The spectacular stage of the WHB Győr Rally on the SZE campus attracted thousands of visitors

The first WHB Győr Rally was a huge success, with Széchenyi István University as an important venue. Thousands of visitors came to the high-speed stage, which took place mainly on the campus of Győr, and were treated to a spectacular race and special programmes. The winners of this race became the Hungarian champions, and the pair was also awarded a special prize by the university for winning the stage.

The Arrabona Rally Club, founded by the sport lovers of Győr, TRP Hungary and Mitko Hungary, together made an old dream come true between 8-10 September, when Hungarian rallying returned to Győr. And in more ways than one, as the competitors were greeted by special venues and thousands of enthusiastic fans. One of the most memorable venues of the WHB Győr Rally was undoubtedly the downtown speed stage, which took place partly on the campus of the Széchenyi István University, to huge interest.
