Visit Rally Finland with the Czech National TeamAugust 25th, 2014
Driver Martin Prokop takes us behind the scenes competing on the international stage as part of the self-financed Jipocar Czech National Team. The private team goes head-to-head with the deep-pocketed manufacturer-sponsored teams and must do so with a much smaller crew, smaller facilities, and a much smaller budget.
Prokop himself takes us into the inner workings of the WRC team, from the team kitchen to the team truck and preparing for Rally Finland. Prokop and Co-Driver Jan Tomanek competed well in the rally, but had an accident in Stage 11 which required some quick work to repair his Ford Focus RS overnight. Unfortunately, the damage was too extensive to repair in time for the next day’s stage and the team had to drop out of the event.
