Sport is big business in the Nagy family: Dániel’s older brother Viktor is goalkeeper for the Hungarian national water polo team, one of the country’s biggest sports. He’s also the great-grandson of legendary Hungarian painter Csontváry Kosztka Tivadar. Nagy started racing in 2011. He became Hungarian Suzuki Swift Cup champion in 2013 and 2015. His latter performance earned him a drive with Zengő in the TCR International round at Salzburgring, quaifying third before crashing out. Nagy made his belated WTCC debut with the team in Portugal last year, claiming a best result of P11 in the opening race at Qatar.
