Beetles and Jaguars will also be moving under the trees of the Great Forest on 25-26 May for the country’s biggest automotive show.

For the fourth time, Debrecen Drive will offer colourful activities for all ages. On the eve of the festival, the popular Night Drive will offer breathtaking stunts.

The participants of the fourth Debrecen Drive opened the press conference of the event in style, with a game of “car football”. The city’s youngest major event will take place on the last weekend of May, on no less than 50,000 square metres. The organisers stressed that the event is family and shopper-friendly.

”Our basic ars-poetica is that if you buy a ticket here, which, by the way, for a family of five is currently 9490 forints (I think everyone agrees that it’s not a high amount), you don’t have to pay for anything afterwards. All the elements of the experience, at least once, are included in the ticket,”  Managing Director of Debrecen Campus Nonprofit Közhasznú Kft. Péter Miklósvölgyi says. 

800 different vehicles, a collection of small pedal cars and new saloon cars will also move into the heart of the Great Forest at the Debrecen Automotive Festival, visitors will be able to see curiosities that are a curiosity in Europe as well.

Mayor László Papp stressed that the city will become the centre of the European automotive industry in the coming years, which is why it is a pleasure that this event has become part of the event season. “”Debrecen is not only becoming a citadel of the automotive industry, but also of the future of the automotive industry, as the centre of electromobility is being developed here, not only in Central Europe, but practically throughout Europe. And then we come back to the Drive, because the Drive is absolutely suitable for showing the future of the automotive industry, the automotive industry, and for outlining a vision of the future,” the mayor said. Thanks to the University of Debrecen’s Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, the automotive show will be accompanied by a conference and a professional forum.

“The conference will focus on electromobility and sustainability, which is obviously a key task and issue for the coming decades,” Chancellor of the University of Debrecen Zoltán Bács emphasised. Adrenalin, smoke, “tyre-rolling”, the Night Drive Show will be back on the eve of the 24th of May. Schaeffler’s Mini Drive will bring the world of Formula 1 racing to the little ones.

“It was very important that really all sectors will be present, whether it is companies, car dealerships, or novelties that not everyone may meet or may encounter in their lives, and I encourage everyone to come and see and take advantage of the opportunity to see things here that you may not be able to see anywhere in the next period,” Managing Director of Schaeffler Debrecen Péter Szabó summarised.

Last year, almost 35,000 visitors came to the country’s largest automotive show. This year there will also be unique events such as the “Celeb run” and the Trans-Sped forklift truck race. Read more here: Debrecen Drive
