General Event Information

The Hungaroring has become a classical race track over the past years. It was built almost three decades ago as a rarity, the first one beyond the Iron Curtain, and now is still special as the third continuously featured track in the race calendar, behind Monte-Carlo and Monza. This year marks the 30th Hungarian Grand Prix at the race track in Mogyoród. To mark this occasion, the staff at Hungaroring is planning additional special programs for the spectators.

The Hungaroring track is situated about 20 kilometers north of Budapest, so the Hungarian Grand Prix gives you the perfect opportunity to explore one of the most beautiful cities in Central Europe. Known as the ‘Paris of central Europe’ and ‘the Queen of the Danube’, Budapest is adorned with beautiful architecture, most of which was built towards the end of the 19th century when the city enjoyed a boom during the industrial revolution. The four ornate bridges that link Buda and Pest were built at this time. The weather is invariably warm around race time, which only adds to the enjoyment of your visit.
