The Austrian Grand Prix is a Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile sanctioned auto race. The fearsome, original Osterreichring was originated in 1969 as a replacement for the Zeltweg airfield circuit. The track known today as the Red Bull Ring was more or less created over the winter of 1995-6, when Hermann Tilke was engaged to turn the Osterreichring into a shorter, more modern race track.
Race tracks don’t come much more picturesque than the Red Bull Ring, set in an idyllic natural bowl in the Styrian mountains. That makes for a pleasant environment for a Grand Prix, while if you’re after tourist attractions to visit after the race, look no further than the museum in Graz dedicated to the city’s favourite son: Arnold Schwarzenegger.
At the Red Bull Ring the scent of decades of exciting motorsport history lingers in the air. Jochen Rindt, Niki Lauda, Alain Prost and Michael Schumacher all raced at top speed around this legendary track.
