Father of Tomas Enge, Bretislav Enge was one of Czechoslovakia's top racing drivers of the 1970s and 1980s, Tomas did not see much of his father's racing because at the time only a few people could leave the country and Bretislav did most of his racing in the European Touring Car Championship, initially with Skoda but later with western teams, notably Hartge.
When the Iron Curtain disappeared and Czechs could travel, it meant that Bretislav could race at home and he started competing with Ford Escorts.
1981, Skoda won the overall manufacturers' title with a team of three 130RS 1.3-litre works cars driven by a group of Czech drivers, which included Bretislav Enge and Zdenek Vojtech.
