Travelling by car
On the 2018 Formula 1 weekend, the approach roads to the Red Bull Ring along with most of the main transport routes in Austria are fully open. Due to the expected heavy traffic and with some road works, Projekt Spielberg recommends the following routes, depending on your departure point:
Vienna / East Austria: S6 –St. Michael junction – S36
Graz / South Styria: A9 – Gleinalmtunnel – St. Michael junction – S36
Salzburg: A10 – B96 – St. Michael im Lungau – Tamsweg – Murau – Judenburg
Upper Austria: A9 – St. Michael junction – S36
Carinthia: B317 – Neumarkter Sattel – Judenburg – S36 or B78 – Weißkirchen in der Steiermark (then follow local signs)
Schladming / Selzthal region: B320 – Liezen – B113 – Trieben (not the A9) – B114 – Triebener Tauern – Pöls – via Fohnsdorf to the Red Bull Ring (follow local signs)
Use the S36 Murtal Schnellstraße motorway and take either exit Knittelfeld West, Zeltweg Ost or Zeltweg West to get to the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg. Please follow the local traffic control system on the S36 and along the country roads. Should the traffic conditions make it impossible for you to take the above mentioned exits, please follow the instructions given to you by the executive forces. Depending on your ticket colour, you will be directed to the nearest parking area. Please memorise the number of your parking area indicated at the entrance to the respective area.
The early bird catches the worm: Please note that you should expect extensive traffic volumes at the time of your arrival. We therefore recommend trying to arrive before 07:30.
The more the merrier! Whereas Daniel Ricciardo & Co. are always alone in their cockpits when they blast around the Red Bull Ring, we recommend filling every seat in your car. this will reduce traffic congestion and allow everybody to get to the event faster.
