To my knowledge you can’t buy Škoda cars in the USA. Not yet anyway.
However, with over 1,2 million cars delivered last year Globally they are a strong brand within the Volkswagen group.
Enough about cars and onto the subject we’re all interested in – trick shots!
Hint: The Škoda logotype has an arrow in it.
Is it possible to catch an arrow in flight. With your bare hands? From a moving car? At a speed of 133 miles per hour (215 kilometers per hour)?
The challenges are certainly adding up and my curiosity grows.
Is this Impossible? Of course no, but yes, I would say.
The arrow is only about 27 inches long (68 cm), and…very sharp.
Škoda took their fastest version of their model Octavia (it’s not like it’s a Ferrari) and challenged some brave athletes.
The challenge was accepted by archer Laurence Baldauff and Markus Haas, hardened by years of martial arts training, and the Škoda Octavia RS245, with 245 horses under the bonnet.
For the arrow shot by Olympian Laurence to end up in Markus’s closed fist, you need really precise cooperation, speed and the ability to take decisions and act
