Biathlon and Formula 1? Yes, that works!

Austrias biathlon relay-team paid a visit to the „Formula 1 Großer Preis von Österreich 2016“. Before the race started, they wouldn’t miss a visit to the “Family Area” surrounding the famous “Bull of Spielberg”. Why? Because you could shoot on biathlon-targets there! And of course there was no way Austrias wintersports-stars would miss that.

For Dominik Landertinger it already was the second time he visited the Formula 1. “I’m generally a huge fan of motorsports”, said the biathlon-star about his passion – and he particularly likes Spielberg as he excitedly admits: “The setting is like in a dream. I feel it is perfect at the Red Bull Ring. It is a brilliant location and a great promotion for Austria.”

The “Family Area” also appeals to Landertinger very much – not only because of the laser-shooting. “It’s great that kids can do other sports here. They enjoy that and it is important to motivate kids and teens for sports. It is a cool thing”, said an impressed biathlon-star.

That it is possible to go cross-country-skiing is another feature of the Red Bull Ring that Landertinger likes – according to him the course is ideally suited for that. How about a biathlon on the track around the “Bull of Spielberg”? “It would be sensational! It doesn’t have to be a world cup straight away. But you could do a showrace with the biggest stars. That would be a huge event!"
