The amount of success and all team’s performance were awarded in The Nations’ Cup: the Czech Republic won having an 18-point lead over Russia and Slovakia.

Michal Matějovský: "It was a brilliant stop to a perfect season. Likewise yesterday I kept speeding up, so got another precious points in the two tight races. Second place in the European championship has been the best result in my career so far, and I’d like to thank all who have been supporting me all the time: my family, friends, partners, sponsors, but thanks also go to all team. Their job during the full year was great so feeling calm I could just concentrate on the best results."

Petr Fulín: "First, I’d like to thank all members of the team for the perfect season, virtually, everything worked as expected, and despite the limited budget and effort to save the car we did defend the title. What is more, my teammate Michal Matějovský took the second place so as to the team side it came off best."
