A new Tatra Museum in Koprivnice?

Moravian-Silesian region and the Tatra Kopřivnice are planning the creation of a new Technical Museum. One of the most visited sites in the country would be relocated to the premises of the Tatra company. The project, worth 120 million crowns, but caused resentment on the Kopřivnice city hall. They argue that they were not informed.

Dilapidated building of the former foundry Tatra Kopřivnice immediately opposite of the train station could be in the future a new technical museum Kopřivnice.

“Tatra moment has 200 veterans actually possible exhibits but there is nowhere to place,” says spokesman Andrej Cirtek.  The existing museum is housed in a building which was originally the second part of the culture house. According to museum director Lumíra Kaválka space that belongs to the city, from the very beginning small. “The collection was given to exhibitions without without match the original building downright museum requirements,” says Kaválek.

The museum brings to Kopřivnice year 100,000 people and generates profit. Kopřivnická Hall criticizes therefore, that a new project only became aware of the resolution of the regional council. They claim that the mayor of ODS Miroslav Kopečný.

“The fact that Tatra Technical Museum is the seventh most visited in the Czech Republic, I think deserves to be on how the city was informed and was in the preparation of such a project invited.”

“We Kopřivnice with the city to act, but at the moment I have the information that they should already reach the town Koprivnice Tatra managers,” responds CSSD deputy governor Martin Sikora.

Regional officials had to hurry with the application for European aid. If it gets in the fall county, could the new museum to be opened in two to three years.

Mattsee Tatra meeting welcomes new-born TFI

RallySchildEntwurf

Organised by some Tatra Freunde International diehards who regretted the fact that the TFI had become neglected, not organising a members’meeting in 2015 and 2016, the Tatra meeting in Mattsee (A) became a highly successful meeting.

Mattsee2016Start

The meeting was held in the small city of Mattsee, the place where the TFI was founded. With close to fourty Tatras from seven European countries attending the May 5-8 meeting, several members jumped the wagon and formed a new supervisory board, breathing new life into the club. The rally was contested by two very rare Tatras, both from Czech Republic: a T 77 from Prague and a T 17/31 from Ostrava. Anothrt surprise visit was made by a unrestored T 87 from Germany.

MattseeSalzburg

The two-day rally visited the highlight of the Mattsee area, including the city of Salzburg, the KTM works, a locomotive museum and last but not least Ernst Piech’s Fahrtraum Museum, where the grandson of Ferdinand Porsche himself acted as a guide for the visiting Tatra  owners.

Video and story: T 603 B5

Urvan Tatra 603 crushing opponents at the Nurburgring and then go home

May 6, 2016

Officially called Tatra 603-2 B5 Marathon.In the mid-sixties he plagued compete in the famous race in Marathon de la Route and attracted uproar unique ejector cooling.And thanks to the children of the original navigator and rider fascinates today.
Načítají se informace o videu…

This “šestsettrojka” at first glance is not settled limousine that drove the Communist functionaries.Bright orange color, squatted outside the country, black hood.A rear unmistakable “trumpet”, which are the most visible part of the ejector cooling.

Photo Gallery

Before some fifty years ago this car from Kopřivnice factory broke the opponents in European endurance races that lasted several days.At the wheel steering wheel three masters: Adolf Veřmiřovský, Alois Mark and Stanislav Hajdušek.The latter Kopřivnice worked as a test driver.And his sons with “dad’s” Tatra racing today.Among other things, it will present this weekend at the Brno Masaryk Circuit.

The socialist Otesánek what surprised the world

Orange specimen was built in Koprivnice for the season 1967. “Šestsettrojky” he had belonged to the famous Marathon de la Route, čtyřiaosmdesátihodinovém endurance race, which rode on the legendary northern loop of the Nürburgring, the esteemed opponent.

Tatra 603-2 B5 Marathon

“In 1965, when he rode Tatras for the first time, they finished first and second in their category, finished one car.A year later, the Tatra first, second and third, “calculates Stanislav Hajdušek junior, fresh sixties and former extra league hockey player who competes today with the car for pleasure.

This orange Tatra just flown trio Veřmiřovský-Mark-Hajdušek then in 1967 finished the race in third place in his class and fourth overall.In autumn the then still he presented on circuit races in Brno and at Rallye Sumava.And then it was a successful racing Tatra project completed.

Tatra nettle in Kopřivnice

When Hajdušek junior brothers in the nineties decided to try dad Tatras find and put together, they had a difficult task.After completion of the racing project because all the machines back into production or factory rebuilt into a civilian car that was included in the regular service.”We rode in Prague at the ministry, while others ended up in an agricultural cooperative in the Bruntal.Only one race remained the engine used in the testing of motorway traffic, “recounted Stanislav Hajdušek.

Searching in archives and registry vehicle eventually found Hajduškovi Tatra – immobile, just ten kilometers from Kopřivnice in the garden in the grass.He owned the widow of the last owner and did not know what to do with it.”So we agreed with her that she put decent for Tatra wheeled Skoda hundred,” says Hajdušek.

Tři závodní tatry před odjezdem na Marathon de la Route 1967. Všechny vozy byly oranžové, odlišit je šlo podle barvy masky.Three racing Tatras before leaving for the Marathon de la Route 1967. All the cars were orange, to distinguish them was the color of the mask.

Renovation lasted a relatively short time – less than two years.In the mid 90s there was another time, veterans were far from such business.”Back then it was a pleasure to do it.She lived a lot of witnesses and everyone we love to help with that.Only one engine specialists, which we adjusted the carburetors Weber, the threw a blanket over himself, not to see what he does, “laughs Hajdušek.

