How did they find each other with KB Autoteam?
We are a large family of riders. Tibor and I belong to this family. He’s in show jumping, I’m at home in gear driving. We have been organizing the World Equestrian Cup in the László Papp Spotarena in Budapest or for 15 years, where I am usually a starting judge, but other occasions have strengthened our sports friendship.
The feel of the Jeep fits absolutely with the drive. I stress that the idea was not born in my head. Tibor took on the role of KB Autoteam Jeep Ambassador and offered Wrangler for a year.
Did you convince a lot?
No. I had several reasons for yes. In 2021, the European Driving Championship will be in Budapest. The car is a great help in preparation. The Wrangler is excellent for touring and surveying marathon runs. The Jeep expresses a strong, raw, resilient, free feeling of life that I can identify with to the maximum.
What are your experiences so far?
For the first time I shot a short film with him on more serious terrain near our equestrian park in Domony. I was not disappointed. We did the same laps with the tooth and the car. Where the horses are, so is the Wrangler.
You are a hunter too. Could Wrangler have a role there?
It can be brought together, but I’m the hunter who’s more out in the woods. I typically roam on foot and watch wild exercise, rarely using a rifle. Approaching a wooded area, however, is an excellent Jeep. Although hunting is not characterized by red SUVs, they are sure to recognize it, says Zoltán laughing.
Really, why red?
Red appears in all gear that connects to me and the team. From the horse truck, through the clothes, through my terrain to the equipment of the horses, there’s the red. It’s good for the Wrangler anyway.
How is the EC in preparation?
I had a serious racing accident in the summer with rib fractures and bruises. I’m fine already, I’m training and I’m sitting on the buck again with my auxiliary drivers. Recently I won the four-tooth prize race in the Jászkarajenő season-closing gear driving competition, I finished 2nd in the obstacle course, 3rd in the marathon race, and finished 2nd in the overall race. Encouraging results.
