Czech born Mischo Erban is stoked for the first World Cup in his native country.
Kozakov, Czech Republic- Friday's on-track activities were canceled out by intermittent rain showers that kept the track wet the entire day. With the high-speed straights where speeds of 100 km/h (62 mph) followed by hairpin corners and fast sweepers, the track has been declared too dangerous to run under wet conditions.
The weather forcasts for Saturday are mixed with some calling for dry and sunny conditions in the afternoon while others are caling for rain the entire day. Everyone will be waiting patiently in the event tent hoping for a break in the weather. Sven von Schlachta has provided the IGSA with some beautiful shots from Thursday.
