    Kopecký again very slow time on SS7. SS8 currently stopped due to an accident of one of the historical cars starting before the main field. Ambulance on the spot.

    EDIT: Kopecký's time will be corrected. Shall be a timing mistake.

    Never mind, strange things happen...

    A lot of punctures on SS11 but the times have changed now, hard to say who lost how much...

    There is some mess in times now (not only in times but also in the timetable).

    Most likely Černý is leading now after the puncture plague bus his time is wrong (also of Dohnal and Vlček who also escaped the puncture).

    So now the times make sense. There was some rain water pipe in a ditch which they dug out by cutting in the first run and nearly everybody made a puncture on it in the second run. Černý, Dohnal and Vlček were the only one from the top crews who avoided it. Černý is leading.

    From the times in the following stage I'd say some had damaged geometry or suspension from the puncture as well. Another reason could be wrong tyres in the spare for the actual conditions on the stage.

    So after first day we can expect a big battle tomorrow. Tomorrow there are two well known stages for everyone except Kalle (including the long one which will most likely decide) and one new stage for everyone. At the end there is a second run of the city stage.

    1. Černý
    2. Rovanperä +7,6
    3. Kopecký +12,7
    4. Mareš +22,0

    Video SS3-SS8. You can skip the interviews in Czech of course
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XL1Ku4p7fKg

    The most funny thing from the interviews is that some drivers were complaining they had slicks and needed wet tyres (Dohnal, Odložilík for example) while Kopecký was complaining that he had wet tyres and needed slick

    And a second funny thing. I don't know if you ever saw something like that. The second loop today was started 24 minutes ahead of the schedule...

    Now it's sunny and the roads are dry but the morning loop was still partially wet and full of crashes. Mareš, Dohnal, Pech and Trojan all went off. Only Pech was able to continue with broken suspension.
