A quick 500 mile dash across Europe from Hockenheim to Budapest and the middle race of the season before a five week hiatus.
The Hungaroing ran its first race in 1936 in Budapest and attracted a huge crowd but unfortunately due to the ensuing world war the race did not return for a further fifty years in 1986.

The original circuit was almost eight kilometres long and consisted of two long straights with a long "Eastern" corner in the forest and a U-turn inside Hockenheim joining them together.
