After a short break, the Slovenian National Rally Championship continues in the Styrian capital. Already this week, on June 4th and 5th, racers for the Slovenian national championship will be fighting for seconds on Maribor roads. On Friday, there will also be a novelty, the first speed test from the Carinthian Bridge, which will be available live on the online media Planet Siol.net. The camera will be placed on the most attractive part of the 6,2km long speed test itself, but several laps will be taken so that everyone can be seen more than once. This year's undefeated Aleks Humar will defend the victory from two or two years ago, then with the Škoda Fabia S2000. This time, however, he will perform with a two-wheel-drive Clio.
