    But at the end of the day it was the 14-year-old Ford Focus WRC that was faster than the brand new Skoda Fabia R5. Vaclav Pech wins the rally!

    The Focus still is a faster car if properly driven, set and maintained (this one certainly is being run by very capable team). That's a simple fact.

    Per Czech rules only WRC cars allowed in the championship are those which had Czech registration already in 2014. It means that Pech's only chance to defeat Kopecký was to get the only eligible faster car - Dohnal's Focus.

    Fun fact - Pech won Bohemia only for the second time in his long and successful career. In the more distant past the event used to be dominated by Kresta and in last years by Kopecký (last year by Rovanperä).

    You may have watched the coverage from Rally Video Novinky but some particularly nice shots are here:
    Huttunen in a potato field: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tl3j...=youtu.be&t=77
    Pech total flat out: https://youtu.be/5jLAhW43YBo?t=74
    Same place from outside: https://youtu.be/5jLAhW43YBo?t=421
    Semerád's crashed car: https://youtu.be/IgPIlm4rDZ0?t=162
    Pech's big moment: https://youtu.be/IgPIlm4rDZ0?t=253

    Great video with another Huttunen's off (and many other offs and mistakes): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=elx7o_T6p68
    Two spectacular offs of Matěna and Šimek here: https://youtu.be/dL37yKKVDDo?t=122

    All in all I think that it was a great event. It looks like Huttunen may drive another events of the championship so the battle of the three may continue. Also great performance from Radström!

    Looking at this video, Vaclav Pech urgently need a fitness training (jogging and workout), because he looks totally exhausted after arrival into TC (at 02:40):

    To be able to outpace other Czech drivers on day one at least, Huttunen and the latest Hyundai R5 must be damn quick!

    Re: Pech, I would rather see him in a Polo or new Fiesta R5 so he is competing on a level playing field.

    Huttunen is still driving old i20 R5, not the latest spec...
