Meet Martin Prokop

Prokop is part of the OneBet Jipocar Team and racer in the WRC.

 

We managed to grab a few minutes with him between races and this is what he told us…

 

Who is you idol in motorsport?

I’m too old to have an idol. Before I started my career, there were many people I considered idols like Carlos Sainz, Colin McRae and Tommi Makinen.

 

What was your first car?

Racing car – Skoda Felicia group N
Road car - Skoda Fabia 1.4

 

What is your favourite rally to compete in?

Definitely Rally Finland.

 

What do you like the most about competing in rallying?

I like that every race and every day is different. You can’t stop concentrating and so many things are happening every moment. This is nothing you can plan, you just have to adjust and this is what has been fascinating me for many years.

 

Favourite hobby - apart from racing?

Sports in general.

 

Favourite snack to have at a rally?

Coke and Snickers.

 

Do you have nicknames for any of your cars?

All of them - currently I have Fiona which is the Ford Fiesta WRC and Shrek the Ford Raptor F-150.

 

 

Catch Martin Prokop and Shrek at Rallye du Maroc, on the 4-10 October 2017.
