Diary hears Skoda has been doing quite well in rally competitions over the past few years, which means there is a gap for a new figure to poke fun at in the motoring world. How about Jeremy Clarkson? Surely the world's tallest dipstick.
Skoda has long been the butt of many a joke, but it may be time to think again because Skoda has its own UK rally team for this year's 2002 Kumho National Rally Championship. Exhibition signs and graphics company the Incredible Group thinks the jokes are a thing of the past by becoming the Skoda Fabia Rally Team's major sponsors for the year.
