ÇUKUROVA CAME FIRST AND AVCI BECAME CHAMPION AT KÖRFEZ

 

    Yağız Avcı, Burak Çukurova, Can Tolon and Ümit Can Özdemir, who had a chance to be champion, displayed a cut-throat struggle in the competition in which 16 pilots started. While Burak Çukurova ranked first in the weekend race thanks to his high performance, Yağız Avcı ranked second, and Dağhan Ünlüdoğan ranked third. Young pilots Ümit Can Özdemir and Can Tolon stayed out of the struggle due to the mistakes they made in the initial tours of the 8-tour race held at Körfez Race Track.

    In this way, the second season was completed at V1 Challenge, the most exciting and closely contended race series of Turkey, held through VOLKICARS which are designed and produced by Volkan Işık, who is the rally legend of Turkey. Yağız Avcı who became the master of VOLKICAR at the end of 7-month series held in the cities of Tarsus, Izmir, Aydın and Kocaeli expressed his opinions as follows: “This championship title is really good for me after the second place I achieved at Turkey Rally Championship this year. I thank all those who contributed efforts to this beautiful organization and who supported me. It was very pleasurable…”

   Can Tolon ranked third with 93 points in the 2012 season general classification of V1 Challenge, which is the first and only Turkish championship, while Burak Çukurova ranked second with 108 points and Yağız Avcı ranked first with 109 points. While Ayşegül Bacak ranked first in the classification of female pilots with 125 points, Özge Yelkenci, who was raced by her friends with a special on-vehicle design as a birthday gift, got second place with 117 points. Gözde Gizer completed the season in the third place by collecting 15 points.

   Telia Sonera is the main sponsor of V1 Challenge while Lassa, Castrol, ISS Catering Services, CMS, Vakkorama and Power FM are co-sponsors.
