A slick and professional operation based at the bespoke Technology Centre in Roudnice north of Prague, the Buggyra squad, which is managed by Jan Kalivoda, has achieved notable success throughout the years with several class wins from 2007 onwards.
The 2015 season was one of Buggyra’s most successful with 8 wins helping Adam Lacko to 2nd in the championship, and David Vršecký to 4th.
Lacko has raced extensively within the Charouz and Buggyra stables, competing in diverse racing such as FIA GT and FIA World Touring Cars. He came to trucks in 2011 and immediately started at the front, scoring several wins on his way to a stellar 2017 title campaign.
In 2016 Lacko was joined by truck racing newcomer, Jirí Forman The 22 year-old driver from Úvaly u Prahy, which is east of the Czech capital Prague, showed flashes of good form but was ultimately learning throughout the season.
For 2017 Vršecký returned but missed the first two races at Red Bull Ring and Misano.
2018 saw a memorable first title for Adam Lacko, while last season witnessed a runners-up position for the Czech ace and the emergence of Oly Janes in the second truck.
Olly Janes raced to GRAMMER TRUCK CUP glory in 2019 beating fellow countryman Jamie Anderson to the crown in the last race of the season at Jarama. Adam Lacko ended last season on a high when he claimed his third victory of the season in the penultimate race in Spain.
The BUGGYRA Zero Mileage Racing team stunned the world of truck racing by announcing a remarkable new pairing to race alongside Lacko in the 2020 FIA European Truck Racing Championship: Téo Calvet and Aliyyah Koloc.
Seasoned racer Adam Lacko was in the mix with the front runners and scored two wins in 2020.
In 2021 the Buggyra ZM Racing team ran three trucks again and it was a successful campaign for the Czech outfit.
Adam Lacko scored 10 podiums and a win, whilst Téo Calvet took the battle for the Promoter's Cup down to the last race, where he had to settle for second. The French driver also scored a sensational first overall win at Jarama, and his younger team mate Alyiyah Koloc scored her first category cup podium at the Spanish round of the Championship.
The Frenchman made history as the youngest driver ever to stand on a Goodyear FIA ETRC podium when he finished third in the Promoter's Cup at the Nürburgring in 2018. Calvet scored his first overall win in 2021 and was also in contention for the Promoter's Cup title.
