New Track – Red Bull Ring
Total Length: 4,831m. Elevation Change: 65.45m. Number of corners: 10. Longest Straight: 939m
This picturesque circuit is located Northwest of Graz, Austria. Based on the Österreichring first constructed in 1969, the Red Bull Ring was also called the A1 Ring from 1997 to 2010. It’s a high-speed circuit combining tight corners and long, fast straights, and while the course layout appears simple, it has a number of elevation changes that make it quite tricky. Surrounded by hills, the Red Bull Ring demands skill and caution, whether you’re taking on the full track or simply whipping around the short version.
