The September 1 is nearly close and the fans of the motor sport will surely spend it in Trebišov on the premiere of the DeutschMann® Rally Trebišov! The number of entered crews is lower, but with a detailed look at the list, it is clear that the exciting moments during the competition will certainly not be missing.
In the Slovak Rally Championship still is a fight for absolute leadership and it looks like we will learn the names of the Slovak champions only at the last rally in Košice. The biggest champions for the title, however, will not miss even the premiere DeutschMann® Rallye Trebišov, which will bring important points to the year-round evaluation. Visitors and spectators can also enjoy interesting tracks and a great accompanying program!
The final list includes 36 crews, 28 of which will compete in the main championship, six in the Slovak rally cup, and two would like to pass the rally school, for which they need to pass the rally cup track. Starting number 1 will be the official Slovak champions - Pavel Valoušek and Veronika Havelková. But we will not see them on the usual Ford Fiesta R5, but this time they should show up on the Ford Focus WRC. Whether or not the WRC vehicle will be an advantage over R5s, it will certainly show the times of Martin Koci and Filip Schovánek who will carry the number 2. 3 at the doors of their Škoda Fabia R5, on the DeutschMann® Rally Trebišov will have Grzegorz Grzyb and Jakub Wrobel.
Behind the Fabia will come three more Fords, all the Fiesta R5. In them, we will see Roman Odložilík with Martin Tureček, Vlasto Majerčak with Michaela Vejačková and Tomáš Kukučka with Petr Vejaček. Igor Drotár and Tomáš Plachý were awarded a lucky seven on Škoda Fabia R5, behind who will start two fast Mitsubishi class 3 in the performance of Petr Gavlak and Jozef Semerád. The 7th and the last R5 will close ten of the highest starting numbers Vladimir Hanuš.
In class 6 we have only three drivers this year, namely Martin Kysucký, Martin Koiš and the Czech driver Zdenek Marecek. In class 5 we will see Peter Haluška at Seat Ibiza and there will be also Juraj Keszi, Jan Laurinc or Michaela Debnárová.
The Slovak rally cup will again bring the 3 times "P" - Polovka, Plichta and Pecúch. But Milan Straka and Rudolf Domby could talk about it. The newcomers will be Mário Gallovič and Noel Beluško.
The complete Entry list is posted on the official website trebisov.rallye.sk. Do not forget that the start of the first Saturday speed test will be preceded by a fantastic Friday concert of IMT Smile! Do not miss this combination of great music and adrenaline that you can find only in Trebišov 1.-2. September 2017.
