Ticket sales down for Hungarian Grand Prix race
In line with expectations, ticket sales for this year’s Hungaroring – the Hungarian Grand Prix – were down to 169,000 as compared to last year’s record of 247,000, the company in charge of the circuit informed Hungarian news agency MTI today.
Hungaroring Sport said the race on Sunday attracted approximately 67,000 racing enthusiasts as compared to 99,000 a year ealrier.
Observors speculate that the main reason for the dwindling popularity of the Hungarian venue is competition from the Austrian Grand Prix in Zeltweg, which was recently revived after more than a decade.
