Red Bull Ring Classics comes up trumps with 500 Owners Association

Red Bull Ring Classics comes up trumps with 500 Owners Association

Alain Prost, Michael Schumacher, Sebastian Vettel, Max Verstappen are just four of the many motor racing legends who at one stage in their respective careers competed in Formula 3. The racing series is well known as a stepping stone to the highest echelon of the sport. Less well known is the fact that F3 has its origins in the so-called ‘500 movement’.

Nowadays, it is hard to imagine that the likes of Sir Stirling Moss, Jack Brabham, Bernie Ecclestone, Graham Hill and Ken Tyrell raced in such basic models, which are somewhat reminiscent of soapboxes. Safety belt? Roll bars? Not considered necessary at the time. The 50-horsepower packet is produced by a 500cc motorbike engine in a compartment situated directly behind the driver.

Then as now, the monoposto racing cars made heavy demands on t heir drivers. See for yourself when the 500 Owners Association makes its appearance as one of seven legendary racing series staged in the framework of the Red Bull Ring Classics later this year. Learn more about the glorious racing series.
