Internext Rally Vsetín: Prízek/Sýkora new winner of Czech CC Championship.






Cross country rally Vsetín is the only Czech race that has survived for more than two years. Since 2003, when the first edition took place instead of another cancelled race, "Vsetín" became extremely popular amongst drivers and fans. This rally is very specific and is more sprint than long-distance rally. Special stages are usually 10 kilometers long with eight or nine timed sections.

This year’s edition of "Vsetín" has been hit hard by bad weather. Five days of heavy rain has made part of the track very difficult to cross and organizer had to skip this most attractive part of the race. Nevertheless the race didn’t suffer from lack of competition or thrill. The stakes were high, Czech and Polish international championship titles were still in games as well as FIA CEZ Trophy.

In previous seven years only two men shared the title; Miroslav Rís (2003-2005) and Miroslav Zapletal (2006-2009). Now two pilots had a chance to become new Czech champion; provisional leader Zdenek Porízek and Viktor Chytka. Under normal circumstances Chytka with T2 Mitsubishi Pajero wouldn’t stand a chance against Porízek’s X-Raid-produced BMW X5 CC. But with last-minute change for state-of-art Hummer H3 Evo Chytka’s chances rose significantly.

The first to hit the road on Saturday Chytka fully took the advantage of a clean track. He stormed the selection with stunning 24 second advantage on the second Wlodzimierz Grajek (Mitsubishi Pajero MRT). This section was repeated twice and while almost everyone improved its time only Chytka and Grajek were slower due to much dirty track. The second portion of the race consisted of three gravel specials across the forest. Chytka utilized the familiarity of home track and maintained his lead. Chytka is the only one to take part in every “Vsetín” since its creation. Relatively quietly Porízek moved up the order, he overtook Zoli Garamvölgyi (Nissan Pathfinder) and Károly Fazekas (BMW X5) and was only 4 seconds behind second placed Grajek.

The last part of 8th Internext Rally Vsetín happened on the same track but in reverse order. Chytka gave Hummer the second win in Vsetín after last year Zapletal’s triumph. On the very last special Grajek failed to keep Porízek behind and lost the second place. Six minutes behind the winner Dariusz Zyla (Mitsubishi Pajero) finished the race on eighth position to get third place in Czech championship.

Legendary five time Dakar winner Josef Machácek (Yamaha Raptor) came to Vsetín to get his first national title and he succeeded. Second placed youngster Václav Bazika (Yamaha Raptor) tested new machine from Machácek’s production. In thrilling fight for the third place Vlastimil Tosenovský (E-ATV 690) lost to Rudolf Sajan (Gas Gas 450 HP) but kept trio of Polish rivals behind. The only woman behind the handlebars of quad was only 17-year old Sandra Ulrichová.

Cup of Slovak Republic was running concurrently with Czech championship with the same race schedule and classification and thus with the same results.

Final standings of Czech international championship - cars:

1. Zdenek Prízek / Marek Sýkora I 85 points
2. Viktor Chytka / Zdenek Ulehla I 75 points
3. Dariusz Zyla / Malgorzata Zyla I 62 points
4. Juraj Ulrich / Daniela Ulrichová I 44 points (1st in T2 class)

Final standings of Czech international championship - quads:

1. Josef Machácek I 100 points
2. Klaudiusz Rostowski I 82 points
3. Vlastimil Tošenovský I 49 points

Thanks to slightly different points’ distribution four pilots were supposed to fight for Polish title; Porízek, Chytka, Zyla and Grajek. Chytka as an event winner took maximum of possible points which shifted him to second place in general ranking of RMPST (Rajdowe Mistrzostwa Polski Samochodów Terenowych) just one point ahead of Grajek.

Rumors are that last event of RMPST planned to take part in Sopot will be cancelled. This makes Zdenek Porízek Polish champion, too.

Final standings of Polish international championship – T1 class:

1. Zdenek Prízek / Marek Sýkora I 24 points
2. Viktor Chytka / Zdenek Ulehla I 20 points
3. Wlodzimierz Grajek / Rafal Cieply I 18 points

Final standings in Polish international championship – T2 class:

1. Juraj Ulrich / Daniela Ulrichová I 17 points
2. Zbigniew Wieclawek / Ryszard Wieclawek I 12 points
3. Grzegorz Szwagrzyk / Piotr Brakowiecki I 8 points

Final standings in Polish international championship – TH class:

1. Robert Lyzwa / Michal Krotiuk I 6 points

For second year cross running country rallies have their own Central European Zone Trophy. Premiere edition was won by Balázs Szalay. He had the best conditions to regain the trophy but decided to skip “Vsetín.” So the doors became open for a whole bunch of others. Károly Fazekas was provisional leader, Zdenek Porízek was two points behind, Dariusz Zyla another three and Viktor Chytka with 20 points also had a chance to replace Szalay. At the end Porízek managed to outrun Fazekas and took the honors.

Note: Last round of CEZ Trophy, Baja Montenegro, was called off again this year.

Final standings of CEZ Cross country rally trophy – T1 class:

1. Zdenek Prízek / Marek Sýkora I 34 points
2. Károly Fazekas / Péter Maurer I 32 points
3. Viktor Chytka / Zdenek Ulehla I 30 points

Final standings of CEZ Cross country rally trophy – T2 class:

1. Juraj Ulrich / Daniela Ulrichová I 57 points
2. Grzegorz Szwagrzyk / Piotr Brakowiecki I 32 points
3. Zbigniew Wieclawek / Ryszard Wieclawek I 25 points

Final standings of CEZ Cross country rally trophy – TH class:

1. Robert Lyzwa / Michal Krotiuk I 30 points
2. Dávid Czirkelbach / Péter Szász I 18 points
