Hungaroring: a ten-month makeover next year

July 30, 2018

Hungaroring, the site of the Formula One Hungarian Grand Prix car race is to be completely transformed after next year's event. According to the CEO of Hungaroring, Zsolt Gyulay, it will be difficult to destroy and rebuild the place within ten months.

"The difficulty of building and restructuring is that
it costs a lot of money, since it's about 130 hectares. On the other hand,
every year a race needs to be arranged, that is to say, the place must be
demolished and built in ten months, because the construction cannot exceed its
planned period," Zsolt Gyulay said in a television interview on Monday.

He was of the view that "the Hungarian Grand Prix has a
very good tradition and it is very Hungarian. the track is a bit old-fashioned
but it is afavorite for pilots, fans, everyone. The proximity of Budapest is a
determinant factor." At the same time, he acknowledged that the
33-year-old facility was aging and cannot really compete with modern tracks.
