If I’m not mistaken this is the old Osterreichring, or A1 Ring, correct? If so, it used to be beautiful. I hope they haven’t screwed it up too much.
Thanks. That reminds me of the original Sebring layout.
Sebastian Vettel: Red Bull’s world champion told to raise his game
Sebastian Vettel was told to “raise his game” by his Red Bull team after a troubled start to the season.
Helmut Marko, Red Bull’s motorsport adviser, told the four-time champion after April’s Chinese Grand Prix to adapt his driving and stop complaining about the car and new rules.

Vettel explains ‘tough luck’ response to team orders in China
“I told him: ‘There are 50 engineers working on this engine and they can’t sort it out,’ said Marko.
“’You’re a top driver, it’s up to you. You have to do it.’”
The 71-year-old Austrian, a former racing driver, added: “If he can’t sort out the car, the easiest thing is the driver. He has to raise his game.”
In a wide-ranging interview before the return of the Austrian Grand Prix next weekend on Red Bull’s own circuit, Marko also revealed that Red Bull had considered signing Lewis Hamilton for the 2013 season.
They decided against it because they felt the 2008 champion would clash with Vettel because they both have big egos.
“We were considering it, but we thought it wouldn’t work,” said Marko. “To be successful, you need a certain amount of harmony.”
They speak Osterreichian there according to Obama.
Short track, two DRS zones. Looks good to me! Miss the A1 Ring!
Previous Austrian GP circuits had lots of elevation changes as I recall. I hope this one does too.
If you do a search, the original layout went straight at what is now turn one, went through some sweepers and worked it’s way back to what is now turn 2. It was a lot more fast and flowing. It was changed in the early 90’s. I’m stuck racing at Snetterton this weekend, we do go to Spa in 3 weeks, however, so I’ve got that going for me. :)
Are you involved in historic racing? We’ve been to Revival seven times since 2002, but will have to miss this year. We’re hoping there will be a Members Meeting in 2015 and if so we’ll be there.
Woo, gravel traps!

I was using my “dumb look is just cover” plan...
LOL! Hook, line, sinker;) a tad more detail than needed. Was reading it out loud and Molly perked up at “Hamburger 12”
Good Lord how much did it cost? Was the whole plan for a Tax write off?
I guess a better question would have been -How nose heavy is it?
Sorry, didn’t mean to get Ya in a frenzy. (and make Myself look stupid)
and cost??? the true cost is uncalculable, first block was a 472 and started with dual 4's in a 70 1/2 Z/28, then NOZ then no NOZ then NOZ, then a bottom end, and then there was the fire... then the Z turned into the Opel with the 507 and blower, tranny twice or is it three times now, i forget, and no and on and on etc etc etc like the never ending story 8^)
and as far as nose heavy goes, it's nose heavier that the whole friggin goathumping ISIS army put together... but nothing a little application of HP can't lighten up so you can turn it almost with one finger, the wheelie bar is NOT for show, nor the chutepack 8^)
WHOA! Somebody gonna wish the Stazi was after them before this is over.
EB Thanks for the info.
