Rally Hungary added to FIA ERC Junior calendar

22.07.20

Rally Hungary has been added to the FIA ERC1 Junior Championship and FIA ERC3 Junior Championship calendars for 2020, hosting the penultimate rounds of both from 6-8 November.

 

Based in city of Nyíregyháza in the north east of the country, Rally Hungary replaces the postponed 50th Barum Czech Rally Zlín on the ERC1 and ERC3 Junior schedules.

The inclusion of Rally Hungary means both young driver championships will be contested over five rounds, albeit with competitors counting their best four results. Three rounds will take place on asphalt with two events on gravel.

Rally Hungary joined the FIA European Rally Championship for the first time in 2019 when it hosted the thrilling three-way overall title decider between former ERC3 Junior champion Chris Ingram, Alexey Lukyanuk and Łukasz Habaj.

Using sealed-surface countryside stages, plus fan-friendly tests at the Rabócsiring rallycross circuit and through the streets of host city Nyíregyháza, Rally Hungary provided an exciting challenge for ERC drivers with current ERC1 Junior recruits Erik Cais and Callum Devine among those in action last season.
