The DTM leads the way among racing series for fan proximity. On the weekend of 22nd ‑ 24th September, the Red Bull Ring will be hosting a top-class programme of racing that features two rounds of this year’s DTM and two rounds of the 2023 ADAC GT Masters as well as competition in the three partner series – Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland, Porsche Carrera Cup Benelux and BMW M2 Cup. Aside from the action on the track, your ticket for the DTM at the Red Bull Ring also entitles you to get a close-up view of the drivers and cars.

DTM Fan Zone

Spending some time in the DTM Fan Zone over the weekend is going to be worth your while: the merchandise stalls will be stocking the latest team/driver memorabilia and fan accessories, and on the giant screen, you can follow developments on the race track while consuming refreshments purchased from one of the numerous food trucks. There is something for every taste – from grandma’s grilled chicken to sweet potato fries and salad bowls.

The little ones can let off steam at the Kids Area (including ball pool, child make-ups or Kids Racers). There is even a special course set up for the young racing enthusiasts. On Saturday and Sunday, the Red Bull Ring mascots Ringo and Bulli junior will delight the little ones (and parents) with autographs and selfies.

And of course, the stars of the DTM, the ADAC GT Masters and the partner series will also be putting in an appearance. A Kronehit DJ will provide musical variety on the event stage. Former ski stars Hans Knauß and Nicole Schmidhofer also stop by. Kronehit presenter Katie Weleba will lead through the entertainment programme. (Saturday and Sunday).

IG Fan Box

You should definitely plan a ‘pit stop’ in the IG Fan Box. Here, you can familiarise yourself with the IG trading platform and also follow the races live at the command centre like the team managers. In the Pit Stop Game, you can show whether you’ve got what it takes. Prizes awaits you at the pit stop game. Insider tip: From the IG Fan Box it is possible to catch a glimpse of the adjacent Team Engstler Box .

E-Sport Area

The E-Sport Area will have RaceRoom simulators which ticket holders can use free of charge. The simulators have the “From Sim to DTM” design. The lap times driven can be tracked on a screen. Climb into the cockpit and show us what you’re made of.

Insider tip: “Beat the Driver”. If you set the best time in the simulator, you will compete against current DTM title fighter Thomas Preining in the simulator on Saturday at 17:30.
