Five good reasons to be there at the Red Bull Ring Classics

There are no excuses for missing out on the Red Bull Ring Classics, and we give you five good reasons here. Tickets can be purchased at the circuit on the day.

1. Back to the future

… or rather memories of the past in the shape of such automotive gems as the DeLorean DMC12. The car achieved cult status in the Hollywood trilogy ‘Back to the Future’. A grand total of 8,000 units of the 130hp gullwing rolled off the assembly line, of which around 4,000 are still in existence. One of them will be on display in the Fan Zone alongside Eleanor from ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ , the Yenko Camaro from „2Fast2Furious“ and General Lee Dodge Charger from „The Dukes of Hazzard“.

2. No fewer than seven contests

The racing series at the Red Bull Ring Classics reads like a Who’s Who of historic motorsport. For example, the Touring Car Golden Era, in which Peter Mücke will be driving his Ford Turbo Capri. The vehicle is an original with which Ford blew away the opposition in the late 1970s and early 1980s (with the exeption of BMW). You can watch these 600-horsepower cannonballs competing at the Red Bull Ring Classics.

3. The ‘Red Sow’ at Spielberg

On 25th July 1971, a racing icon was born at the Spa-Francorchamps 24-hour race. The Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL (AMG) with a displacement of 6.3 litres crossed the finish line in first place. Instead of the successful factory drivers Lauda, Stuck or Mass, however, it was the lesser-known pairing of Hans Heyer and Clemens Schickentanz who secured the class victory for AMG. The German press nicknamed the racing car ‘die rote Sau’ (the Red Sow), thereby assuring its legendary status. What happened to the original car is unclear. But the first-class replica Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3 Rote Sau will not disappoint.

4. Return of the Schumacher Ferrari

Schumacher – Ferrari – Spielberg: it’s a combination that features large in the F1 history books. Schumacher’s Ferrari, in which he finished 6th in the 1997 Austrian GP, will be on display and in action at the Red Bull Ring Classics. You will be able to inspect it up close in the Fan Zone and also watch it lapping the race track. In figures: 3.0 litre naturally aspirated V10 engine, 750 hp, top speeds of 340 km/h.

Spectacular air show

The Red Bull Rotorwings Formation Team will be whizzing through the air at speeds of up to 180 km/h. Their gyrocopters will be performing complex formation routines and delivering sensational pyrotechnics. A fabulous display of flying skill that will leave spectators gaping with amazement. “It looks really good,” pilot Peter Metzger, “especially when we descend vertically in autorotation through our own smoke.”

Box office opening hours:

Sunday: 08:00 – 16:30* Main box office (in front of the main stand and Fan Zone box office)
