Austria back on the schedule for 2014!

  1. Great news!

    The only problem i see here is that with the easing on testing next year and this being Red Bull´s own official test track i can imagine Ferrari might voice some concerns.
    It would be like hosting a GP in Fiorano.

  2. Wouldn't think it being RBR testing ground gives them so much edge. The circuit is conventional in design compared to Fiorano it's been resurfaced AFAIK so there might lie few secrets that gives them one day advantage.

    But i'm glad that A1 finally makes its return, i love the circuit. Unlike Hocke, A1 didn't suffer so much when it was redesigned, actually it got a lot better.
  3. Good news this. Been driving rbr last couple of days, great track.

    This Red Bull Ring (formerly the Osterreichring and A1-Ring) is my favourite track. :)

    Ah, great news!
    Finally a really cool, old-school track back in the calendar.
    Can't see this floating, wide Tilke stuff anymore :)
  6. Watched FR3.5 race in RB Ring recently. Good news, this track is awesome!
  7. Oh yes! One of my favorites :D

    Watched DTM there two years ago, Euro Trucks last month and I will most probably visit Spielberg again in August for ADAC GT Masters ... and next year comes F1. Good, I will be there :)!

  9. Mine too!

    Can't beat the A1 Ring.

    Fantastic news. Expecting a first turn chaos made by crazy rookies :D
  11. Most times non-rookies cause the carnage :D

    Is this in any sims? Seems popular but never driven it myself :D

  13. Grand Prix 4 had by far the best version I've driven, especially with the game's original cars.

  14. There is a newly modded version in rFactor but that's it.
  15. I will believe it when I see the official schedule for next year.
  16. A1(Telecommunication) has long gone as sponsor of the track:p

    But the same goes for the Loews Hairpin at Monaco, but I refuse to call it *Grand Hotel Hairpin" or whatever it is called. Why?

    Because it sounds dumb.

  17. Partly the reason I call it the A1 Ring is because I'm not a Red Bull fan.

  18. Why not call it Österreichring then? Same place, but without any sponsorship trademarks, just plain national proudness:D

    (Which can't be said for Switzerland)
