Vršecký and Lacko on the Podium Again!
The nearly twilight race brought another podium for the Czech team, when the Misano result was closely repeated. David Vršecký won the race while Adam Lacko ranked third.
The second Saturday race was started by the first eight pilots in the opposite order to their cup race ranking. Vršecký thus started from the fourth starting position but already ranked first after the finish of the second lap. Then the Czech pilot managed to leave the rest of the starting field a little behind him.
Adam Lacko, however, struggled with the pilots starting in front of him. In the fifth lap he overtook Halmova, already ranking third. But the Buggyra pilot was followed by Jochen Hahn on new tyres and Vršecký was chased by the quick Kiss. Thus a dramatic end of the second Saturday race was staged. Both Buggyra pilots, however, used their extensive experience to manage this situation and finish the race with the right for the podium.
"Since the very first lap I had problems with cooling of the front left wheel, were the temperature ranged around 500 degrees Centigrade. Even though I appeared to be riding alone in the lead this was a hard test of the nerves. Eventually I was caught up with by Kiss and even the very last lap was still about a struggle. I improved my mood after the first race,“ said David with a smile.
"Another wonderful result. I managed to hold Hahn on his new tyres behind me and I am glad he did not do anything to rule us out. I would like to thank the whole team for their perfect work,“ added Adam after the race. This time again he climbed the podium twice, ranking first before Albacete in the Spanish championship.
Thanks to the rich score the team manager Jan Kalivoda received the cup for the winning team. Thus the Czech team ascended to the second overall rank with five point loss after the winning team.
