This year’s GTI-Treffen in Reifnitz, by Lake Wörthersee, attracted car tuning enthusiasts from all over Europe for the thirtieth time at the beginning of June, and Skoda once again was in the thick of the action, showcasing the Fabia RS 2000 design concept prepared especially for this anniversary meeting, the rally Fabia Super 2000, the sporty Fabia RS and the all-action Fabia Monte Carlo. Besides the latest innovations in its sports models, Skoda provided a packed programme of entertainment.

“These days, the GTI-Treffen is rightly hailed by fans of powerful engines and sporty customisation as the 'Mecca' of car tuning,” says Skoda boss Winfried Vahland prior to the event. “Anyone who comes to the event once never wants to miss another year of this fascinating get-together. The jubilee year of 2011 is a welcome opportunity for us to show off our sports models and make sure that everyone knows that Skoda really has something to offer here.”

The Fabia RS 2000 concept car has been developed and built specifically for the GTI-Treffen. Drawing on the successful Fabia Super 2000 rally car, Skoda’s designers have made an original roadster pursuing a single goal: dynamism and the joy of sporty driving. Based on the Skoda Motorsport’s broad rally car, the Fabia RS 2000 offers plenty of room for four occupants to climb in and sit in the car with ease. Besides the great view, the sharply sloping windscreen provides a constant supply of fresh air and a sense of being at one with nature.

Motor sports fans also saw the Fabia Super 2000, which was unbeatable last season as it dominated the IRC world championship series (Intercontinental Rally Challenge). At Wörthersee, Skoda presented the race-winning car driven by the Austrian Raimund Baumschlager as he won his tenth Austrian rally championship. Baumschlager will be made a personal appearance at the Skoda stand on 2nd June.
