too. In addition, rally officials will benefit from Škoda's four-wheel drive vehicles, Yeti and Superb Estate, which will be used to keep the rally stage running like clockwork. Škoda is also planning to run a number of rarely seen racing cars up the hill during the Festival -- including its 1959 Škoda 1100 OHC Spider, which has only been seen as a static display in recent years.
