In our first year of operation V-Racing Velenje posted a number of outstanding racing results in 2004.
At the recent Rally Koper our team Smrdelj/Cjuha with Renault Clio Ragnotti took first place in Division II and 7th place overall. For the most part of the race they held fifth position, however a deflated tyre cost them 30 seconds. Despite this mishap they managed to scrape a win in Division II.
As a matter of interest, they finished highest of all teams in Group N with a two-wheel drive car.
Dear Motor Sports Fans!
The V-Racing Velenje motor sports club in cooperation with REVOZ of Novo mesto and numerous other partners will take part in the National Rally Championship of Slovenia with a Renault Clio series N 2000. With Borut Smrdelj at the wheel and co-driver Aleš Cjuha at his side we have a very experienced team which has already achieved several top level results in past national championships and individual races in their class. We expect them to keep up this level of performance also in the 2004 season.
The Renault Clio N 2000 will generally be a product of Slovenian know-how as the vehicle itself is manufactured in Novo mesto while our Slovenian partners and certain specialists from Slovenia and abroad will turn it into a top level Rally car.
Five rallys will be organised as part of this year's National Rally Championship of Slovenia to be held under the umbrella of the AŠ 2005 Slovenian motor sports association. The first one will take place on 29 May in Koper, the second one on 11 July in Maribor, while the remaining three will be held in the fall (Velenje, Saturnus and Gorica).
Borut Smrdelj and his car will also take part in certain hillclimbs. He will certainly be at the GHD Rogla hillclimb special on 22 May and the GHD Gorjanci hillclimb special on 27 June 2004.
We would love to have you join us on the sidelines cheering for our team and having a great time.
Sporting salute !
