51st International Tatra Veteran Rally Beskydy 2020

100 years of Jaroslav Pavelka 5. 9. 2020

This year’s 51st International Tatra Veteran Rally Beskydy, traditionally organized by TVCC Kopřivnice, was dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the birth of Tatra racer Jaroslav Pavelka. The sleepy ride led to the athlete’s birthplace – the village of Libhošť. More than 100 beautiful Tatra mountains illuminated the local sports complex. In the end, only one vehicle of the museum veterans took part in the ride – the Tatra T 57 with Michal Preiss, the other did not drive at all due to its technical condition. The program included a panel exhibition and the documentary Závodník Jaroslav Pavelkawhose implementation arose from the initiative of the municipality of Libhošť. For the implementation, we managed to collect a large number of documents from various, which did not even fit into the final version of the presentation. For this occasion, we borrowed a T2-607 monopost from the collection – the first Tatra formula, which also celebrates the 70th anniversary of its existence. After a few years, the exhibit left the environment of the museum and was exhibited outdoors. An important part of the all-day program was also the unveiling of a memorial plaque at the birthplace of Jaroslav Pavelka. The act of revelation was even attended by Pavelek’s wife and daughter and husband, who were affected by strong emotions. We bring a selection photo gallery from the whole day. Thank you for managing to recall the memory of the personality of post-war Tatra racing – Jaroslav Pavelka.
