VIDEO: While Mičánek Motorsport powered by Buggyra team did not score any points at Nürburgring, Makeš had his best result this season at Brno.
The Lamborghini SuperTrofeo 2020 championship continued with Round 2 of the season, which took place at the legendary Nürburgring and offered another two races in 2020.
While Jiří Mičánek jr.’s drivers were heading to Germany in a very good mood and excited for the fastest Cup series in Europe, the weekend did not go as planned. “I’m not sure what to say. We had it all in our hands. We tested, the cars were perfectly ready, and the drivers had experience from last year. Yet, it was a weekend to forget,“ said Jiří Mičánek jr.
“The Amateur crew with Kurt Wagner and Libor Dvořáček had a podium finish in their grasp. But then, just before the pitstop window had opened, Kurt got a rear left puncture. Unfortunately, it really took place way too early and Kurt then had to go into the pits one more time. Then he also underestimated cold tyres and got a spin when entering Turn 1. The car then crashed into the wall and badly damaged the front. And as our programme in Germany was only for one day, we didn’t manage to fix the car during the 4-hour break. Only to pack up and get ready to go home to Brno,” he added.
“Then our fast guys, Jakub Knoll and Bronislav Formánek suffered from errors during driver changes. It was like a bad movie! In both cases, our drivers headed into the pits from 3rd place in their class. However, both then made mistakes that cost them at least 20 seconds. Due to that, they only finished at the bottom of TOP 20 and they haven’t scored any points,” continued Mičánek.
However, it was a much better race for a junior Michal Makeš in Brno. The Czech driver was racing in the TCR Eastern Europe series with a Cupra. “Michal perfectly used his knowledge of the home track, and he was in the TOP 5 since the first practice session. And in the race as well. Michal finished 5th in the first race of the weekend, and then he added 12 more points for 4th position in the second race. Michal also was the best Czech driver of the whole race weekend and he is now in a perfect spot to fight for the 3rd place overall,” said Jiří Mičánek.
