The Entry List deadlinefor this year’s EHC Buzetski Dani closed on Monday and, unofficially, we are expecting over 180 cars from 10 European countries, including 19 Formulas, seven of which hold top positions, about 40 promo drivers and 10 zero cars.
Currently leading Italian driver and Buzet track recorder, Simone Faggioli is a special treat. Last year he broke his own record – 2.11,858, racing the track at 137 km/h. Bearing in mind the Buzet event is last in the European calendar, the usual picture so far has been one of relaxed competitors with little or no need to get at each other’s vehicles. This year, however, this is not so – the holders of the European championship will be decided in Buzet, which means we are in for a great weekend full of suspense and excitement. In Category l Mr. Faggioli is only slightly ahead his compatriot, Mr. Bormolini so the race will be sizzling.
In Category ll in which the Croatian driver Tomislav Muhvic runs for the European trone, we also expect an exciting showdown.
As mentioned above, the Buzetski Dani event is the last in the European calendar and seventh in the Croatian Championship. It is the oldest hillclimb race in Croatia and along the Croatian Rally event it attracts the biggest audience.
