Zoltán Hangodi and his Yamaha HQ Buggy is 12th in the World Cup classification after Leg 1 of HunGarian Baja, fifth round of the Hungarian Championship and seventh round of the World Cup.
Weather conditions were once more not favourable for HQ Racing: Yamaha HQ Buggy is not big friends with rain and mud. Despite this Zoltán Hangodi finished the 55 km opening special in the 12th position which can be considered very good in the star studded field.
“There were parts where I drove really well, in fact I shouldn’t be unhappy with the 12th time today, but still I lost a lot of time due to rain, mud and lack of light. The Fedima tyres that we used for this special worked very well, I could have been much faster but I simply couldn’t see anything. Overall it was OK, I enjoyed the stage, just the service time was a bit short,” Hango said.
On Saturday another four special are scheduled; the event ends with a prizegiving ceremony during the evening.
