" …and so by skill one driver can beat another "

(Homer's Iliad, Book XXIII, 8th Century BC)


An outstanding personality in the coach driving world. President of the Hungarian Equestrian Sport Association. Seven times coach driving world champion. University lecturer on horse-related issues. Technical director of the Hungarian National Horse Programme. Inventor of the idea and chief organiser of the annual Horse World Cup held in Papp László Budapest Sports Arena, an event that is popular with the profession and general public alike. The vice President of CBA, the Hungarian Supermarket Chain. The co-owner of the family business, the Lázár Equestrian Park, with great international renown. A man of great sporting, economic, social and political capital.

"How can you tackle so many tasks simultaneously?"
"With teamwork. I like to think that I have a good touch for choosing the right colleagues." Vilmos says.
"Even coach driving is teamwork – ranging from picking, and training the right horse to the organisation of the race and racing itself."
However, one is still alone when sitting on the box seat, with all the decisions to be made alone. He has been the best coach driver of the world for years.
He is a man of great racing routine and driving culture. He has had successful starts at all the world cups for over two decades, since 1989.
His peers regard him as a cool headed competitor of balanced thinking and strong nerves. On the world cups he often won the show driving, obstacle and marathon driving and has no weaker number.
He can also thank his horse, Mythos the successful Lipica mare for his successes, who won race after race on eight world cups and has since become a mother.

Lasollay, the German cavalry captain used to say that there were drivers who held the reins respectably like a  raftsman, in accordance with the music notes they had learnt. However, he compared the really great coach drivers to the beautiful music played by the virtuoso violinist. In the case of the virtuoso the hard work of the practice is combined with God-given talent, innate sentiment and temperament. The style of Hungarian drivers.
