Makeš took first 10 points at Grobnik
Michal Makeš had a successful debut in the TCR Eastern Europe series last weekend. The Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra driver took his first 10 points after finishing in 7th and 8th positions.
The first two rounds of the season took place near a Croatian city Rijeka, which saw 18 drivers from all across Europe competing for the first time this season. The organisers have managed to also bring a star in Dušan Borkovič, in the very last minute. He has a vast experience from the biggest races like WTCR or ETCR. But there were also some other fast drivers like Milovan Vesnič, Igor Stefanovski or Maťo Homola.
“The TCR Eastern Europe series has managed to bring a lot of stars for its first event of the season. While most of the drivers have years of experience with TCR cars, it was a debut for Michal. We spoke before the weekend and said that there’s nothing to lose and we can only gain this weekend. And that is what’s happened in the end. Michal has gained a lot of experience at Grobnik, which he’s going to use in the remaining races of the season,” said the team manager Jiří Mičánek jr. about his driver.
“We’ve entered this season knowing that we want to learn. I don’t think that getting the first 10 points is not a bad start at all. Considering the competition, I was facing, I’m glad that I could race against the very best during my first race. We tried several setups during the weekend, and we’ve made big progress over those 3 days. I’d like to thank the whole team for their help, support and a perfect car,” said Michal Makeš.
Next, Michal Makeš and his competition will be racing at a popular Slovakia Ring. The Slovak event is scheduled from August 21 to August 23, giving the driver and the team enough time to prepare and analyse all the data.
