Camp Erotica evicted from Hungaroring
Last year the local authorities capitulated under the deluge and allowed a local entrepreneur to set up Camp Erotica to provide a hygienic haven for the trade to be carried out. It is thought that the field full of vans and tents did not quite tally with Formula 1's glamorous and sophisticated image, however, despite the officials' justification.
"During the race every year, we get extreme numbers of tourists, and they have a demand for this basic service," they said. "There has been pressure from police. So the local government chose the smaller evil."
Although the prostitutes have been evicted for this year, however, the Ôsexual no-favors zone' exists only in a 15-meter radius of the circuit, meaning that business is likely to continue unabated.
