VIDEO: New car specifications and new colours as Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra is arming for 2022 season
The Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra team will start its 2022 with new vehicles. Well tested Lamborghini Huracáns are going to receive a new factory update – a package EVO 2. The team is going to introduce its new cars in a Super Trofeo Europe series, but also in the Czech Republic – on circuits, in hill climbing and in exhibitions as well.
The Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra team is the first one in Central and Eastern Europe to receive such an update for the fastest Cup car in the world. There is a significant update to brakes as well, and casual fans are going to notice especially a new shape and design of front and rear lights,” said Mičánek Motorsport by Buggyra team manager Jiří Mičánek jr.
And the cars are also going to feature new liveries, but still in traditional Czech colours. The whole carbon hood, which was revealed in special photos taken on the Brno circuit, is now in black and red colours, but that design will apply only for pre-season testing.
“For the season, the car is going to feature a traditional Czech tricolour. But just like every year, it’ll be slightly modified and modernized,” confirmed Jiří Mičánek.
However, the biggest changes will be in competitiveness. While all the teams are expected to switch to EVO 2, the Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra is going to have an advantage by being one of the first ones. “We expect a noticeable improvement in aerodynamics, and we also expect a lot from a better heat management at the rear of the car, where there was a lot of hot air from the engine and the brakes,” shared Mičánek his expectations.
The first testing is planned for mid-February at Misano. The very same circuit, where the team took its final podium of the 2021 season in the Pro-AM category. And it was also the final outing with the EVO specification. “That means we’re going to have a direct comparison between both cars. We’ll see, how big the improvement is going to be. Anyway, we definitely aim to do more testing before the season begins, so our drivers, mechanics and engineers are prepared for this year’s Super Trofeo Europe series. And we can continue delivering such good results as last year when we finished in 3rd place in our category,” finishes Jiří Mičánek.
Once again, the Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra team will enter two vehicles to compete in one of the most prestigious and most competitive Cup championships. Meanwhile, the third car is planned to take part in Czech and Central European events, like the FIA Central European Zone series, hill climbing Maverick Hillclimb series, or some popular exhibitions like Supermoto at Hrušovany nad Jevišovkou.
The Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe championship starts with two races on April 2nd and 3rd at Imola, Italy.
