Révész Racing

Norbert Kiss is not only one of Hungary's greatest ever racing drivers, he has carved out a reputation as the fastest driver of his generation in the Goodyear FIA ETRC, consistently outperforming his rivals and maintaining an unmatched level of excellence.

A double champion in 2014 and 2015 Kiss' career actually began on the racing simulator, where his exceptional skills quickly gained recognition. The Hungarian got picked up by a team and transitioned to real-world racing in 2005 with a brief stint in the Opel Astra Cup before winning the Renault Clio Cup in Hungary at his very first attempt.

Further success followed in 2007, when he took the Seat Leon Cup after a dominant display, and he followed up the feat in 2008, taking the double with another impressive performance. By now Kiss had made a name for himself, securing another national championship in the popular Suzuki Swift category, while he also tried his hand in single-seaters, turning heads in the Formula Renault 2-litre category, winning both championships in the same year.

Having honed his skills and achieved success in various racing disciplines, Norbert Kiss transitioned to truck racing in 2011 with the Hungarian OXXO Racing team, embarking on a new chapter in his motorsport career.

Kiss learnt the ropes quickly though and scored his first win in 2011 in Jarama and followed up with double wins again in Jarama and Le Mans Bugatti the following year. In 2013 he finished fourth in the standings and by 2014 he was a major threat to the established drivers, winning the title with nine victories.

He defended his title brilliantly in 2015 with a record-breaking campaign in which he scored a remarkable 19 race wins.

Kiss was on the way to the hat-trick in 2016, but to the surprise of many, Kiss elected to change teams and switched to join the tankpool24-Racing squad, where he finished fifth in the standings with his Mercedes-Benz challenger.

In 2017 Kiss stayed at tankpool24-Racing where he had his eye on that third title. Despite being a dominant force and consistently one of the top qualifiers throughout the season, he only finished third in the final standings. In the two years that followed, Kiss’ struggles continued and with only one race win and not a single pole position the Hungarian’s urge for change was imminent.

The tables turned in 2020 when Kiss started talks with Mr. Révész, owner of the Hungarian Révész Group and they joined forces to build the brand-new Révész Racing team.

The team's debut year was strong in a shortened 2020 season due to the pandemic, with Kiss scoring four wins and two podiums, re-establishing himself as one of the main contenders a very competitive fire-red MAN truck.

Kiss utterly dominated the 2021 season with an incredible pace, securing 10 out of 12 possible pole positions and 11 wins. Continuing his impressive performance into 2022, Kiss was yet again in a league of his own, claiming his fourth Goodyear FIA ETRC title with 16 race wins.

His 2023 title defence started with a heartbreak, as Kiss suffered a mechanical failure at the season opening race in Misano. Putting the set-back aside, the Hungarian bounced back and delivered unwavering consistency and exceptional racing skills as the season went on. With five races to spare, he secured his fifth Goodyear FIA ETRC title at Le Mans.
