A slick and professional operation based at the bespoke Technology Centre in Roudnice north of Prague, the Buggyra squad have high hopes for the 2018 season with a driver line up of reigning champion Adam Lacko and newcomer Oly Janes
The team, which is managed by Jan Kalivoda, has achieved notable success throughout the years with several class wins from 2007 onwards.
The 2015 season was one of Buggyra’s most successful with 8 wins helping Adam Lacko to 2nd in the championship, and David Vršecký to 4th.
Lacko has raced extensively within the Charouz and Buggyra stables, competing in diverse racing such as FIA GT and FIA World Touring Cars. He came to trucks in 2011 and immediately started at the front, scoring several wins on his way to a stellar 2017 title campaign.
In 2016 Lacko was joined by truck racing newcomer, Jirí Forman The 22 year-old driver from Úvaly u Prahy, which is east of the Czech capital Prague, showed flashes of good form but was ultimately learning throughout the season.
For 2017 Vršecký returned but missed the first two races at Red Bull Ring and Misano.
The team will be hoping to retain their titles in both the drivers and teams titles with its distinctive Freightliner 'Fatfox' trucks in 2018 as they raced as Buggyra Racing 1969 in the Teams championship.
