The 2013 European Champion is preparing for the new season. Slovak is really optimistic about the idea of choosing the starting numbers by the riders –" It’s really good idea. Every rider has lucky and favorite number which he would like to have on his back while he is riding. It can be a kind of talisman. It is also very good way of popularizing speedway and a rider. When you ask fans about the number 46, their first association are connected with Valentino Rossi. The number of a rider is like his second name. This is really it, I’m really happy with this idea."
As the European Champion Vaculik gets number one –" I associate number #1 really well. Mainly because when you are first you’re the best. It’s really special number for every sportsman. I’m really happy because of it so I’m not going to change it. If I were to choose any other number it would be probably 777 but as I said my number is #1."
This season the current leader of SEC will also have yellow plastron. During the tournament in Guestrow Vaculik will get it. Is Slovak going to give someone the symbol of leadership? – "I would like to have it till the very end but it is just sport and I can’t promise it. Last season was very good for me in SEC and I will do everything to make 2014 the same. I would like to ride in a yellow plastron from the beginning till the end but we’ll see how it will look during the season. "
