In the Baltic Six-Hour Endurance Championship, the expectations of the fans are related to the “LV Racing” team – in the prestigious TCR class overall with the Audi RS3 LMS TCR car, this unit ranks third, but if successful, it is also possible to become champions. Another Latvian team “Mazeikiu Auto sporta klubs” has an equally difficult task in the A3000 class, but the team with Artūrs Šimins in the lead is only in the mood for victory!

There will also be fans’ favorites “Flash Racing Latvia” with the exclusive Lamborghini “Super Trofeo” vehicle. The same will be true for two more competitors. The team has not succeeded this season due to technical reasons, but even the walls help at home and the team will fight for the victory in the absolute race of the class!

Everything is in Jānis Hāns’ “BTC4” class – victory in both races will allow fulfilling the long-cherished dream of becoming the Baltic champion. However, Finnish athlete Jyrki Jonkkari has exactly the same ambitions to defend his title! But Atis Veismanis in the “BTC2” class with a stable performance during the season is at arm’s length from the first place, currently taking the second place in the overall ranking table. The competition in this class in Riga will be very fierce, but Ata’s experience on the Biķernieki track allows us to hope for success.
