Welcome to the Salzburgring
The Salzburgring lies to the east of the Festival City of Salzburg, directly in the lakeland of the Salzkammergut resort area – embedded between the villages of Koppl, Plainfeld and Hof.
In the middle of a thickly forested area, the Salzburgring is surrounded by hills, which serve as a superb natural grandstand for events providing visitors with an outstanding view of the race track.
The Salzburgring was built in 1968 on a 42-hectar site. After a one-year construction period, it was opened in September 1969 with a combined car and motorbike race. In 1970, the first “Austrian Grand Prix” for motorcycles took place here, and a year later the first FIM Motorbike World Championship race.
In addition to international and national motorbike and car races, the annual Salzburgring program also includes driver-safety courses, club meetings, concerts, company presentations as well as other events.
Its idyllic setting, the geographically favourable traffic connection and the outstanding infrastructure in the vicinity of the race track, also make the Salzburgring a popular venue for guests both from home and abroad.
