The opening round of the Czech EP TC Winter Championship took place last weekend in Trutnov, Czech Republic and was attended by 93 racers across 4 classes, Modified, Stock, 1/12th and 1/18th. The event also hosted the 2nd round of the Open Tour Trutnov series and this was won in both Stock and Modified by 14 times Czech champion Martin Korinek racing an Xray. In the Winter Championship Stock class it was Hot Bodies racer Jakub Plechac that topped the timesheets after qualifying and went on to win all 3 A-main legs to take the overall from Serpent racer Tomas Svoboda in 2nd and last years Winter Champion Vojtech Novicky racing for Xray in 3rd. In the Modified category there was a big fight between current Winter Champion Michal Bok racing for Xray and Summer Champion Zdenek Hamak with Hot Bodies, but in the third round of qualification it was Michal who was quickest and took TQ. In the finals, the first leg went to Zdenek, but in the second and third leg Michal was lucky and was able to take the overall with Zdenek finishing in 2nd, with the final step of the podium going to Jan Moravek. The championship continues in two weeks in Prague, capital of the Czech Republic and it will finish in Trebic in the middle of March.
