ODT WINTERCAMP TRAINING GROUND TEASER
His career began with finishing the Road Atlanta race school in 1995 and afterwards he took a BMW race course in Imola. He first set off on the Dakar Rally in 1996 and he is preparing for his twelfth Dakar at the moment. He was the first Hungarian pilot (with Tamás Jakab copilot) who managed to accomplish the ‘marathon’ stages of the Dakar challenge and he is the only racer in the country who already conquered the Sahara seven times.
In 2010 Szalay and Bunkoczi grasped the Hungarian championship title – for the first time in their career – what was an outstanding achievement in the consistent field, and the heightening tendency is proven by the fact that in 2011 the pilot was close behind the first position on the international race.
