    Back from another great Barum Rally! It was the 6th time I visited this event, and it keeps amazing me. Seen great competition from R5 and R2 class, some amazing action. Two drivers of the rally for me are Gryazin and Franchesci. Gryazin crashed, but I think it was impossible to not crash, when driving like this. Every time we saw him, we couldn't believe now fast he was going! I'm watching rallies for a good number of years now, and I can honestly say I've never seen someone attacking that hard! Seeing an R5 car totally sideways in corners at 150kph on tarmac, it's something different... For the other top R5 cars, Kopecky did what we expected. Lukyanuk a bit unlucky with his retirement. The C3 needs cleaner driving than the Fiesta, and he clearly adapted to it. However I hope to see him in another car next year... From Mares and Ingram both very strong performance, nice to see the fight lasting till the very end! Very strong competition in R2 with many drivers on the same level, it was almost as crazy to watch as the R5 cars. Franchesci was extremely strong, especially for it being his first Barum Rally. Certainly a driver we need to keep an eye on!

    A few photos.

    I would add to Tommeke that on his photos this is a 5th gear corner! It's this place (Ingram had 140 km/h in the corner): https://youtu.be/v3Jrmg0iAZE?t=282

    Gryazin:
    Whatever the outcome of the Barum Czech Rally Zlín for us (OK, we are upset!), we’ll never forget this event first of all by the remarkable special stage Semetín – one of the most challenging and exciting in the ERC.

    Unfortunate and very scary accident of Hýbner from the historic event. The crew is fortunately ok, only the car is gone.

    It would be a dream to see the WRC drivers and cars in this region, but I think it will only remain a dream. The Barum Rally is probably the best organized event in ERC (and better organized than many WRC events). But being in central Europe the crowds would be huge, and I don't know if the region could take it. There are few access roads so getting from and to the stages is difficult, not even talking about traffic jams that could make things difficult for the crews competing in the event. Also there are not that many hotels (the whole region is full already with ERC event).

    “All ERC3 drivers had red flag. Franceschi stopped on stage and then continued, and after rally organizers changed only his time giving 1 extra minute to national time. It dropped him to 4th positon but still before Torn, what resulted that Llarena jump to 1st place. In this way they destroyed Torn Championship and rally win to Franceschi. After rally the evidences that Llarena had puncture on last stage come out, but stewards did not change his time and penalized only Franceschi and Torn in result. There is lot of question marks:
    1. Why they looked only on Franceschi stage time and changed it
    2. Why they add him 1 minute? If they add more then Torn would have won the title
    3. Why they did not penalized Llarena for driving on puncture? There is gps evidence that Erik Cais was faster 12 sec on the spl,it than Llarena who had puncture and would have lost more for sure. Be aware that before the stage Cais had only 5.6 sec drop to Llarena and he will win the rally, what resulted again in Torn winning champion title.

    FIA ERC should be equal to all competitors what means that or they are giving the same time to everybody or panalized each single driver if had a problem on canceled stage.

    This is how Champion title is stolen due to not fair play game.”
