2016. Június 15.
Are you a fan of F1 Championships? Then it’s high time to visit the Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix on 22-24 July 2016. The race being held at the Mogyorod will be the 31th Hungarian Grand Prix and for this occasion the staff at Hungaroring is planning special additional programs for the spectators.
About the beginnings:
The Hungaroring track is situated 20 kilometers north of the Hungarian capital, Budapest. Hungary first hosted a Grand Prix in the 1930s, but the Second World War and the Iron Curtain made it impossible to continue the races. At the start of the 1980s there was a general wish for a Grand Prix to be held behind the Iron Curtain, there was a demand to re-boost the motorsport in Hungary. In the summer of 1983, the attention of the Formula 1 decision makers turned towards Budapest, and from that moment on Hungary has become part of the global motorsport, again.
At first, a street race through Budapest was suggested, but in the end they changed their mind and decided to build a brand new circuit in a valley 20 kilometers outside of Budapest. The valley provided natural vantage points for spectators. The track opened in 1986 and the first Formula One event was held in August that year. It was a huge success with almost 200,000 fans.
About the advantages:
The track is in a 110 hectar natural valley, surrounded by 50 hectares of rolling hillside. With this exceptional natural advantage - being situated in a natural amphitheater - almost 70 percent of the racetrack is visible from any point. This is the reason why it is called "The Shallow Plate", is because the spectators are watching races sitting by the side of an imaginary plate.
About the success of F1 Hungarian Grand Prixes:
Due to the constant improvement and reconstruction of the circuit, Hungaroring meets the highest technical requirements and has become one of the safest racetracks in the world. After three decades, Hungaroring has turned into the third most special event behind Monte-Carlo and Monza to have been featured in the race calendar.
About the accommodation, transport and the city:
The F1 Hungarian Grand Prix gives you the perfect opportunity to explore Budapest, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Budapest is a real metropolis with its hotels, bars, restaurants and extra entertainment facilities where the tourists, drivers and the teams will be able to meet their requirements.
