Fighting spirit high for ETCC’s Igor Stefanovski

Fighting spirit high for ETCC’s Igor Stefanovski

Saturday’s qualifying session of the FIA European Touring Car Cup Race of Most didn’t turn out as expected for title contender Igor Stefanovski.

Driving a SEAT Leon Cup Racer for his own Stefanovski Racing Team, things had looked more positive, before popular Macedonian eventually settled for fifth place.

Despite that, Stefanovski keeps his spirits high, ahead of Sunday’s two decisive races: “I must say we didn’t do anything wrong in the qualifying. We pushed hard and are very close to the leading drivers. I’m in a good position today and I can observe, as the race unfolds, what’s going on in front of me and react accordingly. What we did until now as a team – I’m happy with that. What we can get in the end could be a plus – a bonus – like a cherry on top. We don’t know about the weather, but in the end it’s the same for everybody. I still suffer hugely from back pain, inherited in Vila Real and it’s difficult to concentrate on driving like that. However, let’s see what we can do today!”

Before Sunday’s races get underway, Stefanovski trails Christjohannes Schreiber and Norbert Nagy by four points, nine down on leader Petr Fulín, with maximum of twenty points still for grabs.

Petr Fulín ensured he was crowned the 2017 FIA European Touring Car Cup winner with a comfortable home victory in the second encounter at ETCC Race of Most in the Czech Republic earlier today (Sunday).

ETCC trophy winner Petr Fulín, Plamen Kralev and Norbert Nagy attended the post-race press conference at FIA ETCC Race of Most. This is what they said.

Petr Fulín ensured he was crowned champion of the 2017 FIA European Touring Car Cup by scoring a comfortable home victory in the second encounter of the FIA ETCC Race of Most in the Czech Republic on Sunday.

Bulgarian Plamen Kralev scored his maiden victory in the FIA European Touring Car Cup by climbing from fourth on the grid to win the first encounter of the FIA ETCC Race of Most in the Czech Republic on Sunday morning.
