Buggyra to start circuit racing season at Hungaroring
This weekend marks the opening round of the ESET Cup Series at the famous single-seaters circuit. The Buggyra Zero Mileage Racing is sending two cars to Hungaroring. While David Vršecký and Aliyyah Koloc will be fighting for the glory with a Mercedes-AMG GT3, Yasmeen Koloc and Téo Calvet are going to drive with a Renault Clio.
t comes right after challenging testing of the Can-Am DV21 special in Dubai, where both sisters took part. “The girls are having a busy schedule, but as far as I know, they’re both excited about racing,” confirmed David Vršecký, who was evaluating both girls in Dubai. “There’s something about switching between circuits and desert, so we’re going to Hungaroring to get a good result.”
And the youngest and fastest trucker in history shares the same opinion. “We really enjoyed lots of desert and sand with a Can-Am, but it’s time for a change. The circuit racing is something different, every type of racing has its own magic,” said Aliyyah.
The more, the better
According to Martin Koloc, the team owner and Aliyyah’s and Yasmeen’s father, it will be useful for both girls to get as many kilometres as possible. “That’s why Aliyyah will use run in the truck racing championship and with Yasmeen, they will be rotating in racing the Mercedes-AMG GT4,” confirmed Martin that it is a well-thought strategy.
Right after the Hungaroring, the team will take its Mercedes-AMG GT3 to China. “Once China is open, Aliyyah will take part in the China GT championship. She’s also a member of the AMG Motorsport junior programme. I spoke to David about whether there’s a risk that she might lose motivation due to the busy schedule, but we’ve agreed that there’s still some room. She’s got a great last year behind her and all the current position she’s in, she fought hard for it and it would be difficult to gain it again,” said Martin Koloc. “All the results so far show that she’s got a potential to improve and if it’s necessary, we can slow down. Both girls and Téo Calvet still have the best ahead of them, so there’s no reason to rush it.”
Aliyyah and David will not be racing alone at Hungaroring, they will be joined by Yasmeen Koloc and Téo Calvet. The young guns are going to drive with a Renault Clio. Yasmeen will be taking on the role of the defending endurance champion, and she does not see a single reason to feel pressure. “Something has been going on around us since the beginning of the year. I’m just going to change a Can-Am for a Clio, so I believe in a good result.” And Téo sees it in the same way: “Trucks are still the most important, but when we had the opportunity to race at Hungaroring, we decided to take it. It’s going to be fine.”
