The academic year 2018/19 was opened with a motorcycle procession for the seventh occasion at the Conductive Elementary School and Dormitory of Pető András Faculty. In the framework of the event entitled “From four wheels to two wheels” almost 100 elementary school students were taken for a sightseeing tour in the streets of Budapest.
Several celebrities participated in the event, therefore the children had the opportunity to ride the motorcycle together with Gábor Talmácsi, world champion in motorcycle racing, Levente Harsányi, TV presenter, István “Koko” Kovács, world champion boxer, Győző Szabó and Roland Tóth actors and with Tünde Semmi-Kis, model and motor racer.
“It is a fantastic feeling to see the happiness on the children’s face as they are almost running towards the motorcycles and each of them is easily finding the most suitable place for himself/herself on the seats of the vehicles. It is good to see that year by year children with reduced mobility can enjoy motor riding in a more and more comfortable way.”, said Claudia Császár, the main organizer of the event.
The motor department of the Budapest Police Headquarters, the Motor Ambulance Services Foundation and the Groupama Insurance Company supported the event this year, too, and they enabled the safe conditions of the organization and realization of the event. Before the event the participating children were entertained by Honda-Safety Hungary’s driving technique safety simulation games and the games of Hungaroring-Miniring.
