Taking it easy
“My girlfriend and I take it easy, enjoying the countryside and switching off from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. That’s why we enjoy it so much!” says Pavel Borecký, who works as a firefighter and chemical service technician for the ŠKODA Fire and Rescue Service, summing up a common attitude of the ŠKODA Classic Tour crews.
Pavel Borecký set off on the ŠKODA Classic Tour in a ŠKODA 120 L.
He drove the course in a ŠKODA 120 L from 1988. Pavel Borecký got the car from friends who had inherited it, in its original condition and with low mileage, so it didn’t need any major renovation. This year he has already taken part in the Bohemia Veteran Rally, and this is the second time he has entered the ŠKODA Classic Tour together with his girlfriend, who is navigating. “Last year we missed out on a top-three finish in one of the stages by a few seconds, but our overall 22nd place out of almost 200 participants was still pretty good,” Borecký remembers.

He also hints that next year’s event may take a different form for their family team. “My girlfriend got a ŠKODA FAVORIT. It still has to undergo a few repairs over the winter, but hopefully you will see it for yourself next year,” Pavel Borecký says confidently.
