Three-time FIA European Truck Racing Champion Norbert Kiss joined the FIA European Rally Championship field on Rally Hungary last weekend.
But rather than attempting rapid stage times in a racing truck weighing more than five tonnes, the Hungarian truck racing ace responded to the Rally Hungary organisers’ brief by entertaining the vast crowds at Rabócsiring on Friday evening and on the Nyíregyháza city stage on Sunday morning.
“It was a great honour to be invited to Rally Hungary again, and I was particularly happy this time because we arrived at the home track, since my team, Révész Racing is from Nyíregyháza, as three-time European champions,” Kiss said. “I liked both stages a lot, and although I had to cut it close in one or two tight corners on the city stage, the rest of the time I tried to entertain the crowd. I understand that they like drifting and the tyres smoking, but of course, the rally drivers are in the main focus, and there is an amazing battle at the top.”
