Visitors to the motorcycle fair in Brno (March 8-11, 2018) can visit the motor company's stand in Pavilion F, which this year will be held in the BVV area on June 23 and 24. Between the pavilions of the Brno exhibition center, racing engines roar again in the summer, which were last heard here both in the past and again last year after fifty years. The stand will be in the spirit of these races. 

The highlight of the program of every race in Czechoslovakia in the second half of the 1960s were the Formula 3 cars, which ran at the exhibition grounds until 1967. Otto Buchberger successfully started here three times. Today, the eighty-four-year-old racer will also be present at the stand with his single-seater Drak 1, which was renovated by the Brno motorsport legend, designer and professor at the Brno Technical University Karel Jaroš.

Another important celebrity will be Josef Michl with his Škoda 130 RS. In the 2017 season, he became the champion of the Czech Republic, the champion of Slovakia, the winner of the FIA zone of Central Europe and the European champion in historic car uphill races with Škoda 130 RS and Porsche 911 RS cars. Racer and engine tuner Josef Michl (*1949) started his sports career in motocross, successfully raced in automobile competitions, drove single-seaters of the Easter formula, but achieved the most success in touring car races. He started on circuits for the first time at the end of the 1975 season. He won 24 national championship titles on circuits, hill climbs and rallies. In 1981, he was a member of the winning Škoda team in the European Touring Car Championship. Twelve times he became the European champion in historic car uphill races. Today, Josef Michl is primarily a constructor and owner of the Michl Motorsport team.

The partner of the event, the Technical Museum in Brno, will exhibit Jawa road racing motorcycles from the 1970s and 1980s. years of the 20th century. The Jawa 250 Junior/1970, Jawa 125 Boxer/1974 and Jawa 125/1974 motorcycles, among others, also started on the Masaryk circuit in Brno. They come from the private collection of Václav Svoboda and can be seen in the permanent exhibition "Brno on two wheels" in the building of the Technical Museum in Brno, Purkyňova 105.

The Rudge Ulster motorcycle "from the poster" from 1929 will also be on display at the stand. With this sidecar, E. Boxhorn won his category in the most prestigious uphill race in our country Zbraslav–Jíloviště 1929. The Rudge brand was one of the fastest at the turn of the thirties, in 1930 took the first three places in the Junior category and the first two places in the Senior category at the most important Tourist Trophy race on the Isle of Man. A victory that no other brand has repeated. As the icing on the cake, one more Rudge sidecar will be on display, this time a TT Replica model equipped with a Marshall supercharger.

A unique holiday for car and motorcycle lovers – Brno Revival – a festival of speed between the pavilions – is being prepared by the Czechoslovak Auto Club for Moravia and Silesia, which continues the tradition of the organizer of the pre-war Czechoslovak Grand Prix at the Masaryk Circuit.
