photo_2013_etcc_86.jpgPetr Fulín dominated his home race meeting at Brno Automotodrom, winning both races in his Krenek Motorsport BMW 320si and clinching the European title in the Super 2000 class.

And there is no doubt that he deserved to be champion.

After he drew attention to himself in 2012 as Fernando Monje’s toughest competitor, during the current season Fulín proved that he had learnt from last year, and added maturity to speed.

With a tally of four pole positions out of five and eight podium finishes (five victories and three second places) out of ten races, he was in a league of his own, eclipsing his more experienced team-mate and fellow Czech countryman Michal Matějovský, and keeping at distance Slovakia’s teen-ager Mat’o Homola.

It’s easy to guess that without the incident that eliminated him from the two races at Salzburgring, Fulín could have clinched the title well before the final event.

“I have to thank my team for their great job. Throughout the whole season they gave me a very competitive car. My only concern was to drive fast and avoid mistakes,” the new champion said.

And now? What will the future bring? “Now it’s time for celebration. We will think about the future in the next weeks. My obvious goal is WTCC, but I understand this is the wrong timing as the technical regulations are changing. However for the apprenticeship season, we are looking at the trophy for the 2013 cars. I will discuss this opportunity with Jiří Krenek.”
