Sunday at the Hungaroring Part 3 - Kiss takes third win on the trot

The final race of the weekend started bang on time. Compared to the 11 laps a couple of hours earlier, this one had double and even three times the action and excitement during the opening laps and towards the close.
Calvet was on pole with compatriot Janiec alongside; behind them were Faas and Halm.

Not only that; the individual times too kept dropping as the minutes ticked by, leaving local hero Kiss Norbi (MAN) on top with 2:18.864. Czech rival Adam Lacko (Buggyra Freightliner), MAN pilot Antonio Albacete (ESP), and six-times champion Jochen Hahn (Iveco, GER) were all a second and a half slower...
