Our department, in collaboration with Mouldtech Kft and Robert Bosch Kft, is participating in the development of the Tipo 184 retro racing car. As part of the project, our colleagues, Dr. Máté Zöldy, Dr. Péter Harth, and Ádám Nyerges, along with Bálint Kocsis representing Robert Bosch Kft, were present at this year’s Silverstone Classic festival, where a version of the Tipo 184 racing car had its own booth. From Mouldtech Kft, Dávid Tímári, Róbert Zsédely, Benjámin Hegedűs, and Soma Sárosi attended.
England has a rich tradition in motorsports and preserving automotive heritage. At the festival, we had the opportunity to see the decades-long evolution of racing sports up close. First, in the paddock area, where teams were feverishly preparing for the races. Later, on the track, various categories saw daring pilots continuously making laps on the Silverstone asphalt. The area around the racetrack was filled with displays of beautiful, unique, and rare cars from local car clubs. Additionally, a separate tent showcased Formula 1 cars from recent decades. The Tipo 184 racing car fit perfectly into this environment and attracted a lot of attention. Its ’40s-inspired design was a breath of fresh air, as most racing cars present were from later eras.
We sincerely thank Mouldtech Kft for the opportunity to participate!
