At that time real world stars visited our event, for example the winner of the first world cup was Nasser Al-Attiyah, who also got the first place of the biggest motorsport event of the world the Dakar Rallye in 2010.

The Hungarian Baja has reached to a new, important milestone in 2011. On the one hand, the participants were welcomed by the town of Gyor, and on the other hand the event was accepted among the events of the Cross-Country World Cup series founded by FIA.

During the years it became a tradition that the fans of the motorsport say goodbye to Summer with Hungarian Baja, which will be organised on the last weekend of August in 2012 as well.

The event strenghten its position in the international racing calendars, since the participants of the moto-quad field can obtain scores not only in the European Championship, but - similary to the cars - also the field of the Cross-Country World Cup will compete in Hungary.

Beside his first place in "Central Europe Rally", his list of results contains other vitories: for example a second place at Dakar Rallye in 2007, but he can also be proud of the World Cup first position in 2010. The The participation of the 38 years old French star is also gladsome, because he has not participated in the Italian Baja - which was the first event of the 4 event FIM Baja World Cup - he postponed his come out for Hungary.

Among the moto drivers there is an increasing interest for the Hungarian World Cup event, and also a serious participation intent from South Western Europe.

Among the quad drivers, the constant participant of the Dakar Rallies, the Uruguayan Luis Henderson has already sent his start permit in February to the Hungarian Association.

Several months before the start, Henderson has already received his first competitors from Europe, because the Spanish Quadtro Team is planning to participate in this year Hungarian Baja with three quads, among them the current leader of the FIM Baja World Cup series, Oscar Romero.
