Landowners kept in the dark about new Hungarian MotoGP track to be built on their farmlands

After the failed Balatonring project in Sávoly more than ten years ago, the current government is once again trying to build a MotoGP track in Hungary. The 500-hectare circuit will cost HUF 65 billion, in Eastern Hungary, near a small town called Hajdúnánás. The first upcoming Hungarian Grand Prix will take place in 2023. The project will begin with land expropriation this year, affecting dozens of families and landowners. We managed to talk to a few stakeholders who stated that they have not yet received any official document on when and for how much they will have to sell their property.
