The Red Bull Ring is located in the town of Spielberg in Styria, Austria. The circuit was originally built in 1969 and was known as the Österreichring. In 1996 it was completely rebuilt with a 4.3km layout and renamed the A1 ring. The track was closed after the 2004 season as it was in need of refurbishment. After three years of inaction, Red Bull began a $70 million reconstruction of the circuit in 2008 and it was finally inaugurated as the Red Bull Ring and re-opened in 2011. The 2016 season saw the Red Bull Ring host its first MotoGP™ race as the World Championship returned to Austria for the first time since 1997.
