Show Notes

In 2005 Zengő Motorsport gave Norbert Michelisz, then an accomplished online racer, a test at the Hungaroring, his first of many big breaks. Fifteen years later, Bence Boldizs is preparing to follow in the wheel tracks of his illustrious compatriot with a season in the WTCR − FIA World Touring Car Cup.

But while Michelisz came to Zengő’s attention through his virtual exploits, Boldizs has impressed in real life, winning in the Zengő-conceived Hankook Racer Cup for Suzuki Swifts via success in various scholarships, before producing a “quite promising by the way” performance when he tested a CUPRA TCR for the Hungarian outfit, an achievement that has effectively earned him a WTCR ride in 2020.
