What is a Superspecial?

The Superspecial takes place on the first day of the competition, Friday 12 April in Királyszentistván. It is a stage, which is usually a built or artificially marked small track, and can also be circular. In many cases, it is also called a spectator lure stage. The Királyszentistván course will have two tracks at the same time, with one of the most exciting parts of the course being a tunnel over the other.
The first car will start at 18:05, the end of the programme can only be guessed, it will last until about 22:00.
At this venue, you can follow the race from four spectator points relatively close together, each with a great view of the track.
Remember to take your seat safely at the chosen spectator point 35 minutes before the start of the first cars. After that, no spectator movement on the track is allowed!

How is the race weekend structured?

The European Rally Championship (ERC) will take place over three days, Friday-Saturday-Sunday 12-13-14 April.
Over 100 competitors will start each day from the Service Park and return here at the end of the day.
On Friday there will be a Free Practice in Királyszentistván, followed by the ERC Qualification and the ERC Shakedown, then a Superenduro demonstration and the highlight of the day, the Superspecial, starting at 18:05.
On Saturday, the riders will complete three stages after leaving the Service Park: Hegyesd, Kislőtér and Várpalota. At these locations, there will be a morning and an afternoon lap, and at the end of the day, the riders will finish at the Service Park.
On Sunday, as on the previous day, after the Service Park, there will be three stages with a morning and an afternoon round: Iszka, Tés and Nagylőtér.
The end of the race and the announcement of the results will take place on Sunday at 18:20 at the Gyárkert in Veszprém.
There is an overlap in the programme of the speed stages, so the start time of the first car will be given for each programme. By the time the last car finishes a stage, the first car will have already started the next stage at a different location, so it is worth setting up your programme with this in mind.

How many venues are there?

The race starts each day from the Service Park, where cars return during the day and at the end of the day.
On the first day, Friday, the race will take place in Királyszentistván, on Saturday in three locations: Hegyesd, Kislőtér and Várpalota, and on Sunday in three more locations: Iskra, Tés and Nagylőtér. The results will be announced and the closing ceremony will take place in the Gyárkert in Veszprém.

When should you arrive on site?

In all cases, the start time of the first car will be given for the fast stages. It is important to note that there will be no spectator movement on the track for 35 minutes prior to the start time, so please make sure you are safely seated at the chosen spectator point by this time at the latest. As the spectator areas are often a 10-15 minute walk from the car park, a shuttle bus may be available to help you get there.

Where can I watch the race and how do I choose a spectator area?

We will set up spectator areas along the speedway sections, taking into account visibility and safety considerations, from where you can watch the race safely and comfortably. At the spectator areas, we will indicate which ones we recommend for people with children or families, the distance from which you can park and how to get to the venue. The spectator information for each stage also tells you how to get to your chosen spectator area.
At the venues, the green ribbon indicates the areas designated for spectators to move freely, and the red ribbon indicates the areas that are closed to spectators.
The cars are moving at high speed, so it is more important than ever to follow the signs for spectators and the instructions of the organisers at the venue.

What should/should not I take with me?

The speed stages of the race weekend will take place in a variety of terrain, but all will be exposed to the elements. Be sure to arrive in comfortable, closed shoes – hiking boots if possible on forest terrain – and dress in layers according to the weather that day. In some places you can expect dust and mud. At the spectator areas, we’ll indicate where you can expect to find refreshments, toilets and other facilities. Where there is no buffet, make sure you have water with you! You can bring food, water, soft drinks and alcoholic drinks under 5% with you wherever you go.
Beer benches and beer tables are available at the buffets, but feel free to bring a blanket or blanket, many people also have picnics.
If it’s sunny, be prepared with sun protection – sunscreen, hats, but mosquito and tick repellent and a good mosquito repellent can also do you good!
It’s worth coming with a charged phone as charging facilities will not be available at the venues!

What should I expect if I arrive with a child?

