Bad Luck for Introduction!
Unsuccessful beginning of the racing weekend in Jarama for David Vršecký is over. After not getting to the super pole for the first time in his racing career he ranked twelfth in the cup race.
There was a common denominator of the opening bad luck and that was leaking oil. The first warning came in the second free practice, but unfortunately repeated itself at the beginning of the time practice again. And the time of the opening warm-up unfortunately did not suffice for advance to the super pole. “We were trying something new, but the risk resulting in the pole position last year did not bear fruit this year,” admitted David before the cup race. He started the race successfully and already ranked eleventh after the first lap. But after that he started a long duel with the local trucker Mariezcurrena. "Javier was very excited and well aware of racing at home. He pushed me off the track several times and there is no wonder, regarding the circumstances. After one such manoeuvre I was also overtaken by Makinen. Nothing to be proud of, but I will fight on," assessed David the progress of the race. Decent was the performance of the second Buggyra pilot Michal Matějovský, who ranked fifteenth on the technically demanding circuit in his only second race in the European race truck championship.
