The team with Mario Klammer, Peter Eibisberger and Christian Ferstl has been preparing for the legendary Rechberg race for some time now.
True to the motto “Never change a running system, just make it better“, a few adjustments are being made to offer fans and active players a wonderful platform.

It’s like a racing car. You have to develop it further in order to remain effective. It is often only the little things that lead to success.”, says Peter Eibisberger. And Mario Klammer adds: “Looking back, we can certainly consider our premiere last year a success, and now the 50th anniversary of the Rechberg race is just around the corner. Our entire team is working hard to give this anniversary a worthy setting!“. Christian Ferstl says: “We set ourselves a very high bar last year, but we will still do everything we can to put our experience into practice and make a few changes here and there.”

Fans will now be able to experience this classic mountain race on the weekend of April 26 to 28, 2024 – the FIA has already confirmed the date. And it will be the 50th race on the Rechberg – no other mountain event in Austria can look back on such a history.

This year, the ultimate hillclimb race on the Rechberg will even be the first round of the FIA European Hillclimb Championship (modern & historic). As a result, we can expect an even higher-caliber field of participants than last year. The Austrian Mountain Championship will also be held.

“The Rechberg race is one of the biggest motorsport events in Austria and is also steeped in history and long-established. This is precisely why there will be some innovations again from 2024, after all we are celebrating the 50th race in beautiful Eastern Styria,” say the shareholders in unison, adding “Both participants and fans can once again look forward to something big… Tradition combined with modern times – that is our declared aim.”

The company is also very proud of the cooperation with the local motorsport clubs and associations, as well as the broad acceptance among the population. “We still have a lot to do, but we are highly motivated and confident that the Rechberg Race 2024 will be a complete success!” says the dynamic trio of managing partners Klammer, Eibisberger and Ferstl.
