HIT128 race in Czech Republic report


The second Saturday in December divided winter racing season in Holesov into two halves. The amount of registered drivers promised a great show on the local carpet track, surfaced by well-known black ETS carpet. Free practice kicked off traditionally at seven o´clock. High paced heats mercilessly coming one by each other provided racing experience right from those early hours. Driver meeting was up to come then. Photo of all participants together could not be missed as well as a few words from organizers. At the end, the drivers were all set to start racing for well-appreciated points to the ranking list.

1/10 GT:

Class of 2WD cars with no power limits showed us fight including TOP drivers from northern Moravia. Roman Krejčí, Libor Holub and Ladislav Holásek placed their cars into first three spots on the grid. Even though Roman was not as fast as usually and the narrow track kept his gas finger low, he managed to make a little bit of a gap to the second Libor, what was enough to enjoy victory. So that second place came to Libor Holub and third position from qualifications secured Ladislav Holásek.

1/12 Open:

In 1/12 class Jiří Rybák performed his best leading the field in all three final heats and faultless drive brought him the feel of victory at the end. Right behind Jiří Rybák there was a strong fight for the second position. Winner of the GT class, Roman Krejčí, was the luckiest one despite having the same amount of points with third Svetlin Douhlevski and fourth Radim Hruška.

1/10 Formula 1:

To finish list of 2WD classes, let´s switch to Formula 1. Original bodies used in this very competitive class make the race attractive even if drivers are separated by huge gaps. But that day it was not the case. Lukas Hoch seemed to feel confident with his brand new car, securing his win easily. Only his few mistakes allowed Petr Novotný, who finished as second, to taste the feel of being first for a while. Third place came to Martin Janíček and fourth position was a great award for Ladislav Holásek moving himself up from six on the grid.

1/10 Hobby:

Igor Vlahovič, winner of this one, is not just a fast reporter. His driving is at least comparable with his typing speed. And he could take photos and record videos as well. Igor´s closest fellow on the track was Radko Černohous jr., whose driving skills are unstoppably improving. This time it was just a second place. The same we could say about third guy – Daniel Hons.

1/10 Truck:

“Hattrick” would be one word from Milan Peška to describe his performance on HIT in 2016/2017 season. Securing his third victory in a row he is a clear leader of standings. Right behind him finished Jiří Hrabec, very fast guy from northern Moravia with a bunch of RC experiences. TOP 3 was completed by Richard Granát.

1/10 Stock:

As usually, the Stock class filled three racing groups properly. Making his first attendance, Aleš Pelikán, was surprisingly able to set the early pace in front of the Slovakian youngster Oliver Havránek and well experienced Karel Kratochvíl. As heats continued, Aleš did not lose the speed and kept his TQ advantage to the end. The only exception was A2 run, where we saw a collision on the top, which let Karel Kratochvíl to take the win and being overall runner up as well. Third place came to Oliver Havránek and Martin Kratochvíl finished fourth in front of Matěj Bábovský.

1/10 Modified:

Last time the most prestigious class offered fights between Oliver Havránek, Kuba Šimurda and Zdenko Kunák. Those three drivers seemed to be pretty close each other even this time, but at the end Oliver was able to separate himself from the rest of the field, what brought him deserved victory. Kuba Šimurda saved his result by reaching victory in last heat. On the other hand, second place overall should not be considered as a huge success.
