    can anyone help me? Are general admission ticket worth or is it necessary to buy grandstands tickets? What are your experience?

    Thank you.

    Hello I have not been to this track but have been to a few others and in talking with people the general admission can work out well if you are camping at the track or can make it to the track around 6am to hold your spot for the race if not I would suggest getting the grandstand tickets so you can see the circuit.

  6. Hello! just wondering if there are any brave folk out there who are driving to the hungarian grand prix this year and would like to share costs….. it would be me and my 14yo son…..we live in central France……cheers!

    Hi, Just booked today for the Hungarian Grand Prix, some good deals on tickets with Grandstand Motorsports in the UK, we have booked Gold 4 grandstand for the three days and will be staying in Budapest. There is a shuttle bus from Arpad Bridge in Pest which goes to the circuit at regular intervals if you need transport.

    I went to 2010 Hungarian Grand Prix with a friend. Had a plan to buy general admission tickets. We were lucky to buy grandstand tickets from guys who had two tickets for friends who couldn’t attend. Was at silver grandstand at the last corner. Great place. You can see almost from turn 12 to turn 14, then the cars disappear behind the hill and then you can see them again exiting turn 15. You can see the entrance to the pit and half of pit boxes. You can also see most of the main straight. Very close to the action. We went there only for the race. Got there around noon and managed to buy the tickets and find the grandstand in less than an hour. We had to wait around an hour to be able to leave the track through some dirt roads. In general, very reasonable price for the whole experience.

        Hello we are red bull. Well I have to admit I am a huge Schumacher fan but can’t stand merc. So after seeing vettel run his first grand prix and score points after everyone was saying he is to young to drive I couldn’t help but like him.

        We are staying in city center at boutique hotel zara not sure how that is from you guys. Let me know if you know how far we are from you guys. If you are up for some drinks and some f1 talk!

        • Andrea said on 21st June 2011, 10:31

          red bull are certainly on the pace this year and if the rumours are true it looks like hamilton could be with red bull next year if mclaren cant build him a winning car!!
          we are not too far away from your hotel, about 15 min walk i think or a short distance on the tram, so we will meet up for drinks b4 the race!! when do you fly in?

          • Justin said on 22nd June 2011, 5:09

            Yeah they are off to a good start!! The race is getting closer we are counting the days We get in on weds. How about you guys?

  12. Andrea said on 22nd June 2011, 18:15
