There’s some great news for motorsport fans and especially for MotoGP freaks: the success story of the premier class on two wheels is set to continue at Spielberg. Dorna Sports CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta and Mark Mateschitz have extended the partnership between the circuit and the series owners until 2030, thereby making a strong commitment to the Red Bull Ring and to the Steiermark region of Austria. The decision was announced just a few months before this year’s „Motorrad Grand Prix von Österreich“ is due to take place. The agreement secures the future of MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 in the heart of this red-white-red motorsport-loving country for many more years to come. The next time Brad Binder and the other top riders line up together will be at the home race of Red Bull KTM Factory Racing on the weekend of 16th – 18th August.


More than a million MotoGP fans since 2016

Traditionally held in August, the MotoGP weekend at the Red Bull Ring attracts hundreds of thousands of fans to Spielberg where they celebrate their shared passion for motorsport. Well over a million have come through the gates since 2016. In the run-up to this year’s Austrian Grand Prix, Carmelo Ezpeleta and Mark Mateschitz have signed a contract extension until 2030.

Motorsport entertainment amid the joys of the open air

On the 2023 MotoGP weekend – the biggest motorbike event of the year in Austria – more than 170,000 fans were there to generate an exuberant atmosphere against the fabulous backdrop of the Austrian Alps. They enjoyed a show of horsepower from the world’s best riders, combined with motorsport entertainment and concerts in MotoGP Bike City. This year, fans will be treated to double the racing action on the weekend of 16th ‑ 18th August, as the contestants vie for world championship points in Saturday’s sprint race and the Grand Prix on Sunday. If you’re planning to enjoy this spectacle live and up close, weekend tickets and seats for the race on Sunday are still available, but you need to move fast!
