The Hungaroring Circuit was built in 1985, located a few kilometres north-east of the Hungarian capital Budapest. The quickest Formula 1 circuit to build, construction took just 8 months. The first race took place on 24th March 1986, in memory of motorcycle rider Janos Drapal, the first Hungarian to win Grand Prix championships. The constantly improving circuit, with its excellent infrastructure, meets the strictest requirements for F1 racing. It is praised by the FOM and FIA and it is a popular venue for testing.
Set in one of the most popular tourist areas in Hungary, the track is located in a huge 110 hectare natural valley, making the views as spectacular as the racing. With the exceptional natural advantage of being situated in a natural amphitheatre, almost 70 percent of the racetrack is visible from any point and this makes the circuit a fan favourite. The Hungaroring Circuit meets the highest technical requirements and is regarded to be one of the safest race tracks in the world. Located so close to a major city, there is no shortage of accommodation, restaurants, entertainment and tourist attractions.
