Seventeen year old Czech Republic driver Petr Ptacek returns to New Zealand in 2020 for a second shot at the Castrol Toyota Racing Series.
Two podiums and eighth overall in the Formula Renault Eurocup championship last year highlighted a 2019 that also included the MRF Challenge series in India and an impressive victory on his Asian F3 championship debut at Suzuka in Japan, as well as his TRS campaign.
A karter from the age of seven, Prague-based Ptacek came into last season’s TRS campaign on the back of a Rookie Cup-winning season in the Italian F4 Championship. For the coming season he will run with mtec Motorsport engineered by R-ace GP.
With circuit knowledge and an understanding of the Tatuus chassis that underpins TRS as well as the Formula Renault Eurocup and the Asian F3 championship, Ptacek is looking forward to moving up the grid in New Zealand.
