From 19 to 21 June, the Gorjanci mountain speed race will be on the agenda again. On the 4,3 km long course, the competitors will compete in the Slovenian and Austrian championships, and the race will also be considered the European Championship of vintage cars, the European Mountain Speed Cup. The listed competitions are a guarantee for a great race, worth watching. This year's national championship in mountain speed racing traditionally started in neighboring Verzegnis, where last year's success was repeated by the current national champion Matevž Boh (Mitsubishi Lancer EVO IX), who is coming to Gorjanci as the leader in the Slovenian national championship, in second and third place. Peter Marc (Mitsubishi Lancer EVO IX) and Denis Žbogar (Renault Clio R3) finished the race in the vicinity of Udine. The race was missed by multiple national champions Milan Bubnič
Italian Simone Faggioli won the first run of the mountain speed race in Buzet. With a time of 2: 11.661, he overtook second-placed Czech Miloš Beneš by almost 7 seconds, and Fausto Bormolini, the third fastest, was still 1.8 seconds slower. The best Slovenian, Marjan Smrdelj, was sixth fastest among many formulas and prototypes, and he ran a little less than 17 seconds slower than Faggioli. In the Slovenian national championship, it smells again of the easy victory of Matevž Boh (Mitsubishi Lancer EVO IX). You can see all the times of the first run at this link: -link
The Czech Miloš Beneš is the surprising winner of this year's mountain speed race in Buzet. With a time of 2: 17.562, he was faster than his compatriot Otokar Kramski, and the third was Slovenian Patrik Zajelšnik. The favorite to win, Swiss Julien Ducommun did not reach the finish line due to a technical malfunction. His race car went out soon after the start of the second run, and so Ducommun was left without a win, which smiled on him after the fastest time of the first run. Both races were marked by numerous resignations and interruptions. The last one, which started at 13:30 p.m., did not end until after XNUMX p.m. The Slovenian national championship in mountain speed racing also ended with the race in Buzet. After the resignation of Rado Raspet and Milan Bubnič, Aleš Prek easily won a new victory and secured this year's title of national champion.
