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.
Jan Černý / Petr Černohorský in a private ŠKODA FABIA R5, just recovered from a huge accident in the recent round of FIA European Rally Championship (ECR) on Gran Canaria, finished fourth behind the Ford pairings Pech jun. / Uhel and Jakeš / Ehlová.
Jan Kopecký and Pavel Dresler now have a comfortable lead in the Czech Rally Championship (MČR) ahead of Vacláv Pech jun. / Petr Uhel and Jan Černý / Petr Černohorský.
Number of the day: 3
Kopecký / Dresler won Rally Český Krumlov for the third time in a row and all of three rallies of the Czech Rally Championship 2017 (MČR).
