Welcome to the author’s pages dedicated to books about Czech rally!
Year 2007 has become the beginning of our still unremitting effort to preserve the automobile history of the Czech Republic in printed books full of personal stories and to-date photographs.
The first out of three yet published pieces dedicated to rally topic is the most extensive book about the history of Rallye Skoda / Bohemia named Rally Written by Heart. Three years later a biography came to light about Ladislav Krecek, local multi champion and former factory’s driver, named: When Krecek Dusted. Tragic events taking part in following years led us to take some changes in the concept of our books. Following piece Rally is Named Bohemia contains spectators’ instructions and thanks to the understanding of project sponsors and partners it was sold for a very symbolic price. The whole print out has found their owners within several months. A part of gain from the sale was given to purchasing multifunctional beds for ICU in children’s hospital in Mlada Boleslav aiming for helping children and also for changing viewpoint of public to rally, which has been vilified by shallow Czech media. Closer introduction with all our issued books can be found in the History section.
In August 2017, we christened our fourth book, this time about the biggest internal competition, Barum Czech Rally Zlin. There are more than 600 pages of photos, comments, narrations, and full results of the most popular Czech competition hidden under the name of the book, Yellow-blue Rally.
Again, we have connected the publishing of the book with a charity and spreading the education of safety during rally watching. Photos, not only from the christening but also from the hospital where we purveyed the equipment for the children's section, you can find in this website in News section.
