The countdown to the two-wheel festival of the year is on. Between 18th and 20th August, motorcycling enthusiasts will be revelling in the party atmosphere at the Red Bull Ring as they watch the world’s top riders in action. Away from the race track, fans will be kept well entertained by a programme packed with side-events such as the Pit Lane Walk, Meet the Riders and Hero Walk on the Styrian Green Carpet. The CryptoDATA Motorrad Grand Prix von Österreich 2023 offers you the opportunity to see the stars of the sport up close and personal at the MotoGP Bike City.
The gates of MotoGP Bike City will open on Thursday 17th August at 12:00. Over the course of the four-day event, a string of DJs and bands such as Desperate Brasswives, Egon7, Folkshilfe, WE SALUTE YOU (World’s biggest Tribute to AC/DC) and BREAK FREE Queen Tribute will keep the atmosphere at the Red Bull Ring at fever pitch. This venue for the side-events is located directly behind the Steiermark Grandstand and is accessible to all ticketholders. In addition to the musical offerings, you can also look forward to spectacular Red Bull Masters of Dirt FMX shows and ARAS freestyle shows.
Anyone thinking that more is not possible – is wrong! There is still a lot to discover in the MotoGP Bike City, such as merchandise shops with the latest collections from the MotoGP teams and our Playseat© simulators. In the Legends Tent you can not only see selected KTM bikes up close, but also a selection of vehicles and bikes from our in-house fleet. Of course, your physical well-being is also taken care of in the MotoGP Bike City.
Great moments are guaranteed at Meet the Riders when Brad Binder and the rest are interviewed on the event stage. The Hero Walk on the Styrian Green Carpet presents the best opportunities for autographs and selfies. This is due to take place on Saturday and Sunday morning in front of the Welcome Center of the Red Bull Ring and will feature the star names of MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3.
