Hungarian Baja: Lónyai with HRX-Ford after burnt BMW, Fazekas teamed up.







For the Hungarian rallydriver Pál Lónyai it would be hard to come with the old BMW X5 prototype rallycar - because it burned to the ground at the "Baja Spain Aragon" towards the finish line.

Until now it was a big secret what "weapon" Lónyai will raise at his most important local race, the [ HUNGARIAN BAJA ], which will start this weekend in Papa / Hungary. Well, now it turns out he hires a HRX-Ford from the Dutch Wevers team.

"I received a lot of e-mails after the BMW burnt down – familiar and unfamiliar troops from abroad and from home, they all declared their sympathy, which is of course very gratified. But then... I was thinking what should I do at the Hungarian World Cup race – back than it looked like someone is going to rent the Nissan Navara – so I was thinking to rent a car from an experienced and professional team, which is still affordable," Lónyai reported.

"So I have choosed the Wevers Team, their Ford with a five-liter V8 engine. This is a technology developed in 2014, just awesome, it's like a spaceship. Incredible challenge will be to learn this car, not sure to succeed in only one competition. Although the car would be able to win this race, we have to keep in our mind that this is not the goal. With a similar result as last year I'd be happy," said Lónyai, who finished fifth last year, first among the Hungarian competitors.

Interesting fact that for the driver does not mean the car will be the only novelty, as his permanent co-driver Zoltan Garamvölgyi is the Hungarian Baja’s main organizer. So on this not exactly easy competition he is going to start with a new co-driver – this time the very well known and very successful Agnes Farnadi was chosen from the normal rally field.

They have been tested together and the driver feels there will be no problem in collaboration with the co-driver, she is a task-oriented person as he is, moreover, particularly concentrated, which is very important in a difficult race, like the Hungarian Baja. The military area of Veszprém is a common point between them, the rally field raced there as well and Lónyai began his cross country rally career right there.

"Fantastic opportunity that we can go back to the military area where in generally I make it well. We look forward to a good race, and not only because of the stages, but the extremely strong field. I'm sorry, that being such a good race Zoli can not come with me, but I will try my best in the competition," said Lónyai.

The former constructor and owner of the BMW X5CC, the Hungarian "Fazekas Team", has teamed up again: Fazekas will stand at the start line in Hungary with Albert Horn and his new BMW X6 prototype. The pair got the Hungarian Championship title, after that split their roads, but now they have decided to compete together again.

"I looked at the entry list, and based on that if we make it in the top ten, then I'll be satisfied with," Karoly Fazekas said. "And of course we want to be the best Hungarian team."

Could be a home field for him the military area in Veszprém (he is from Balatonfüred, which is only some kms away directly at the Lake Balaton), but says he raced rather little on. However, there is absolutely no problem with it.

"I like to compete more in open tracks like these, than running on a narrow road between trees. This can be seen on our timing, on the WRC-style stages we are usually quite fast. I hope this will be no different now," said Fazekas.

The former Hungarian Champion also revealed: He rebuilt the rear part of the BMW X6, (actually the rear suspension) which has been his constant care. They wanted something new, something unusual for their car at the beginning of the year, they built it, but by now it turned out does not work. So they returned to tradition, to the original suspension, which worked very well with the BMW X5. If it was good for the X5, also has to be good for the X6...
