After a long break of almost six months, the Championship of the Czech Republic finally started on the weekend of July 17-19, 2020 on the go-kart track in Cheb. A very large racing field met here.
The most interesting fights were expected in the KZ2 category where the factory driver of MS KART Racing Team Jakub Talaš started with number 4 in a very strong competition.
Jakub set the third time in Saturday’s time practice. In Sunday’s race he already reigned unrivaled in this “royal” category: after starting from the second row Jakub won the first and second final race and confirmed his unbeatable performance in the superfinal, which he won in the start-finish style and became the clear overall winner. Jakub drove fantastically and showed that it is in top form. A huge thank you goes to all the mechanics for the perfect preparation of the chassis and hard work throughout the race weekend. We also thank the Machač Motors team for the well-prepared TM engines.
Drivers on MS chassis in the ROK category also drove very well. His second race on MS KART was driven by a young Slovak driver Jose Andres Cordova Belduma with starting number 285. Andres was very fast which showed the P7 in time practice and P4 in the first final race. Andres was unlucky at the start of the second race when a driver in front of him fell asleep and Andres left at 12. But he drove well and finished in a nice P5. In the last superfinal race Andres started from position 5 and after the first turn he overtook to the third position. However, there was a collision, Andres flew off the track and lost a lot of time. He finished the race at 18.
Tomáš Filipenský (88) and Filip Nedoma (46) started in the ROK Junior class. Tom did well although he wasn’t very lucky in Cheb. In the first race he finished P5 after he was pulled out, in the second race Tom finished in a nice 2nd position. He finished 3rd in the Superfinal but fell to 5 due to a penalty.
Filip Nedoma from the Lamont Racing team also got used to the big go-kart very quickly and was able to torment his opponents, as evidenced by a nice 2nd time in time practice and the results of P3, P4 and P4 in the Superfinal.
