Travel by Plane
The closest airport to the Hungaroring is Ferihegy International Airport, which is just a 16km drive from the city of Budapest.
Hungaroring by Car
Unlike many circuits, the Hungarian Grand Prix provides free parking at the event. Parking cannot be pre-booked however, so arrive early to ensure you get a space before capacity is reached. Taxis generally have a fixed price for the race weekend, but be sure that you have agreed a price before you leave to avoid receiving a high fee.
Train to Hungary Grand Prix
There are no trains that travel directly to the circuit, so this may not be the most ideal way to get to the circuit. However, if you don’t mind a short walk then the Szilasliget station is located a mile away.
Buses to Hungaroring
A free shuttle bus is provided by the circuit over the race weekend, leaving from Árpád Bridge in Budapest. This is a convenient way to travel to the event, although it should be noted that the drop-off point is still a 20 minute uphill walk from the station.
Accommodation near Hungary Grand Prix

You will find a wide range of hotels and hostel accommodation to suit your budget in Budapest, but book early to ensure that you receive the best price for you.
Camping at the Hungary Grand Prix
