rounds being held at the Hungaroring circuit this weekend, 12th & 13th June.
16 drivers have committed themselves to the full season which consists of eight rounds in seven
European countries.

With no title awarded during the Covid –hit 2020 campaign, the 2019 Champion Jochen Hahn will
be looking to add to his 6 race victories at the Hungaroring circuit but he will face stiff competition
from former Champions Adam Lacko, himself a six-time FIA ETRC race winner in Hungary and local
favourite Norbert Kiss who won three rounds last year at his home circuit before the season was
curtailed taking his tally to seven victories at the circuit located just outside Budapest.

World’s best female truck racing driver’s and a previous race winner at the Hungaroring will be
joined on the grid by Aliyyah Koloc who, at the age of 16 became the youngest ever FIA ETRC
entrant last year and she will be hoping to gain further experience in this year’s Championship.
