Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix  – 2015

Still to come 38 days!

July, 24 – 26 – 2015.

Many may be aware … but as a refresher, in brief about the Hungaroring! It was built almost three decades ago as a rarity, the first one beyond the Iron Curtain and now it is still special as the 3rd. behind Monte-Carlo and Monza to have continuously featured in the year’s race calendar.  The racing circus  at Mogyoród is preparing a superb event this year on its  30th anniversary of the Hungarian Formula 1 Grand Prix. To this forthcoming occasion the organizer staff have been planning a jubilee concert as to pay homage to its history of the three decades Hungarian Formula 1. with special additional programs Formula 1 fans and … an awesome Jubilee concert!

At the end of Friday’s free practice within the collaboration Hungary’s well-known, best musicians, singers and groups will entertain the audience. These musicians were selected by the organizer staff, which was not at all an easy task to make the final decision to bring on stage on this special occasion. Finally, the 30 Hungarian individuals in the music business were chosen, which was a tough job, when you consider how many extraordinary good musicians are in Hungary. Finally the selection was made, so those interested in the Formula1 Circus will receive an extra gift added to the 30 jubilee as  to see  the well-known musician  and hear several music styles, pops-on-the pops presented by a short concert.

At the press conference of to-day at the Hard Rock Cafe – Budapest, was revealed by the huge number of stars showing up,  to talk about their own connection to the sport cars and the Hungaroring Formula1.  Most of them have only been watching the circus through TV. Some been out at the Hungaroring as spectators and for some will be the first time to be at the race.

So after an extraordinary exciting day, when the sun goes down you can relax next by listening to concerts. Who will be the performers? … the list is long, so see the performers names rolling in the side-show. Most probably, all the visitors will find Taste-of- Their-Own-Music.
