Händelse: 2005-10, A great avent took place in October 2005 when my friend call me and asked if i could take a trip to Hungary from Scania/Gothenborg with a citytruck/hookloader from Gothenborg to a racingcourt, Euro-Racing Ring in a town called Örkény, located 50 kilometers south of Budapest, Hungary. And one more truck was sent from Scania Södertälje/Sweden, a citytruck/Dibustrationunit. Both trucks were equiped with allison automatic transmission, and Allison were also the customer to this trip were they took alot of different units with their transmissions installed to the racing track to introduce it in eastern europe as well making a video and tv-program about it that a english company where there and made. The trucks where there one week at location fore test driving and showing how the transmission work in reality and let everybody feel the differance of an ordinary transmission. It was as well dumpers transported there from Austria and firetrucks from Germany and so on so it was a big event. Anyway me an Matts from Scania/Södertälje meet up at the ferrycamp TT-Line in Trelleborg/Sweden and rolled on the ferry to Rostock/Germany from where we made the trip down trough out Germany-Cseck Republica-Slovakia-Hungary, and this is our story.
