Grand Mountain Prize of Austria – rechberg race

The rechberg race, which has been held on the Rechberg in the Almenland region since 1972 and is one of the most important motorsport events in Austria, will be breaking new ground from 2023:

A newly founded organizing committee around the three shareholders, Peter Eibisberger, Christian Ferstl and Mario Klammer has taken over the responsibility and has set itself a remarkable goal in addition to an extensive professionalization of the event itself:

Together with the AMF (Austrian Motorsport Federation – the national representative organization of the world sports federation FIA), the Austrian Mountain Grand Prix is run as a pilot project on the subject of “sustainability in grassroots motorsport”:

We want and have to evaluate the event in terms of climate protection, develop and implement possibilities for CO22 – reduction – so that we can continue to pursue our passion, mountain racing, in 10 years and beyond with a clear conscience,” say Werner Faustmann and Ewald-Marco Münzer, who are part of the organizing committee as sustainability officers.

In line with this objective, a master plan is being developed with the goal of “net zero 2025”, with the focus on the following areas in the 2024 host year:

The Grand Hill Climb of Austria thus takes a leading role in Europe in the segment of mass motor sports, the knowledge gained, evaluations and successes are transferred on the part of the AMF into an event guide. This guide, in turn, is intended to help organizers of similar, national events to force a multiplication of the individual building blocks.

Rethinking motorsport – the rechberg race, from the year 2023 not only, but especially in terms of sustainability.

Let’s go for it.
