Czech National On-road Championships – Report

Czech National On-road Championships – Report

The Summer portion of the Czech National On-road Championships was recently held in Brno-Bosonohy. Over 50 drivers from all over the country attended in the five classes of Touring Modified, Touring Stock, Formula, GT Open and GT Stock. The event started off with practice on Friday followed by five qualifiers on Saturday and triple mains on Sunday. The rubber tyre 4WD classes used Hot Race hand out tyres with great results as even in the hot weather conditions the tyres held up fine, making for equal conditions for everyone. In the premier Touring Modified class it looked like Jiri Vysin would take an easy TQ with his closest competitor, Radek Flek struggling with overheating tyre. Fast Kuba Simurda ran in to electronic issues and another pre-event favourite, Petr Grof, was simply not fast enough. And out of nowhere Radek Voda scored low-point results to take a popular overall TQ from Jiri and Radek, promising some nice battles for the A-mains.

The opening main then went to Jiri Vysin who put a lot of pressure on Radek and with two second place finished in the remaining finals, Jiri would take the overall title on Sunday. Kuba Simurda, who had a DNS in the opening leg, took a lucky second place overall from Petr Grof who showed a very consistent pace in the finals.
