    Cash only for food stands. They take euros or forints. The merchandise stands will take cards.

    There are entrance gates at the last corner and near the first corner. They open them at the end of the race but there is a large queue and a bit of a bottleneck so you’ll have to get there in the last few laps to get near the podium.

    Yeah we’re there from Wednesday until Thursday the following week. 6×6 taxis have always been good for us. There used to be a fixed price but now it’s on the meter. Only 6×6, Taxi 2000 and City Taxi are able to use the VIP road so make sure it’s one of them. On the way back there is a rank outside the main entrance. The queue is fairly horrendous but it takes no more than 15 mins to be back at your hotel which is amazing after a full day in 37 degree heat. Even the air-con in the taxi is a blessing!

    Yeah they are from Bronze 1. On Friday you can wander about and go wherever within the stand. There is a sweet spot low down on the left hand side where you have a clear view with no fences etc. The only ticket check is at the entrance to Bronze 1 & 2 as well so you can wander all the way down to turn 5. There are a few other places for decent shots in general admission but you’ll need the longer lens. You can get close but to be up on the hills and over the fence you’ll need the reach.

    If you click on the pictures it tells you. I shoot with Fuji-X cameras. Most of the side on ones are at about 100mm on a 50-230mm lens. It’s the only F1 race where to do those type of shots I haven’t be constantly at the far end of the telephoto!

    4th year on the bounce for me. We’re in Bronze 1 as usual. We tend to get a taxi to and from the circuit. It’s worth the money to whizz down Bernie Avenue and be straight in and out, especially if you can find another couple to share with.

    It’s not normally that expensive anyway. Shame the walk from the station is one of the most soul destroying things I’ve ever encountered!

    At least it’ll hide the empty stands…

    Book with one of the 3 companies that have access to Bernie Ave and they are quick. Other ones are not.

    No they don’t. And with the lack of fan vision it’s ridiculous. Last year I had to resort to autosport’s twitter updates.

    Hi Liam,

    We’re also looking at taxis. We managed to share them last year to great success. I’ve sent a friend request so we can try and set something up.

    There is no radio commentary at the track. There wasn’t any last year and there won’t be any this year either, I’ve checked directly with Hungaroring.

    Last year you could take in alcohol but only 1 can each. I passed my second can to a bewildered german man who walked through with it and then gave it back to me!

    Is there anyone on here looking to share taxis to/from the circuit? Last year we decided the train was way too much hassle and the taxis have a special road that gets you to/from the circuit in 20 mins. I think it’s about £30 which is pretty good if shared with another couple.

    Is anyone looking to share a taxi to the circuit. We are staying near Blaha ljuza ter.

    The walk from the station nearly killed me today.

    Also going to Budapest. Annoyed a bit about the weather after being soaked at Silverstone this year!

    Staying in central Budapest from tomorrow and we’re also interested in a taxi share. Might try the train on Thursday and see how we get on.
