Miroslav Jakes


Date of birth : 07/10/1989

Jakeš caused a stir by winning the ERC Production Car Cup in sixth overall on Barum Czech Rally Zlín in 2013, a performance that earned him the coveted Colin McRae ERC Flat Out Trophy. He scored several podiums in the 2014 Czech championship, which he contested in a new-generation Citroën DS3 R5, but also suffered a spate of retirements, a trend that continued in 2015. He switched from Citroën to ŠKODA Fabia S2000 power midway through 2016 and was Ford Fiesta R5-mounted in 2017, when he took two podiums in the Czech championship. He’s spent the bulk of this season in an ageing Fabia S2000 but gets an R5 version of the Czech machine for his home round of the ERC. He won several stages on Barum Czech Rally Zlín and missed out on the podium by just 0.3s after a late charge.
