When 24 riders line up to start at the Red Bull Ring with their 157 kg rockets with over 250 hp, a nail-biting race that keeps you on the edge of your seat is guaranteed. Finding the perfect racing line to speed to victory is the name of the game. Since MotoGP returned to Austria in 2016, only Ducati and KTM have managed to do this. Get your ticket now and be there in person as KTM try to take their third home win after 2021 (Brad Binder) and 2020 (Miguel Oliveira).
It all comes thick and fast for the fans over the weekend of the CryptoDATA Motorrad Grand Prix von Österreich 2022. From Friday to Sunday, there will be a fight for victories and points in three categories. In addition to the smaller, but no less exciting classes of Moto2 and Moto3, the spectators will also be treated to the Red Bull Rookies Cup. Since 2007, the series for juniors has been the ideal route into the motorcycle world championship. This year, 26 riders from 18 nations are to compete, including Austria’s Jakob Rosenthaler.
You can see the best riders in the world go about their work at the Red Bull Ring as they battle with their opponents and manoeuvre their bodies in remarkable ways to tame the brute force of their bikes. In 2021, Jorge Martin (Ducati) set a new lap record with a time of 1:22.643 minutes and an average speed of 187.300 km/h in the qualifying session at Spielberg. The Red Bull Ring therefore replaced Philip Island (Australia) as the fastest GP track in the world. Fans are sure to be intrigued to see to what extent the new Münzer chicane affects lap times this year.
4. Get close to the stars
During the CryptoDATA Motorrad Grand Prix von Österreich 2022, fans of racing on two wheels can see their idols up close. On Thursday, the Pit Lane Walk will provide the first opportunity to see Brad Binder, Johann Zarco & Co live. The Pit Lane Walk is open to anyone who has a valid weekend ticket. There will also be additional items on the schedule featuring the stars of MotoGP.
5. Festival atmosphere
The atmosphere at the Red Bull Ring is unique, as spectators can switch between enjoying the racing action and entertainment within a matter of minutes. In the MotoGP Bike City, directly behind the Styrian Grandstand, the fans can look forward to an exciting programme with live acts, motorcycle stunt shows and fan activities. On top of that, the Flying Bulls are to perform breathtaking air displays high above the race track.
