Auto GP Takes to the Streets of Budapest

Involvement with the Budpest parade alongside the Formula 1 and DTM racers has thrust the Auto GP series into the spotlight. Local hero Tamas Pal Kiss was there to greet fans only shortly after scoring his maiden Auto GP win at Le Castellet.

A perfect weekend for Kimiya Sato (Euronova Racing), who won both races at the Hungaroring circuit, increased his lead in the series’ standings. Sato became the third driver in the history of Auto GP to sweep an entire weekend after Antonio Pizzonia and Adrian Quaife-Hobbs. The win was dedicated in memory of Ayrton Senna, 20 years after the tragic Imola crash.

Reigning champion, Vittorio Ghirelli (Super Nova) started from the pole but could not match the pace of rival Sato therefore settled with a solid second.

The next round commences on the 1st June and will be held in Monza, Italy.
