Derek Slack Motors release new rally concept, Fabia R 5 images

Rally enthusiasts who visited the Essen Motor Show were treated to the premiere of the concept version of the new rally ŠKODA Fabia R 5.

Tony Slack, Managing Director at Derek Slack Motors said: “The world premiere of the Fabia R 5 concept car gives an insight into the future of rallying at ŠKODA.” 

In keeping with FIA regulations, the new racing car is powered by a 1.6-litre turbo engine. The new car also features a sequential, five-speed manual gearbox and MacPherson struts. A number of top ŠKODA rally drivers were also involved in the development of the new Fabia R 5.

The Fabia Super 2000, the Fabia R 5’s predecessor, achieved a hat-trick of titles in the 2014 FIA Asia-Pacific Rally Championship (APRC). On top of this, ŠKODA also won the drivers’ title in the FIA European Rally Championship and a further five national championships. We’ll keep you posted on more news.

Stokesley budding young golfers

Budding young golfers recently competed in a junior golf competition at Stokesley Golf Range with Academy Coach- James Atthey. Over 40 children and parents took part in the event, which offers guidance and local support in developing junior golf in the community.

Coach James said, “We had a fantastic day, blessed with lovely spring sunshine.
It was great to see so many children attending the event with committed parents and guardians supporting junior golf. These structured events provide a friendly competitive environment for youngsters to develop skills at an early age whilst still having fun learning.”

With the support of the community, more initiatives are planned during the summer, hopefully with more of those yummy cupcakes too!
