Martin Prokop and Jipocar Racing Team before the season 2014

Two months break in-between the 2013 and 2014 seasons will be over within few weeks and the merry-go-round of thirteen races all over the world will start again with its opener at Monte Carlo. For the third time as the member of the elite WRC group, Martin Prokop leading the Jipocar Czech National Team will be an important part of the game and from the packed programme he will miss only one event at Australia. He will rely again on the proven Ford Fiesta RS WRC and co-driver Michal Ernst.

Martin Prokop: “The World Championship gets a new impetus as the new manufacturer Hyundai jumps on the board, the same as Volkswagen did last year. Although the competition will be major again, we are confident enough to defend the results from this season and finish again at the top 10. That would be a fantastic result for us as privateers among the four factory teams. In the last three races of the season 2013 we made significant progress in the car set-up and driving style, so we were able to reduce the gap from the absolute top of the field. I believe that the 2014 season will begin in our hands at least with the same performance and we will once again make our fans happy. They will also appreciate the return of the Rally Poland to the calendar of the World Rally Championship.”

Manager Quirin Müller adds: "Besides the fact that Martin and Michal will score points into the FIA Drivers' and Co-drivers´ Championship standings, Jipocar Czech National Team is signed in as official team of the the FIA Manufacturers' Championship, the same as it was this year. The great news for our team is the fact that at least six races beginning with the Monte Carlo we will deploy also our second car, as it will be rented and run by another private driver. So it obviously will not be a boring time for us.”
