Like father, like son: Herczigs prepare for home ERC adventure

Must read

FIA European Rally Championship podium finisher Norbert Herczig will be joined on the Rally Hungary entry list by none other than his 17-year-old son Patrik.

Herczig Jr won the Super Touring section of the Hungarian Rallycross Championship in 2019 but is now focusing on a career in rallying – just like his famous father, a four-time national champion in their native Hungary.

Herczig Sr, who drives a Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 for MOL Racing Team, explained: “It will be the first time the two Herczigs will start in one race. He is a very clever boy, more smarter as I was in his age.”

Asked what advice he would give his son, Herczig Sr said: “We are watching together my onboard cameras from last year and I show him the tricky parts. But he is still a rookie in rally, he is just in his first year. The important thing for him is to gain experience and mileage.”

Herczig Jr will contest Rally Hungary from November 6-8 in a Ford Fiesta R2.
