IRC A SS10 - Delecour makes up 2 places @ 07:04 PM - Maybe even 3, as Pech in the Mini went off and has to repair damage after the stage. Stage win for Kopecky. Stage was mainly wet though, not the ice we expected at night. Results after leg1 (SS10):

10th= Cerny/Korhout, Skoda, +3m09s3

IRC A SS8 - dramatic stage as expected @ 04:07 PM - No ice, which might of course change for the re-run tonight.

1st= Kopecky/Dresler, Skoda, 1h11m34s6;

10th= Cerny/Korhout, Skoda, +2m43s8

IRC A SS7 - Time penalty for Delecour @ 03:17 PM - Kopecky and Delecour fastest on this one. However there was a 1m time penalty for Delecour after SS6 for bookin gin early.

1st= Kopecky/Dresler, Skoda, 56m58s3;
2nd= Baumschlager/Wicha, Skoda, +13s6;

9th= Kajetanowicz/Baran, Subaru, +46s4;
10th= Solowow/Baran, Peugeot, +46s9

IRC A SS2 - Everything could mix @ 08:57 AM - Indeed the wide tyres for Kopecky & Bouffier were wrong choice. Kopecky still leads, but lost 27s to stage winner Baumschlager, who in turn had the wrong tyres for the 1st stage. Next stage should have ice too. Results after SS2:
1st= Kopecky/Dresler, Skoda, 20m50s8;

3rd= Delecour/Savignoni, Peugeot, +29s6;

IRC A SS1 - Kopecky first ERC leader, but... @ 08:11 AM - Jan Kopecky won the first stage with Bouffier 2nd. But both drivers are on more an asphalt tyre, the next 2 stages in this loop will have much more ice. Frigyes Turan crashed out already. Results after SS1:
1st= Kopecky/Dresler, Skoda, 13m08s7;
2nd= Bouffier/Fournier, Peugeot, +4s7;
3rd= Pech/Uhel, Mini, +12s6;
