Hungaroring

The Hungaroring Circuit in Hungary. At the start of the 1980s there was a desire for a Grand Prix to be held behind the Iron Curtain and negotiations took place with the Soviet Union with a view to a race being held in Moscow. In the summer of 1983 however, the attention turned away from Moscow and towards Budapest in Hungary.

At first a street race through Budapest was suggested, but in the end the decision was taken to build a brand new circuit in a valley 19 kilometres outside Budapest. The track opened in 1986 and it held its first Formula One event in August that year. It was a huge success and almost 200,000
fans showed up.
