International GT Open

International GT Open - 22-23 June 2024

GT Open at the Hungaroring again

In recent years, the Hungaroring has become an almost unmissable stop in one of the most prestigious European GT championships. The International GT Open field will return to Hungary on 22-23 June 2024. They will be joined by a series of exciting support races, and as in previous years, spectators will be able to take a look around the paddock during the weekend.

The International GT Open entered its 19th season in April. The championship will consist of eight rounds this year, with the Hungaroring being the fourth stop of the season. Under the familiar rules, the weekend will feature one seventy- and one sixty-minute race for drivers in three categories. Six manufacturers' GT3 cars will be represented in this year's field; Audis, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, McLarens, Mercedes and Porsches will battle out for the points. Among the drivers are Audi's most experienced driver Christopher Haase, Lamborghini's most experienced drivers Leonardo Pulcini and Rolf Ineichen and Ferrari's Vincent Abril.

A special feature of this year's Hungaroring weekend will be the return of three Formula championships: the well-known Euroformula Open, which will be joined by the always crowded Formula Regional and the British GB3 championship.

In the Euroformula Open, the German Team Motopark team will field the most drivers in 2024, including Levente Révész, who finished the season with a race win last year. The cars in the Euroformula Open are identical, with the 575kg Dallara 320s powered by a 240bhp two-litre engine. Among the drivers will be Spain's Lorenzo Fluxá, considered a major talent, and Rubens Barrichello's younger son Fernando.

Formula Regional will also feature a single 270bhp Formula 4 car, and as usual, the field will be large, with over 35 cars entered. In 2024, the series will continue to offer young drivers the chance to develop their talents under the wings of well-known and respected teams such as Arden Motorsport, ART GP, MP Motorsport, Prema Racing, Saintéloc Racing, Trident Motorsport and Van Amersfoort Racing.

The GB3 category, also a formula car category, is a championship run by the British BRDC organisation and will be in its ninth season in 2024. It will feature both professional teams and privately funded drivers. They will compete in identical Tatuus MSV-022 cars powered by two-litre, 250bhp Mountune engines. They are really lightweight, equipped with a halo, and comply with the latest safety standards. The 24 drivers will compete in three races over the course of the race weekends.

This year's special feature is the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland as a support race. The German manufacturer's longest-running cup will be in its 35th season in 2024. This year, 25 regular drivers will be behind the wheel of the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, a 500+ horsepower race car. Last year's champion Dutchman Larry ten Voorde, who is aspiring for his fourth title this year, will of course be in the No. 1 car, but he will be joined by 10 newcomers, several ‘gentleman drivers’ and a youngster aged just 17. Two 30-minute races will be completed over the weekend.

The Swift Cup Europe will also be staged with two races, with many Hungarian participants, for whom the Hungaroring will be the second round of the 2024 season.

Tickets can be purchased in advance at gpticketshop.hu or even onsite near Gate 8. For both Saturday and Sunday, the grandstand ticket costs 5000 HUF, the combined ticket (grandstand + paddock) 7000 HUF, and the additional ticket for the paddock costs 3000 HUF onsite.
