The TCR Europe race on Hockenheimring has changed into the Destruction Derby

The TCR Europe race on Hockenheimring has changed into the Destruction Derby

Slovak racing driver, Mato Homola, didn’t manage to finish both of the races during the racing weekend of TCR Europe series, on the German circuit Hockenheimring.

Mato missed the P10 in the qualifying session with 0,03 second. Everything could be different than, as he will start to the second race from the P1. In racing, there is nothing like “what if”, so Mato was starting from the P11 to both of the races.

The starting position to the Race 1 was in the 6th row, P11. Real mayhem started after the great start from Mato, who managed to be in top 10 just after a few corners. Mato lost several places immediately after many contacts, he was even forced to leave the track several times. “I have been hit many times and, in addition, I had issues with my brakes. I had to push the pedal so hard, that my foot slipped from the pedal and I had to avoid the crash and left the track. Later on, I drove over some debris on the track and had an immediate puncture,” adds Mato.

Mato had a simple strategy for Race 2. A good start and avoid contacts. He managed the first part, with P10 already in the first corner. However, the second part was an issue, as immediately in the first half of the first lap, destruction derby from yesterday continued. Dusan Borkovic has flown to the slowest corner with speed, which was almost impossible to slow down. Mato, trying to avoid the crash on his door has moved to the side and left him space. On the exit of the corner, Dusan fighting with Paulsen caused damage to Matos car and forced Mato to retire from the race with broken intercooler, later that lap. Compared to the successful weekend in Hungary, this was a nightmare with no points to the championship.

“There is a huge mix of sadness, frustration, and anger, as I wanted to make some good TOP 10 results with points, but other drivers are fighting like crazy. Of course, small impacts and contacts are part of touring car racing, but this was too much,” said frustrated Mato and he adds: “I’m over it now, I can change only the future. I will be even more motivated now for the Spa-Francorchamps race in 2 weeks. I have made some good results there and I really like it there. I will do the maximum to finish the qualifying in the TOP 10, as this gives you good starting position for the first, or second race.”

Mato Homola will fight for another TCR Europe victory this weekend

Winner of the first 2019 TCR Race on Hungaroring, Mato Homola, is on his way to Hockenheim, for the second racing weekend of TCR Europe 2019. One of the best Slovak drivers, racing Hyundai i30 N TCR in the colors of the Italian Target Competition, will be one of the candidates for the victory.

Mato Homola, currently 3rd in the overall ranking of the championship, has gone through a lot of testing on the racing simulator, as this will be his maiden appearance on this circuit. “This will be the first time on Hockenheimring for me. I have spent many hours behind the simulator, and I am looking forward to getting there! Despite the circuit being transformed to another “Tilkedrome” in 2002, it has more options for overtaking and several difficult corners, what should be really good for my “N” and my driving style,” said Mato before the weekend.

Mato has not only made it to the pole position on Hungaroring, but he was also able to win the first race and he would like to continue. “Indeed. The victory tastes great. But there is a lot of strong competition, 10 Hyundais, and other strong brands. I will say my favorite saying – I will fight like a tiger and give it my best. When didn’t I?”, explains Mato.

The racing weekend will be a little different compared to the last one in Hungary. Both Free practice sessions will be held on Friday, with the Qualifying and the Race 1 on Saturday. Second Race is planned for Sunday. You can follow the first race live on the website of Slovak national TV RTVS and the second one will be broadcasted live on the Dvojka TV channel. Both of the sessions will have live Slovak commentary from Jan Zgravcak and Michal Cimbalik.
