Long before the stars of the DTM compete at the Red Bull Ring in September, the Spielberg date for 2024 has already been fixed. Next year, the flashy GT3 cars with their throaty roar will be thrilling Austrian fans on the weekend of 27th – 29th September 2024.
At the moment, however, all eyes are on the current season and a tense battle at the top. The chances are good that Thomas Preining will be crowned the first Austrian champion in DTM history. It would be the biggest milestone to date in his already glittering DTM career: in 2022, he became only the third driver from the country after Lucas Auer and Philipp Eng to win a DTM race. He was also the first Austrian to make a podium appearance at his home race.
This year, too, you can look forward to a patriotic occasion at Spielberg. Lining up on the grid alongside Thomas Preining will be Lucas Auer and Clemens Schmid. The latter drives for the GT Grasser Racing Team, which is based just a stone’s throw from the Red Bull Ring. Accordingly, Austrian fans are urged to get out the red-white-red flags and keep their fingers crossed for the penultimate race of the season.
The DTM is to be contested at the Red Bull Ring on the weekend of 22nd ‑ 24th September 2023 under the aegis of the ADAC for the first time. The organisational change ensures a packed motorsport programme that fans can enjoy for as little as €39.00, including access to the paddock. Children and youngsters under the age of 16 are admitted free of charge when accompanied by an adult (ticket category 3).
And that’s not all. In addition to spectacular wheel-to-wheel action in the DTM, you will also be treated to two races of the 2023 ADAC GT Masters. Also sharing the billing will be the partner series BMW M2 Cup, Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland and Porsche Carrera Cup Benelux.
