The 2011 Rally Bohemia was round 6 of the European Rally Cup Central, as well as round 5 of the Czech Rally Championship. It was held over the weekend of 1st - 3rd July and ran a total length of 191.37km. The Czech driver Pavel Valousek Jun and his co-driver Zdenek Hruza entered the event, driving a Peugeot 207 S2000, run by the Peugeot Delimax Total Team. He would set the fastest times on 3 of the 15 special stages, with 4th fastest being his lowest stage finish. He would end the event in 2nd place overall, 35.2 seconds behind the veteran Belgian stager, Freddie Loix.

Valousek Jun made his rally debut in 1999, at the age of 20 and competing in the Rallysprint Kopna, piloting a Honda Civic Vti. He has driven a wide variety of rally machinery from the likes of Skoda, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Toyota, Ford, Citroen, Peugeot, Renault and Suzuki, and competed in JWRC, PWRC, ERC, IRC and WRC events. This year, he can once again be found behind the wheel of an S2000 Peugeot 207 of the Delimax Czech National Team.

Decal set number 174 from Reji Model features the Peugeot 207 S2000, as driven by Valousek Jun at the 2011 Rally Bohemia. The decals have been designed for use with the Belkits 207 S2000 (kit No BEL001). Inside the standard zip-lock bag, we find 2 full sheets of decals ( along with a small addition sheet) and a colour fold-out paint and marking guide.

The paint job required for this one couldn’t be simpler. The body shell is sprayed gloss white (Reji recommend Tamiya TS-26) and then the trim around the windows and front grill can be painted black. Everything else is supplied on the decal sheets. The blue and red strips are supplied in segments which are sensibly separated around selected panel joints. I would imagine that with the help from a little setting solution, they will snuggle down nicely over the body curves. Then the plethora of sponsor decals and rally placards can be applied. Reji have even supplied a number of decals to go inside the car (their placement is shown on the reverse of the paint guide), with most of them going on the racing seats. We also have the correct OMP logos, which are needed for the harnesses.

The decals themselves are the usual excellent Reji quality. All the images are sharp and crisp, with colours being nice and strong. The carrier film is extremely fine and the registry looks spot on.

Conclusion

This is the sort of aftermarket sheet that makes you want to buy the required kit, just so you can use the decals. They really are that nice. It’s a very simply paint job, the decal application shouldn’t be too taxing and you will end up with a rather attractive looking little Pug to add to the collection. What’s not to like?.

Recommended without hesitation.
