Vršecký´s Record Weekend!
David Vršecký received the silver in the final race of the sixth racing weekend of the European Race Truck Championship 2011. The only rival the double European champion could not manage on the Russian ground in the end was the sovereign leader of the interim ranking Jochen Hahn!
Pursuant to the team manager Honza Kalivoda the handicap race can be divided into two halves: “The first half, luckily very short, was characterized by two collisions, also affecting David, by an unlucky chance. In the other half he managed to rise up to a great performance and relatively soon he appeared behind the leading pair Lacko-Levett," described Honza the opening stages of the race. In the course of the third lap David continued to the second rank behind Lacko, and relatively at ease finished with the silver cup in hand and the record score of 38 points for the weekend. “The orders from the pits were clear - a cup and a score. I did not get so many points for a single weekend in the course of this and the past season so far. If my information is correct I lose mere nine points after the third Markus Östreich. If anybody had told me that after Misano, I would have though him crazy." Chris Levett was unlucky, unfortunately. He started well, but in the first curve he had to fight back the domestic, over-motivated Lvov. Adam Lacko took the leas, and Chris had to give up in the course of the third lap because of a servo failure.
