Great Run IV: Budapest To Host Spectacular Motor And Air Show On Labour Day – Programme!

Tamás Székely 2016.04.26.

Race cars, motorbikes and trucks in the heart of Budapest? Yes, this is the Great Run (“Nagy futam”), which apart from being a fantastic and spectacular event for the spectators, has the explicit aim of bringing the motorsport closer to the people. This event has become a tradition in the Hungarian capital in recent years, allowing fans as close to the race cars, motorbikes, trucks and drivers as could never come true in a closed circuit. Hopefully, the weather will let fans enjoy the show next Sunday too. Check out the programme!
