Aliyyah and Yasmeen Koloc to test Formula 4! ‘Take it easy’ says father!
Maybe for the first time, there is a chance of having two sisters, and even twins, racing in the highest levels of motorsport. A promoter Antonín Charouz, who brought Tomáš Enge as the first Czech driver to Formula 1, has announced that 16-year-old twins Aliyyah and Yasmeen Koloc will be testing with Ralf Schumacher.
“Antonín Charouz is one of those managers who never miss a talented driver. And I’d dare to guess that there are not many girls, if any, capable of driving Mercedes-AMG GT3 over 250 kph on the straights. I thought that Antonín is following our activities through social media, but I had never hoped that they could test with Ralf Schumacher. It surprised me and I appreciated,” says a happy father and Buggyra team owner Martin Koloc.
“Of course, they’re excited and I keep saying that you can achieve great results when you do what you enjoy. Right now, we have quickly surpassed our planned strategy of gradual progress. But we all realise that it’s kind of a once in a lifetime offer,” he added.
While Koloc has not had a chance to talk to his daughters about the testing much yet, the two-time European Truck Racing champion thinks that Aliyyah and Yasmeen Koloc are ready for the challenge.“The way I raise them is about guiding and discussions, where I have a final word. I used it before a few times when the girls wanted to play tennis despite being injured. But when it comes to racing, we don’t need to discuss anything. Also, they have a great relationship with David. Also, they’re going to be with a team, which is led by a six-time Grand Prix winner and a brother of the most famous Formula 1 driver of all time. They just need to take it easy and keep their feet on the ground.”
