European STK 1000 and SSP 300 Cup:
Szamado and Tritscher grab the titles
In mixed weather conditions the 6th and last round of the European STK 1000 and SSP 300 Cup was raced together with the Alpe Adria Championship at Automotodrom Grobnik, Croatia. The series went back to the track after the fourth round raced at the beginning of August.
In Race 1, declared wet race but with the track mostly dry, leader Mate Samado started from the pole position trying to set the pace. At his first race in the championship the Polish STK 1000 AA Champion Milan Pawelec took the lead in the first lap, ruling the manche and winning by a margin of 15 seconds ahead of the Hungarian. Third place for Praticia Sowa.
Race 2 started as wet race. Again, Pawelec won ahead of Szamado and Sowa.
A double second was enough for the Hungarian leader to confirm his leadership and took the European SSP300 title with 275 points. It was an amazing season for Szamado, who ruled most of the races with 7 victories and 5 second places. Silver medal for Polish Mateusz Molik, absent at this last round of the season, and bronze for the Czech rider Daniel Turecek.
STK 1000 Race 1 started on Saturday late afternoon under dry conditions with poleman Lenart Ulbl who took the win, but was disqualified after a technical protest. The victory went to championship leader Martin Tritscher. Second and third position for Macedonian riders Hristijan Buzalkovski and Sinisha Kochoski.
Dry conditions in Race 2 too. Once more Ulbl ruled the manche conquering the victory ahead of Tritscher and Hungarian Daniel Ersek.
The challenge for the title saw Tritscher took the gold medal ahead of Ulbel (-26) and Buzalkovski, respectively second and third.
