Nicodemus Verzhbitsky is the best driver of the first KIA PLATINUM CUP race in Monza!
This year, KIA MOTORS POLSKA and ORLEN OIL continued their collaboration within the KIA PLATINUM CUP project, which once again was a major success. According to eyewitnesses, including representatives of the firm "LOCO", during the KIA PLATINUM CUP drivers had the opportunity to drive almost 700 racing kilometers, and adding qualifications and training to this number exceeded more than 2000 kilometers. In total, the starting competitors had the opportunity to compete for about 70 hours!
The season this year began at the Hungaroring near Budapest, later the drivers competed on the Red Bull Ring, During a home tour in Poznan, at the Slovakiaringu and the Most racetrack. The fight ended on the legendary Monza highway near Italian Milan.
The 2019 season went down in history and certainly belonged to one of the most interesting championships of Poland Kia Picanto. The collaboration of ORLEN OIL and other partners has provided the best racing of all races.

The Platinum Rider Super Enduro Championship will take place in Eleny Doliny near Elblag on August 24-25, a top class competition organized by the Warmia Auto Moto Club. The title sponsor of the event is ORLEN OIL.
Super Enduro events are gaining in popularity in Poland, gathering more and more athletes and amateurs as well as spectators from all over the country.
The PLATINUM RIDER Championship will be kicked off by the World Cup participants: Alexander Gotkovski, Grzegorz Kargul and Vice-World Champion 2017/2018 among juniors Emil Yushchak. The last of them goes as before in the classification of the Polish Championships with the highest number of stages won.
On August 25, the second stage of the KTMsklep.pl Enduro Race will take place, which will provide the audience with another dose of emotions after the first day. The event will be accompanied by a picnic atmosphere.
Оne of the sponsors of the event is ORLEN OIL - manufacturer of PLATINUM RIDER - motorcycle engine oils, which provides the best gearbox performance while maintaining perfect component cleanliness in all driving conditions - a simple, easily accessible and practical solution for motorcyclists.
In the 36th issue of the event, Cuba Psihonsky ranked third in the fifth, Maciej Gemza climbed to 6th place in the overall ranking. Adam Tomichek, a motorcycle rider, struggled with technical issues. The ORLEN Team motorcyclists finished the podium in the junior classification - Maciej Gimza was 2, Adam Tomicek 3.
- In Spain, we performed well, satisfied with the podium and fought with Martin Prokop and Joan Roma until the end. The last stage was crucial, we set out to the full.
40 km before the last section, we had a breakdown with the brake cooling pump, at some point the brake temperature reached about 200 degrees, the car practically did not brake, but we managed to control it. Weather conditions were very variable: from rain and storm to hot weather and lots of dust. There were a lot of fans along the route, which is always motivating. The route was very narrow, the tires and brakes were heavily operated, care had to be taken on the side of the road not to cut the tire. I am glad we are back to the game, ”said Cuba Psihonsky.
The classification of the car was won by Orlando Teranova with pilot MINI John Cooper Works Rally. Among the group of motorcyclists was the best Michael Metge (Sherko).
Such a question can be heard quite often. And the answers are quite different, often opposite. We will try and we will give our brief answer to this question.
To begin, we will deal with the definitions.
Concentrate of antifreeze or coolant is a mixture of alcohols with enriching additives (additives). In qualitative concentrates it is usually diatomic alcohols. For example, monoethylene glycol (abbreviated MEG) or propylene glycol. The crystallization temperature of the concentrate on such a base is about -15 ° C. After dilution with water, this temperature can be knitted to -75 ° C.
Ready to use antifreeze - a mixture of concentrate diluted with water. Depending on the aspect ratio, you can obtain the desired temperature of hardening.
And here the answer is that the concentrate is used more rationally, because it can affect the temperature of the hardening itself.
But it turns out not so simple.
Firstly. Water is the main cause of all kinds of corrosion and the safest of them - cavitation.
Second. In addition to the crystallization temperature, the boiling point is equally important, and these quantities are closely interconnected.
As mentioned earlier, the crystallization temperature of the concentrate is -15 ° C, and the boiling point is + 85 ° C. Such indicators for the cooling system is obviously not enough.
Thirdly. When diluting the concentrate, we dilute it and the additives therein (anticorrosive, anti-foaming, etc.), and their percentage can be only 2% of the content of the concentrate. Therefore, inaccurate dilution may have a significant effect on the performance of the liquid.
Fourth. When extracting concentrate it is necessary to pay attention, how exactly to observe proportions in weight or volume. How many liquids have different densities.
For example, 1 kg of antifreeze concentrate is about 0.93 liters, and 1 kg of water is about 1 liter!
Thus, the dilution of concentrate with water is not as simple as it may seem at first glance, because for this you need to have some knowledge about the characteristics of the products, have a specially prepared water and the ability to determine the final characteristics of antifreeze. After all, when we buy a ready-made liquid, the manufacturer is obliged to inform us about the physical and chemical properties of the product, the influence of liquid on metals, sealants, the availability of tests of finished liquid.
As responsibility for the finished product is borne by its manufacturer, and for the product we created by ourselves of the two components of concentrate and water - virtually nobody, my advice to choose the finished product. And well when this product is manufactured in accordance with standards or approved standards (eg ASTM-D) and tested, such as: a 1064-hour test for corrosion action on metals. It would not be bad at all, as if such a product had the permission of engine manufacturers or equipment.
With the wishes of trouble-free operation

Last weekend the first round of the Polish Drifting Championship took place. Cuba Pshigonsky competed for the champion of Poland in 2019. The new version of its Toyota GT86 completed the PRO class on TOP 16.
Unfortunately, during the ride there was a problem with the engine management system, which allowed only one successful departure. On the pedestal in the PRO class in the first round of DMY took part: Peter Trojanek, Igor Stolarek and Jacek Pope.
- "Our new car came out very well, but unfortunately because of a small electrical breakdown, I made only one good departure, all the next was weaker.
The first attempt was made the best that characterizes the car as fast and can be used in future championships.
During the second departure, which happens in pairs, I made a mistake and fell out, but sometimes it happens. In general, I am pleased that after a winter break the car is in good condition. It is necessary to combine it with the best beginnings - says Cuba Psigonsky.
The second round of the Polish Drifting Championship is scheduled to take place on June 14-15 in Kielce. The championship cycle will include 6 rounds.
