Track of The Month – July 2018

Hungaroring – Budapest, Hungary

This July, The Race Centre’s Track of the Month is the Hungaroring circuit in Hungary.

Located just outside of the country’s capital Budapest, the 2.7 mile, 13 corner Hungaroring played host to it’s first Formula 1 race in 1986, and in the process became the first race to take part behind the Soviet Union’s Iron Curtain. The Hungarian Grand Prix has been ever-present on the calendar since then, a run only bettered by Monza and Monaco. Apart from Formula 1, the Hungaroring has been a circuit synonomous with the WTCC and DTM series, becoming one of Europe’s busiest circuits.

Once described as “Like a street circuit without the houses,” by Martin Brundle, the Hungaroring’s twisty and bumpy layout provides a challenge for drivers, with one small mistake having the potential to ruin the entire lap. Come and drive the Hungaroring for yourself this month at The Race Centre.
