The 7th International KTM Festival wrapped up three days intense riding fun when more than 850 riders packed up their beloved machines and broke camp to conclude the biggest and most successful Orange Family event in the company's history.
Thank you Hungary! Thank you Hungaroring! A great host country and a great cooperation with the staff of one of the world's premier international racing circuits. Around 1200 participants leave the KTM Festival, taking with them great memories of a packed program of events and three days of continual riding fun. KTM enthusiasts tested themselves on everything from the challenging curves of the Formula One circuit to the tricky Enduro track, from the challenging jumps of the Motocross course to the asphalt surfing on the Supermoto track. They had the unique opportunity of riding together with the KTM factory riders and, in turn, the KTM international stars had their share of riding fun exchanging their machines for some cross discipline experiences on the tracks.
A real international family
That the Orange Family now goes far beyond its Austrian roots was clear by the turnout of festival participants from no less than 40 countries. More than 25 importers came from as far away as Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Hong Kong, United Arab Emirates, Morocco and Venezuela. They joined 60 international journalists and riders from Austria, host country Hungary, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Finland, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The youngest active participant was just four years old, the oldest 62.
The Festival concluded with a blue ribbon event, the Super Duke Battle of the Nations with 38 participants testing themselves out on the world famous circuit with Finland taking first place honours for their country.
