Two to twelve for the Slovenska Strela

Enthusiasts of the Technical Museum in Kopřivnice for a long time desire to fix legendary train from 1936. Strela so-called Slovak Although the spring cleaning see through, but most would need to get rid of the rust and restore the interior and drive, which would cost up to twenty million.

“Yes, overhaul is much needed to know, but unfortunately lacks necessary million,” said Director of the Technical Museum in Kopřivnice Lumír Kaválek.
Slovak missile stands outside the museum under the shelter that this national cultural monument protected from the weather a little.
Above varnish increasingly prevails rust, condition of the roof begins to be acute, rehabilitation needed by the interior and drive.
Only basic renovations comes to about six million, if restorers started the Slovak strely thoroughly, suddenly, the amount jumped to about twenty million.
The train, which before World War 2 ahead of the development of many years, belongs to Tatra Trucks. It was bought last year Kopřivnice. A museum with her.
However, the current priority of investment in manufacturing and maintaining employment. “At present, expenditure on restaurant-conservation work we can not afford. Any activity to improve the condition of the train have our support, but at the time of restructuring the company, this support can have a significant financial dimension, “said spokesman Andrej Tatra Trucks Čírtek.
He added that although the rescue of the company on the right track, still struggling to make the Tatras was not just a museum.
Another route is therefore a subsidy. Before about six years ago kopřivnické museum lost in the battle for the support of the Lower Vitkovice areas.
And with other subsidies completely misses the shot. Once the Ministry for Regional Development announced a grant program for the national monument, there were just real estate.
In addition, grant programs for the period 2014-2020, which instead of counties to manage ministries, are not yet known.
“If the bullet did not touch, and lasts even ten years, maybe a little more. But the later the start, the costs will be higher, “said museum director Kaválek.

After receiving information that the Silk Way Rally in the territory of Russia will be cancelled, we started communicating with competition and our partners. Together we came to a conclusion to take part in a very interesting event in Poland particularly the RALLY BRESLAU. Beside our team, the registration was confirmed also by other teams from Holland, Poland and Germany.

This event will mean a significant enrichment of our season and I believe that our friends and fans from the Czech Republic and other countries as well will find their way to support our team since after a long time they will have a chance to watch Dakar monsters in action close by” said Ales Loprais.

Considering the European standards, this event will be impressively longer, lasting from July 12th till July 19th and being held in Poland which has rich experience with organizing off road events.

The second event which stood out for us was the well-known BAJA HUNGARIA which is also one of the events of the FIA official calendar events. This event is shorter yet very attractive for the fans with the possibility of watching the racing in specific sections of the track where the fans can see from one place couple interesting sections of the race at once.

RALLY BAJA HUNGARIA takes place August 14th -17th and becomes then the second European event where you could meet the InstaForex Loprais Team.

Currently, the team is working on implementing the new unit Gyrtech into the special Queen 69 and on preparing for the two upcoming events.

Brasilian Tatras

T87Brazil2014

We have seen that Tatras are present in many European countries, in Africa (South Africa), Asia ( Vietnam), Australia, Northern America. Until now South America was the only continent where a Tatra classic car was unknown, but here it is!  It showed up in the Brazilan town of Araxa, a city and municipality in southwest Minas Gerais state, at a classic car show.

Araxá / MG – Collecting and restoring old vehicles is a worldwide passion – you can find this hobby enthusiasts in all countries. It is estimated that in Brazil, the antigomobilismo today has approximately 10,000 practitioners – and every year millions of people are attracted by the hundreds of meetings classical models, which occur in all states. From 18 to 22 June, the cinematic scene of Taua Grande Hotel Spa & Convention in mining Hidromineral Araxá really gained an air of “period piece.” The surroundings of the hotel was taken for more than 300 cars from different eras and countries, who came to participate in the 21st edition of the National Meeting of Old Cars. The biennial event is sponsored by Fiat and also receives the name of Brazil Classics Fiat Show. The expectation is that over 40,000 people have attended to admire the “veterans” exposed.

The site said over the T 87 all the well known fairy tales:

Tatra 87, 1947 – The Tatra was created in the city of Koprivnice, in today’s Czech Republic. Today is dedicated to the production of trucks and military vehicles – in partnership with American Navistar.One of the most significant brand car, the Tatra 87 had a rear engine V8 3.0 liter air cooled which produced 85 bhp and reached 160 km / h. The resemblance to the old Beetle is not casual. Adolf Hitler – who ordered the creation of a “volkswagen” means “people’s car” – and Ferdinand Porsche, who presented the first prototype of the German compact in 1936, were greatly influenced by the Tatra 77, launched in 1934 and which led the Tatra 87. Hitler had experienced Tatras during political tours of Czechoslovakia and had also dined several times with Hans Ledwinka Austrian designer models the Czech brand. After designing the popular vehicle envisioned by the “Führer”, talking about Ledwinka Porsche admitted “Well, sometimes I looked over his shoulder and sometimes he looked over mine”. The Tatra filed a lawsuit – interrupted in 1939 when Nazi Germany annexed Czechoslovakia. The matter was reopened after World War II and in 1961 Volkswagen paid 3 billion DM to Tatra in an out of court settlement.
