The rally vehicle will be designed to take part in the annual Dakar Rally. The Skoda Kamiq rally car will entirely be built by the students, from their initial ideas to the finished vehicle. However, the budding talents will receive support from engineers and experienced employees from Skoda's Technical Development, Design and Production departments at the carmaker's headquarters in Mladá Boleslav.
