Hungarian double for Jedloczy and Makeš
Mark Jedloczy and Michal Makeš had a picture perfect weekend at Hungaroring. Both drivers won their races on Saturday and Sunday and leave as double winners in their categories, TC for Jedloczy and Clio Cup for Makeš.
While Jedloczy set the fastest lap in qualifying, he got penalised for ignoring yellow flags and he dropped to the second row behind Tamás Tenke and Gábor Kismarty-Lechner. That gave the first three spots on the grid to the home team Zengo Motorsport. Nemanja Milovanovics then started from 4th.
However, losing the pole position was no problem for Jedloczy as he made his way back to the lead in the opening lap of the race. After that he put on a great performance, setting one fastest lap after another and quickly pulled away from Milovanovics, who had a relatively easy and calm race but had to settle for only the 2nd place.
But there was a big battle for the final podium position. At the beginning of the race, SEATs of Zengo Motorsport held the 3rd and 4th places, but just after a few laps, Jozsef Merk joined the battle in his Lada. Soon, Merk moved to 4th and started to threaten Kismarty-Lechner in 3rd, who had also a hard time dealing with backmarkers. Any hopes for an exciting battle were thwarted though by a late Safety Car, which then stayed until the end.
Nobody could stop Mark Jedloczy from taking a double at Hungaroring, not even Nemanja Milovanovics who finished 2nd ahead of Gábor Kismarty-Lechner in 3rd. All Top 3 drivers raced with SEAT Leon cars.
Even on Sunday, the TC cars were joined on the grid by the Clio Cup series. Michal Makeš and Petr Majer started from the first row, but quickly dropped behind as Zoran Poglajen and yesterday‘s winner Michal Makeš got in front. The current Clio Cup champion did not stay in 2nd place for long and passed an orange Clio of Poglajen for the lead of the race. Soon after Majer followed and Poglajen had to retire. Martin Fischer then completed the podium and Zoltán Mink finished in 4th.
