Welcome to the 55. Mecsek Rallye!

The rally event with the greatest history in Hungary is to be organized for 55th time this year.

Dear fans, dear guests!

As the main patron of the race, I am very pleased that the 54th Mecsek Rally, which was re-organized last year after a year’s absence, has successfully returned to the race calendar. So much so that at the end of the rally season, the Hungarian National Motorsport Association chose it as the competition of the year.

And this gives new strength and impetus to organize a race that will be even more popular with the rally friends and, of course, the main characters, the competitors, by further developing best practices and eliminating any mistakes.

The Mecsek Rally is one of the biggest competitions in Hungarian motorsports, dating back more than half a century. It is an emblematic race not only for lovers of car racing, but also for the city, as Pécs has been hosting the best rally drivers on the continent for almost ten years.

As usual, in addition to the competitors of the Hungarian Rally Championship, the best of the Historic European Championship will arrive in Pécs again this year, providing a real curiosity for fans of motorsport with the wonders of generations. It is an honor, however, that we have the special responsibility that this year our race will be the only home-run European Championship race in the entire rally calendar.

This event is also of special importance to the city, because during the long weekend of the Mecsek Rally, life in Pécs always comes alive, many people visit Mecsekalja due to the competition. This year, Pécs will do its best to ensure that the fans get the best out of everything, and we are waiting for visitors with colorful programs in the main square of the city. We are also making specials this year as well, in the spirit of Pécs’ green aspirations, for example, electric cars will also play a role among the forerunners.

I am sure our city will once again expose itself and, as before, will enchant our guests this year. In addition to visiting the express sections, I encourage you to take a stroll through the city center, admire the stone-carved memories of our 2,000-year-old past, sit on the sunny terrace of a café and enjoy the city’s unique Mediterranean atmosphere! Experience in person that Pécs is open again and waiting for its guests!

I wish the spectators a rich cheering and pleasant relaxation, and for the competitors and the teams a sport-like fight and an accident-free competition!

Attila Péterffy
Mayor of the City of Pécs
