Odlozilik bales out of ERC after chicane collision

Roman Odložilík’s 20th start in the FIA European Rally Championship has left the SK DER Rally Team driver clutching at straws, as a collision with a hay bale forced him to retire from Barum Czech Rally Zlín.

Odložilík – whose best ERC result came courtesy of a podium finish on this event back in 2010 – was running P13, 22.1s behind ERC1 Junior star in an R5 car Tomáš Pospíšilík (BTH Import Stal Rally Team).

But a nose-first trip into a hay bale by the 2013 Czech Sprintrally champion broke his radiator and caused terminal overheating, ending his hopes of another ERC top 10 on his home event.
