Hungarian GP promoter Frank passes away

Tamas Frank, the promoter and main driving force behind the Hungarian GP, has passed away at the age of 65.

Frank was reportedly found dead at his apartment in Budapest this morning.

A close associate of Bernie Ecclestone, Frank was a familiar face in paddocks around the world. He was Vice President of the Hungaroring and of the MNASZ, the country’s motor sporting authority.

He also pushed the career of Hungarian F1 driver Zsolt Baumgartner.

His role in keeping the Hungarian GP going over the years via his personal connections with Ecclestone cannot be underestimated, and his death is thus a big loss for the country’s motor sport community.
