Comments from the Top 3 drivers
Petr Fulín – Audi RS3 LMS TCR 2021 (Aditis Racing) – 1st place
The start of the race was pretty close between us, but I managed to keep the lead after the first chicane. I began to drive fast in the first five or six laps to create a gap, and then I just controlled the gap behind me. But I have to say, Čížek and Homola had a very good pace, and I had to concentrate throughout the whole race. Now it’s time to celebrate and then think about the strategy as we are starting from seventh for tomorrow’s race.
Petr Čížek – Cupra Leon Competitión (Expres Auto Racing) – 2nd place
The start was absolutely great. I was even in first for a short time, but I was on the outside, so I chose to play it safe and didn’t try to overdone it. After that, I stayed behind Fulín for as long as possible to create a gap behind me, and it worked. Then it was all about taking care of the car and finishing the race in second place. Now I can say that the rest of the season looks brighter…
Maťo Homola – Hyundai Elantra N TCR (Hyundai Janík Motorsport) – 3rd place
I made a good start, which is a nice feeling, as I’ve had some bad starts during this year. I managed to pass René Kircher, which was very important, and then Davit Kajaia made a mistake, making my race easier because it’s difficult to pass at this circuit. My pace was at the maximum with the 40-kilogram weight ballast, but I’m very happy. The most important thing is the championship, and I tried not to make any mistakes and bring the car home.
