EDUCATING YOUNG GENERATIONS

Attract and support the young people – since they are the future. The motto of Hungaroring is clear and logical, because for a race track the importance of a young generation who are successful in the motorsports is equal to that of the new generation of supporters. These two are obviously closely connected. At the Motorbike Academy everybody can familiarize themselves with the basics of the sport from the smallest ones to older children, not to mention Miniring, where the obvious aim is not racing but the emphasis is on road safety education and to popularize motorization among children. They will be the spectators of the future. Those who love speed but are satisfied to watch the events from the side of the track. Hungaroring is trying to provide heroes for children who inspire them during their everyday lives. 
Because it is them who signal the way for the young ones, who are the examples to follow. Hungaroring, due to its profile, obviously opens towards technical sports. 


Norbert Michelisz, one of the best-known sports person of Hungary who consecutively received the Sportsman of the Year prize in the past three years at the Gala of Sport Stars and who attracts up to eighty-thousand spectators each year to Hungaroring for the Hungarian run of the World Touring Car Championship. It also means that we could not have been able to find a better person than him to popularize our programmes. 
Michelisz races in one of the most popular speed car race series of the world, regularly wins runs achieving podium positions and has a word in whatever he comments on – people pay attention to him, be it adults or children. Norbi is the face of our Driving Centre. 
In representation of the ladies, Edina Bús is who we introduce to the young people as inspiration: Edina first flashed her lion claws in the Lotus Ladies Cup (winning several championships), and since then has tried her skills in lower categories as well – mainly successfully. It is not an exaggeration to say: Edina Bús is the best Hungarian female motorsport racer who is an equal contestant with men. To extend our focus also to the fans of speed on two wheels, we have chosen a highly successful sports person from among the Hungarian motorbike racers too. He is Adrian Gyutai, champion of the Alps-Adriatic Challenge and Hungarian Champion and is an authentic voice talking to the motorbikers. „Racing is not a mere sport but a lifestyle.” – the young racer says whose devotion and humbleness is an inspiration to all. 
Máté Szántó follows in his footsteps who practically learned the basics of speed on two wheels here at Hungaroring, and however he is only ten years old, he already has a lot of victories under the belt in the fifty-cubic cm category.

ROAD SAFETY, ACCIDENT PREVENTION, IMPROVING THE CULTURE OF TRAFFIC

Safety and prevention. These are the two key words of the mission in society that Hungaroring Sport Zrt. is carrying out through its subsidiary, Groupama Garancia Driving Centre, and which contains as its main elements improving road safety, educating children for conscious road use and environmental awareness.


Our Driving Centre has been playing a major role for years in educating the Hungarian drivers in road safety. Our social responsibility and dedication focuses mainly on safety and prevention, and also (as mentioned above) we support sportspeople who have achieved high success in motorsports and contributed to the glory of Hungary on international level, thus providing inspiration for the younger generations. 
To act for children. To do our best in ensuring that our children are safe on their way home from school for example, to make them aware of the basic rules of traffic and its etiquette. This „mission” has always been very important to Hungaroring and the Driving Centre. The management of our Formula-1 track believe that our common, complex road safety programmes contribute a lot to the safety of children – the programme is called Miniring, and during camps and courses the children are educated by trained road safety instructors using playful activities to learn the basics. 
Of course we know that in achieving our goals we inevitable need to co-operate with educational institutes – schools, kindergartens – and to include the teachers who contribute greatly to the efficiency of our road safety programmes.
The goal is clear, our programmes are ready, now we only have to make them available to the widest audience of children groups.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT, ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

One of the oldest co-operating partner of Hungaroring is the Széchenyi István University of Győr, whose students visit our race track a few times a year to offer them a glimpse behind the scenes. They have the opportunity to ride on the Formula-1 asphalt as well as in the Driving Centre in order to get a practical picture of the science they learn in theory. Engineers of the fields of vehicle and traffic design may get a practical experience at us.
An even older relationship exists between Hungaroring and the Szent István University of Gödöllő in which we participated in the event called The Night of Scientists, giving a performance by bicycle, car and motorbike and the audience has the opportunity to try the seat-belt simulator as well.
The Developer Team of the University also enters the Shell Eco Marathon which aims to encourage the students to design ultra-energy saving vehicles – which can be tested at our race track in a safe environment.

Save, save. This is what we hear all the time, and is also a valid target in road traffic. Especially if it is possible without any special effort, simply following a few good advice – for example given by the instructors of Groupama Driving Centre at Hungaroring. Instead of approaching the question from very far and talking about hybrid cars or specially designed fuel saver engines or electric cars, we offer a more handy solution. At our Driving Centre we give you practical advice for road users concerning achieving maximum performance of the car while protecting the environment. 
Our company has this aim in focus during its daily operations...

Artificial lake: water walls and sprinkles that are used in the Driving Centre are supplied from an artificial lake, thus minimizing the use of drinking water and saving the environment.
Water cleaners installed on taps: three-fold cleaning (physical, chemical, biological) results in no waste water, but it is not distilled water. We do not use plastic cups, nor plastic bottles, still have unlimited access to clean water, even in carbonated version.
... and of course we keep it in focus in our external activities as well.
At our courses we place great emphasis on fuel saving, which, besides being purse-friendly also significantly reduces the emission of harmful substances. 


Today’s modern vehicles are equipped with more and more efficient engines, in line with EU regulations. Reduced emission and lower fuel consumption go hand in hand. The question is increasingly whether the driver is able to make use of the car’s potential. For it is possible to get from A to B within the same time with a six and a half litre consumption as well as with five or five and a half litre. And this is a spectacular difference.
How to achieve it?

With practice and experience gained during a test drive.
In our training the average is a 5-12 per cent reduction in fuel consumption – with this in mind it may be worth to calculate what it means in a family with one or two cars or in a company with 20-800 vehicles. 
The future begins at us.

In co-operation with Nissan Sales CEE Kft we have installed two electric recharge stations at Hungaroring. Thanks to this we can provide driving technique courses for environmentally friendly electric cars as well, in order to promote accident prevention in this yet narrow but ever growing segment.

COUNTRY IMAGE, TOURISM

Formula-1 is an attraction. At the moment there are countries fighting for the right to host a world championship run, this is why it is an especially great value that the Hungarian Grand Prix is the third in the line of the most traditional venues of F1.

To host a Formula-1 run each country must pay copy right fee but it means a lot of tourists and huge revenues for the given country, not to mention that during the weekend of the Hungarian Grand Prix not only our race track but the attractions of Budapest also appear on international television broadcasts, meaning it is a very important event considering country image. Competitors and teams love this race partly because of the proximity of the capital – just like the fans who can combine fun with „fun” the race with holiday. 

According to studies, the Hungarian Grand Prix contributes a HUF 17,4 billion to the national GDP, generating a HUF 7,5 billion in taxes. Live coverage of the run is viewed by an audience of 69 million people worldwide meaning HUF 5,3 billion value in media. Considering the last Hungarian Grand Prix there were 10,854 articles in the printed press mentioning Hungary.

As for the viewing data in the past years 2013 was the record year when during the four days (Thursday pit lane walk with 38 thousand visitors) altogether 247 thousand spectators came to witness the race. Last year we had 169 thousand visitors during the three days (22 thousand on Thursday). Visitors, both Hungarian and international, visit Hungaroring beyond Grand Prix weekend too where they get a glimpse behind the scenes. They can walk where the F-1 people walk, take photos on the podium, visit the statue park commemorating the champions and Race Control where the big decisions are made.