The European Rally Championship is an exciting event for adults and children alike, and the competition is a spectacular and exciting event for all genders and ages.
On Saturday and Sunday, children under the age of 12 can enter all speed stages and all venues free of charge, but it is important to note that you must purchase a Rally Pass ticket for them for £0!
For the Friday Superspecial and the preceding Friday programme in Királyszentistván and Gyártelep you can buy tickets at half price for children aged 4-12. Under the age of 4, admission is free.
If you are coming with children, we recommend you choose the priority spectator points: on Friday, choose spectator points 1 and 2 in Királyszentistván, on Saturday, choose spectator point 1 in Kislőtér Jutaspuszta, and on Sunday, choose spectator point 2 in Nagylőtér speed stage.
In each day’s programme, we have set up priority spectator points on one of the stages, where you can enjoy the race comfortably and safely if you are coming with children or a family. At these points we will have a buffet, toilets and merchandising shop. At the buffets you will be able to enjoy a beer at beer benches and beer tables.
It is important that you arrive in comfortable, closed shoes and layered clothing. Dust and mud may be present on the trails. If it’s sunny, bring sun protection, sunscreen and be sure to bring a hat for the little ones. Tick repellent is also recommended.
In good weather, feel free to bring a blanket or blanket, as many people picnic.
There will be no changing facilities on site, you can bring water and food with you wherever you go.
In many cases the venues are a 10-15 minute walk away, find out how to get to the viewing points before you go.
Green tape will be used to mark free areas for spectators and red tape to mark areas closed to spectators.
The cars are moving at high speed, so it is more important than ever to follow the signs for spectators and to follow the instructions of the organisers on site, especially with small children!

What services can I find at the venues?

The race will take place on all three days on gravel roads in out-of-town conditions.
Each day we have designated a speed section, where we have set up priority spectator areas with extended facilities.
You will find buffets, toilets and merchandising shops, beer tables and beer benches next to the buffets at these locations:
– on Friday in Királyszentistván at the spectator areas 1, 2
– Saturday at the Jutaspuszta spectator area in Kislőtér
– Sunday at the Nagylőtér, speedway 2, spectator area
At two spectator areas: in Királyszentistván and Iszkán shuttles will be available to help you get from the parking lot to the track.
At the spectator areas of the other speedway stages, the map shows where you can find a snack bar and toilets and where there are no services.

What should I wear for the start?

The speed stages of the race weekend will take place in a variety of terrain conditions, so be sure to arrive in comfortable, closed-toe shoes – hiking boots on forest terrain if possible – and dressed in layers for the day’s weather. You can expect dust and mud in some places.
If it’s sunny, be prepared with sun protection – sunscreen, hats, but mosquito and tick repellent and a good mosquito repellent can also do you good service!
It is advisable to come with a charged phone as charging facilities will not be available at the venues!

Rally safety: what to do/not to do, what to look out for?

Like all motor and motorsports, rallying has its dangers, but as organisers we will do our utmost to ensure that you are as safe as possible by following the markings and following the organisers’ instructions.
We have marked out spectator points along the fast stages where you can follow the race safely. You will find directions to these points and parking facilities in the spectator information section of the stage descriptions.
Along the courses, red tape indicates areas that are off-limits to spectators, and green tape indicates spectator areas where you can move freely and with freedom. Please take the signs for the restricted areas seriously. Often, what may appear dangerous to the lay eye may not be so to the sportsman’s eye, based on experience.
Some of the speed sections cross military territory, so it is particularly important to follow safety signs and organisers’ instructions.
If you are going to a spectator point where you have to cross the course, look for the crossing markings, where you will be guided to cross the course safely.
We have included the start time for the first cars in the programme, no spectator movement is allowed on the track until 35 minutes before this time, so please make sure you are safely seated at your chosen spectator point before then.

Where do I get the paid ticket?

Paid tickets will be sent by e-mail to the address provided. Please also check your Spam folder.
