Jan Černý began his career in rallycross and hillclimb competitions, before switching his focus to rallying in 2007. In 2010, he achieved his first major accolade by lifting the 2WD laurels in the FIA European Rally Championship, replicating that result in the Czech Rally Championship the same season. He successfully reclaimed both titles two years later – adding a third domestic crown to his CV in 2013 – following a year in the inaugural WRC Academy in 2011, in which he tallied a trio of top five finishes from six starts.

In 2014, the Czech ace ranked third overall in the ERC Junior Championship – winning two of the five events he contested – although budgetary restrictions subsequently obliged a return to the national scene. One-off European outings over the subsequent two years yielded third place on Barum Czech Rally Zlín in 2016 behind the wheel of a Škoda Fabia R5, before Černý rejoined the international stage on a more consistent basis in 2017. In 2020, he returned to rallycross in FIA Euro RX’s Super1600 (now RX3) category, concluding the campaign eighth in the standings after reaching the semi-final in both rounds. He will embark upon a full season in RX3 in 2021.
