Rally: Martin Prokop to contest 12 WRC rounds aboard private Fiesta RS

31-year-old Martin Prokop has put together a 12-rally programme ahead of the 2014 World Rally Championship.

The Czech is fielding his own Fiesta RS WRC and his team, Jipocar Czech, will be eligible to score points towards the manufacturers championship.

While Prokop plans to attend all events on the 2014 WRC calendar except Rally Australia, his teammate Jaroslav Melichárek is expected to contest only six rallies in the team's second Fiesta.
