FIM Rally

Budapest 1986

My first FIM Rally since Moscow in 1967.

This time took my MZ Trophy Sport. Totally trouble free run. Came back via the then Czechoslovakia and East Germany.

People forget that it was Hungary that first opened the Iron Curtain. They were giving out roses made from the barbed wire from the border at the Austrian crossing. I've always regretted not getting one.

Well remember the camp in the Olympic Park and the huge vats of wine on the last evening!
