The General Admission areas are based on a natural hillside and focused around the second half of the track.
Further along the lap, Bronze 1 and 2 grandstands overlook the fast paces chicane at turn 6 and 7. The cars will appear around the sweeping bend at turn 5 before taking on this sharp change in direction. It’s unlikely you’ll catch an overtake in this section of the track, but witnessing the control the drivers have through here at phenomenal speeds is a sight to behold. It will be around a 10-15 minute walk to the Fan Zone, but there will be food and drink stalls around to keep you fuelled during the sessions.
These grandstands are all close to each other at the start of the main straight. You’ll have a decent view of the grid and podium celebrations, and see the cars beginning to pick up the speed on the straight. Silver 4 is elevated, behind the other three stands. This gives it a better view across multiple corners in the final sector of the lap, and is recommended. These stands are also close to the F1 Fan Zone, so a short walk to food, drink and entertainment throughout the weekend.
Turn 1 is one of the best opening corners in Formula 1. After a long straightaway to start the race, the cars approach a wide and flowing hairpin where they will jockey for position. These two grandstands overlook turn 1, and are located on the outside of the straight in line with the braking zone. This is a great place to watch any first lap carnage unfold, and will be a key overtaking point throughout the race, as it marks the end of a DRS zone.

Directions to Hungaroring (Gödöllo) with public transportation
The following transit lines have routes that pass near Hungaroring
- Train: H8
COACH & BUS
There are bus services which can be used free of charge by spectators across the Grand Prix Weekend. These services run from u00D6rs vezu00E9t tere (Kerepesi u00FAt) and Kerepes Hu00C9V station to Gate 3 at the Hungaroring. Please be aware that the drop-off point is an approximate 20 minute uphill walk from the circuit.
Due to the number of spectators, these services can be busy and we advise arriving as early as possible to avoid congestion.
6×6 Taxi (Phone: (+36-1) 666-6666) is usually the official partner to the Hungaroring and because of this will have access to the faster VIP road to the circuit. To avoid a wait, particularly after the race on Sunday, you may want to pre-book your taxi over the phone.
Taxi2000 (Phone: (+36-1) 200-0000) and City Taxi (Phone: (+36-1) 211-1111) are also popular taxi companies which operate in Budapest.
The HEV train service operates from Ors Vezer Square to Mogyorod Station, from which the circuit is a 30 minute walk.
Single tickets for 350HUF can be used for any journey in the city that lasts no longer than 80 minutes from validation and is limited to one transfer. Save money by buying a book of 10 for 3000HUF. Always validate the ticket you want to use before entering the carriage or face a hefty fine if caught with an un-stamped ticket.
24 hour, 72 hour and 1 week travel cards can be bought and allow unlimited travel for the time specified. These have the added benefit of not requiring validation.
There are a number of options for getting to the circuit but be advised that some involve a pretty long walk in potentially very hot conditions.
Metro and Suburban Railway (HEV)
For many F1 fans, in Budapest for the race weekend only you’ll find you can get about and to and from the Grand Prix on the metro and HEV alone.
There are 4 metro lines in Budapest and it is an effective way of getting around the city, particularly on the Pest side of the river. With announcements in English and Hungarian and screens that display the next station, it’s also very easy to use.
There are also a couple of suburban railways called the HEV which connects with the M2 Metro line for trips outside of the city centre.
…for the Airport
The city’s metro M3 (blue line) network can be reached from the airport by bus in about 25 minutes on bus 200E (see the bus section below).
…for the Grand Prix
Now with shuttle buses connecting local train and metro stations to the circuit it’s easier than ever to include the metro and suburban HEV trains as part of your Grand Prix daily commute. The best part is it only costs about a Euro.
Start by taking the metro M2 (red line) to Örs vezét tere at the end of the line. From here you have several options:
- Following the red S8 signs, walk a couple of minutes through the underpass to Örs vezét tere HEV station. At the station you’ll see two platforms – one for S8 and one for S9. The destination of the train will be clearly indicated on the front of the wagon. Take HEV train H8 towards Gödöllő and get off at Kerepes station where there is a shuttle bus service.
- Following the previous step, you could choose to get off at Szilasliget (for gates 3 to 8 and the main gate) or Mogyorod station (for gates 2 to 3) and walk to the track. From either station it’s about 25 – 30 minutes on foot to the gates of the circuit.
You can use the same standard ticket for the HEV train as long as it’s still valid. You’ll also need to have a ‘supplemental ticket’ which you can buy from the conductor or at the ticket kiosk near the platform.
You should allow about 90 minutes to 2 hours for the total journey time including waiting for the shuttle bus or walking.
If taking the train on the return trip it may be quicker to walk to Mogyorod station where less fans will be and you’ll have less of a wait.
See the bus section below for more information on the shuttle bus and the schedule.
Budapest’s yellow taxis can be a useful way to get around especially in the absence of a metro line. City centre rides are usually no longer than 25 minutes, charge 280HUF/km and a starting fee of 450HUF.
Try to use only trusted taxi companies and insist that the meter be on, or agree a price in advance if you know how much you should pay.
…for the Airport
Getting from the airport to downtown Budapest should cost no more than 10,000HUF using the taxi company contracted by the airport. Don’t be tempted by the taxi touts who may approach you in arrivals as they are likely to overcharge.
Instead, go outside to the taxi booth and pre-purchase your ride from the taxi dispatcher and take the voucher they give you to the taxi driver that they direct you to.
For the most stress free arrival, book a ride in advance with global airport transfer specialists Kiwitaxi.com, and your driver will be ready and waiting for you. They offer a range of vehicle types depending on your needs, from budget small cars, luxury sedans all the way up to 16 seater minibuses.
…for the Grand Prix
For getting to the circuit taking a taxi is one of the better ways as you’ll get much closer and not have a long, hot walk. On the way back, unless you pre-booked a taxi, the wait can be about an hour, so whether you want to wait or take a train is up to you.
6X6 Taxi is the official taxi partner of the Hungarian Grand Prix so and are permitted to use the VIP lane that gets you right to the circuit gates. Visit their website to find out how to book a ride with their online order form, app or by email. Alternatively, you can call them on +36 1 666 6666.
For anywhere in Budapest not covered by the metro, there will almost certainly be a bus route that can take you where you want to go and might be useful to reach your accommodation or an out of the way tourist attraction. Usual services run until about 11pm and some night bus services run through the night. As with the metro always validate your ticket when boarding a bus.
…for the Airport
From the airport to downtown there are no metro or train connections. Instead take the 100E Airport Shuttle Bus and get off in the centre of Budapest at the Deák Ferenc tér metro station (M1 and M2 lines). You could also take public bus no. 200E. This is cheaper but doesn’t go into the city centre, instead terminating near the Kőbánya-Kispest metro station on the M3 line. These buses depart from outside the terminal (look for the ticket machines as you exit the arrivals hall).
…for the Grand Prix
There will be a free shuttle bus service between the circuit and Kerepes HÉV station. Kerepes HÉV station can be easily reached using the metro and HÉV networks.
At the Hungaroring, buses drop off and pick fans up from gate 3, near turn 10 in the infield section of the circuit. Buses run frequently during peak times and the Sunday return bus will continue to run based on demand.
