In memoriam OTAKAR KRAMSKY 1959 – 2015


He closed his eyes and leaned his head forward. In the pre-start area. Collecting

his thoughts, he was whizzing through the most difficult points along the track. At first

slowly and calmly in his mind, later literally zigzagging up the racecourse. He did this one

last time. Today in Rechberg, Austria, during the Hillclimb Championship.

Otakar Kramsky, the Czech Formula Reynard K-15 driver, was a passionate

competitor who adored the hill climbs. His short life was overflown with many victories,

titles of utmost prestige. There was no one like him in his home country, several times

National Champion and many times on European stands.

And, yes – he loved Buzet. He loved the spectators, the track, the fireworks

display at Komušćica curve… He did enjoy the “sports spectacle with the soul”, in his own

Otakar Kramsky whizzed the Most – Peničići track in Buzet in September 2014 for

the last time. He stopped, in full swing in the Austrian hills. Forever. We wish to thank

him for creating a speck of Buzetski Dani history.

” I’ll be back next year” he told us leaving Buzet last year. He will be back indeed.

In our hearts and minds he’ll live forever…

AK Buzet
