History of the Hungarian Grand Prix

Delve into the brief history of motorcycle Grand Prix racing in Hungary, a country two MotoGP™ Legends have won in

After it was announced that Dorna Sports have agreed a deal that could see Hungary return to the motorcycle Grand Prix calendar in 2022, why not take a quick look back at the history of the Hungarian GP to whet the appetite?

Only two Grand Prix weekends have been hosted on Hungarian soil and both have been at the world-renowned Hungaroring. The first was in 1990 when now-MotoGP™ Legend and five-time 500cc World Champion Mick Doohan took his maiden premier class victory on board his Honda, with American John Kocinski and Italy’s Loris Capirossi picking up victories in the intermediate and lightweight classes. Two years later in 1992, Grand Prix motorcycling was a again at the Hungaroring and this time, it was another MotoGP™ Legend who claimed maximum points in the premier class: Eddie Lawson on board his Cagiva machine.

Will the Hungarian Grand Prix return 30 years later? It certainly looks that way!
