Karel's racing heroes are Nicky Hayden and his dad, that is where it all began. "I started racing when I was 6 years old. My dad was racing and he was Champion of the Czech republic in 1992, so I wanted to go racing like him. My first race was in April 2003 in Pardubice (CZ), MIinibike 40 class Junior A, and I finished 4th.
"I want to race in the Moto3 World Championship and work my way into the top 10. The next goal can come later but of course I want to be World Champion." At school he enjoys Maths, Spanish and sport and away from racing Floorball (handball), tennis, cycling, boulder climbing, skiing, snowboarding and Playstation 3.
From 2012 I learnt really many things. Especially I learned to sort out my position in groups and also I learned passing, because in the Cup there is so much passing other riders. This season I want to achieve better result than 2012. It would be nice to win the Cup. My next steps will depends on this season, but certainly I want to participate in the World Championship.
