HUN - HUNGARY
FERIHEGY
Description The airport of Budapest hosted the Hungarian Grand Prix in 1961 (June 11th), 1962 (June 10th), 1965 (September 19th) and 1966 (June 12th), for Formula Junior/Formula 3 cars.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to come up with a track layout. It was likely changed during the years, as the circuit was layed down with bunch of tyres on the airfield’s tarmac, as you can see on the footage linked below.
