Hungarian Grand Prix ~ 26-30 July 2018

The Hungarian is also the first circuit to have hosted a Formula 1 Grand Prix on the "other side of the Iron Curtain". The Hungarian Grand Prix has been on the calendar since 1986, establishing itself as one of Formula 1's most famous venues. Famous for its technically demanding layout, the Hungarian is a tough and narrow circuit just outside the wonderful city of Budapest. Loved by the drivers for the challenge it poses in the heat of summer, its delightful setting, old-school layout, and fantastic carnival atmosphere, this circuit is also particularly relished by the fans. You will enjoy terrific vantage points while watching the races since the circuit is built in a natural valley.

Available Ticket Categories & Description

General Admission
This ticket provides access to the General Admission areas at the Hungaroring, which are at extensive sections around the circuit, and offer great views thanks to the bowl configuration of the circuit and its surroundings. Seating is mostly on grassy mounds, and views vary greatly, so get to the track early to claim a good spot. Some fans prefer the freedom to move around the circuit offered by a General Admission ticket, as well as the space to spread out.
