It’s ERC for me, says Zlín chief Regner
Miroslav Regner says the ERC’s focus on privateers was key to his rally extending its long-term agreement with championship promoter Eurosport Events until at least 2018.
Barum Czech Rally Zlín’s association with Eurosport Events began in 2007 when the Intercontinental Rally Challenge added the hugely popular asphalt event to its schedule for the first time.
And when Eurosport Events took over the promotion of the ERC for 2013, Barum Czech Rally Zlín was a key factor in the championship’s success.
“With realistic insight, the European Rally Championship is the highest FIA rally series which can be organised in our region,” said Regner. “More than 10 years back we were thinking of entering the WRC but after the decade with IRC and renewed ERC I’m persuaded that choosing these series, which are mainly focused on private teams and drivers, was the right decision for all sides. Every year we try to keep high level of the event and also bring something extra and we are happy that drivers and rally fans year by year return to Zlín. I hope they will enjoy also the 47th Barum Czech Rally Zlín.”
Barum Czech Rally Zlín forms round six of the 2017 ERC season from 25-27 August.
