Racing cars and David Hasselhoff in the same event!

There is life after the Sziget Festival in Budapest. Concretely at the Hungaroring, where racing and music will be the protagonist between the 29-31st of August, at the Acceleration Hungary. Acceleration is an international race and music festival combining top class racing with world class entertainment. The event was conceived by two racing professionals, Loek Bodelier and Theo van Kempen, who believe that motorsports should be more accessible and more about the entire family, so they made their own family festival. Among the 10 venues there will be Monza, Budapest, Slovakiaring, Navarra and Rijeka as well.

The Acceleration weekend contains actually two clearly identifiable programs: The Formula Acceleration taking place during the day is a car racing, where FA1 cars, Pickups and Legends compare their power. We can enjoy the competition in 3 different Acceleration Series: The FORMULA ACCELERATION 1 is a new single-seater series, where each team represents a nation. The specialty is that each car is mechanically identical, which ensures that the driver’s skills and team effort will be the most important component in the results. MW-V6 PICKUP SERIES is the worthy successor of Benelux Racing League V6. The pickup body is fitted to the chassis which is completed by a powerful 325 hp Ford engine. It’s better than Nascar! The third one, the LEGEND SUPERCUP is the peak of the 22 year old Legend Cars concept. The LSC is the ultimate evolution, keeping the original concept but using modern car racing ingredients for the real, unforgettable experience of the 21st century.

After the racing, the night is for partying: in the evening the show begins! First night with “Celebrate the ’80s and ’90s With The Hoff!” show with David Hasselhoff. The music goes back in time, when the stars of the 80’s and 90’s come on stage. 2 Unlimited, Haddaway, Samantha Fox, Sabrina, Vengaboys, Turbo B & Snap!, DJ Sash! and Twenty 4 Seven are coming. Get ready! On Saturday the ground will shake with a variety of international DJs, who bring their latest hits during the Acceleration Dance party. The stage is so close to the famous racetracks of Hungaroring, that actually it’s built inside the paddock.
