Salač may have struggled in his first appearance in the CzechGP where he only managed to score a 24thplace finish but if his performances in both the Red Bull Rookies Cup and FIM CEV Moto3 Junior Championship are anything to go by, he shouldn’t be written off so soon.

The young rider took on a lot in 2018 as he split himself between the two series but managed to maintain a decent hold on both CEV and Red Bull Rookies cup. He took fourth in the Red Bull Rookies cup, claiming five podiums as well as six top 10 finishes and only the one retirement. His CEV campaign wasn’t as successful as his Red Bull Rookies fight but Salač still walked away with 11thplace in the standings and seven top 10 finishes.

As he prepares to don his PrustelGP leathers and hop onto the KTM powered machine, Salač has some big boots to fill as he takes the seat (and number) of 2018 title runner up Marco  Bezzecchi who graduated into Moto2 with Red Bull Tech3 KTM but it won’t be too long before we can really show us what he can deliver.
