August 2 - 5, 2007
World Championship 2007
Between August 2 and August 5, 2007,
Hungaroring will host an unparalleled show to entertain Formula 1 fans throughout the world.
Hungaroring, considered to be one of the safest racetracks
in the world, is located in a 110-hectare valley near Mogyorod (just
19 kilometers north-east of Budapest
It is a genuine “natural amphitheater”, a natural bowl dubbed “The Shallow Plate”, because spectators can see 50 to 80 percent of the racetracks sitting on the hillside, as if they were sitting on the rim of a plate.
NEW THIS YEAR, and ONLY AT HUNGARORING:
The FIA Formula One Historic Cars will race during the weekend.
Apart from the Formula 1 Grand Prix
, the next generation F1 drivers from the GP2
series as well as the Porsche Super Cup
pilots compete at the Hungaroring, and there will be a Historic Formula One
also, on Saturday, August 4th, 2007. For a complete schedule of the Hungaroring events, click on the Official Program
Note, however, that Hungaroring is not the only place where the Grand Prix events will take place
. Laszlo Palik, CEO of Hungaroring Sport CC, and race car driver himself, announced at a press conference that there will be a magnificent show in the city of Budapest as well
, including a procession of F1 cars
on the Clark Adam ter – Lanchid – Roosevelt ter
route (Adam Clark Square – Chain Bridge – Roosevelt Square).
In the mean time, world champion pilot Peter Bessenyei
will start his airplane take-off in the Varalagut
(Citadel Tunnel), then will fly over the Chain Bridge, and after a turn, will pass Below the bridge, right when the race cars are on it, thus making a giant loop.
The procession of F1 race cars will be lead up by the Hungarian participants of the Dakar Rally
, with Laszlo Palik
himself on one of the driver seats, and two of the drivers of the Historic Formula One cars will be none else than Niki Lauda
and Gerhard Berger

As I was browsing through our Photo Gallery
, I came across this one, “the Hungarian Sahara”, and it reminded me of an article I read about a week ago. By September 2007 the ASO will make a decision whether to start off the 2009 or 2010 Dakar Rally in Budapest
