Hi!Is there someone here that has experience whit the race in Hungary regarding the rumors i hear about possible places around this track where you can watch the race whitout tickets?
if not maybe someone has experience whit the "general admission" location on track is it really what this video shows for 80 euro?

but i am primarily interested for free watch locations around track experiences?

IIRC there is no way you can watch race without tickets... I think there is small hill outside the fence, but you'll need some telescope;) Or binoculars at least - and even then I don't think it will be good experience. Correct me if I'm wrong though, I was there 2 years ago.

This place from video is indeed general admission - great spot to watch the race, you can see back straight, last sector and part of main straight, also there is a big screen in front. But you have to be REALLY early on the raceday to get there. This is the most packed place.

One more thing - while watching from distance you won't be able to smell petrol.
You can smell it in this GA spot, also it is mighty loud there.

I have attended the Hungarian GP since 2006, this year will be my 7th attandance.
Loads of Polish fans came to the race till last year for obvious reasons. I can still remember they always built big "grandstands" from metall rods and they climed on top ot those. They had quite a good look at the circuit, but obviously they were pretty far away from the track. Apart from this there is no way to get a glimpse of any part of the circuit.
I have been lots of times at the track, some weeks ago at WTCC and I am set to visit in again in two weeks' times, so I think I know every single part of the track. The feature you linked in was captured at a place which is inside the fences.
