We have decided to get the train to the circuit and a bit confused at which train stop is best? As far as I can see from this forum and the Hungarian F1 info page that there are three train stations, Mogyorod, Szilasliget, and Hungaroring.
Which one is best? I understand Mogyorod is about an hours walk and Szilasliget is a 30 minute walk? Assuming the Hungaroring stop is even closer but it is a dirt track. Is the dirt track really that bad, seems to suggest that on all the sites but that info might be outdated.
Any up to date information would be much appreciated.
I’m going to the race! I have general admision for three days and I rented a flat in 7th district. I’d like to know if someone wants to share car/taxi/train etc. to the circuit and if there is a “reunion point” to F1Fanatics to meet you.
I’ll have a second room in the flat if somebody need it.
Is my third time in Budapest and the city is really great!
Hope to a great WE and see you at the race.
This is mine and the girlfriends first ever Grand Prix, we fly out on Thursday from Stansted and come back on Tuesday.
I only bought GA tickets, iif I am honest, I am expecting disappointment when it comes to keeping track of the race, so would sooner go expecting to just absorb the atmosphere and being around the F1 circus.
Can I ask about What time to get there? is the F1 race the only event? or do other cars race also?
If your at stansted on Thursday then say hi to a big balding bloke with glasses and a red McLaren hat :)
@Simon You will get atmosphere aplenty :) I have followed F1 for around fifteen years now and attend 2-5 races a year, depending on how flush I am….Silverstone, Spa, Magny Cours, Istanbul, Spain, Hungaroring, Hockenheim, Nurburgring, Istanbul, Monza and Singapore….all heaven! :) Set to record the race before you go. I take my ipod nano and listen, with one earbud in, to the race commentary. I tried a Kangaroo, before fanvision took them over, but couldn’t get on with it….too much fiddling about! Enjoy your first race, hope you get hooked :)
