Phenomenal weekend: Mičánek's Huracáns ruled the track and the paddock in Brno

Two victories and one podium to go with them. The Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra team dominated the final event of the FIA CEZ zonal circuit championship at the Masaryk circuit, where it returned after a two-year break.


Phenomenal weekend: Mičánek's Huracáns ruled the track and the paddock in Brno

The Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra team has had a hectic weekend crowned with great results. The team, which competes in the prestigious Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe series during the season, fielded three cars and three drivers at the Masaryk Racing Days at the Brno racetrack. The best of them – Josef Záruba – dominated both sprint races. In Saturday's race, he even defeated the winner of the paper-faster GT3 class and won absolutely.


"What I appreciate most about this result is that we clearly showed where we belong. That even if we don't focus on this championship, we can be so dominant in it. It proves that we are a team whose professionalism, background, experience, and people are at least at European level," team manager Jiří Mičánek jr. evaluates the weekend at the Masaryk Circuit.


A dominant performance was shown by Josef Záruba, who started in the GTC class in the Division 4 race. He mastered his class supremely and on Saturday, even the faster GT3 class rivals were not good enough. Záruba returned behind the wheel of the team's Lamborghini Huracán after three months since his last start. And the bet on the proven pilot Jiří Mičánek paid off. "I'm glad that I got the chance to return to Huracán and that Jirka Mičánek was satisfied. The team prepared a great car for me, and I must thank you for that. I enjoyed the races incredibly. Also thanks to the atmosphere and all the people who came to see us because we were racing at home," Záruba evaluated the weekend.


"Pepa has exactly fulfilled the expectations we had of him. He was able to deliver the car in first place in the class, and Saturday's absolute victory was a very pleasant bonus for us," praised his driver Mičánek. In Saturday's first race, Záruba beat the nearest rival in his class and the fastest GT3 driver by almost seven seconds. On the other hand, on Sunday, until the end of the race, he was behind the fastest GT3 car piloted by Libor Milota. He crossed the finish line with a loss of four tenths to his rival in a car that is a class higher. And the second fastest car in the GTC class – the Lamborghini Huracán piloted by Dennis Waszko, was almost half a minute behind Záruba.


Kurt Wagner and Libor Dvořáček then started the Saturday early evening endurance race. The well-matched crew, which also competes in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe in the same format, won another cup for the team – this time for third place.


Jiří Mičánek admits that the Brno weekend was the most demanding of the season for him. "Honestly, setting up and successfully bringing three cars to the finish line is a really big deal. It means having enough quality people so that every car is looked after by a completely professional team. I am even happier that we managed to do it and I want to thank all the guys for that. We basically all hit rock bottom, but the result was worth it. At the same time, I take it as a great experience and a test of the limits we have," states Mičánek, adding that the most difficult were Thursday's tests, in which the team tuned three "raw" cars.


In addition to his racing duties, the team boss devoted a lot of time to the guests. "We didn't get to Brno for the last two years because of a collision with the Super Trofeo Europe calendar. So we took this weekend as our domestic after a long time. Hundreds of partners and friends came to see us. And I am glad that we showed them that we are not only the best in terms of racing, but also that the entire team, its functioning, and presentation are at a higher level than the standards for Central European racing," added Jiří Mičánek.


Among the guests was the reigning winner of the prestigious Top Model of the World competition, Natálie Kočendová, who drove down the runway in the ultimate Mercedes SL63 AMG convertible in the passenger seat.
