Buggyra will fight on three fronts this weekend
Young guns Aliyyah Koloc - Téo Calvet will battle it out for points and trophies in the French Truck Championship race at the previously unseen Albi circuit. David Vršecký, two-time European Truck Racing Champion, will join Yasmeen Koloc in the ESET Cup Series event in Brno. Michal Makeš will try to win the title for Mičánek motorsport powered by Buggyra in Brno in the TCR Eastern Europe championship, while the team will take part in the next round of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe at the Nürburgring in Germany with drivers Libor Dvořáček, Bronislav Formánek and Josef Záruba.
Téo Calvet firmly hopes to bring his form from the European Truck Championship race in Most back to his homeland. He scored twenty-five points in the strongest possible competition in the north of Bohemia, taking the scalp of six-time champion Jochen Hahn and moving up to a superb seventh place, just three points behind fifth place. "Every race is different, of course, but I'm certainly not going to stick my head in the sand in front of the favourite," says the youngest ever championship leader. "It's a very interesting circuit, I won't mind at all if I repeat the result from Nogaro, where I won twice and scored the same number of second places. Although winning everything would be even better, of course."
Aliyyah Koloc, third in the standings, hasn't hidden her ambitions either, having completed the task of finishing all races in Most. "I don't differentiate the races I start in, I try to make my dad and the whole team happy. Nobody really knows the circuit in Albi, but David told me to take it easy. We got our first double in Nogaro, and we can do it again in Albi. But I think it would be good if Téa and I switched the order this time," he says with a laugh.
We don't want to go back without the trophy
In Brno, Yasmeen Koloc will celebrate his racing debut with the Mercedes - AMG GT4 special, this after a single test at the Slovakiaring. "We don't consider it a risk, Yasmeen will do it," is convinced Martin Koloc. "It's a level higher racing than the Clio Cup, I believe we won't meet individuals who will chase their ego on a 17-year-old girl."
Yasmeen Koloc is looking forward to racing at the Masaryk Circuit. "The testing in Slovakia went well by all accounts, we had a few words with Aliyyah about the car. She said there is nothing to worry about. Last year I competed in Brno with Tomáš Enge and we finished second in the endurance race. We will try to improve with David, or at least repeat it."
"I believe it will be fine. We threw Yasmeen into the water during testing at Slovakiaring, she fought bravely with the Mercedes, it got better and better as time went on. The Masaryk circuit is not exactly easy, there is a lot of competition, but we plan not to return without the cup," added David Vršecký.
