Three times a European Autocross Champion, Tamás Kárai made his FIA European Rallycross Championship bow in 2015, immediately ascending the podium on his debut at Mettet behind the wheel of a Racing-Com KFT Škoda Fabia. Two further semi-final appearances resulted in 11th in the overall standings that season, which he improved upon to ninth in 2016, now driving an Audi A1 and progressing through to the final in Norway.

2017 would prove to be a difficult campaign, with his sole points-scoring finish a fifth place in the last round in Riga, before 2018 witnessed more of a return to form and 2019 marked the Hungarian’s finest season to-date as he advanced to at least the semi-final stage in every event – highlighted by third place at Lohéac and fourth at Höljes – en route to sixth in the championship classification. Switching to an Audi S1 in 2020, he reached the semi-final in Sweden and the final in Latvia to secure seventh in the points table.

In parallel to his Euro RX outings, Kárai has entered sporadic World RX events since the championship’s inception in 2014, finishing inside the points for the first time in 2020 as he scored in all four rounds he contested in Finland and Spain.
