After the first two rounds of the season, Dušan Borković leads the championship with a maximum amount of 100 points. And he can become a champion already in the next round.
The TCR Eastern Europe series has had its first four races of the season and they all had something in common – the same winner. Dušan Borković from the M1RA team has managed to win both races at Grobnik and then also both races at Slovakia Ring.
The Serbian driver, who is also a former European Touring Car champion and also raced in WTCC, has a maximum amount of 100 points. His nearest rival is 54 points behind, he has only 46 points. And that means we might be close to crowning a new champion. All he needs to do now is to lead the championship by more than 50 points after the next two races at Brno and he can become a 2020 champion.
Right now, there are still 100 points in the game and every driver on the grid still has a mathematical chance. And Borković’s rivals will not just give up and they will do anything they can to stop him.
One of those rivals is also Bence Boldizs. The Hungarian driver, who is racing for Zengő Motorsport and is preparing for the upcoming WTCR season in this series, started the season with 4th and 5th place finishes at Grobnik, but then he improved massively in Slovakia. While he crossed the finish line only in 7th place on Saturday, on Sunday he took his first podium finish of the season with 2nd place. He is now 2nd in the championship standings with 46 points.
It is also important to keep Milovan Vesnič in mind. The reigning champion missed the event at Slovakia Ring, which cost him one place in the championship, and he is now in 3rd place overall. He has 36 points after the opening round of the season at Grobnik, Croatia, where he finished 2nd in both races, always behind Borković. Vesnič is expected to return at Brno and he definitely will not be an easy one to beat.
Jáchym Galáš now holds 4th place with 32 points and the GT2 Motorsport driver can definitely regret the disqualification from Sunday’s race at Slovakia Ring, where he originally finished in 2nd position. If it was not for that, he would have been 2nd in the standings as well.
After missing the Slovakia Ring, Maťo Konopka has dropped to 5th place and he has 30 points. He is followed by Sandro Soubek (30 points), Dušan Kouřil jr. (26 points), Michal Makeš (22 points), Igor Stefanovski (16 points) and Szymon Jablonski (12 points).
