VIDEO: Slovakia brought trophies and drama to Buggyra
The Buggyra Zero Mileage Racing team spent the last weekend at Slovakiaring, for the second round of the ESET Cup series season. And as the title suggest, it brought victories, but also excitement.
David Vršecký was not there just as a mentor for Koloc sisters, but he was also racing there with a Mercedes-AMG GT3. And on Saturday, he managed to grab 2nd place. “Despite Ayrton Senna said, that being second is to be the first of the ones who lose, I’m very happy with my 2nd place finish. I’m still getting used to the car, and I think it’s getting better and better,” said David, when he still had no idea that Aliyyah Koloc will prepare him a very exciting drama for the following day.
“The start was good, she got well in front. However, then there was a small touch and in the last corner, Aliyyah’s tyre gave up in 240 kph. It was the worst place for this to happen. Luckily, she remained calm, started to brake and she stopped just before the wall. But that’s racing. Hats off to her,” added David. “Such a shame, I was really looking forward to this race, but it ended too soon. I had a good start, but then I got a feeling that something’s wrong with the car and I hit the brakes. But there’s never enough experience,” said the fastest truck racing driver in the world.
Yasmeen Koloc then managed to win the Endurance race in her class. And on the following day, she remained unbeaten in the Women’s category. “It was noticeable that, unlike Aliyyah, it was Yasmeen’s second race here at Slovakiaring. She did very well on Sunday and had a good restart. She’s enjoying it and that’s what matters. She’s got a big potential just like Aliyyah, so let’s wait and see,” said David Vršecký. “When I saw my sister going towards the wall, I remembered my accident from last year, with an F4 car at Grobnik. Luckily, it ended quite well. As for me, I’m feeling good and if David was happy about my performance, then it had to be good,” added Yasmeen.
