According to the racers, the first two stages of the 10th HunGarian Baja were extremely tough. The MINIs are still leading the competition but however, Krysztof Holowczyc and Andreas Schulz won the Superspecial, Nani Roma and his co-driver Michel Perin has the advantage after the first stages. Among the Hungarians, the competition is really though. Pal Lonyai and Robert Nyeste only have a 1,5-minute-advantage compared to the second place.
It seems that either Nani Roma or Krysztof Holowczyc will win the FIA World Championship race at the HunGarian Baja. Roma took over the first place from Holowczyc and now he is forty seconds ahead of his rival.
“The tracks are extremely hard but our car is impeccable. I want to win every competition that I enter. This race is really important because Schlessel did not apply so I have the chance to get closer to him in the overall classification. But to be honest, I wish he was here.” – Nani Roma said.
The two MINIs are followed by Nunzio Coffaro and his navigator Daniel Meneses. Their biggest rivals are Miroslav Zapletal and Maciej Marton whom had a little technical problem.
“We have a little technical problem with the car but we will fix it for Sunday and I hope that we will be able to reach podium.” – Zapletal said.
Nani Roma leads in the overall classification
The Hungarian Championship is also really excited. Pal Lonyai and Robert Nyeste had a tough competition with Imre Fodor and Robert Nyeste. The latter pair leads the overall Hungarian classification but with only one point.“Our aim is to prove that we can compete with the best world-class racers. We dream of points yet but we hope that we will get there soon.” – Lonyai said happily.
Imre Fodor was fed up because he was hold up by a slower car at SS2.“We were slowed down by another car. Had it not been for this we could have had a tougher competition Pal but we will do everything to get closer to them on Sunday.” – Imre Fodor said.
