Fans watching the Boss GP

The Boss GP is like the Premier League of F1 cars. The four-letter acronym BOSS stands for ‘Big Open Single Seater’. Consequently, only the big and powerful formula racing cars of yesteryear qualify for the grid. One of the historical “delicacies” is Gerhard Berger’s Benetton B197 from the 1997 season, which is driven by the German Ulf Ehninger. Marco Ghiotto from Italy sits in an F2 racing car driven by Charles Leclerc. The Viennese Stefan Eisinger-Sewald takes to the slopes with a Ralt Formula 3000 in the famous Rothmans design.

In 2024, the racing series will celebrate its 30th anniversary and will bring the fastest and most exciting vehicles to the Red Bull Ring Classics.

Hard Facts Boss GP:

  • Boss GP Racing Series was inaugurated in 1995
  • Authorized by the FIA ​​as an International Championship
  • Racing takes place in four categories (Boss GP, Open, Formula and Super Lights)
  • The race gets off to a rolling start

Motorsport fans can look forward to action-packed and thunderous motorsport at its best on the weekend of 9th ‑ 11th June at Spielberg.
