Even if the 52nd edition of the Barum Rally must now share the position of the highest quality national competition with the Central European Rally in October, which will be part of the World Championships, this does not take away from its attractiveness. Particularly because 114 crews from 22 countries applied to the organizers. They will fight for points in the European Championship, of which “Barumka” is the seventh part, as well as for laurels in the PSG rally championship in the Czech Republic.

A total of 34 cars feature the highest possible Rally2/R5 specification, with the vast majority of them being Skodas. A total of 74 cars are entered in the national championship, 70 drivers and their navigators will compete in the five classes of the European championship.

The competition will take place on the roads of the Zlín region. After today’s morning shakedown, drivers and spectators will once again be able to enjoy the evening super RZ in the center of Zlín. Among the thirteen measured tests listed, there are legends such as Troják, Semetín and Pindula. The total length of the high-speed sections is 200.43 kilometers, mainly on asphalt. The winner will be announced Sunday afternoon.
