A great week-end in Most!
The sixth Grand Prix of the European Truck Racing Championship was held this weekend on the Most circuit in the Czech Republic. The primarily Czech was racing “at home” since its base is just a few kilometres from the track. Whilst the Renault Trucks-MKR Technology team could hardly respect the basic rules of hospitality as hosts, they certainly respected the rules of competition and thrilled their local supporters by taking two victories in a double with Markus Bosiger first and Markus Oestreich second. With this very good result, Renault Trucks-MKR Technology has shored up its second place in the team championship just eleven points behind the leader.
With three races left, it’s not over yet! In the driver rankings, Markus Bosiger is still 3rd but just six points from the 2nd placed driver and Markus Oestreich has climbed to 4th place with this weekend’s performance.
In highly changeable weather conditions, with the rain coming down in mid-race, we witnessed two big turnarounds, some very competitive race situations and a number of brushes between those involved. With no technical incident disrupting the battle, the two “Markuses” were in the top spots over the two days, both in tests and warm-ups.
