But the ŠKODA Motorsport ace, co-driven by Pavel Dresler, wasn’t the only driver celebrating at the finish in the university city of Zlín this afternoon with Marijan Griebel provisionally crowned ERC Junior Under 28 champion following win number three of the campaign. Subject to FIA confirmation, Griebel gets a prize drive in a World Rally Car on a European round of the world championship in 2018 as his reward.

Elsewhere, Aleks Zawada topped the ERC Junior Under 27 category for the first time in 2017 to claim the title lead by five points and head the race for the 100,000 euros career progression fund on offer to the eventual champion. The Polish privateer also won the ERC3 category, as Tibor Érdi Jr clinched the ERC2 spoils. Emma Falcón won the ERC Ladies’ Trophy on her Zlín debut, while the ACCR Czech Team top-scored in the FIA European Rally Championship for Teams.
