All SKODA podium at European and Czech Championship round Barum Czech Rally Zlín
Agrotec ŠKODA Rally Team’s Jan Kopecký and co-driver Jan Hloušek (ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo) were leading after the first leg which was a real challenge for the crews. On the second special stage, he lost after a jump the control over his ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo, went off the road and had to retire.
At the end of the Saturday leg, ŠKODA stablemate Jan Kopecký was 2.1 seconds shy of leader Eric Cais (Ford). And Jan Kopecký delivered a faultless drive at the wheel of his ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo and secured a second place behind leader Eric Cais. But in the last stage, Cais rolled his Ford, had to retire – and Kopecký inherited his 10th victory in Zlín, thus preliminary securing the title in Czech Rally Championship. I feel sorry for Eric – he really deserved the win. It was a really difficult rally with changing conditions, some places were wet, others dry. Big thanks to my co-driver Honza and the whole team, he said.
