Lacko Wants to Win in Most, Forman Wants to Tease European Elite
The European Race Truck Championship has moved from Hungary straight to most in North Bohemia for the sixth racing weekend at the very beginning of September. Before the domestic racing stage Adam Lacko holds the second overall rank with a loss of 13 points after the leader of the interim ranking Jochen Hahn. To reduce the loss to zero is the aim of the pilot of the Buggyra Racing team for the coming weekend.
A week ago Adam Lacko headed for the Hungarian circuit called Hungaroring with one point advantage over the second ranking Jochen Hahn. Now, a week later, before the domestic portion of the truck racing series, he loses thirteen points after the German pilot. Despite that the Buggyra pilot is calm. “I must touch wood I have no reason to be worried. Although I greatly appreciate what all the people around racing do for me, I am old enough now to have other priorities in life. And I am sure that thanks to this very fact I am a better pilot too,” said Lacko, arming for the podium after the recent tests.
The team of Roudnice is after a double-focus weekend with two circuit truck racing days in Hungary and a stage of the world cup in cross-country racing in Poland at the same time. Just five days are left between this racing abroad and the domestic event of the year. The team manager Jan Kalivoda keeps his optimism even after the Hungaroring events. “The Hungarian weekend was no tragedy, only confirmation of how balanced this year´s championship is. Adam did not like Hungaroring last year either and rather improved his performance there this season. And we face Most where our fans will push us forward, and the loss of thirteen points is nothing that could not be averted, despite the equality of Adam and Jochen as racing pilots,” said Jan Kalivoda, the manager of Buggyra.
Jirka Forma has experienced the best racing weekend of the whole season so far. “It was an incredible battle. Start from the first row is always a big challenge. I only made two mistakes at Hungaroring and Janiec and Kiss made use of them. Despite that I ranked fourth, which I would like to repeat in Most. I know the domestic circuit and so I hope I will tease the European truck racing elite a little,” said Jirka.
