Hungaroring

The Hungaroring held its first grand prix in 1986 and has since been ever-present on the Formula One calendar. It currently marks the last race before the summer break kicks in.

The circuit is a modern complex, but overtaking is difficult and this often turns the races into a procession, earning the race a reputation of being known as 'Monaco without the barriers'.

This is a tight and twisty circuit but drivers can certainly let their hair down when flying uphill to Turn 4, where they are met with a blind exit at the tough left-hander.

Directions: The Hungaroring is close to Budapest and its International Ferihegy Airport and the track is easy to reach. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside and has a natural amphitheatre setting. You can reach the circuit from Budapest by driving north-east on the E71/M3 towards Miskok.
