For about 40 years Styria has been staging motor-sport events. Back in 1969, the circuit was opened under the name ‘Österreichring’. A project that experienced my ups and downs, in the past decades, thus reflecting the track layout. Nowhere else, the DTM drivers have to cope with similarly steep uphill sections like at the circuit in Austria’s ‘Murtal’ (Mur Valley). Since 2011 the series has been a regular guest at the Red Bull Ring – the official name since the circuit was reopened in 2010 – in every year. Spielberg’s picturesque Alps panorama make for a special atmosphere and the track layout for thrilling races. The past season didn’t represent an exception: the weekend at Spielberg once again provided spectacular and electrifying motor racing.
