Double hat-trick for Jan Kopecký and Pavel Dresler. The defending Czech champions won Rally Český Krumlov after 2015 and 2016 for the third consecutive time, also racking up the third win in a row in the Czech Rally Championship 2017 (MČR). ŠKODA privateers Jan Černý / Petr Černohorský finished fourth, trailing Ford pairings Vacláv Pech jun. / Petr Uhel and Miroslav Jakeš / Marcela Ehlová.

Rally Český Krumlov is one of the most traditional rallies in Czech Republic. In the region of Southern Bohemia, the drivers are competing on challenging special stages in a beautiful landscape. The only surprise came on sunny Friday, when it was not ŠKODA factory driver Jan Kopecký but Ford driver Dohnal who won the first short special stage. But after that, the world of Czech rallying returned to business as usual with a dominating Jan Kopecký.

Jan Kopecký and co-driver Pavel Dresler were fastest on all remaining 15 stages with their ŠKODA FABIA R5 and won Rally Český Krumlov for a third time in a row. After three victories on the first three rounds of Czech Rally Championship (MČR), the ŠKODA works pairing so far seems unstoppable on home ground.
