Téo on podium, points for Aliyyah!
The first-ever ETRC Digital Racing Challenge race took place on Sunday at Hungaroring. Buggyra Racing team sent three of its drivers to the opening round of the season – Adam Lacko, Téo Calvet and Aliyyah Koloc – and they did not return empty-handed.
While Norbert Kiss, the two-time European champion from 2014 and 2015, dominated both races, Téo Calvet was the best Buggyra Racing driver. In the first race, he finished in the 4th position, while in the following race, he took a great 2nd place, only behind the race winner. “If the race at Most went that way too, I’d be delighted with the result, but the competition is going to be much stronger. Anyway, it’s a positive step forward and it brings some excitement into this very unusual season, I’m enjoying it a lot,” said Téo after the race.
Just like him, also the 15-year-old Aliyyah Koloc had a good result and she would be delighted to do this well at Most. “I was 8th in the first race, which would be a success in a normal race, with a super pole and 3 points. And then also a start in the front row for the next race. The other race did not go so well, but that’s racing,” said the youngest truck racing driver in history.
Just like Téo and Aliyyah, also Adam Lacko had his first race of the season, but the spotlight was bigger on him as he is one of the biggest favourites for the championship victory. He finished 6th in the first race and did not finish the second race. “Unlike Téo and Aliyyah, I really hope that I’ll do much better at Most. Virtual racing isn’t exactly for me, but on the other hand, why not to show ourselves to our fans at least this way? Also, everybody knows that I like challenges.”
