Former MotoGP Rider Talmacsi Adding Two Wheels

2007 125cc World Champion and former MotoGP rider Gabor Talmacsi is moving to four wheels in 2012, switching to rallying in his native Hungary.

Talmacsi, 30, will drive a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX in the Hungarian Rally Championship, which includes a round of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge, seen as a rival to the struggling World Rally Championship.

The motorcycle racing career of Talmacsi flamed out after he finished sixth in the Moto2 World Championship in 2010, a year after he floundered to 17th place in the standings in his only season of MotoGP.
