Horsepower, Engines and Action

For weeks, fans of motor sport in and around Austria have been simmering with excitement ahead of the return of Formula 1 to Spielberg. Huge numbers are to be there from 19 to 22 June when Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton & Co. start their engines. Along with the Formula 1, the visitors to the Red Bull Ring can look forward to three further top-class racing series - GP2, GP3 and the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup will not only provide some additional race action but will give some Austrian talents the chance to prove their ability at a home race at the Red Bull Ring. Further highlights include the public pit lane walk, legends parade and air display.

The return of Formula 1 to Austria is sure to be an unforgettable experience for all involved. Visitors can look forward to a schedule full of action, spectacles and the typical flair of the surrounding region of Styria.

Motor sport up close and personal. The Red Bull Ring will host four race series from Thursday to Sunday.  Along with Formula 1, GP2, GP3 and the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup will race around the Spielberg circuit. There is plenty of added interest for Austrians – the Red Bull Racing F1 team of course, two Austrian teams in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup along with five drivers from the country to support – Rene Binder (GP2), Klaus Bachler, Clemens Schmid, Christopher Zoechling and Christoph Eng (all Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup).

As soon as Thursday, holders of a three-day pass will be able to get an insight right into the world of motor sport with a public pit lane walk. The entrance to the pit lane is located right by the fan village (exact schedule on page 2).

Legends up close and personal. All Formula 1 fans can look forward to a special treat on the Sunday. All nine living Austrian Formula 1 drivers – Helmut Marko, Dieter Quester, Niki Lauda, Hans Binder, Gerhard Berger, Karl Wendlinger, Alexander Wurz, Patrick Friesacher and Christian Klien – will make three honourary laps of the Red Bull Ring with their original cars from four decades. The cars will be available for close-up viewing from Thursday in the fan village.

 

Showtime. It is not only on the ground but the sky above Spielberg will also see a breath-taking show. On Friday there will be a Freestyle-Moto-X Show. On Saturday the Red Bull Sky Dive Team will demonstrate their daring manoeuvres above the heads of the spectators (as part of the Ö3 concerts). On Sunday, an air display with the Flying Bulls’ fleet and the Austrian Armed Forces is scheduled just before the Grand Prix starts. Hannes Arch, the Red Bull Air Race pilot and Styrian local, is to show his incredible ability as a stunt pilot.

Feast for the senses. Even if motor sport is to be the focal point, the weekend should prove beyond the Formula 1 to be an emotional experience for everyone, whatever their interests – and a real treat for all the senses. The Murtal region is to present its most appealing aspects with typical Styrian flair and provide local delicacies while the local pubs invite visitors to enjoy their cosy premises. In front of the gates of the Red Bull Ring the Ö3 concerts (featuring Sportfreunde Stiller and Sunrise Avenue among others) are set to create a sensation. DJs will be there too and traditional music will be played. Some 50 local Formula Una grid girls will be delighting eyes in the pit lane, while the smell of petrol and burning rubber will ensure a classic race atmosphere.
