Hermann Jolink hat uns mit einem Hoskovice Report versorgt, leider fehlt die Zeit zum übersetzen. Deswegen in Englisch.

Sunday the Czech people are very friendly and the riders and the public gave us a very good Support. At 13.00 the Drag Race starting but Ondrey Clymciw CZ exploded  his SSB Turbo Susuki after the finish. An oildown of 600 meters took  about 1 ½ hour to clean up, but that was good for the traction because the sun was warming up the track.
Top Gas ¼ Final  Jolink 8.384 sec with 253 kmh winning over Niklas  D whos engine died after the start. ½ Finale Jolink 8.376 sec with 253 kmh bye run  again new best time 8.376 sec also a personal best on the 201 m 5.284 with 215 kmh ( before 8.479 sec and 5.313-214 kmh) van Schie  9.043-177 bye run Niessen engine problems, v d Boer 8.765-238 winning over Heitmann 10.396-233 who had clutch problems.
