Klemen Trček is returning to the scene of his last race in Lučine, which he took with the Zastava Yugo race car, before a long break from racing. This time he will attack the highest places behind the wheel of the MG ZR 105, on which he was seduced by the chassis in the last race in Gorjanci. He used the almost two-month break to gather energy to perform in front of the home spectators, and to rebuild the chassis, which he hopes will be able to reach the highest places in the otherwise strong Division 1 at the race in Lučine, where he will also act as organizer. after an almost two-month break, I’m going back behind the wheel of my yellow MG, ”he said. "Due to problems with the chassis in Gorjanci, we are coming to the home race in Lučine with a renewed chassis and with the goal of getting the track from Todr as fast as possible without technical problems.
Vaclav Janik and Federico Liber staged an excellent duel for many spectators in Lučine for a joint victory, while improving the record of the route from Todraž to Lučine three times. In the first run, a new record was set by Liber, who stopped the stopwatches at 2: 01.90. Janik was 0.8 seconds behind his time, and in the second run it was even closer between them, except that Janik set the fastest time. The Czech was seven hundredths of a second better than Liber's time, and the Italian drove half a second slower this time. In the decisive third run, the moody Janik drove even faster and set the measuring bar for 2: 01.30 for next season. His average speed was almost 119km / h, but because Liber drove 0.8 seconds slower this time, Janik celebrated the overall victory with a 0.53 second advantage
There are 80 drivers on tomorrow's race starting list. If in the first run the drivers flirted even more shyly with the track, in the second they were more confident and achieved faster results, and in the third the Swiss Ronnie Bratschi surpassed himself again, breaking his own (last year's) track record between touring vehicles. In the absolute competition, we will obviously see a fierce battle for victory between the Czech Vaclav Janik and the Italian Federico Liber tomorrow. Among the Slovenes, Vladimir Stankovič proved to be the best in the first and second training sessions, but resigned in the third. The hero of today's training is the Swiss Ronnie Bratschi, who already managed to break his (last year's set) track record. Last year he crossed the track with a time of 2: 13.55, and this year a few tenths faster, as he finished at the finish

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

Thus, behind us is this year's mountain speed race Lučine, where we had a lot of fun, as always, despite some mild sunburns. It is difficult to single out only one racer who impressed the most, as they all performed with passion, joy and for their own pleasure, as well as the pleasure of the spectators, risking their health, which reminded us of Primož's overturning after last year's Slavko Zorman accident in Ilirska Bistrica. Tavčar, a (fairly) new dad, at the exit of the ninth bend, which fortunately ended only with rolled sheet metal. You may have noticed stickers of your and our portal svet-hitrosti.com on some racing cars, for which I have to thank Aleš Žakl (Yugo 45), Janez Bogataj (Renault Clio) and Igor Pokorn (VW Polo 75), who kindly resigned advertising space where it would otherwise

The third was the Montenegrin Jovan Aćimič, almost 12 seconds behind Janik. Matevž Boh won the Slovenian national championship with a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX. Second-placed Peter Marc was almost 24 seconds behind him with the same car. Aleš Prek, who competed with the Honda Civic this year, was third, another second behind Marco.

Italian Federico Liber set the fastest time in training before the Lučina mountain speed race. With a total time of 2: 07.65, he was more than a second and a half faster than the first pursuer, Vaclav Janik. The third fastest was Tiziano Riva, who was 0.14 seconds behind. The first training run 'eliminated' only Pogačar (VW Golf MK1), who was already able to attend the second. After everything went almost smoothly, the third run served up with two longer breaks. Jure Jan (Ford Focus ST) took care of the first one right after the start, after which they had to clean the track after the oil spill. Just before the end, Laszlo Szasz (Zytek Reynard F3000) turned around, who had to settle for resignation, but some drivers did not decide to start. In all three runs there is something less than
The organizers of the mountain speed race in Lučine have published a list of registered racers, which counts as many as 81 names, which is a very nice number considering the fact that the race will not be considered the Croatian national championship. Vaclav Janik (Lola B02 / 50) and Federico Liber (Gloria C8F) are considered the favorites on the technically demanding course. The former celebrated at this year's Gorjanci, and the latter celebrated victory at last year's race in Lučine, as his car, although quite underpowered in terms of power compared to other cars, proved to be solid. Among Slovenian racers, we will miss Marjan Smrdelj this year, but after last year's absence, Vladimir Stankovič (Radical SR 8 LM) is returning, who will probably occupy the highest ranking among Slovenes. The real eye-catcher will definitely be the Bulgarian Nikolaj Zlatkov with the legendary Aud
