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 many 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 guest at the Red Bull Ring - the official name since the circuit was reopened in 2010 - in every year. Spielberg's picturesque Alps panorama makes 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.
The DTM carries out two races on all race weekends. The distance is always 55 minutes plus one lap.
The FIA Formula 3 European Championship is the leading junior series in Europe. Anyone who shines here has good prospects for a cockpit in the DTM or Formula 1.
The acronym stands for ‘Big Open Single-Seater’ and comprises single-seaters of numerous race series.

On the city: Spielberg is located in the heart of the 'Murtal' (Mur Valley) in Upper Styria, some 50 kilometres away from Graz. The town has got about 5,200 citizens.
Grandstand lead: 'Westtribüne': perfect view of the first, tight corner and the battles for position that can be witnessed there.
Styria - Austria's green heart: There are quite a number of possibilities for discovering Styria. By mountain hikes or on fixed rope routes around Dachstein and Hochschwab in the north or on the hiking trails around apple, vine and pumpkin in the south. www.steiermark.com, www.steiermark-touristik.com
The must-have souvenir & to be tried at all costs Typical for the 'Murtal' arguably is the 'Murtaler Steirerkäs' (Special cheese from Styria's Murtal). It is a firm cooking cheese that enchants every palate, with its hearty-spicy taste.
Culture lead What is a 'Massenkuchenpresse' and how does a 'Verschneidebock' look like? These questions are answered in the 'Murauer Brauereimuseum' (Murau Brewing Museum'.

For party goers: Not the partying capital par excellence but it has got what it takes to always make for high spirits.
