The A-1 Ring is an updated and re-designed version of the famous Österreichring. Located in the green uplands of the province of Styria, a triangular area of Austria, bounded by the cities of Vienna, Salzburg and Graz. Since the Österreichring closed in 1987 some £17 million has been spent on the track to make it one of the most modern circuits in the world, equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. The circuit is basically three long straights with a twisting infield section which means team must compromise on car set-up.
