Stage description

Until the mid-2000s, this location was known as a typical super-special stage, and on the occasion of this year’s Rally Hungary, the synchronized track will be revived. On this section, the asphalt and gravel surfaces alternate, there are also jumps on the course line, as well as a characteristic bridge where the two tracks cross each other and practically one racing car passes over the other while it goes through the tunnel. It is a spectacular, characteristic point, and the spectator zones can also be well designed.

Saturday Special Stages

13 April 2024

Hegyesd

Length: 15,3 km
Road closure: 6:48
Complete road closure: 9:18
SS2 – 1st car start: 9:48
SS5 – 1st car start: 15:17

Stage description

This stage is slightly different from the other typical Veszprém Rally courses. The first 500 meters after the start are similar to tracks hosted at shooting ranges, as there are rocky, “throwing” parts, and spectators will also be able to see this section of the stage. After that, the competitors race on a very high-quality road surface reminiscent of the previous Szombathely Rally. This will be the fastest stage of the rally. It takes place almost all the way through the forest, it is not possible to have a clear view and it is a nature preservation area, so we would like to ask everyone to really only stay at the designated viewing point, not to go further inside. The end of the section is a military area, where military activity also takes place, so it is also an area closed to spectators.

Stage description

This is the longest sprint stage of the race. It’s a technical track, there are some small jumps, but it contains 3-4 parts that are so fast that the cars will be on the limiter. As the name suggests, this is a military shooting range with a lot of open space and some wooded areas.

Information

Few kilometers before the finish line, the Jutaspuszta section, is a huge, flat area that will be a spectator zone throughout. Fans can see a very large area here, with turns and jumps. It is worth visiting this viewing point, hospitality and services await the spectators.

Featured spectator area in Jutaspuszta: the Northern Ring Road at the Jutaspusztai exit – towards Kisréti Street. Parking is available approx. from the viewing point. 200 m away.

Spectator area 1 and 2: Arriving from Márkó, it can be reached by walking along the course from the direction of the Start (spectator point 1 is approx. 600 m, spectator point 2 approx. 1.5 km walk).

Spectator area 3: From Márkó in the direction of Hárskút, it can be reached by walking about 2.3 km from ticket sales point 2.

Since you can park along the road here, we ask that you pay extra attention to your safety and that of your companions!

Road closure: 9:04
Complete road closure: 11:34
SS4 – 1st car start: 12:04
SS7 – 1st car start: 17:33

Stage description

This section starts and ends at the border of Várpalota: the characteristic of the course is that it is almost like a circle, the start and the finish are separated by only a few hundred meters. It contains parts that are easily accessible and well-viewed for spectators at several points with spectacular turns, which will probably loosen up by the second lap and deep ruts will form. The interesting thing about this area is that on weekdays, the soldiers practice here with cannons, some with tanks, and there is also a winch house, from which they pull different targets on a wire rope course and shoot at them with cannons.

Road closure: 7:35
Complete road closure: 10:05
SS9 – 1st car start: 10:35
SS12 – 1st car start: 15:07

Stage description

The stage takes place on a wonderful forest road in a very beautiful environment. The road is of good quality, the turns follow each other on the trail, so it is very technical, but also fast-paced, so the rhythm is very good. It will be one of the competitors’ favorites, but the top layer of the surface is loose, so the track will be very slippery. This will be a special challenge for the competitors.

The so-called Római-fürdő is also located near the stage, which is a very popular hiking spot, so watching the race can even be combined with hiking. In this case, we recommend that you approach the Római-fürdő from the direction of Bakonynána, one of the viewing points is located a few hundred meters from there.

Information

This stage is one of the most beautiful stages of the Sunday schedule, and perhaps even of the entire rally. The winding road runs deep in the forest, which can be reached from several small viewing points.

If you like the forest environment, put on your hiking boots, combine the rally experience with a little walk in the forest and definitely visit this section! Ideal for small groups of friends and nature-loving rally fans.

On this section, due to the terrain conditions, we do not prepare a buffet or toilets at any of the viewing points!

Stage description

It is one of the signature locations of the rally, which can almost be compared to the Acropolis Rally, which is included in the calendar of the World Championship. It’s a very complex track, it’s expected to seriously decimate the field, because this section will test the cars the most. On the second round, the so-called Power Stage, there will be very deep ruts, rocks that may not have been visible in the first round will also appear, the competitors will have to pay close attention to them on the inside bends, as they often get punctures here every year. There are several jumps on the course, they can throw very big, and they are characterized by spectacular, fast turns.
