ERC Junior Černý lands Czech podium
FIA ERC Junior Under 28 event winner Jan Černý was on podium form in his native Czech Republic yesterday.
He placed second overall on the CBS Carbosped Mikuláš Rally in a ŠKODA Fabia R5 co-driven by Petr Černohorský.
Of the five stages that made up the Slušovice-based event, Černý was fastest on one and second quickest three times. Martin Vlček took the outright victory in a Ford Fiesta R5. European Rally Championship regulars Grzegorz Grzyb and Antonín Tlusťák finished fifth and sixth respectively.
Černý contested the inaugural ERC Junior U28 Championship in 2017 with backing from the Czech motorsport federation. He took a category win on Rally di Roma Capitale in September.
