|Hungarian Baja: The experienced, newcomer, brave woman and the beast.|
This year’s Hungarian Cross-Country Championship race is going to be very exciting in the car category. There is only one point difference between Imre Fodor, Attila Csato (Toyota Motorsport Hungary) and Imre Varga, Ferenc Szegedi (Varga Racing Team) so the battle will be tough between them. So that is why the latter duo has worked a lot in order to get back their first position.
"This race is extremely important for us because of the tripled points. After this race there will only be two sprint races and then the season is over. We will do everything from our power to achieve a good result," said Imre Varga, who is the only Hungarian who has already taken part in all Hungarian Bajas.
The Cargo Racing Team is facing its biggest challenge. This is the first time when Antal Fekete and his navigator Gyorgy Toth would take part in a FIA competition with their Overdrive Toyota Hilux. So they would like to prove.
"We have taken part in many sprint races this season but this is different. We have never taken part in such a big competition. I have heard so many positive things so I am looking forward to taking part in it. This will be a big challenge for us but we will see our development," Antal Fekete said.
The only woman, in this category, will be Nikolett Szoke, who will be Zoltan Kaposi’s (Hunter Racing) navigator. They will take part with a whit Nissan. "The Hungarian Baja is on the top of the season. Unfortunately we could not finish the race last year so I hope we will be luckier this year. We are really motivated," Kaposi said.
It seemed that after the Silk Way Rally, Miklos Kovacs and his navigator, Peter Czegledi will not be able to take part in the Baja. They had some problems but they managed to service their Scania. But thanks to the hard work, they will be able to compete at the 10th edition.
“I am very happy that we can race at the Hungarian Baja again. We do not have too much chance to race in Hungary so this time we would like give an unforgettable memory to the Hungarian spectators," Miklos Kovacs, who won the Hungarian truck championship in 2010, said.
