WTCC Race of Hungary - 12-14/05/2017

Located less than 20 kilometres northeast of Budapest, the Hungaroring is famed for hosting the first Formula One grand prix behind the Iron Curtain in 1986. Although it has been ever-present on the F1 calendar since, the Hungaroring is established as a regular on the WTCC schedule. And the event’s popularity among home fans has rocketed thanks to the emergence of Honda’s Norbert Michelisz as a local hero, particularly following of his pole-to-flag victory in 2015. Last year’s event was the first on the resurfaced layout, complete with re-profiled kerbing, but rain on race day prevented lap records from falling.
