Day #28 - Kosice to Budapest (380km)

Posted on 10th July, 2016

Day #28 - Kosice to Budapest (380km)

Rally STATS:

Day: 9hrs 42mins (Total 214hrs 39mins) Overall Position: 15 Class Position: 4

Great night in Kosice, lively city centre, lots of pavement restaurant, very nice 3 course meal, £30 for two.

We woke to heavy rain that soon cleared and then we were hit with 33c of heat and unbroken sunshine. Hard on the car and the drivers. Richard did the 4 time trials and I drove the route . About 470km of lovely countryside and friendly people . On the whole journey the locals have been so supportive of the rally - not one bad incident just support. Hungarian roads remind me of Russian roads in part - poorly maintained in so many places. 

More speed tests on appallingly rough Tarmac, poor Volvo is taking a beating. Lots of woods, small mountains and villages, a little shabby to start but improving as we got closer to Budapest.

Can't believe we are entering our final week! 
First time trial of the day

Tight border control as we enter Hungary - not 

What a welcome at our very late lunch stop that lasted 13 minutes!
We think it was an excuse to display the cars again.
Budapest at last . Day 28 done! 
Rest day tomorrow although car maintenance may take up part of the day.....we will do our car maintenance and hopefully see some sights. The diff needs inspecting and all oils and pads changing. We will ask the mechanics for advice on the diff, our car builder, Amazon Cars, have sent over some parts just in case. — at Kempinski Hotel
