Reading Time: < 1 minute

A picture taken with a drone shows the newly constructed Balaton Park Circuit at Balatonfokajar, near Lake Balaton, southwest Hungary, 18 May 2023, two days after its official inauguration.

The 4.115km track featuring 16 bends was built to host regional and international motorsports events.

The circuit is located off the M7 motorway, 85km southwest of the capital city, Budapest.

The first event to be held at the circuit will be Porsche on Track, a two-week driving programme as part of the German marque’s 75th-anniversary celebrations, followed by a one-day Festival of Dreams on 10 June.

The facility, which hopes to host international racing from the 2024 season, has received over €200 million in investment and will be accompanied by a four-star hotel and museum.
