Top Court Annuls Amendment to Noise Protection Regulation at Car Race Tracks

Hungary’s Constitutional Court (Ab) annulled an amendment to noise protection regulations near car race tracks, citing breach of the right to a healthy environment, in a ruling published on Thursday.

A judge ruling in a lawsuit brought against the state-owned company running Hungaroring, the venue of the Formula One Hungarian Grand Prix, has turned to the top court.

The court ruled that the amendment raised the threshold for acceptable noise pollution.

According to the Hungarian constitution, legislation must not reduce already acquired levels of environmental protection, the top court stated.
