Team MRF Tyres with strong takeaways from Rally Hungary

26.10.2021: A competitive result and data gathered from round seven of the FIA European Rally Championship Team MRF Tyres successfully completed the data and development exercise at the FIA European Rally Championship at Rally Hungary.

A competitive result and data gathered from round seven of the FIA European Rally Championship
 




Team MRF Tyres successfully completed the data and development exercise at the FIA European Rally Championship at Rally Hungary.



The day’s action saw seven stages and 78.83km of action on the unique tarmac roads in north-east Hungary that took in forest and farming paths.



Simone Campedelli and Tania Canton were flying the flag for Team MRF Tyres in their Skoda Fabia Rally2 Evo and started the day in eighth position.



The aim of this rally was to gain data for the development of the tyres, as MRF Tyres looks forward to further tarmac developments into 2022.



The rapid development of the MRF Tyres tarmac product is aimed to pay dividends into next year.



The Sunday action in Hungary saw high speeds with, the MRF Tyres duo pushing on the super-fast stages, clocking average speeds of more than 120km/h over a stage.



Throughout the rally, the MRF Tyres ran faultlessly with the tarmac tyres proving to be more than a match for the rough tarmac and gravel sections that this rally provides.



Campedelli and Canton were consistent throughout the day and were able to move up the field, moving into fifth place by the end of the rally.



Nil Solans and Marc Marti did not start the day.



The FIA European Rally Championship now has just one round to go, on the tarmac surface of the Rally Islas Canarias.



The Spanish Island offers yet another different type of tarmac surface with smooth and flowing tarmac on offer.



In the meantime, Team MRF Tyres will not rest with the aggressive testing regime and the final round of the Italian Gravel Rally Championship (CIRT) with the 12th Liburna Terra where Paolo Andreucci and Rudy Briani have an outside chance of becoming champions.



The final round of the FIA ERC will take place from 18-20 November.




Quotes



Simone Campedelli, Driver, Skoda Fabia Rally2 Evo.



“Rally Hungary was a challenging rally. The speeds were very high and the tarmac was unique. We tried many things with the tyres to get the data we needed.”



“I also pushed a lot through the rally and particularly on stage 12, I enjoyed the drive and my performance with the MRF Tyres. In the dark, I was on the limit. The long straights on the limiter and into a tight corner, there was no margin for error.”



It is my first time in Hungary, it is a beautiful rally. Warm, people, warm fans. I would like to thank everyone at Team MRF Tyres for their work at this rally and I am looking forward to the final rounds of the season with the Liburna Terra and Rally Islas Canarias. I am happy to bring the car home and for now, I am happy.”