“But anybody can ride”

Restoration of cars had also had “therapeutic effect”.Hajdušek senior was seriously ill and he says his son, he wanted to die.Construction of car he should return zest for life.”With the Tatra, we brought him to other thoughts.We had him in the garage as such officer memorial, “he says today, sixty Hajdušek junior.The therapy worked.Former test pilot Tatry Hajdušek lived for 83 years, died three years ago.

A renovated drove his Tatra truck?”I know that, yes, drove up.But then he got out and said: “Gentlemen, what I will not give a damn.The clutch is not prošlápnout, rigid brake, the steering wheel does not tighten.It’s hard.How can you ride, “says Hajdušek.

Posádku dnešní tatry tvořili v roce 1967 (zleva) Alois Mark, Adolf Veřmiřovský a Stanislav Hajdušek senior.Today the crew of Tatra formed in 1967 (from left) Mark Alois, Adolf Veřmiřovský and Stanislav Hajdušek senior.

The most important thing to them but my dad gave earlier.”He taught us to ride.I used to go with him to the work of his test drive awfully happy.Seeing a driver who ranks timely, timely brakes, panic.My little brother with him then watched open-mouthed as you brake and beating of a strumming heel gas.Serial Tatra 603 per ordinary barumských praskačkách was one big continuous slip, but when daddy went, it was a concert. ”

Racing clothing?Tesilky, shirts and shoes

With that hardness had Hajdušek senior truth, his son openly admits.Today renovated Tatra is still from the original lot different.Marathon races because then looked different than today’s automotive competition.Competitors got home in the car, crossed half of Europe, where for three days and three nights of racing and went back home.The car had to be built on such a scheme, the chassis was therefore much more comfortable mood.

Historians in Brno

Tatra 603-2 B5 Marathon will be one of more than a hundred historic sports cars that will be presented at the Masaryk circuit in Brno this weekend May 7 to 8.The Brno race track hosts the Austrian Histo CUP, Czech Penrite Cup Classic Cup and drive formulas Czechoslovak Club F3.

And the differences are, of course, the safety regulations.”Back then, racing overalls formed tesilky blue, white shirts, shoes and leather gloves without fingers,” says Hajdušek.And it emphasizes that it is definitely not thinking hyperbole.In order to Tatra could race today, of course, they must have complete safety equipment.The car must roll cage must have an emergency battery master switch.It is a tax for that marathon Tatra can still compete for real.Otherwise it could happen except in a museum.

“Trumpets” hit the Nordschleife ban

On the contrary, these “trumpets”, which will attract at first glance, his most famous car in the race stints have not.What they actually are?With lots of other improvements under the hood consists of an ejector cooling system.This creates a negative pressure while driving and the engine compartment then faster air flows.The motor then uchladí without otherwise conventional fans that add weight to the car and detract from engine performance.

Díky ejektorovému chlazení nemusí mít motor ventilátory, které mu ubírají 20 koní.Thanks ejektorovému engine cooling fans may not have to detract from his 20 horses.

To put the numbers: an ejector Tatra had about 170 horses, with some fans 150. That was not the competitors at the Marathon de la Route no avail.A side effect is ejectors – politely put – a very distinctive sound speech.Such that even in tolerant sixties was skousnutelný.

“Even without the engine noise generators exceeds 105 decibels.When she went after Norschleife Tatra, knew all the villagers kilometers away, “laughs Hajdušek.For comparison – the noise of a hundred decibels issued a jackhammer.Formula 1 in its heyday had 145 decibels.

At Goodwood?After the big “masking”

The highlight of a career rebirth “šestsettrojky” was not yet famous Goodwood Revival Festival.Organizers there marathon Tatra wanted, but it was one small problem.He did not fit into the rules.According to it, they laugh at Goodwood to drive only cars produced before 1960. Conceptually, there šestsettrojka belongs, is produced since 1956, but this piece was apparently later.

John Haugland, who as a former pilot Skoda Rally participation Tatra contended, finally Hajduškům suggested, be adjusted to mask the car version in 1960. “Paradoxically, this did not bother them.Brother took the gnashing of teeth cutter and an ancestor we remade the oval version with three lights.And as we came back from Goodwood again we rebuilt it back, “says Stanislav Hajdušek junior.

Roars like a Spitfire during the war

However, for the feeling to participate in the most famous “revival” of the world it was worth.Commotion aroused course mainly ejectors.”They went there for us witnesses of the war and said that he Tatra goes, it sounds like flying a Spitfire,” recalls racer.

Na slavný festival v Goodwoodu pomohl maratonské tatře John Haughland. Jen bylo potřeba přestavět čelo vozu na starší „tříokou“ verzi.At the famous Goodwood Festival helped marathon Tatra John Haughland.Only it was necessary to rebuild the entire car to the older “three-eyed” version.

It was just tiring always someone explain how the ejector cooling functions.”We ended up hurting mouth so that we were painted with a sketch explaining how and someone asked, we just wordlessly pointed to the paper,” he laughs.

To Goodwood Tatra returned three times.And every time she graduated before leaving for reconstruction, “three-eyed” and after returning back to “four-eyed”.Leave your car in the version for Goodwood said he would be in the Czech Republic failed.”Here people know these cars.The first bit of informed Tatrovaks would send us to hell, “he laughs Hajdušek.
