Josefimarkt opens 2023 season at the Red Bull Ring

Make a note of the date: 25th/26th March 2023, Josefimarkt, the traditional season opener at Spielberg.

After a three-year break, the popular Josefimarkt will make its comeback on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th March 2023. It also signals the start of a new motorsport season at the Red Bull Ring. In addition to fast-paced driving experiences, we have put together a varied and entertaining programme of activities, including the largest car show in the Murtal, with exhibitors from the automotive, home improvement and lifestyle sectors.

No Limits – Lap the Red Bull Ring in your own vehicle

Enjoy driving without speed limits: the Josefimarkt weekend offers you the unique opportunity to speed around the 4.3km race track in your own car or on your own motorbike and imagine you’re the next Max Verstappen or Brad Binder. You’ll be able to push yourself to the limits in a safe environment and find out just how much power you and your car or bike really have.

If you’re so inclined, you can also zoom around in one of our four-stroke karts. All you have to do is call in at the Kart Track and book a slot. Off-road enthusiasts can take on the ultimate challenge of an off-road training in a Mitsubishi L200. The 4WD Test Track and the Off-road Car Track takes you out into the ‘great outdoors’ with rutted tracks, semi-impassable forest trails, water holes and plenty of steep ascents and descents.

For the two-wheeler community, the Ohvale MiniGP Experience is a great opportunity to get up to speed on our minibikes. The power may be lower compared to the big race machines, but at the same time you are heavier in relation to the bike. This means that you have more control and can safely achieve lean angles that would be much more difficult on your own bike.

Kids Action

We also make sure that youngsters get to share in the fun of the Josefimarkt weekend. The children’s programme in the North Paddock will feature a bouncy castle and age-appropriate driving experiences (Kids Racer), so that even the youngest can enjoy two days full of action, excitement and games. On top of that, our vehicle exhibition with our new two-wheel off-road fleet is sure to captivate young and old alike.

Opening hours Josefimarkt:

Saturday 25th March 2023: from 10:00 am to 06:00 pm

Sunday 26th March 2023: from 10:00 am to 05:00 pm

The Steiermark Grandstand will be open during the weekend and accessible to all. No catering will be provided at the Grandstand.
