rally hungary, 6-8 October 2023
After a year’s break, the FIA European Rally Championship returned to Hungary in 2023. The prestigious event was held in and around the Zemplén Hills and Nyíregyháza, between 6 and 8 October. The 2023 event was centred in Nyíregyháza, where a downtown stage was held but the field also visited Rabócsiring in Mariapócs as part of a superspecial stage. The event was the 2023 season finale, which marked the 70th anniversary of the series. There was no shortage of successful drivers in 2023, as the cream of European rallying decided to compete in the Zemplén event, including the eventual winner, Mads Ostberg.
