Performance meeting the most demanding criteria was shown today by David Vršecký in the full score cup race! Last year ´s European Champion managed a sovereign victory, thus increasing his advantage over the second Albacete to eight points.
As was shown today, David ´s yesterday ´s words on the treacherous nature of the first curve were not meant as an alibi in case of potential failure. While the Roudnice trucker managed to turn yesterday ´s pole position into victory Albacete had to cope with the second ranking today after the victory in the time practice. To defend Albacete it needs to be added that Vršecký performed a dream start, entering the first curve disturbed by nobody. “We carefully worked out the starts over the week. I do not think Antonio made a downright mistake, our strategy was simply more effective,” laughed Vršecký after the race. The Spanish trucker obviously was not ready to accept the not very favourable development and literally stuck to the rear bumpers of our trucker. While yesterday David ´s precise defensive strategy proved to be successful, today our trucker played with his rival a cat-and-mouse game. "I am not sure how tactical it is to say this but my truck worked so well that I doubted the function of my speed limiter," explained Vršecký, at the same time apologising to the public. "I know that the audiences love thrilling duels, but this time I decided to let my horses fly and leave Antonio alone." Markus Bösiger had a considerably more complicated start. While fighting with Levett, he and his rival were both overtaken by Hahn, from the fifth starting position after the time practice. Markus eventually ranked fourth.
