SALZBURGRING.

Salzburgring

SALZBURGRING.

The Salzburgring is an ideal testing and training ground which was opened in 1969, set in an idyllic location amid the green hills and lakes of the Salzkammergut in Austria. Two long straights, with the finishing straight rising slightly towards the start and finish, and the adjoining wide bend above the paddock make the Salzburgring a very fast race track. The large elevation gain and taxing bends make it a highly varied circuit. On the BMW Basic and Intensive Training courses the Salzburgring provides just the right challenges for all skill levels.
