The DTM last raced in 1988 at the 4.381km Hungaroring that consists of seven right-hand turns and seven left-handers.
The race is held over a distance of 41 laps, which equates to 179.621 km. This is, overall, the second shortest race distance of the year after the Nürburgring.
"Budapest is a beautiful and very challenging circuit and I've already achieved a podium there in GP3 in 2010,” said Robert Wickens, driver of the FREE MAN'S WORLD Mercedes AMG C Coupé.
“With its many narrow, twisty turns and very few straights, it's almost like a street circuit that's actually a permanent race track. The driver always has plenty to do on a lap around the Hungaroring, and there are few places where you can relax.”
