While the world is still struggling with the COVID pandemic and all the restrictions, the TCR Eastern Europe series has not been stopped yet and the championship is preparing for the final round of its season at Hungaroring, Hungary.
The championship has already been decided. Dušan Borković clinched the title in Brno on the first weekend in September. The M1RA driver has won all six races so far, but he has no intention to stop now. And he is ready to keep his 100% success even in the final race of the 2020 season.
However, the Serbian driver cannot expect an easy weekend. He is going to face several of hungry drivers who aim to finally stop his domination. Like a 2019 champion and a winner of one of last year’s races at Hungaroring – Milovan Vesnić, who also holds 2nd place in the standings, or Sandro Soubek. The Austrian rookie is third in the standings.
But there is also Jáchym Galáš, who proved himself at Hungaroring last year when he finished on the podium. The GT2 Motorsport driver is fourth in the overall standings and he is still the serious contender for the overall 2nd place.
And then there are also Michal Makeš or Szymon Jablonski, both have shown an improvement over the past few races. Also, there is a very tight battle in the Junior championship between leading Galáš (48 points) and Makeš (44 points) with Jablonski (42 points). Without any doubts, we can expect a thrilling championship battle.
Also, Tomáš Pekař is going to race in the final round of the season with a Cupra Leon TCR car of his own Carpek Racing team. A multiple Renault Clio Cup champion is fully capable of being in front with the TCR car as he proved at Red Bull Ring last year, where he won one of the races.
Apart from Tomáš Pekař, there is another new name on the grid. Tomáš Korený is set to race for the ACCR Czech Talent Team with a Hyundai i30 N TCR. In the past, he raced in several Cup series and even in the FIA ETCC championship.
