TCR Eastern Europe by ESET @ Grobnik- Winning in the rain for Galas and Vesnic

31.07.2019: Bad weather conditions affected the TCR Eastern Europe powered by ESET at Grobnik. The Race 1 started and ended behind the safety car, while Race 2 was red-flagged. Victories went to Jáchym Galáš and Milovan V



Bad weather conditions affected the TCR Eastern Europe powered by ESET at Grobnik. The Race 1 started and ended behind the safety car, while Race 2 was red-flagged.



Victories went to Jáchym Galáš and Milovan Vesnič who are now second and first in the standings, split by 15 points.


In Race 1, pole sitter Galáš took the lead ahead of Vesnič; Petr Cižek cruised in third position until lap 9, when he was passed by Dušan Kouřil who was recovering after starting from the back of the grid; he had been fourth fastest in Qualifying but was then penalised for underweight.



Two laps before the end a blown tyre stopped Vesnič’s attempt to chase Galáš; at the same time a downpour flooded the track and the race finished behind the safety car with Kouřil and Cižek completing the podium behind Galáš.


Vesnič took the lead at the start of Race 2, from Galáš who made a mistake and dropped to fourth; however, in a couple of laps he retook the second position, while Kouřil moved into third. In the late stages, Galáš and Kouřil began fighting for the second place, but on lap 14 the race was red-flagged because of the pouring rain.



The next event of the series will be at the Slovakia Ring on August 24th and 25th.





Race 1


1. J. Galáš (GT2 Motorsp., Volkswagen Golf GTI), 13 laps
2. D. Kouřil (K2 Engineering, Hyundai i30 N), 1.099
3. P. Čižek (Fullinrace Academy, CUPRA), 3.165



Race 2


1. M. Vesnič (ASK Vesnić, CUPRA), 13 laps
2. J. Galáš (GT2 Motorsp., Volkswagen Golf GTI), 7.729
3. D. Kouřil (K2 Engine ACCR, Hyundai i30 N), 7.889



Championship points


1. Vesnič 78 pts; 2. Galász 63; 3. Čížek 54
