Five members of the North American Amateur Drivers Association are in Budapest, Hungary getting ready to clash with the harness racing Hungarian Amateurs in a race on Friday, (Sept. 1) and one on Saturday,(Sept. 2) The team consisting of Joe Faraldo, Alan Schwartz, Peter Kleinhans, Paul Minore and Bob Davis arrived in Budapest on Monday and are the guests of their counterparts and prior to the competition they have been treated to the wonders and history of Hungary. Below is from NAADA team leader, Joe Faraldo. "Buda, the earlier settled portion of this city established in 1245, was named after Attila the Hun's brother, and was joined with Pest a town on the other side of the beautiful Danube to become the capitol city of a Budapest. We are not in The Grand Budapest Hotel since it only exists in the movies. We landed in the Hotel Budapest safe and sound on Monday morning. Treated to a welcome dinner the first night by the Hungarian's team leader and an old friend Tamas Keleman. "Godollo castle was the first stop on Tuesday. A detailed tour was arranged and our guide whose knowledge of the castle and history of the Austro-Hungarian Empire was exceptional in every detail, made the tour much more meaningful. After that we were off to The Lazar Equistrian Park which is 35 km from Budapest, in the heart of Domonyvolgy and is owned by the coach driving champions Vilmos and Zoltan Lazar. "The resort nestles among the picturesque lakes of the Godollo Hills and is home to the champion carriage horses in Europe. There are two trophy rooms and the Lazar brothers have won enough events to pack those rooms to the ceiling. The obstacle courses these men steer their four charges through against the clock demands very high talented driving skills . No wonder the horsemanship demonstrated there made us feel just a bit inferior as these pros, schooled, no doubt by the brothers, teamed four at high speeds while perched standing atop two in the second row. At other times riders performed fetes with horses that must have taken years to perfect. Just getting them used to the crack of bull whips above their heads, to sitting them down on their bottoms was amazing. "The Park also has an excellent restaurant and from there a trip to the "Las Vegas" casino, a stop at the Buda Palace and a nitecap at the Gresham Palace topped off the eve of the all important draw for the Friday and Saturday's races in the Hungarian American Friendship competition. "In Hungary there are only 500 trotters in the entire country but their industry is hard at work with features surrounding the races. Food trucks, entertainment for kids and adults and beer, plenty of beer. by Joe Faraldo with John Manzi

For the second time in as many months members of the North American Amateur Drivers Association (NAADA) will be traveling to Europe to again compete in an International Friendship Competition this time against their harness racing counterparts from Hungary. Races are slated at Kincsem Park in Budapest in early September. "It's been over 25 years since NAADA has competed in Hungary, which by the way, was the site of the World Cup of Amateur Racing last year," noted NAADA president, Joe Faraldo. "In those races Hannah Miller was the overall point leader until the final day of competition when the Italian amateur finished just one point better than her total. Still, a second place finish among the 12 participating countries was the best showing ever by an American in the prestigious World Cup of Amateur Racing." Although the upcoming races in Budapest can't be compared to the World Cup events still the participants are excited about the competition. Those competing for team USA will be Alan Schwartz (586 career wins), Peter Kleinhans ( 54 wins) Bob Davis (30 wins) and Paul Minore (89 wins) along with team leader, Joe Faraldo (143 wins), who won three races abroad-- including one at Vincennes in Paris-- when the Americans recently competed on European soil in both France and Italy. But the Hungarians will be no pushover. Among their drivers is Andrea Fazekas, one of the top amateurs in Hungary, and for that matter, in all of Europe. (she is pictured here driving her father's Ollyan Nincs winning a Free For All trot at Kincsem Park) Supplying support for Ms. Fazekas in the upcoming Friendship Competition will probably be Andrea Naqyvari, Tamas Bencze, Viktoria Kelemen, Sandor Hegedus, and Tamas Tanczer According to Budapest Trotting Association president Karog Kotun, they have a wonderful facility at Kincsem Park where there are three tracks; one at 1200 meters for the harness races, along with a dirt and turf course for the thoroughbreds. Karoj and his team also have a fine website as does their racetrack Kincsem Park: Action and/or further news can be followed on the following webites www.ugeto.com www.nlkft.hu by John Manzi for NAADA
