Hungaroring 2012

Post by albertz33 »

Hello Peeps,

A few of us are planning a group trip to the Hungarain GP next year, :cloud9: we have already booked hotel accomodation, but cant yet buy GP tickets, i can see the 2012 race calender on the F1 website, but it does not allow you to buy tickets just yet, does anyone know when 2012 tickets will be for sale? :confused:

Also has anyone been to the Hungarian GP in the past? and has any info it would be greatly appreciated, where do busses leave from? best seats in the hungaroring? must see / do in Budapest etc?

Any help would be great.

:) Have been to Hungaroring for the last 2 years and it is fab, totally recommend it. We sat in grandstand gold 2 both times because you get all the atmosphere on the grid etc and you can look across at other parts of the track. Gold 4 at turn 1 would be a great place to watch from, always lots of action there. Ticket prices are cheap compared with other grand prix, we can't afford grandstands when we go to Spa!

Although I've never been, I believe that the Hungarian GP is a fantastic event to attend. The circuit is built into a natural valley, so the outer grandstands provide views over much of the rest of the circuit. Passing will be most prevalent at Turn 1.

Hungaroring is the destination for our european road trip so we drive to the circuit. This website has got loads of information about buses. There is a free shuttle bus. Travelling to the track is great because the Rendorseg wave you through red lights and send you up one way streets that you are not normally allowed down. 8-)

Thanks guys, gold 4 looks good, if you have a gold 4 ticket does that mean you can go into other areas? i.e. other gold areas or silver?

You can get good value Pinot Grigio there too. And I'll stop right there, before it reminds me of my "job on the side".

Great job with the pics, grid girls and all! I'd have hated being the guy stuck sitting behind the guy with the sombrero for the length of the GP. :hehe:

better than that was the redbull fan in nothing but a redbull hat and borat style green mankini,...he was pasty white at the beginning of the race and lobster red by the end!!..Brave though!

Loads of Finns there which surprised me.
