    Rally Šumava is canceled (which is not surprising in the current situation). Pech is therefore 2020 champion.

    Congratulations to Pech, but... can we compare this situaltion to Neubauer winning Austrian championship against Baumschlager a few years ago? I mean a driver, who normally cannot win, buys/rents a WRC car to win a championship by having the most powerful car rather than skills and talent?

    I think yes... Last year, on similar car, Pech was on level of Cerny or Mares.

    Yes, but that's not Pech's fault but of our ASN and the rulles. Using the rulles to the maximum is the essence of motorsport and always has been.

    I am not saying you are not correct. I only answered to question from Jarek Z...

    We have already gone through this story many times...Mirek is 100% right.
    With one big fact, which speaks in favour to Pech: he has beaten probably the fastest driver in Škoda Fabia R5 in EU, the driver who has best possible factory support in EU...and Pech has WRC car, indeed, but factory date more than 10 years old, and driving for a private team.
    So Vaclav & Petr, huge congratulations to win one of the most (if not the most) challenging championship in EU.

    You should not forget about others. The championship is not only about Kopecký. Last year Mareš had twice more points than Pech when both had R5 cars. This year he was out of the game from the beginning just because of stupid rules. While I don't blame Pech it certainly wasn't a fair championship for others.

    Pluto, can you please make it clear how it is with awarding the overall title? It looks like I was too fast with writing and Pech won't be crowned champion because of too few events done in the season.

    I cannot make it clear as it is not clear. It was also discussed on Autosport forum, but as you are not going there now, you are not aware. Problem is in bulletin 3 (https://www.autoklub.cz/wp-content/u...3_20_final.pdf), where is written that champion will be in case that 4 events will be "vypsány". I wrote it specially in czech as this word is the biggest problem. Or better, interpretation of this word is biggest problem. If we will translate it to english, it is something like "announced". But it is not clear if it is enough if the event is written in calendar or also must be done...
