The Autospeedway classes Stockcar F1, Stockcar F2, F2-Juniors and National Hotrods as well as the V8 Oval Series will be part of the event.

Since the number of visitor tickets is limited, tickets must be ordered in advance. Racing fans can reserve tickets in advance by writing an e-mail to When ordering, it must be specified how many people would like to attend the event, as well as whether the group belongs to one family and can therefore sit next to each other in the grandstand, so that contact restrictions can be observed.
