Another battle on two fronts for Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra
While the situation at home is worsening, the racing continues for now. And the Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra team members are chasing more points in the top European series.
The larger group of the team now heads to the famous Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium, which hosts the 24-hour GT race this weekend with the Lamborghini SuperTrofeo series being a support series with two its own races.
“In the world of GT racing, there’s nothing more than a 24-hour race at Nordschleife, or here at Spa. It’s a legendary circuit, full of beautiful corners and places, that every driver, who ever had a chance to drive here, simply has to fall in love with,” says the team manager Jiří Mičánek jr. with excitement.
“We’ve come with just half of our crew. Jakub Knoll still doesn’t feel right after that big hit at Barcelona, so we’ve agreed not to take any risks and we’ll wait until Paul Ricard. Our team is going to be represented only by Libor Dvořáček and Kurt Wagner, who really love this track. They have a decent chance to finish well in the LB Cup, so we all believe in a good result this weekend.”
The other part of the team goes to another track from the Formula 1 calendar – Hungaroring. This Hungarian circuit hosts the final race of the TCR Eastern Europe series, where the team is racing this year with a team junior Michal Makeš with a Cupra TCR car.
“Michal currently holds 6th place in the standings. However, he’s only 4 points behind the 3rd place, so everything is still wide open. He knows Hungaroring quite well from previous competitions and he knows the car well by now. Surely, it’s not going to be easy for him, but I believe in a good result. And not just in Hungary, but in a good result overall as well,” added Jiří Mičánek ahead of a busy race weekend.
