The FIA European Touring Car Cup will resume next week in Czech Republic, for the final race meeting that takes place on October 6 at Brno.

Both races will be live on Eurosport 1.

On his home racetrack Petr Fulín will be aiming for clinching the title of the Super 2000 class at the wheel of his BMW 320si.

 

The Krenek Motorsport driver leads the standings with a margin of only 8 points ahead of Slovak teen-ager Mat’o Homola who is also driving a BMW. Fulín and Homola have scored three race wins apiece, however, the Czech proved faster in qualifying having claimed pole positions in all the previous events.

None of the other drivers is still in contention for the title, although Serbia’s Dušan Borković with his Chevrolet Cruze and Fulín’s team-mate Michal Matějovský will be serious contenders for race victories.

German racer Kevin Krammes has already clinched the Super 1600 title in the previous event at Pergusa at the wheel of his Ravenol Team Ford Fiesta. His team-mate Ulrike Krafft, who won the second race in Sicily, becoming the first victorious woman in the European Cup,  will try to steal second place from Gilles Bruckner of Luxembourg. 

When 23 points are still at stake, the fight for the Single Make Trophy title is quite close with four drivers covered by only eleven points. Austria’s Mario Dablander is chased by 17-year old Spaniard Jordi Oriola, Nikolay Karamyshev of Russia and Frenchman Aurélien Comte who are lying seven, nine and eleven points adrift respectively. To make the fight even more balanced, the SEAT cars of all the four contenders will be laden by the maximum 50-kilos ballast.

The fight for the Ladies Trophy is restricted to Switzerland’s Andrina Gugger (S2000 BMW 320si) and Ulrike Krafft; Gugger is leading by twelve points.
