Three new Huracáns at the start in Brno. Jiřího Mičánek’s team awaits hectic premiere
For the firts time tem Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra will start with three Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2. Masaryk Circuit in Brno will witness the premiere during Masaryk Racing Days. This meeting will close circuit season in Central Europe.
„We've had a busy week and a busy weekend ahead,“ told with a smile Jiří Mičánek jr., Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra team manager. There were plenty days of difficult preparations before start of all three car at Brno circuit.
Two of the cars team got from Lamborghini’s factory in Sant´ Agata Bolognese just only a few days before. „In last two races of Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe we lost two cars and we had to change the engine in the third one. So we will have really three new cars at the start. The last one we got on Tuesday at 10 o’clock, one day took stickers in team colours day and one day we had to do car set up to be on Thursday on track,“ explained Jiří Mičánek.
All three cars will start in both sprints, one of them will race at Saturday’s one hour endurance. „Sprint start we agreed with Pepa Záruba, who should race to win in his category. Kurt Wagner completed the race at Hungaroring this spring at podium. So he should fight for top positions this weekend. Libor Dvořáček will be third driver,“ Jiří Mičánek reveals team members. Wagner and Dvořáček, who are teammates in the same racing format in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo, will go into the endurance race.
Josef Záruba will return behind the wheel of Huracán after three month brake, when he became father. „It’s home race. I have nice memories from Brno, where I won the title. So I am very glad to agree with Jirka to race for the team,“ stated Záruba. He’s also happy for weather forecast. „I know fans will not like rain, but they can enjoy more interesting races. For me it’s good news, I love to race Huracán on wet track.“
Záruba added he wants to win in GTC class, when he will meet team partners with Huracáns, Dennis Waszek with another Lamborghini and fleet of Porsches.
Even for such a professional team like Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra are three cars on the grid logistical challenge. „It’s hard for coordination and personal. But it’s our home race. We have an advantage, that we do not have to test somewhere and we have our shop just close to paddock. I believe we won’t have critical issues a we will enjoy the weekend at 100 percent,“ hopes team boss.
Also because he will meet a lot of team partners and friends in Brno. „We had bad luck for home races, they were usually raced at the same time as our priority races. I am very glad it will work this year a we will meet all the people.“
That’s why Jiří Mičanek won’t race even he drove at Hungaroring this spring and won GTC class with Bronislav Formánek and they took overall second position.
With Masaryk Racing Days the season on the Masaryk circuit will reach a pinnacle, too. Beside zone championship FIA CEZ fan will see series BOSS GP, where single seaters F1 and GP2 will race.
