Praga R1at the first race of FIA–CEZ
Praga team drivers ventured to visit a circuit near Budapest which is a popular choice of F1 drivers. Racers Ales Jirasek and Tomas Vojtech went there to test the atmospheric version of Praga R1. Although this is a wildly fast track, the drivers were able to compete with three times stronger vehicles GT3 and GT2 categories. Praga R1 was even the fastest vehicle in the parts of the circuit focused on the driving technique.
Ales Jirasek managed to finish 3rd during the Saturday sprint in the general classification. Unfortunately, team strategy didn’t work out during Saturday race and Vojtech and Jirasek finished on the (still decent) sixth place in the general classification and on the first in its own category.
