The 30th anniversary of the Czech Truck Prix, European NASCAR races and the Touring Car Championship. This will be the first weekend in September in Most (3rd to 4th September), which is officially called TEXTAR Czech Truck Prix 30 years & NASCAR Whelen Euro Series. The busiest race weekend of the season will be complemented by the participation of British Top Gear magazine and website, which will film "Speed Week" at the Most circuit - a selection of the best performance cars of this year.


This year, AUTODROM MOST has experienced a busy season. The successful Superbike World Championship Czech round in late July will be followed by no less intensive programme at the North Bohemian circuit early in September as Most will host truck races, the NASCAR Euro series round, and touring car races from 3rd to 4th September. The local fans are sure to have fun because each series will see some Czech Republic’s representatives. In addition, the thirtieth anniversary of truck racing at Most ensures that the side events programme is more varied than ever.


One of the biggest surprises is the participation of the BBC Top Gear production team, who will be at the Most circuit in late August and early September to prepare the annual issue of the famous magazine focusing on this year's most exciting sports cars. The Czech Truck Prix spectators will then be able to see these cars up close not only at the Top Gear stand, but also watch them on the track during a parade lap. During Saturday's programme, the British Top Gear test drivers, led by the mysterious Stig, will announce the three absolute winners of this year's best performance cars.


Above all, both Saturday and Sunday will be full of high-quality of motorsport. The eagerly anticipated FIA European Truck Racing Championship round is scheduled, where the Buggyra ZM Racing has traditionally shown well on the home circuit. Its driver pairing has remained the same: the local hero Adam Lacko and Téo Calvet of France.


Another series of the weekend, the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series, will also see some Czech contestants. The last season's champion in EuroNASCAR 2, Martin Doubek of the Orion racing team, will participate in the main class, EuroNASCAR PRO. Aliyyah and Yasmeen Koloc of the Buggyra team will drive two Ford Mustangs in the EuroNASCAR PRO and EuroNASCAR 2 categories.


The third racing series the motorsport fans can look forward to on both Saturday and Sunday on the first weekend in September is the TCR Eastern Europe touring car championship. Attention is focussed particularly upon the Hyundai Janík Motorsport team, where Václav Janík and Petr Semerád will drive their Hyundai i30N TCR cars fighting for overall individual and team titles.


The whole busy race weekend starts already on Thursday, 1st September, when a convoy of almost twenty racing vehicles will set off on a parade through downtown Most on the eve of the 30th anniversary Czech Truck Prix (5:30 pm). This parade will be joined by a part of Britain’s Top Gear magazine team headed by the legendary Stig. The route leads from the Autodrom to the “Za poštou” parking area (Parking Pošta, F. L. Gassmanna) for a meeting with fans. A driver autograph session, demonstration of cars and equipment as well as contests for valuable prizes will take place there.


There is a varied programme for every fan to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary. As a matter of course, the programme includes access to the paddock, driver autograph sessions, stage shows, and the popular Truck Fest. The organisers have prepared an exhibition of trucks with alternative propulsion systems, truck skid control course demonstration drives, off-road drives in an IVECO truck, attractions for children and their parents, and thematic merchandising.
