VACULIK: MY BEST YEAR
Friday 12th October 2012, 12:50
Slovak star Martin Vaculik reflected happily on “an amazing year” after reaching the FIM Torun SGP of Poland semis last Saturday.
The 22-year-old qualified as first reserve for this season’s competition by finishing fourth in the 2011 GP Challenge at Vetlanda.
Vaculik got his opportunity to race in the World Championship, courtesy of injuries for Jaroslaw Hampel and Kenneth Bjerre, and he has taken his chance to shine with aplomb.
"This has been an amazing year for me, especially in the leagues and the same in the GP."
- Martin Vaculik
The Zarnovica-born man won on his SGP debut in Gorzow and reached the final of the Italian Grand Prix at Terenzano.
He could also finish with gold medals in two leagues as he lines up for Tarnow in their Polish Ekstraliga play-off final, second leg at home to Gorzow on Sunday, hoping to add to his title with Swedish side Vetlanda.
Reflecting on an impressive campaign, Vaculik said: “This has been an amazing year for me, especially in the leagues and the same in the GP.
“I won a GP, hopefully I’ll have two golds from Sweden and Poland and I can say this is my best year. I’m very happy and thankful for my results. I want to say hello to all the fans and thank them for supporting me.
“It was a good meeting for me to end the Grand Prix season with in Torun. I didn’t get to the final, but what can you do? I’m so happy with the semi-final.”
