Motorcycle racing is set to return to Hungary for the first time in over three decades as MotoGP returns for the Hungarian Grand Prix.
A brand new track is being built in Budapest especially for the race. Organisers announced the circuit will be located in Debrecen – the country’s second-largest city. A three-hour flight from London, Debrecen is one of Hungary’s most important cultural cities. It was the capital during the revolution in the 1840s until the end of the Second World War.
The move comes as MotoGP looks to expand into Central Europe by building a world class circuit in the city. This means a thrilling racetrack that looks somewhat like Losail International Circuit in Qatar, but also great vantage points for fans in grandstands. Organisers have said they are taking inspiration from the Suzuka Circuit in Japan, with an epic esses section at the start of the lap.
Ticketing details for the Hungarian MotoGP, including grandstand and general admission tickets, have not yet been revealed. To be the first to hear the details and how to get tickets, sign up for alerts.
