Truck racer's life is hard life. Just week after Most, race in Zolder is coming
The most demanding part of Goodyear FIA ETRC championship season is in full swing. Drivers of Buggyra ZM Racing team have to master four races in only five weeks. So just there was no room for rest after Most, because sneaky Zolder is approaching this weekend.
Circuit known also from F1 calendar in past, is traditional venue for truck races for many years. And also a place, where are often crashes during the start. „Zolder is every year a big challenge for us. It‘s a special track where is very hard to overtake. That’s why we have to work on better qualification pace,“ stated Buggyra‘s chief of communication Jan Kalivoda.
Adama Lacko is a good shape after successful racing weekend in Most, where he pleased Czech fans with two podium places. He cut his point loss to third Sascha Lenz. Adam has very nice memories of Zolder, last years he has won second cup race here.
„Two second places in Most were superb result, which I now want to follow up on at this weekend. Zolder is fast, technical and dangerous, that’s why a like it very much. Braking and acceleration will be very important, both are my favourite disciplines. Also a good start to the race will be important to achieve a good final results,“ explained 37-years-old driver.
His 16 years younger teammate Téo Calvet is also in a great mood after Most. He scored two wins in his main category, Promoter’s Cup, and is back in the lead.
„The goal is clear. I want to increase my lead to Jamie Anderson in Promoter’s Cup. I will do my best. It means especially good results in main races, where are more point to collect. Hopefully I can avoid damaging the truck. I've already lost a lot of points this year because of that. I want to bring my Buggyra to the finish without harm and defect,“ hopes young French driver.
