Hungarian Grand Prix
Part of the FIA Formula One world championship, this annual competition, established in 1936, can be considered a historic event to be marked in our calendars.
Held at the Hungaroring in Mogyoród near Budapest, the narrow twists and turns of the course and frequently dusty hot weather make for exciting races as overtaking is challenging, despite modifications made to the course in recent years. 2006 was the first year in which the Hungarian Grand Prix was run in wet conditions - this was the year when Nigel Mansell's 17-year-record of winning from 12th was broken, Jenson Button took victory from 14th place on the grid. In 2012, Lewis Hamilton won his second race of the season by taking victory in Hungary.
This year, guests in possession of a valid Grand Prix Weekend ticket may also extend their visit with the chance to enter the site before any other fan on Thursday 24 July from 4pm – 7pm and experience an exclusive ‘pit walk’.
