MotoGP: Stars and fans arrive at the Spielberg

The campsites are filling up, the fans are entering the Spielberg, the stars have arrived – MotoGP is here! The “NeroGiardini Motorrad Grand Prix von Österreich 2016” has arrived at the Red Bull Ring and with the Public Pit Walk on Thursday the comeback of the motorcycle world championship has officially started.

The stars are looking forward, as Marc Marquez admitted at the first press conference. “Yesterday in Graz I noticed that the fans here are fantastic”, said the leader in the world championship. Superstar Valentino Rossi has a very special relationship with the Spielberg: “The circuit is spectacular and the facilities fantastic. I got my first podium finish in my career here.” That was in 1996 – and today? “The tarmac is new, with good grip, no bumps and it’s very quick”, as Rossi described the Red Bull Ring.

Fan-highlight in the pit lane

For the fans the MotoGP-weekend has already started. Thousands of motorbike-enthusiasts got a rare look behind the scenes at the Public Pit Walk and got a good look at the racing-machines of Marquez, Rossi and their colleagues. Especially for the 399th MotoGP-Grand-Prix a Black Hawk of the Austrian Air Force took to the sky carrying a special banner high above the Red Bull Ring.

 

First sessions are waiting

From 9 am on Friday it will get really loud for the first time: The free practice sessions are on! The Moto3 will start the racing-weekend, immediately followed by the MotoGP at 09:55 am and the Moto2, that will complete the first sessions. For the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup and the ADAC Junior Cup powered by KTM it will already get serious on Friday: From 16:45 the qualifyings are waiting for the youngsters in both series.

Russkaja to put on a show

There will also be plenty of action off the track at the Spielberg MotoGP Fan Village, where trial- and stunt-shows are waiting for the fans among many other spectacular acts. Russkaja will take to the main stage to finish off the day with a live show. Also the sky above the Spielberg will entertain the crowd, when the Flying Bulls Freestyle Helicopter Show will put on breathtaking stunts. The Spielberg MotoGP Bike City offers all the latest information from the world of motorcycling and the Streetfood Area will take care of all your culinary needs.
