“The hills are alive, with the sound of… engines.”
From the Osterreichring.
To illustrate what a great track we’ve lost, here’s the current version, for a comparison.
I respect the drivers back in the 80s steering these 1000hp+ machines around tracks like these. They could have done a better job with the layout. Wish they could have kept “old” hockenheim. Now they have a calendar with a shrunken “europe season”. Loved those fat tyres too.
Thank you for sharing all of theses videos
I can’t think of a better track for the turbo cars back then. It is a shame its been hacked down to its current config, just like Hockenheim. Too bad the Lotus had a miss and too bad for Berger at his home GP.
That’s one big-ass trophy. Poor Prost, it almost ate him!
yet, another amazing track that has been ruined by Hermann Tilke..
