Peti Sebestyén, 27, has been competing in the World Supersport Championship (WorldSSP) since 2018, last year his best result was the sixth place with the fully Hungarian-owned OXXO Hungary Yamaha-TothTeam, and he ended the season in 13th place. With the help of HUMDA, he will continue his career at the Evan Bros Racing Team from the end of July, where he will receive his own professional staff.
“I’m very glad I got the chance to prove it.” This is how I can continue the hard and dedicated work that has brought results over the years. That is why, of course, I am grateful to OXXO Racing. I will do my best to take HUMDA to the next level. It is an honor to compete with the best team in the category. In the coming weeks, I will focus on training as it is a serious challenge to join the WorldSSP field in the race at the end of July, but I look forward to the tasks with confidence. My goal is to stand on the podium in one of the races of the season – Peti Sebestyén pointed out.
– One of the key goals of HUMDA Magyar Autó-Motorsport Fejlesztési Rendnök Zrt. This talent search work is multifaceted and requires a great deal of attention, as we have to make great decisions based on a holistic set of criteria. Technical sports require a lot of financial resources, so after thorough work, we need to select the few athletes who have the opportunity to advance their careers and professional development. We see an opportunity in Sebestyén Peti to move up in the coming years. We hope that based on his results, Superbike could be the next station in his career after the World Supersport Championship. In the meantime, the preparatory works for the Hajdúnánás race track are already underway, it would be good if in a few years Peti Sebestyén could prove it to the Hungarian public – pointed out Balázs Weingartner, President and CEO of HUMDA Zrt.
– It gives an competitor an incredible plus to be able to compete in front of a domestic audience. Unfortunately, this was not given to me, but forty thousand Hungarians accompanied Brno to the Czech Republic to several incredible races. It felt like I was riding a motorcycle in my country. I am confident that Peti Sebestyén and the riders of the future will be able to reap victories on a Hungarian track, and due to the enthusiastic encouragement of our fans, they will sometimes be able to finish several places ahead – emphasized Gábor Talmácsi, the 2007 world champion of the MotoGP series.
The Evan Bros Racing Team is a two-time world champion team, one of the strongest players in the Supersport World Championship right now. The leader of the team, Fabio Evangelista, noticed the Hungarian rider already after Peti Sebestyén’s first world championship season.
– I am very happy that Peti Sebestyén joins our team and we start a new, joint work from the Assen race. I’ve been monitoring his performance for a few years now, full of untapped opportunities that I hope will be brought out of it with the team. You have the best possible package at your disposal, we work with very experienced professionals, I think you can fit in after a short time. I would like to sincerely thank HUMDA for their efforts. I know that Hungarian motorsport wants to expand in the coming years and I am honored to be a part of this project – emphasized Fabio Evangelista, head of the Evan Bros Racing Team. The team was formed in 1985, made their debut in the Italian CIV Supersport Championship in 2013, then made their debut at the World Supersport Championship in 2016 and was already on the podium in the first race with their Italian driver. By 2019, they had already become world champions and their biker was also in second place in the overall standings. In 2020, they achieved another World Cup victory and broke a number of records in the category. The two-time world champion team will compete this year with Steven Odendaal of South Africa, who won 4 of the first 6 races. As a teammate of Steven Odendaal, Peti Sebestyén joins the Italian squad.
The two best-known world championship series in speed racing are Superbike and MotoGP. While in the latter, pilots compete on prototype engines, the Superbike World Championship features tuned versions of street sports engines. The middle category of the Superbike World Cup is Supersport, i.e. WorldSSP, where participants go on 600cc machines. There will be ten more rounds at the World Championships this year, with the exception of Donnington to see two WorldSSP races every weekend.
