no comment Posted by smitkees

The Tatra Freunde International organzied a rally in Czech Republic this year. Start and finish were in the spa resort Tree of Life in Lázně Bělohra, near Hradec Králové, in Northern Bohemia.

SkodaMuseum

All competitors arrived safely on Thursday, May 30th.The next day we set off for Mlada Boleslav and vistited both the Skoda Museum and the Skoda works where we could witness its car production.

A little bit hidden, on the top floor of Skoda Museum, amid sculptures presenting Czechoslovak history, there was a surprising Hanzelka Zikmund sculpture, presenting Czech adventurism.

GradeAircraft1909

From the Skoda car museum we went to the Metodej Vlach aircraft museum with several nice aircraft, though my personal highlight was to see a 1909 Grade aircraft taking off, flying, landing and taxiing.

On saturday, June 1st, we continued to Josefov Fortress (Czech: Pevnost Josefov, German: Josefstadt or Josephstadt), a large historic defence complex of 18th-century military architecture, built between 1780-1790, in Jaroměř, eastern Bohemia.  Website: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josefov_Fortress

Lunch was used in the centre of Hradec Kralove after which a small sightseeing trip through the centre by steamboat and tourist train was offered.

Returning to Lázně Bělohra, we used part of the track of the road race circuit where between 1952 anf 1976 the international Prachovské Skály races were held. Though known from its motorcycle races, the Tatra works team competed here succesfully in the early ‘fifties with T 607s (Alois Mark on the photo) In the ’sixties Tatra Delphins competed in the Formula Junior class here.

We further visited the battleground of the famous 1866 battle between Prussians and Austrians and a sculpture park before returning to Lázně Bělohra.

Members of the former Tatra race team used to meet once a year for a beer and nostalgic talks.  They then also visited the start?finish of the local circuit, the Stramberk-Rybi-Zavisice triangle, t6he public roads not only used for incidental races, but also for Tatra testing. Regrettably, due to age problems, deaths and other problems, only August Lacina was able to be present. As a navigator, he teamed up with Milan Hruby, Jiri Pelucha, Ivan Micik and others.  But for at least three years he teamed up with the well-known Jaroslav Pavelka.
