Mat’o Homola takes maiden season win in Brno

Slovakian driver Mat’o Homola took a dominant win at Brno, Czech Republic. The Homola Motorsport driver never left the lead from pole position, and there was little rivals Dusan Borkovic and home hero Petr Fulin could do.

Fulin made the most out of the start by jumping up to third from fourth, whereas Dejan Bulatovic dropped down to fifth, also letting Andreas Pfister through in the process.

From then on gaps started to build up, with Fulin trying an early attempt at keeping Borkovic in sight and the Serbian quick to respond and get some space between him and the local hero.

The action was further back, with TC2T leader Davit Kajaia making impressive progress and eventually claiming third outright, passing Single Make Trophy drivers Ronny Jost, Dejan Bulatovic and Andreas Pfister in the order from seventh, and more importantly overtaking home hero Fulin on the last lap.

TC2 winner Michal Matejovsky also helped the show by claiming seventh overall, ahead of Jost, Mladen Lalusic and TC2T driver Aytac Biter.

In the S1600 class, Miklas Mackshin’s lead was never under threat, whereas a good fight between Gilles Bruckner and Ulrike Krafft ended in the order, despite Krafft’s attempts to pass the rival.

Action resumes at 13.10 local time for the second and final race of the day, with Michal Matejovsky on pole position courtesy of the reversed grid.
