European Truck Racing Championship to begin at Most
The championship will take place, but one thing only I know is that I know nothing – that is a way to describe this year’s European Truck Racing Championship. However, according to the latest information, the season should begin at the end of summer at Most with the final round taking place on November 15 at Misano.
And what about the other rounds of the biggest European championship for truckers? There will be a race at Zolder circuit on September 13, after which drivers will head to Jarama for the next race on September 27, followed by stops at Le Mans on October 4 and at Hungaroring on October 18. “Although we’ve lost some races, the organisers have done a brilliant job. We’ve lost only two races so far, which is, considering the situation, a big success. Of course, we welcome the start of the season at home turf at the Most circuit,” said team manager Jan Kalivoda.
According to the team’s number one Adam Lacko, the smaller number of races does not take away anything from the championship title’s value. “There are pros and cons to both. More races mean more opportunities to amend potential errors. Or every mistake counts more towards the overall standings. Let’s wait and see,” said Lacko.
The busiest Buggyra Racing driver will be without any doubts Téo Calvet, who also plans to participate in the national championship. That might cause issues especially during the race weekend at Le Mans, where the European Championship’s calender collides with French Championship. “I don’t think it could be a problem for me. I like to race. But I’ll definitely feel sorry for the mechanics,” said the young French driver.
Most should also see a debut of a 16-year-old Aliyyah Koloc, a talented Czech driver and a sister of Yasmeen. She is also a person of interest for the Czech race organiser and manager Antonín Charouz and most importantly of Ralf Schumacher’s Formula 4 team. “Considering that I don’t have any previous race experience; I don’t miss racing. I did a lot of testing at Most and it’s a perfect circuit for the first-ever race,” said Aliyyah.
