Hungary is a fantastic country and very cheap to boot. Current weather is very hot so hopefully that sticks around!22nd June 2016, 19:45 at 7:45 pm #323209
I always book mine through gpticketshop and they are fantastic. Have managed to sort me out with specific seats every year. Gone for the 3 corner Bronze for a change this year.
You should have no problem picking up your tickets. The booths are literally outside the main gate that you would need to walk past anyway as you go in.
4 weeks to go!21st March 2016, 11:25 at 11:25 am #315874
The 3 taxi companies are:
It’s important to only use these as they are the only ones able to use the access road. The rest will end up in traffic. The cost is around 9000ft. It did used to be a fixed price but now goes on the meter.16th March 2016, 10:59 at 10:59 am #315215
I’ve been to the Hungaroring for the past 4 years so can offer a bit of advice. The terrain is very rugged around the outside of the track and would likely to be difficult to walk on. The main entrance is near the first corner and so therefore you can access Gold 4, Gold 3, Super Gold, Gold 1, Gold 2, Silver 2, Silver 1 and Red bull without leaving steady concrete paved ground. Be aware though that the stands towards the last corner (Red Bull, Silver 1 etc) require you to walk up a big grass hill and around to get to them. There is a quicker route behind the stands (on concrete) but the security will not let you use it. I would suggest if you spoke to Hungaroring about your requirements beforehand they would issue you with a letter or something to allow you to walk along the flat way to your seat, which is actually much shorter.
The others are correct in that public transport is a long way from the track. however, the taxi rank is located directly next to the main entrance. I would suggest sharing a taxi with someone and making sure you use a firm which can use the special access road (only 3 companies) to allow you quick entry to the circuit. We do it most years and can get from the center of Budapest to the track in around 15 minutes, even on Sunday.19th August 2015, 9:55 at 9:55 am #303325
I ended up going out of the circuit on Sunday to consider my options. Very nearly spent €30 on a Ferrari fleece blanket it was that cold!19th July 2015, 11:23 at 11:23 am #302047
Cash only for food stands. They take euros or forints. The merchandise stands will take cards.18th July 2015, 22:01 at 10:01 pm #302037
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.15th July 2015, 12:24 at 12:24 pm #301955
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!15th July 2015, 11:07 at 11:07 am #301942
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.15th July 2015, 10:42 at 10:42 am #301940
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!14th July 2015, 12:50 at 12:50 pm #301914
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.10th July 2014, 23:05 at 11:05 pm #266343
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!8th September 2013, 23:40 at 11:40 pm #24146124th July 2013, 18:36 at 6:36 pm #206660
Book with one of the 3 companies that have access to Bernie Ave and they are quick. Other ones are not.24th July 2013, 13:50 at 1:50 pm #239277
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.
