The first Hungarian Grand Prix was held in Budapest's Nepliget Park in 1936 when Tazio Nuvolari held off the all-conquering German teams in his underpowered Alfa Romeo. Racing returned to Hungary in the early sixties on temporary circuits at Ferhegy airfield and then near to Varosliget Park. That latter venue held a round of the European Touring Car Championship in 1963 and 1964 before the race was transferred to a slightly modified version of the 1936 Nepliget Park layout from 1966 to 1972. Hungary applied to the FIA for a round of the F1 World Championship on December 9 1984 and both parks were suggested as the venue before it was decided to build the Hungaroring instead.
