Camping-trip: The most unusual Formula-1-duel of the year!

2 Aston Martins + 2 caravans = 1 fight between Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo at the Red Bull Ring. Can this end well? Probably not! There’s really only one question: Who gets to see the chequered flag first with his trailer …. we’ll show you in our video.

With only a few weeks remaining left before the “Formula 1 Großer Preis von Österreich 2017” kicks off in front of tens of thousands of fans from 7th to 9th of July, the Red Bull Ring became the site of an epic duel, that the world has never seen before. Piloting two Aston Martins, each with a caravan in tow, Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen took to the track in the most unusual F1-battle of the year. It was wheel-banging at the highest level that clearly said: “Camping-fans are welcome at the Red Bull Ring.”

“The action didn’t end that well for the caravans, but we had a lot of fun. Max caravan tipped first and then everything went like in a snowball-effect”, Daniel Ricciardo explained.

The cars used are Aston Martin Vanquish convertibles with 576 and 603 hp, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 3,8 seconds and probably the first Aston Martins with a tow-bar. Fun fact: The caravans were equipped with Pirelli-slicks to get better grip!

Here's the video of Max and Daniel and their caravans:

F1-feeling at the campsites around the Spielberg

Thousands of fans travel to the Mur Valley every year, who spend their weekend at the campsites around the Spielberg, where they are close to all the action and only a short walk from the race track. The campers, who are loyal fans, spread a truly unique atmosphere and are more than welcome at the Spielberg. Constant infrastructure-improvements make sure that the fans can have a good time on all three race-days. You can find all the information regarding the campsites at the Red Bull Ring HERE.

The friendly motorsports-festival with kids at the pilots-parade

The Spielberg makes sure you get the full “Experience-Package”, if you want to get really close to Formula 1. Over the whole weekend you will experience “The Friendly Motorsports-Festival” with F1-stars on the styrian green carpet, the legends parade, a public pitlane walk, the F1 FanZone, air- and stuntshows, safety-car-rides or the Ö3-concerts.

Something special for the youngest fans

Of course Projekt Spielberg has not forgotten about all the young fans: 20 kids will accompany the drivers to the pilots parade prior to the start of the race. You can find all the details about the application HERE. Children aged 14 and younger get in free of charge if accompanied by an adult with a valid ticket!
