For the fifth time, it will make motorsport history come alive.

The Legends Parade has in the past make jaws drop with historic Le Mans cars, the legends of the turbo era and all Austrian Formula 1 drivers still alive today. During the "Formula 1 eyetime Großer Preis von Österreich", fans will be taken back to a truly special epoch of motorsport. The Deutsche Rennsport-Meisterschaft (DRM) – the predecessor of today’s DTM was characterised by spectacular cars with race-worthy chassis, massively flared wheel arches, wings and turbocharged engines. The drivers in this year’s Legends Parade include Niki Lauda, Gerhard Berger and Dieter Quester as well as domestic skiing legend Franz Klammer in his Alfa Romeo Group 5 race car.

Apart from many other successful drivers, Joachim “Striezel” Stuck, who won the very first DRM in 1972, is also part of the lineup. “Back then, the DRM was not just a great series, but the best thing in Germany, and other countries envied us because of it,” Stuck raves about this good old time.
