At the end of the week, this year's national rally championship starts in Velenje, where Aljoša Novak and his co-driver Matej Čar are among the most serious candidates for the top spot. The basic task of the season will be to finish the races, and the silent wish remains the first victory in the overall standings. This year, Aljoša Novak and Matej Čar have already had several excellent rallies on macadam in Italy, where they have already driven a Mitsubishi Lancer EVO9 from the workshop of national champion Darko Peljhan. Aljoša does not expect any major problems at the start of the national championship, when he will have to get used to the asphalt. Namely, it is more demanding to move in the opposite direction, ie from asphalt to macadam. "Last year we had a lot of luck, so I would like to finish the races this year. Last year, Matej and I started with the best time on the first speed p.
After a great start to the mission, a performance in the Opel Adam International Cup, which takes place at German rallies, the Tim Novak-Uroš Ocvirk crew unfortunately resigned at the Sulingen Rally. On the seventh speed test (out of 13 planned), they 'cut' the bend too much, as it is called in the jargon, and hit the stone so hard with the bike that they damaged the front chassis. "We didn't find the right rhythm at the beginning of the rally, even though we tried. Probably too much. We drove the last Friday speed test without additional headlights, which was a mistake. In the pits, we assumed we wouldn’t need them, but then, due to a co-driver’s accident, the start was postponed for 25 minutes, and by then it was already getting dark. In the same speed test, I also drove into a larger hole that damaged the power steering
At this year's second rally for the German Opel Adam Cup, our crew Tim Novak-Uroš Ocvirk won an excellent fifth place, which is a good result, considering that there were as many as 2016 Adam Cup winners at the start of the ADAC Hessen Rally Vogelsberg 17! With this success, however, our trump cards are still second in the overall cup standings. In fact, the Slovenian representatives were even better, as the second-placed Niki Schelle was only a guest in this race, so they got points for fourth place. "It was a difficult race, it rained heavily on Saturday's first speed trials, so there was also the danger of a trip off the road or even a raft of a car. It dried up in the afternoon, but there was still a lot of mud and some macadam, ”said Tim Novak at the finish line of the Hessen Vogelsberg rally. “I won’t be a river
Tim Novak-Uroš Ocvirk will compete with the Ford Fiesta R2 in the Fiesta DMACK Trophy at the German Rally World Championship! Before that, they will list the rallies in Poland to gain the necessary experience. Now it is certain that the Gorenjska-Notranjska duo is going to the rally for the World Championship, where they will compete in the Ford Fiesta DMACK Trophy, which is considered a hotbed of young talent. Before participating in the asphalt German rally ADAC Rallye Deutschland, they will go to the 72nd Lotos Rally Poland to gain enough experience and meet the M-Sport team that takes care of the cup. “Now we can finally confirm that we will go to Germany for the WRC to compete in the Fiesta DMACK Trophy. With the help of the domestic company Krokar, AŠ2005 and other sponsors, we s
On the first and second of May, the third race of this year's Mitropa International Cup will take place in Opatija, Croatia, where our crew Tim Novak-Uroš Ocvirk with the Škoda Fabia R2 is currently the leader! That is why a lot is expected from our young crew. After two Austrian tours, a rather popular Croatian test is coming for Slovenian racers, which will be a good introduction to the next rally, the most famous Fuchs Saturnus Rally Velenje. But it is still a good month until our most prestigious rally, which is why the crew, together with the Idrija team IK Sport, is already thoroughly preparing for the 357-kilometer rally in the famous seaside resort. "First we will have testing on Wednesday, and then we will go to Croatian Istria, where we will drive almost 111 kilometers of fast and in bad weather also slippery speed tests," he told us.
