The first race of Skoda Octavia Cup was planned on the Friday´s afternoon and first portion of points to the classification waited on the drivers. Racing times was attended by cold and windy weather.



Starting procedure was changed from standing to rolling. Jara Jirik had unlucky time already from the beggining. "Shame, I plunked to the shifting paddle and started basically from the third gear," explained in the finish little bit disappointed Jara. He fell to sixth position. There was no collision in the feared first corner but it chose the duty. Jara fell even on the seventh position. "I am not satisfied with the sevent place for sure but I think that I worth it. I made the mistake on the start, when I shifted higher gear and then missed position. After that there was a lot of slowing cars down to the first turn where I had to brake little more because of collision possibility. So i missed the next position and I kept the seventh position to the end."

As cold comfort is the fact, that Polish driver Rzepecki was penalized and Jara was moved to the sixth position but he will start from the third position in second race. The rules determine that the first eight drivers classified in first race will start in opositely in the second race.

"I think there is very balanced field. If we leave aside two fastest drivers, so we all drive very similar times," commented Jara in the end of the first race.
