Hayes Garage, which had partnered Skoda in Clacton for more than 30 years, has closed following financial difficulties.

Car Finity, which had owned the dealership since 2006, ceased trading last week.

Its website now says the dealership will reopen in May as Ricky Hayes Garage.

Skoda is targeting sales of up to 78,000 units in the next five years as it secures an ever-stronger order book backed by a growing range.

Its sales hit a new high in 2010 backed by an expanding dealer netowork and they are set to reach a new record in 2011 too.

This growth is balanced between fleet and retail sales and Skoda expects there to be a 45/55 fleet retail split as demand grows in future.
