Marijan Griebel was a special guest as FIA European Rally Championship competitors met fans at an annual gathering near the city of Zlín, where Czech Republic’s ERC counter will take place in the summer.

Griebel, ERC Junior champion from 2016, was present at the 10th edition of the popular fan event in Želechovice, which appears on the route of Barum Czech Rally Zlín’s Pindula special stage.

After taking part in a question and answer session, Griebel signed autographs and posed for selfies. Double ERC 2WD champion Jan Černý, plus ERC podium finisher Jaromír Tarabus and his co-driver Dániel Trunkat were also present.
