The competition provides us with the opportunity to build connections with gifted students and experienced engineers, since hard-working specialists interested in innovation are particularly sought after at our company,” said Richárd Rozman, Director of Human Resources.

This year, 45 teams’ 70 vehicles will line up in the race.

The professional jury consisting of experts from the Hungarian automotive industry and the main sponsor, Audi Hungaria, will evaluate the vehicles according to different categories.

Today the participants made a visit to Audi Hungaria and gained some insight into engine production and vehicle assembly.
