Zamárdi agrees to host air race

Zamárdi on the southern shore of Lake Balaton will host the Hungarian part of the Red Bull Air Race series this year on July 13-14 after Budapest mayor István Tarlós said he would no longer issue a permit for the event.

Zamárdi mayor Gyula Csákovics said the town has nearly 15 years of experience in co-ordinating large-scale events.

Apart from the race itself, a variety of programmes will be on offer for families during that weekend.
