Czech Rally Zlin 2015

28th August 2015 - 30th August 2015


  • Ever-present in the ERC since the championship’s streamlining in 2004, Barum Czech Rally Zlín turns 45 in 2015 and will once again take place around the South Moravian university city, 300 kilometres south of the Czech capital Prague. It’s a Tarmac test like no other due to the bumpy and sometimes broken nature of the road surface. To add to the challenge, several stages feature high-speed blasts through forest areas and intermittent showers are always a possibility. While the weather might be hard to predict, huge numbers of fans follow the action, especially on the opening night time Zlín superspecial.
