Montenegrin motorist Vasilije Jakšić will start the new season of the European Mountain Track Championship with a race in Austria this coming weekend on the Rehberg track.

Jakšić, the European champion on mountain tracks in 2022, will drive a Hyundai I30 N TCR in the new season.

The participation of 233 cars was announced, of which 26 were registered in its class.

"I will try in the strongest and most numerous class 3, with the new Hyundai I30 N TCR vehicle. This season I didn't have time to prepare for the championship the way I want, but that won't stop me from trying myself in the strongest competition and see what we can do and how much my new car and I can do," said Jakšić.

He pointed out that it is still questionable whether, due to financial problems, he will take away the entire calendar.

"I hope that a sponsor will contact us soon. After Austria in the first part of the championship, Spain, Portugal, the Czech Republic and Germany follow, before the summer break", said Jakšić.

He announced that his brother Milan will also compete in the upcoming championship with Honda in class 5.

"They will use the opportunity to try and test the new performance of their vehicle, which they have been working on all winter," said Jakšić.

The member of the Kotor Auto Moto Sports Club achieved six victories in the championship season, while he was second in two races out of a total of nine.

He is the first Montenegrin driver with the title of the best driver in Europe in the general classification, and he is a three-time champion of the Central European zone.
