Among the 79 entries seven more ŠKODA FABIA R5 and various FABIA and other ŠKODA rally cars are listed in different classes and categories. Besides Jan Kopecký and Václav Pech also Jan Černý, driving a privately entered ŠKODA FABIA R5, can be expected to be among the frontrunners. Local hero Roman Kresta, a former World Rally Championship driver for ŠKODA, makes a welcome return to the Czech Rally Championship with another ŠKODA FABIA R5.
Fans should visit Rally Bohemia not only because of the stunning action on the stages. In the service park ŠKODA is hosting extensive spectator activities, the highlight being a competition with a spectacular grand prize – the winner gets a ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS 4x4 for the period of one year.
