Racing careerEdit

 
Kostka competing at the opening round of the 2009 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters season at Hockenheim.

Kostka raced in Formula Ford and the Ford Puma Cup in 2001. He raced in Formula BMW ADAC and Austrian F3 the following year. He moved onto the more competitive Recaro F3 Cup in 2003. He combined another year there in 2004 with races in the World Series by Nissan and Euro Formula 3000 championship. He carried on in Formula Renault 3.5 Series for another two seasons, amassing a total of 12 points. He moved into touring cars in the Czech series, racing an Audi A4 DTM, in which he won the 2008 Sprint championship.[1]

Kostka raced for A1 Team Czech Republic at the first round of the 2006–07 A1 Grand Prix season at Circuit Park Zandvoort. He also competed in the 2007 24 Hours of Le Mans in a Ferrari 550-GTS Maranello for Convers MenX Racing, finishing 14th overall.

His performances in his national series were enough to be signed by Colin Kolles to drive a two-year-old Audi A4 for his DTM team for 2009.
