Austrian Grand Prix


In the 1950`s enthusiasts created a track at Zeltweg airport in Spielberg. The track had bumpy runways marked out by straw bales and cones, typical of many tracks in Europe at that time. By the late fifties the track attracted races for international sports cars and a couple of Formula Two Champions rounds. However Formula one was the goal and they organized a non championship F1 race in the early nineteen sixties, with the inaugural Austrian Grand Prix taking place one year later. Although the race was a success the track was declared too bumpy and dangerous.

Austrian driver Jochen Rindt was making his way through the Formula One ranks and by the late sixties had gained super star status as the number one driver for Colin Chapman`s Team Lotus. Formula One and Jochen Rindt had become increasingly popular in Austria and a new track was built in a natural basin within the scenic Styria Mountains near Zeltweg, named the Osterreichring. The second Austrian Grand Prix for Formula One Championship took place at the super-fast circuit in 1970 and continued until 1987 when the turbo-powered cars produced 1,100 bhp and lapped at 159 mph in qualifying. The FIA declared it as too fast so the circuit was deemed out of date for the turbo era

By 1997 the track was re-built by Herman Tilke to more modern standards and renamed the A1-Ring. It lasted six years, but after receiving negative publicity in the 2002 race when Rubens Barrichello ceded the race to Michael Schumacher on team orders. For 2003 the crowds dropped dramatically and the 2004 race was cancelled. Red Bull bought the track and redesigned it as the Red Bull Ring bringing the race back in 2014.

Hotel Zum Dom Graz

Small, stylish, and anything but conventional: at Graz`s Dom Hotel each guest resides in the colorful, artistic ambience of a time-honored city palace. The Hotel Zum Dom is situated in the heart of the Old Town of Graz, a stone`s throw from the pedestrian zone and within walking distance of all major sights.

All guest room at this 4 star Boutique Hotel are furnished in their own distinctive style and offer mini bar, hair dryer, in-room safe, free Wi-Fi and windows that open!

Graz


Graz is the second largest city in Austria and closest city of any size to the Red Bull Ring. At the heart of Graz is Hauptplatz, the medieval old town that is so spectacular that UNESCO declared the old town as a World Cultural Heritage site. Your hotel started as an 11th Century Palace which became a boutique hotel in 1997. The city`s best restaurants and historic treasures are truly stunning and are on the Hotel Zum Dom door step.

Within the Old Town are fortifications at Schlossberg Castle where the Austrian line of the Habsburgs Monarchy lived. The Habsburgs ruled Styria, Carinthia, Slovenia, and parts of Italy, from Graz. Their dynasty ruled Austria for 600 hundred years, and ended in 1918 when the Austro-Hungarian Empire was disbanded at the end of WWI. The Habsburgs had built their empire by marrying the heiresses of other territories, most famously of Spain and the Netherlands. Successful in Love but not war!

From the earliest days of the city, Graz was a place of learning with its first University built in 1585. There now four universities and the students enjoy the narrow streets and many cafes ensuring that the city stays young at heart. There are art galleries, great shopping, as well as excellent restaurants, and everywhere you look there are centuries of history around you.

Welcome Dinner

Enjoy a typical "Austrian" dinner while getting to know your fellow race enthusiasts!

Your dinner will be Austrian cuisine which is composed of influences from throughout the former Austro-Hungarian Empire, making for significant regional variations from Hungary, Germany, Bohemia, Italy, and the Balkans, and in turn this fusion of styles was influential throughout the old Empire.

The most popular meats in Austria are beef, pork, chicken, turkey and goose. The prominent Wiener schnitzel is traditionally made of veal. Pork in particular is used extensively.

Austria has an old hunting tradition since there are many woods across the country. In the autumn season many restaurants in Austria traditionally offer game on their menu along with seasonal vegetables and fruits like pumpkins from Styria.

Relax with aperitifs, enjoy a great Austrian meal, drink local wines, and finish with a wonderful after dinner drink.

The above events are included in tour price.
