Season finish in Jarama. Calvet will fight for the title, Lacko still believes in top 3
The last racing weekend of Goodyear FIA European Truck Championship is coming for drivers in Buggyra ZM Racing Team’s colours in Jarama. At Spain, Téo Calvet will fight for another big success in his career. After winning French national championship last year he is really close to clinch title in Promoter's Cup. Adam Lacko wants, at the track he has won 2017 European title, finish season full of highs and downs with the trophy for third place overall.
The world has returned to its order, so even truck championship is back to its normal „non covid“ final destination only a few kilometres north from Madrid. Buggyra has history of success in Jarama and teams want to write another fruitful chapter this weekend.
„This season was like a rollercoaster. Despite the struggle with luck and the sometimes unfair driving of our opponents, we still managed to be among the top of the racing field. Téo Calvet heading towards fulfilment his goal for this year – to win Promoter's Cup. Adam has just mathematically chance to get third place overall, but we will not stop the fight until the finish. Race in Jarama will be very special for Buggyr ZM Racing Team, but we won‘t tell more until Sunday,“ Jan Kalivoda, Buggyra's head of communications, said mysteriously.
Téo Calvet is on his way to another great success. 21-year-old pilot can add the crown of the king of the Promoter's Cup rating in FIA ETRC to the title of French champion, which he won last year. He came to Spain with 15 point lead ahead of Jamie Anderson from Great Britain.
„It will be really hard fight. Fifteen points lead can be deleted in a single racing day. On the track, I will give everything to fight for the win in the Promoter's Cup, but Jamie Anderson is tough opponent. Would by marvellous to repeat results from Le Mans, where I have won one race and was also once second,“ dreamed Téo while remembering the successful weekend on his home French track.
To be sure of the title, he needs to score at least 46 point during weekend, which he has already achieved in five of the seven race weekends so far. Then he will not have to look after the results of Anderson, who is the last of the challengers with a chance to seize first position.
Experienced Adam Lacko loves Jarama thanks to a lot of good memories. „A like track in Jarama. There is a lot of adrenaline. The part where you rush against the concrete wall is perfect and I still enjoy it. We've had a lot of bad luck this year, so it would be great to end the season with some great results,“ hopes driver with number 55.
