The Hungarian Superenduro GP is moving to the MVM Dome
The field of the FIFA Superenduro World Championships will also visit Budapest in the 2023-24 season. Having sold out this year’s domestic competition, TRP Events will hold the event in Hungary’s largest event hall, MVM Dome, on February 3, 2024.
There was such great interest in this year’s Hungarian Superenduro GP that all tickets sold out weeks in advance. After achieving resounding success, the Superenduro GP Manager in Hungary, TRP Events, has decided to stage the competition at MVM Dome, the largest indoor event hall in Hungary, on February 3, 2024.
The date and location have also been confirmed by the FIA in the competition’s preliminary calendar 2023-24, according to which the season will start on November 25, 2023 in France, and the Tour in Hungary will be the fifth in a row.
MVM Dome: Hungary’s newest venue
MVM Dome is Europe’s newest and largest multifunctional event venue. Depending on the design, its capacity can be more than 20,000. The ceremonial handover of the hall took place on December 16, 2021, and shortly after the handover, it was already able to host the matches of the 2022 European Men’s Handball Championship.
The building features innovative and mixed-use spaces and special architectural solutions. The largest and most modern multi-functional event hall in Hungary, as well as its own building management solutions, its modern sound, light and visual equipment make it suitable for holding concerts, performances, family entertainment programs, corporate events and exhibitions.
A landmark event in Hungarian motorsport
The Hungarian Grand Prix at the Superenduro WC is usually the first major sporting event of the year in Hungary, and is particularly popular with both the drivers and the public. The track is praised by the members of the field and the audience’s interest has risen to such a level that the competition can be held in the largest hall in Hungary.
In terms of sporting results, this year’s event was particularly successful, with Norbert Zegovitz starting for the first time in the Class 1 Prestige, Mark Szycki winning the sprint and finishing second overall in the European Cup.
Superenduro ranking is quite an effort
Preparations for the 2023 Hungarian Superenduro GP have already begun in the summer, while the construction of the track itself began two days before the race, at night. 1,200 cubic meters, or approximately 1,600 tons of wet soil, 40 tons each of stone and wood, and 3.2 tons of fiberglass pipe were required to complete the track.
For the competition day itself, a total of three hundred people were certified for the event. Fifty radios, 3 km of cable, two truckloads of equipment, and countless colleagues were required to make everything work perfectly. The fact that 300 cups of coffee and a total of 270 cans of cola were consumed per day shows just how intense a test of strength these few days was for the organization’s participants.
