Buggyra will run seven series on two continents this year and is preparing a new logistics model
The Buggyra ZM Racing team is preparing for the circuit season after the Dakar Rally and Baja Jordan with the launch in Nogaro, where the team has a European base. "At the moment we have to sort out the logistics. There are Truck, NASCAR, GT, Lamborghini races and testing that can take place at the same time mainly during the weekends and beside all this still preparations for Dakar 2023," states team principal Martin Koloc.
FIA European Truckracing Championship (8 races)
Buggyra is entering proven pair of its drivers Adam Lacko - Téo Calvet, while Adam wants to attack the title as usual, Téo's goal is to finish in the top six. This position he lost due to the concurrence of the Le Mans championships when the team management preferred to win the French title. During the desert adventures, the development team at BTC has been working hard and will be testing until the end of May, when the first race at Misano will take place. "The championship will consist of eight races and we are also returning to the famous Nürburgring after two years. This biggest event in truck racing was first halted by covid and last year by devastating floods, so I believe that we and all the fans will finally get to see it this year," says head of communications Jan Kalivoda. "Le Mans will be also very attractive, where Téo will actually be making his first appearance as French champion." In addition to the sporting level, Martin Koloc also highlights the marketing potential. "It is the second most watched championship after F1 in Europe, with an average attendance of 400,000 spectators, the race coverage has an average annual reach of 95 million viewers, and social networks reach 190 million fans."
NASCAR Whelen Euro Series (8 races)
NASCAR's European series has been running since 2008. David Vršecký talks about racing and getting back to its roots. Aliyyah and Yasmeen Koloc will make their debut with 29 and 38 numbers. "I'm not able to set targets at the moment, we just got an offer that we couldn't refuse for a number of reasons. The annual reach of each the six races is nearly 300 million households, more is probably not worth adding. I agree with David that this is primarily a "man's" race, but the testing has shown that we are far from having to be all about numbers," says Martin Koloc.
Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe (7 races)
The European series will be held for the 12th time, with nearly four million fans watching the championship. "This is the fastest cup race in the world and after last year's third place in the PRO-AM class, we would like to improve on this great result this year with our new EVO 2 specials," reveals the plans for the prestigious series Jiří Mičánek, team manager of Mičánek motorsport powered by Buggyra.
GT Endurance Series (7 races)
These are the Craventic 24 Hours and 4 Hours Endurance Ultimate Cup endurance races. In the former, the 12 Hours at SPA and the 24 Hours Sebring will start Aliyyah and Yasmeen Koloc in the GT4 category. The second GT3 category will be driven by Aliyyah. "More or less what is true for NASCAR, these are prestigious races on famous circuits. Moreover, participation in these races will be in cooperation with a new strategic partner that we are going to introduce soon," explains Martin Koloc.
FIA Middle East Cup for Cross country Bajas (4 races)
The new FIA series consists of four events in Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Dubai. All the races are part of the prestigious FIA World Cup for Cross Country Bajas, and the starting field includes the stars of the Dakar Rally. Both Can-Am prototypes with the Koloc sisters will complete the entire event. "The last Baja Jordan showed that we have nothing to be modest about. Somewhat overshadowed by the adrenaline-pumping adventure of Yasmeen, Aliyyah took the first Buggyra triumph this year. The best possible preparation for the Dakar," says Martin Koloc.
TCR Eastern Europe (6 races)
Touring car racing offers an attractive format of twenty-five minute sprints. Alongside the truck-racing battles, another series in which the crash is much in view. The viewers can watch it by live stream.
