Buggyra Reports Ready! Vršecký and Lacko Tested in Most before Valencia
The European truck racing elite coursed the North Bohemian circuit in Most in the past days and weeks. Including the pair of Czech pilots of the Buggyra International Racing System team David Vršecký and Adam Lacko and the testing pilot Jiří Forman. The team reports that everything works as it should and a week before Valencia they are ready for the fight!
This week the Czech Buggyra team completed their testing programme before the approaching season of the European race truck championship. The season will start on the last April weekend at the Spanish circuit in Valencia where the trucks last raced in 2001. Like every year the members of one of the most successful race truck teams would like to attack the top ranks.
“I am much satisfied with the testing! Of course, I cannot reveal our achieved times now but I am very much looking forward to Valencia,“ was a suggestion of positive testing results by Adam Lacko. “Valencia will be our first comparison to our competitors this season, and they did not take any winter sleep either.“
Satisfaction was expressed not only by Adam but also by the team manager Jan Kalivoda: “As we have already said on several occasions, the fact that MAN is leaving does not mean anything and we have worked hard over the whole winter to be prepared well. I am satisfied with the boys and their performance but the real comparison will only come in Valencia.“
“The main change in the technical rules is reduced weight stress of the front axle by a hundred kilograms, which considerably affects the driving style. We also had to adapt chassis setting to this, but we have managed all,“ said David Vršecký, who in addition helped Jiří Forman switch from go-cart to the monstrous truck. “I have been somewhat quicker than in autumn again. Now the improvement will slow down a little but the most important thing is that it continues and my speed keeps increasing,“ said Forman.
The last testing session, accompanied with nearly summer weather, was also attended by handicapped members of the ARPIDA centre. Thus the Buggyra team again brought pleasure to those who need it most. “We would like to thank the whole team for their warm welcome approach. The boys enjoyed the whole trip very much, which was the purpose of the whole event, and now they have a lot to remember again,“ said Michal Grill in the name of the ARPIDA centre members.
