VIDEO: Dvořáček and Wagner added two 3rd place finishes in Belgium, Makeš ended his season with 3rd position at Hungaroring
Last weekend, the legendary circuit at Spa-Francorchamps hosted the penultimate round of the current Lamborghini SuperTrofeo Europe season. And the Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra drivers Libor Dvořáček and Kurt Wagner did not miss it, as they race in the LB Cup category. But another important battle was happening at Hungaroring in Hungary, where a junior driver Michal Makeš fought for a championship position in the TCR Eastern Europe series.
The Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra drivers Libor Dvořáček and Kurt Wagner managed to take two 3rd place finishes at Spa-Francorchamps.
“Nobody knew what to expect at Spa this year. It used to be a big racing holiday, with more than 100,000 spectators around the track. This year, the number of fans was much smaller and there weren’t even that many cars on the grid. Yet, the organisers managed to put together a great weekend with a nice celebratory atmosphere, despite all the coronavirus restrictions,” said a team manager Jiří Mičánek jr. after returning from Belgium.
“Kurt and Libor found their rhythm in the LB Cup and after another good and consistent performance, they brought home more points and trophies for the 3rd place finishes. That’s a result we can be really happy about. Now, there’s a short break before the final round of the season at Paul Ricard, where we’ll be racing with a full line-up again,“ added Jiří Mičánek.
Michal Makeš ended his debut TCR Eastern Europe season with a beautiful battle for the 3rd position.
“At the beginning of the weekend, we were testing different setups because of the weather variations. While Saturday’s forecast promised just clouds, on Sunday, we were expecting a proper rain, which is something that Michal really likes. The first race was heavily affected by post-race penalties and while Michal crossed the finish line in the 6th place, he was later officially classified in the 8th position. However, he enjoyed Sunday’s wet race much more, where he fought nicely from 6th place on the grid and went on to finish on the podium, taking the 3rd place. It was a great show that lasted for several laps. This small victory proved to us that Michal does well in the rain and that next year, his competitors must be aware of him,” summarized Tomáš Mičánek, brother of Jiří Mičánek.
