Hungarian Grand Prix

Hungarian Grand Prix


It may not be a street course, but the Hungaroring has been compared to Monaco, due to its tight and twisty corners and lack of overtaking opportunities. Indeed it is tight, but the Hungarian Grand Prix configuration almost always makes for an entertaining race because driver skill and proper setup tend to be just as important as absolute power.

Hungarian Grand Prix--Hospitality and Tickets--Track Transfers


The Hungarian Grand Prix gives you the perfect opportunity to explore the `Paris of central Europe.` Budapest is considered to be one of the most vibrant cities in Europe where the charms of old and the characteristics of cosmopolitan living are blended. Some fall in love with the city at first sight while others become devotees of Budapest only after a longer period of discovery, but all agree that it is one of the most beautiful locations in the world.

Ever-changing track conditions can turn the Hungarian Grand Prix into a lottery, but if this year`s race is anything like 2017 your race weekend is no gamble!

RACE OVERVIEW

Hungarian Grand Prix
Drawing back the Iron Curtain in 1986, Hungary built a race track close to Budapest for Formula One. The development of the circuit took just eight months. This was not the first time Grand Prix cars raced in Hungary; Budapest welcomed the Silver Arrows in 1936, on a track in the Peoples Park.

However it was not the all conquering Auto Union or Mercedes that won the race, it was the Alfa Romeo entered by a certain Enzo Ferrari and driven by Tazio Nuvolari that crossed the finish line first. This was the second time that Nuvolari had beaten the Silver Arrows; he won at the 1935 Germany Grand Prix much to the delight of the crowd and disgust of the Third Reich. Late in 1936 Nuvolari accepted an offer from Auto Union; the Germans could not tolerate being beaten by Tazio a third time, what do they say, if you can`t beat them, join them.

Fifty years later they started racing again in Hungary, Bernie Ecclestone had certainly pulled of a coup by making in-roads into the Eastern Block. The track is narrow and twisty, which has made for some surprise results due to the difficulty in overtaking. For the past thirty years the Hungarian Grand Prix has not missed a year, even the cost of entry does not deter the spectators.

The weather is generally in the mid European heat wave and it has only rained once during the race in thirty years. Budapest is a wonderful city to visit; it has a strong culture with plenty of restaurants and bars to keep you entertained.
