    Personally I haven't heard anyone saying even one sentence about that. It seems that nobody cares. Anyway we have stupid name of the country already now, we are used to it.

    Czech/Check/Cheque name must stay please, we have had 10 au pairs from your country now, so many people have thought they were the funniest people ever by making bouncing cheque/Czech jokes!

    Ps, is there any motorsport you'd recommend on the weekend of 16/17th July? I hope to be in your lovely country on holiday then :-)

    Mirek is really right. Nobody cares here in CZ. And yes, the name of our republic is quite silly and long when you say "czech republic " but imho Czechia is some kind of bad joke. So thumbs down from me.

    I heard a lot of people saying so from all over the world

    Anyway we are quite a lot off topic and maybe we shall go back to Barum rally despite there isn't that much to speak about right now. What is sure is that the competitive field will be again split into two - national and international. While I expect most of the top drivers with FIA eligible cars to enter international field I'm quite sure that after last year's bullying of private competitors by FIA stewards (mainly the idiotic story with bar codes on tyres) many of them won't enter international field again.

    The question is will Invelt homologate the Porsche of Pech for FIA R-GT to take part in the international field? For sure I hope so.

    Why do they need to homologate Pech's car? Is it some model of Porsche that hasn't been homologated yet?

    R-GT cars have individual homologations. That's how the rules were created to allow private tuners to make their own cars.

    I can't imagine that R-GT cars are going to be good on Czech roads.

    On some roads and with dry weather yes but overall not, that's for sure. There are some roads which shall be theoretically GT friendly, for example the first circuit stage of Rally Šumava.
