Laurin and Klement started their first international race in 1901 with an amazing result. Their motorcycles triumphed with their dynamics and reliability. In 1905, Václav Vondřich (aka the "travelling blacksmith") finished the famous Dourdan race 9 minutes ahead of the silver medalist. He drove the 693cc twin cylinder works special as pictured above.

The original Monte Carlo

The Monte Carlo models pay homage to more than a hundred years of Škoda motorsport history. The Czech brand took part in the "Monte" for the first time in 1936. The Škoda Popular drove straight onto the podium and took second and third place in its category. To celebrate this success, Škoda offered a special edition of their Monte Carlo coupé in the late 1930s.
