May 25, 2023 - The fastest weekend in Slavonia and Baranja has been announced at 998 Garage! The long-awaited 29th Osijek Street Race Show is taking place on May 27 and 28 at the Čepin - Osijek Sports Airport, and it's expected to gather around 200 competitors and about 6,000 visitors, making Osijek the centre of extreme sports for a weekend.

As SiB writes, the city of Osijek, the organization, and friends of the event contributed to one of the most visited sports competitions in Osijek and eastern Croatia in general. Deputy Mayor of Osijek Dragan Vulin, HAKS President Davorin Štetner, HAKS Motorsports Committee President Dragan Serden, and the main organizer and president of the "Slavonija" Auto Club Rudolf Kalkan announced the event at a press conference.

According to Rudolf Kalkan, we can expect the biggest Osijek Street Race Show to date: "This is also the 15th anniversary of Auto Club Slavonija, which makes this event even more significant!" Dragan Serden emphasized this special day for Street Race because this discipline was declared a sport in HAKS exactly eight years ago, and he expressed his satisfaction and love for the City on the Drava, to which he is always happy to return!

"The whole team is doing a great job; a lot of effort, sacrifices, sleepless nights, and a great amount of enthusiasm have been invested, without which this sport wouldn't even exist!" said Davorin Stetner. Dragan Vulin expressed great satisfaction and thanked the organizers for doing it all for the 29th time, which Osijek is proud of: "Osijek is a city of sports! This includes the Osijek Street Race Show. Here we also associate sport with tourism, where this event plays a big role in the number of overnight stays and visitors to this area. This is one of the events that makes Osijek a city!"

Spend the coming weekend surrounded by the fastest cars and motorcycles in a relentless test of strength! See you at the start line!
