Hungarian Grand Prix.
New date for the Grand Prix is 1st August 2010
The Hungarian Grand Prix is held at the Hungaroring on the outskirts of Budapest every August. The Hungarian Grand Prix dates back to 1936 when it was staged in a public park called Nepliget (People's Park).
Situated 12 miles north east of the City Centre next to the M3 motorway leading to Debrecen, Hungary’s second largest city. The Hungaroring is approximately 65 miles from the eastern shore of Lake Balaton. The M7 motorway connects Budapest with the southern shore of Lake Balaton, with a car journey time of less than two hours and with regular train services between Lake Balaton and Budapest, travelling to the Hungarian Grand Prix is relatively easy.
The Recent History
Bernie Ecclestone, leader of Formula 1 mentioned on the Monte Carlo Grand Prix 1983 to his friend Tamás Rohonyi (who is of Hungarian origin) that one event of the championship should be held behind the “iron curtain”. In the summer of 1983 a telex arrived at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs indicating Mr. Ecclestone’s suggestion.
The first big step was followed by smaller ones in the next two and a half years. The long period of preparation and organisation was fruitful, as on September 10th 1985 in London the contract for the first five years of the Hungarian Grand Prix was signed.
Small steps were followed by work at a pace and after eight months the circuit, with one of the most beautiful locations of the Championship, was completed and the first race was held on August 10th 1986.
The idea of Bernie Ecclestone’s to take Formula One after 36 years
into a socialist country seemed to be insanity. The past 21 years have
justified his decision as Hungaroring has kept its place amongst the most
prestigious race locations all over the world.
