After circuit racing (Suzuki Cup, RCM Cup, Skoda Octavia Cup champion) Gábor ran his first year in rally with his handbuilt Nissan Sunny Gti.
Tim participated in 10 rally events with his co-driver Tamás Tímár this year. The duo acquired the overall and category champion title of MARB Northern Region after finished 5th in Bózsva – Telkibánya Rally.
They became 3rd in MARB National (Eastern, Northern, Southern cat. overall) from nearly 120 participators. Also got 2nd place in 2000cc3 National.
During the season they collected 3 absolute and 4 category wins, also many podiums. The first season considered successful by Tim:
„ I have dissimiliar feelings over our season. Though we had race wins, we also had DNFs and unsuccessful events. We missed experience in these conditions, thats why whe ran into annoying mistakes. If we could run this championship from the beginning again I think we could achieve a better result. Do not misunderstand my words, I feel really blessed about my year, and I like to say huge thanks to everyone who supported me during this hard season, and made this whole thing possible. First of all to my family,to our handful sponsor background, to Tamás, my co-driver, and every friend of us.”
Gábor have plans for 2018 also, including a Rallye2 season, or Rallycross, not least turn back to track racing, which of course recommend a proper financial background.
Whatever happens, he’ll have the final challenge of this year, the Szilveszter Rallye, which he won in 2016.
