WHO IS THIS?
This not so magnificent Magyar was the first of his kind to race at the highest level in the modern era, although his equipment and ability meant that his was hardly a starring role.
He crammed in some decent results in a European-wide feeder formula, which led to a promotion to the third rung of the ladder.
With backing from the real thing he continued to rise up the ranks, earning a test role with a waning giantkiller. Opportunity struck when injury forced out a regular, allowing him to make a debut at home.
He was given a full-time role at a perennial minnow the following season and made his point in a crazy race. He tried but failed to make a move across the pond, and almost earned his
Spurs but failed to kick a ball.
