The first team to complete registration formalities yesterday was "Strack Racing By JR Motorsport" from the Netherlands.

They are not new to the Lithuanian event. It could be even said that both the team managers and the drivers know Palanga better than they know their favourite spots in their home country.

"Dynami:t Energy team" in this year's “Aurum 1006 km powered by Hankook” race raises their quality bar

Last year’s race was not a very successful for the "Dynami:t Energy" team in the "Aurum 1006 km powered by Hankook" race: cars crashed, broke down, burned, but the team leader Mantas Matukaitis stood up after every stumble and worked hard and kept trying to win. So this year, the expectations are even higher for the team, which has updated its name to “Ignera & BioCircle by Dynami:t”. The team will race with a “Lamborghini Huracan ST EVO”, which hopefully will be able to fight for the podium.
