Dear Visitor,

Welcome to a town that preserves values in its past and is striving for an illustrious future, a town with an honorable past and a vigorous belief in its future.

Gödöllő is more than a colorful little suburb of Budapest. Its sights include some that are unique both nationwide as well as in Europe.

Hungary's biggest  baroque castle and smallest Marian column, the oldest baroque theatre, the largest portrait gallery of kings and queens, the second most important museum of agricultural instruments and machinery in the world and the first European Peace Gong can all be found here. Gödöllő is home to three unique exhibitions in Hungary: one is the only year round exhibition on secession; another is the only Holy Virgin museum and third is the National Scouting Collection.

In Gödöllő everything is there to make your sightseeing exciting. The pomp and magnitude of the monarchy suites, the elegance of the castle park in the royal castle mark the era of kings and monarchs. Interesting interiors recall Gödöllő's rich local history and its famous personages.

The Driving Centre opened its gate in 1998 and ever since it is Hungary’s most modern driving technique facility. The Centre is situated in the exclusive area of Hungaroring.

Our team members and instructors have a strong blend of professional and personal experience and understanding. Besides the traditional driving technique courses we offer a wide range of other services:
  • Fuel-efficient driving course
  • Defensive course
  • High-speed driving technique course
  • E-Learning 
All driving technique centres have artificial resin road surface and water walls and so do we. All of our tracks are covered with artificial resin and we use water walls as well. The grip of the wheels is the same on this artificial resin surface as a wet, icy road surface. The artificial resin surface serves two purposes: due to the slippery surface the car already slips at a lower speed however this practice doesn’t damage the wheels. In case of a higher speed, the car acts the same way on dry surface as well. You can practice safely how the car acts in these circumstances and how to correct the steering.

The Groupama Driving Centre organizes the events of Hungaroring Off-road Centre and the Hungaroring Motorcycle Academy. Our Centre also organizes the events of Hungaroring for children at the Miniring.

The number of the attendants is significant: Each year we have 4-5000 participants on our courses.
It is really important for us to provide high-standard services for our customers. In order to guarantee the high standards we have a strict quality system.

35 years has passed since the Hungaroring was opened in 1986 between the hills of Mogyoród nearby the beautiful Hungarian capital city. A race track from nowhere started to operate at that time in one of the most professional sports of the world, in Formula 1. Hungaroring has been part this prestigious championship series for 35 years now, it is still special as the second behind Monza to have continuously featured in the F1 race calendar.

The great race tracks of the world, among them Hungaroring in the past three and a half decades, are not only to host the world championships and, as their capacity allows, provide opportunity to practice for those passionate about motorsports, but to serve as a sort of think tank hub of the automotive life of the given country.

It is not possible to over-emphasise, acknowledge and praise Hungaroring as one of the twenty-some race tracks that hold the permission to host a world championship run. It is a privilege that requires constant effort and the delivery of the best in everything – and this is exactly what we do.

Apart from Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix we host such world races as the FIA’s World Touring Car Cup, including not only regular Hungarian participants, but a World Cup winner as well in Norbert Michelisz. We can also mention the worthy popular European Truck Racing Championship series with another Hungarian great driver, two-time European Champion Norbert Kiss.

Hungaroring is the motorsport centre of Hungary, offering great opportunities not only to those who love cars and motorbikes but also for those who are passionate about speed: they can practice in the Driving Centre operating within our premises or enjoy formula car adventure drives…
Our race track is alive and moves forward dynamically. Come and experience it yourself!
