On the 26th of November, the 2nd round of the Mibosport Cup was held in the small village of Hrotovice, Czech Republic. More than 200 entries gathered for this big event that offers racing in many different classes, for both on-road and off-road. In the touring car modified class, the early pace was set by the young XRAY team driver Marek Cerny, who put his T4’17 at the top of the time sheets in the seeding rounds. Eventually, I managed to find the pace for qualifying, which meant that I would TQ all 3 rounds and secure the overall TQ spot in front of my team mate. The fast Finnish driver Viljami Kutvonen would line up 3rd.

I converted the TQ into a win after winning all 3 finals. I was closely challenged by Marek and Viljami in the finals. In the end, I was happy with the handling of my T4’17 car all throughout the race. It was a good opportunity to test setup things as well for the upcoming ETS next weekend.
