Motorsport Racetrack Opens Near Lake Balaton
The Balaton Park Circuit racetrack has been officially opened in Balatonfőkajár, located off the M7 motorway just 85km from Budapest.

The 4,115-metre track with 16 corners is suitable for hosting all forms of car and motorsport events except for Formula One and MotoGP World Championship races.

Balaton Park Circuit board member Gianpaolo Matteucci said the track was financed by a group of private investors who have believed in the feasibility of the project from the start.

Construction of a 145-room, four-star hotel is also under way and will be completed shortly, with a direct view of the track from the rooms, he added.
