Hungarian Grand Prix
Hungarian Grand PrixJoin Grand Prix Tours as we venture to Hungary`s capitol city of Budapest to take in the 2018 Hungarian Grand Prix.
Due to the construction of the circuit in a small valley this race favors spectators like few other circuits. With a carnival style atmosphere as well the Hungarian Grand Prix is an amazing experience for race enthusiasts and new fans alike.
The circuit tends to be compared to Monaco due to the tight and twisting nature of the track and the lack of overtaking areas. While this is not a street course driver skill and the proper setup tend to be just as important as absolute power at this exciting race.

RACE OVERVIEWHungarian 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.
