The Red Bull Ring, formerly known as the Österreichring or the A-1 Ring, is a racetrack in Spielberg, Styria, Austria. Home of the Austrian Grand Prix from 1970 through 1987 and again from 1997 through 2003, the track was shuttered and the track structures demolished in 2004. It looked like the end of the storied race circuit, once among the most feared on the Grand Prix calendar (and, tragically, where Mark Donahue was killed in a 1975 crash), until it was purchased by Red Bull founder Dietrich Mateschitz. Even then, political battles over the future of the track went on for years, until Red Bull announced a reconstruction of the entire facility in 2008. Built specifically to host DTM (German Touring Car) racing, the track’s grand re-opening was held last weekend, with a mega-party hosted by Red Bull. Watch the festivities, in glorious tilt-shift action, in the video below.
