Kiss is hat-trick hero on home soil

18 October 2020

Norbert Kiss completed a hat-trick of victories in his home race at the Hungaroring this afternoon as he took the third race win of the weekend.

Kiss who started from eighth picked up his competitors one by one and by the end of the first lap he was already in third, putting the pressure on Steffi Halm. He made quick work of the German and pressed on to catch up with Anthony Janiec, who had taken the top spot from Calvet in the first few corners.

The Hungarian made short work of the Lion Truck Racing driver and went past him on the start finish straight to drive home another win, making it a hat-trick for the Révész Truck Racing Team driver on his home soil. 

Jochen Hahn secured another podium after working his way up the field from sixth on the grid to finish second. The German driver has shown great form all weekend and leaves Hungary with a total of three podiums.

Anthony Janiec who started from second, went straight to the outside of pole sitter Téo Calvet to try and get round his fellow Frenchman which he managed to do in the second corner to take over the lead. He pulled away from the field but couldn’t hold off a charging Kiss. He got under pressure again halfway through the race as Jochen Hahn caught up with him, and he eventually finished third.

Adam Lacko  displayed great speed in race 4, picking up several of his competitors. He caught up with Steffi Halm on the last lap and the Czech driver was determined to take the place. Halm put up an impressive fight but in the end Lacko got the upper hand and finished fourth with Steffi taking another spot in the Top 5.

Buggyra Zero Mileage driver Téo Calvet added another win to his Goodyear Cup tally to round up a successful weekend in Hungary. The French racer had some great wheel-to-wheel battles throughout the weekend and has demonstrated great speed and grit.

Antonio Albacete showed some great racing in the final race of the weekend. He was part of a three way battle with Téo Calvet and tankpool24 driver Steffen Faas. He made his way past the German and put the pressure on the young Frenchman, looking for a gap to get past. Calvet held on to the position and Albacete had to settle for seventh.

Steffen Faas took home another podium in the Goodyear Cup as he finished second behind Calvet and Clemens Hecker completed the podium in third.

Luis Recuenco lost out on a top spot in the promoters cup in the closing stages of the race, when he went wide, which allowed Hecker to get through and he then also got hit with a drive through penalty for track limits.

Aliyyah Koloc didn’t see the chequered flag in the last race as she had to retire her Freightliner with some issues.
