Brno´s Dragon for the second time: Jiří Mičánek goes for the top laurels on the home track

Jiří Mičánek took first and second place in the first race of the year at the Masaryk Circuit. The Brno racer would like to build on these results, which surprised the Czech hill climbing scene. "It is a challenge for me for several reasons - firstly, it is my home race, secondly, I feel obliged to continue my father's successful tradition in this discipline and thirdly, it is fun to challenge the guys who are dedicated to hills as their main discipline," says the pilot of the Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra stable with a smile. 


The autumn round of the Brno Dragon is held in a different format than the summer part - the start is at the lowest point of the track after the Schwantz turn and the competitors will climb the track counterclockwise - i.e. in the opposite direction to what is normally raced on the circuit. "For me, who knows the circuit by heart in the classic direction, it's an extremely interesting experience. It's basically a completely new track that I will have to learn very quickly," says Mičánek.


In the first race of the summer, Jiří Mičánek, behind the wheel of the team's Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO, dominated the second race, finishing second in the first one behind Mark Rybníček in his KTM X-BOW GT4. His chance for a better result in that race was ruined by a risky decision to put on slicks, even though the track was only just drying out after a drizzly morning. Even after a trip to the duck, however, Mičánek finished the run just behind Rybníček, albeit with a significant loss. "Now the conditions are supposed to be ideal, so I would like to stay on the track the whole time. And I wonder if I will be able to give back the second place to Mark, who seems to have worked a bit more on his car," said Jiří Mičánek.


The race will take place on Saturday 16 October at the Masaryk Circuit, with grandstand C open for spectators. Entrance is free.
