Return to Paul Ricard: Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra team wants to follow up on successful Autumn
To improve or at least match last year’s result. Those are the ambitions of the Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra team for the upcoming Round 2 of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo series at Paul Ricard. Last year, Bronislav Formánek and Josef Záruba finished in 3rd place on the French circuit.
This time, Záruba and Formánek will be highly motivated after struggles at Monza. While the pace was there, both races were hampered by difficult circumstances – like Formánek’s controversial drive-through penalty for leaving the track, or unlucky Safety Car in the second race. In the end, they finished in 4th and 5th places in their category, but they aim for better results.
“It’s been six weeks since the opening round of the season. In the meantime, we’ve done some testing in Brno in April and both drivers have practiced and trained on the simulators,” says the team manager Jiří Mičánek jr.
The Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra will be heading to Paul Ricard with only a single car for the prestigious Pro-AM category. “The other car is ready, but both drivers are still healing,” describes Jiří Mičánek the situation, as Kurt Wagner underwent knee surgery, while Libor Dvořáček is recovering following a sports injury. “We were preparing both cars until the last moment, and we have them both in France including the crew, but on Monday, we took a decision to skip one more race. Both drivers now have time to get 100% fit for the future races,” adds Mičánek.
The TCR division is working as well, Makeš tested at Most
The TCR division with a Cupra TCR car from the TCR Eastern Europe series spent last week at Most for testing. Last time, Michal Makeš took his first victory at Slovakiaring and he currently holds 2nd place in the championship standings. And he aims to continue in this form in Poznan in two weeks.
“Apart from Michal, we also tried another driver, who is currently in discussions about a drive for the next season,” hinted Jiří Mičánek jr.
