The opening round of the Hungarian Onroad Championships took place in Pecs on the Easter weekend. The club, which is the biggest and most active onroad club in Hungary, prepared the track nicely for this event but unfortunately it started to rain on Thursday and it seemed it was never going to stop. Finally it finished Sunday morning, just in time for the start of qualification. The conditions were difficult, the track was slippery while the temperature was super cold around 5°C and very windy.
In the 1/10 category it was Gergely Cseko who set the pace early on. Starting from pole he set new track record for a single lap during the final. Thanks to this driving style he run out of fuel at the 10min mark but get back to the lead shortly after he restarted and won the 30min final by 4 laps.
1. Gergely Cseko – Serpent 733-TE / RB Concept T11RC
2. Simon Ciudan – Sheperd V10 / Sonic V.12T
3. Gabor Laszlo – Xray NT1 / Novarossi Flash
In the 1/8 category Tamas Hegedus was dominating the field and grabbed the number 1 starting position for the final. After the start he continously opened the gap but ran into problems at around halfway. Then Gergo Timar took over the lead and never looked back and brought home the victory.
1. Gergo Timar – Serpent 966-TE / MAX XL9

3. Jozsef Farkas – Kyosho Evolva / Novarossi Flash
The 1/10 200mm Stock category, which means mandatory stock engines (RB Concept Touring Junior or Novarossi N12T1) has been gaining popularity lately. The much reduced costs on engines and the more equal level of playing field makes this category a good option to start nitro onroad racing. It was Zsolt Pinter who TQ’ed and won the race easily. The race for the rest of the podium spots remained opened and changed several times during the final.
