Le Mans Winner 2017 joins line up of motorsport legends at Spielberg

From Helmut Marko in 1971 to Brendon Hartley in 2017: the Legends Parade at Spielberg includes a special journey through the history of the classic 24 hours of Le Mans.

The Legends Parade promises to be an emotional high point during the fourth running of the Formula One Grand Prix of Austria at the Red Bull Ring – but why?

Must-see motors …

Blast from the past: 10 of the most beautiful cars in the history of the Le Mans 24Hr will form up for the Legends Parade at Spielberg. From the Ferrari 512S to the Porsche 917K, the Porsche 936 and 962c, the 580HP, open 12-cylinder BMW engine, the Bentley Speed 8, the Audi R18 with a V6 capable of putting out more than 500HP right up to the revolutionary Porsche 919 Hybrid – it promises to be a feast for the eyes and ears.

… legendary drivers

At the wheels of these amazing cars will be the racing greats who helped to write the legend. Jean Alesi, Gerhard Berger, Neel Jani, Tom Kristensen, Helmut Marko, Dieter Quester, Guy Smith, Hans-Joachim Stuck, Mark Webber and the reigning winner of the 24Hrs du Mans, Brendon Hartley, will celebrate over half a century of motorsport history at Spielberg.

Hot laps and sore feet – memories on the road to victory from the 1971 champion

The famous Porsche 917K that Helmut Marko drove to victory at the 1971 24 Hours of Le Mans will be on show in the F1 FanZone. This historic car with its classic livery can’t be driven at the moment so Dr Marko, who is the motorsport consultant to Red Bull Racing, will step on the gas in the race-winning 1970 model. This famous car with its 12 cylinders, 580bhp output and its radical aerodynamic layout, pushed drivers to the limit as they bid for the top. “If the set-up was good, it was a dream car, but very temperamental in the wind. I always watched out for the flags, to counteract the effect of the wind,” Dr Mark recalled. “At the end of the race, I could barely hold the receiver, because my left hand was in spasm from operating the gear box. And I had blisters on my foot because of the heat from the brake pedal. But none of that compared to the incredible feeling after my victory and went on for a further 12 hours with our celebrations.”
