Two Huracáns to FIA CEZ as Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra heads to Hungaroring
To race and to gather important data that could help in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo series. That is the goal for the Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra team for the first round of this year’s FIA CEZ championship at Hungaroring.
The team is heading to Hungary with two cars. Kurt Wagner will drive in sprint races, as the German returns behind the wheel of a Huracán after a one-year break due to health issues. And Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe series regular Bronislav Formánek is going to enjoy the endurance race, together with the team manager Jiří Mičánek jr.
“On one side, Bronislav and I just want to enjoy the race weekend, as we know that we’re not going to participate in the full season, so we won’t be able to fight for the championship. On the other side, of course, we want to get the best result possible in our GTC category, which offers a very strong competition from the whole Central Europe region,” described Jiří Mičánek his plans, just a few days after dominating the opening round of the hill-climbing competition in the Czech Republic.
The opening round of the FIA CEZ series is also going to be the first real test for Kurt Wagner. The German driver already took part in pre-season testing, but this will be his first racing experience after a year. On Saturday and Sunday, he is going to race in 25-minute Sprint races.
Meanwhile, Bronislav Formánek returns to the FIA CEZ series after a year, as last season, he fully focused on the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe series, where he and Josef Záruba took 3rd place overall in the Pro-AM category. “Last year, I couldn’t take part at all, due to scheduling conflicts. The only race that I could have been at was when Jiří raced with Josef Záruba. So, I’m glad that it’s my turn this time and I can compare myself to the team boss,” laughs Formánek, who just last weekend took his first podium of the season in Super Trofeo with Záruba.
And the team is also going to focus on data gathering. “Thanks to the fact, that the race runs in the same format as Super Trofeo, we will get an opportunity to test more things in a full racing mode that we can utilise in the Super Trofeo, which remains our priority right now,” added Jiří Mičánek. “Also, we can use these races to do something, while we’re having a long break between the first two rounds of this year’s Super Trofeo season.”
