Because of the very good view of the race track the Bronze 2 Grandstand is very popular on the Hungaroring. In addition, there is a giant TV screen opposite the grandstand. The Bronze 2 Grandstand has over 3500 seats.
The general admission area surrounds the biggest part of the circuit. Since the surrounding of the circuit is very hilly, there's a good view at some spots of the general admission area, mostly however you can see a shorter part of the circuit than from the grandstands. There are no giant TVs in the general admission area.
Gold 1 Uncovered Grandstand runs along the outside of the main straight, just after the start line. This is a great place to watch pre-race grid preparations, the race start, and to see the winner take the chequered flag before celebrating on the podium. Spectators also have a great overview of the pit lane, making this an excellent place to follow the evolution of pit strategies and to watch the skill of the pit crews.
Built in 2003, the Gold 4 Grandstand is located directly on the end of the Start/Finish straight. The first turn has been completely reconstructed in 2003 with a 400m longer start/finish straight and a more tighter first turn which makes overtaking more easier and therefore brings more action to the spectator. There is a giant TV screen opposite the grandstand. All of the 2500 seats are numbered and equipped with bucket seats.
The Silver Corner Grandstands are located in the last curve before the start/finish. You have a view of the entire start/finish line as well as the 2 previous curves and the entrance to the pit lane. Like all other grandstands, this one has its own video wall. All of the seats are numbered and have bucket seats.
As a visitor of the Super Gold Grandstand you have the best view of the start and finish line, pit lane and team garages. In addition, there are giant TV screens opposite the grandstand. The Super Gold Grandstand has over 7600 numbered bucket seats. The Super Gold Grandstand is also the only covered Grandstand at the Hungaroring. Behind the Super Gold Grandstand is the F1 Village (Official Teams Merchandising and Exhibition Area). Of all the Grands Prix we go to this Super Gold Grandstand has one of the best views of the Start Finish Line, Garages and Pit Lane. And at the (relatively) low price it is offered it puts other circuits to shame.
Summer is the perfect time to visit Budapest. In the evening eat and drink in one of many open-air dining restaurants. It’s a great way to experience Hungarian gastronomy with a side of people watching.
Enjoy Thursday’s open pit lane and and meet the drivers session takes place between 17:00 and 19:00. It’s a great opportunity to get close to the drivers, their cars and to look into the team garages. Simply arrive at the circuit with your 3-day ticket to gain entrance. Taxi transfers can be booked by hotel reception.
The most relaxed day of the race weekend. A great opportunity to get to know the circuit. Friday is great day to get those sensational photos of the cars as it’s easy to walk around the entire circuit. Private taxi transfers can be booked by hotel reception.

Just returned from a fantastic Grand Prix weekend in Budapest booked with MotoExpress. The hotel is lovely and the breakfast provided is a great start to the day. The transportation to and from the circuit by comfortable private minibus is so convenient and quick. The racing was truly exciting and the whole event a great experience. Budapest is a beautiful city and there is a lot to see and do, as well as some great restaurants. We would love to do it again. Many thanks to MotoExpress for organising another superb trip and we look forward to returning soon.
G'day John (hope vernacular correct), Just wanted to say on behalf of my brother Gary and I thanks for the Hungaroring. Your deputies were well up to the task and all arrangements and transfers were perfect. We've definitely caught the bug and, finances permitting, will definitely be going to other Grand Prix in the not too distant. Vietnam was already on my wish list but not sure if we can do next year yet. Thanks and regards
Hi John and Linda, I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the great weekend at the Hungarian Grand Prix. Great organisation and company . Hope to see you on another trip one day soon.
Great stay in Mamaison Andrassy...good location, spacious rooms, friendly staff, clean, good breakfast and close to local transport. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Staff happy to provide tickets for local visits eg bus sightseeing tours, bus and underground tickets etc and proved advice on what to see or do. One of our best hotel stays thus far and the room was spotless and had plenty of room to move.
Just wanted to say thanks for another great weekend. As ever all arrangements were flawless and we certainly had one of the best races to watch for a very long time. We were all saying what a great event this is to attend as the transfers to the circuit are so quick and easy and that value for money is simply great. On the last evening we went to "Tigris" and the meal was exceptional. Thanks again and see you next year.
What a hotel, it was perfect in every way. The staff and the hotel could not have been better. Situated on the beautiful Andrassy avenue, this hotel was so relaxing and had everything you need. I would return here without a doubt.
Just a few lines to say a big thank you for organising a superb trip to the GP last weekend. Karen and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves (well, for the first three days!) at the circuit and enjoyed meeting the rest of the MotoExpress trippers. Our very best wishes to you both – I am sorry we never made that bar bike session as we really enjoyed the dinner and drinks on Sunday night and were looking forward to carrying on from there! We hope to enjoy a MotoExpress even again in the future and wish you continued success with it!
