Levett with Buggyra This Year!
This morning the management of the Buggyra International Racing System team has published the name of the pilot who will defend Buggyra colours together with David Vršecký this season. The new acquisition of the team will be the English trucker Chris Levett.
Chris Levett´s first European truck racing championship season was 2007, when he ranked eighth in the overall ranking. Even though a year later he dropped one rank down, in the following two seasons he ranked fifth and sixth. In the words of the team manager Jan Kalivoda, Levett, who won cup races at the Nürburgring and in Le Mans last year, represents the optimum choice. “Buggyra enters this season with very big ambitions and so we needed a team pilot with a good background. Following very matter-of-fact and detailed discussions we have agreed on the contract, whose length we are not going to reveal right now,” said Honza adding that they have agreed on virtually every detail. “One of the aspects supporting Chris ´s selection was also his age. He is the youngest of the elite six with the greatest potential of performance growth.“
As further stated by the manager of Buggyra, the combination of Levett-Buggyra offers a large marketing potential. “After more than a decade one racing weekend will take place in England again. In addition the whole championship will open at Donington and Buggyra will be piloted by the most successful domestic trucker, which means we will be in the centre of media interest. The plans could not have been better.“
