I went to the 50th Mecsek Rally in Hungary to witness the golden anniversary of one of the country’s biggest domestic motorport events. It was short but went with a bang. A literal one.
The 49th Mecsek Rally in South-West Hungary turned up with a relatively small field, but the Historic European Championship still had some machines to witness.
Intoxicating. Mixing the countryside, the morning dew and mist with the sights, sounds and scent of sideways rally cars is intoxicating. This was one of those moments.
