Hungarian Baja: Tecnosport e Berezovskiy all'attacco
La prova, settima nel calendario iridato, è organizzata da Garzone Racing Organisation Promotion Limited in collaborazione con la National Automobilsport Federation of Hungary (MNASZ) e verrà ospitata a Veszprem al Nyirád Motorsport Centrum.
Il percorso prevede circa 700 chilometri complessivi con 518km di prove speciali: sabato i settori selettivi saranno due da 175 chilometri, con partenza da Hajmasker e la gara partirà alle 7 mentre domenica la stessa prova verrà disputata al contrario e una sola volta con partenza alle 9 dal parco chiuso di Veszprém.
L'equipaggio kazako della Tecnosport si trova attualmente al comando della classifica di Coppa del Mondo con 139 punti complessivi contro i 117 di Emil Khneisser (UAE) e i 104 del russo Maxim Kirpilev. In Spagna – chiusa appunto con il secondo posto in T2, primo benzina - la vettura aveva dimostrato la sua affidabilità rallentata unicamente da problemi di esagerato consumo delle gomme che avevano colpito comunque un po' tutti i piloti, visto tra l'altro anche il nuovo regolamento FIA che impone solo dieci pneumatici in tutto per l'intera gara.
Just after the great satisfactions of Italian Baja and Baja Aragon it's coming the third Baja in just 50 days. The Hungarian Baja will start thursday in the afternoon in Veszprém and there will be all the famous drivers of the rally raid specialty, and among them the leader of T2 World Cup FIA, Denis Berezovskiy on the new Nissan Y62.
In the last weekend of July, at Baja Spain, Denis Berezovskiy and Ignat Falkov had climbed on the second step of the podium with the Tecnosport Nissan Y62 and they confirmed their lead in the World Cup FIA T2. Today, the Astana team composed from Berezovskiy-Falkov is ready to start with, exactly, the same warlike intentions. The Hungarian Baja is a race well-known to the experts of the rally raid specialty and this year will take place just during the central weekend of August. Thursday afternoon and friday morning, crews will start with the scrutineering and in friday afternoon, at 6 pm, will face a prologue of two kilometers and a half that will mark the official start of the race. The scrutineering time was scheduled for Berezovskiy thursday from 17 to 20 but his team manager did move the check at friday morning so they can make the shakedown on thursday.
The race, the seventh in the World Cup calendar, is organized by Garzone Racing Organisation Promotion Limited in collaboration with the National Federation of Automobilsport Hungary (MNASZ) and will be hosted in Veszprem at Nyirád Motorsport Centrum.
