This is just a part of the story about a kid whose family I met 30 years ago – his name is Nikola Miljković, and in his biography he also wrote how he started.
My name is Nikola Miljkovic. I was born on June 2, 1995. in Belgrade. My whole life so far has been related to motorsports, because my father is also a motorist, so from my earliest days, when I was in a wheelchair, I spent time on car racing. As I got out of the wheelchair I got into the car. Already at the age of three, I started my dad’s race car, and very often slept in it. I could hardly wait to learn to write, but also to start karting.
I spent my childhood on the karting track “Ada Huja” in Belgrade, which is located a few hundred meters from my house. Of course I became their mascot and later one of the track workers. There I also met Vlado Stojić Debeli, who was also my mentor. I started competing in karting when I was less than ten years old, and it was like that until I was sixteen. During that period, I was a three-time runner-up in various categories, and then came December 2010 and my first race car. It was a car that my godfather had driven before and he had been standing in the garage waiting for us for two years.
In the continuation of his sports career, Nikola described the most important moments, mentioned cups and victories, and in 2016 he climbed to the roof of the European Mountain Championship, about which I wrote an article for “Kurir” that year. He gained a lot of fans across the old continent as the youngest champion.
He quickly reached foreign touring races and these days he presented the latest car, “Renault Clio Cup”, which he provided (I believe with the wholehearted help of the Auto Moto Association of Serbia) together with his friend and also our famous champion Ivan Mandic – Jim. Their plan is for Nikola to drive in the Clio Cup races, and for Ćima to try out on the mountain Euro tracks, which we talked about recently at Ušće….
On Saturday, 26-year-old Nikola Miljković participated in a very difficult race of the Clio Cup of Europe, in Italy, at the famous Monza. 50 competitors were registered and almost all of them started. Our trophy ace won the 14th place in the qualifications at the start with +1.630 seconds in relation to the best time…. In a big crowd of mostly Italian and French motorists, Nikola Miljković managed to save the car from the usual contacts, and to finish enters as 15. with a lag of + 12,172 seconds. The Italian Felice Jelmini won.
The second race is scheduled for Sunday, starting at 9:10 AM.
