EuroSpeedway Lausitz is a popular racetrack in east Germany, which is known for
playing host to the German Touring Car Championship (DTM) and Superbike World
Championship every year. On Saturday 3rd September, doors will open at
around 10:00, with the free practices and qualifying classes running throughout
the day. If you’re keen to see all of the action, doors are due to open at the
same time on Sunday 4th September, and you can enjoy the fantastic
pilot parade at 12:30, before the races begin. The racetrack seats 120,000
people, so it’s a really fantastic atmosphere.
will attempt to navigate through an exhilarating aerial racetrack, which is
laid out using inflatable pylons. They’ll need to get the fastest time
possible, with as few penalties as possible. Completing each Master Class race
earn pilots World Championship points, with the winner being announced after
the final race in Las Vegas, in October.
checking out the Germany race will also see the Challenger Cup, which involves
a younger collection of eight incredible pilots from across the globe. These
pilots are really lucky as they have the chance to experience the adrenaline
rush of the Red Bull Air Race, and I love watching on as a new generation hone
their skills, by racing in one of the world’s most exciting and thrilling
Where to stay
are several places to stay near to the racetrack, giving you the freedom to
experience the entire day’s events without worrying too much about travel. For
something special, check out the Wellnesshotel Seeschlösschen
resort, near to the scenic Lake Senftenberg. With a wellness spa, a pretty garden
and a number of restaurants offering rustic meals and more formal dining, you
can unwind with ease after an exciting day at the races.
too far away, the quaint hotel Pension
Mandy in Seftenberg is a great choice if you’re looking for a simple,
nicely-decorated hotel with a buffet breakfast. Rooms are spacious and the
staff are welcoming, and the hotel is just over a 10-minute drive from the EuroSpeedway
south of the racetrack you can find the incredible Lusatian Lakeland, a nature
reserve packed with things to see and do. Whether you’re renting a boat on Lake
Seftenberg, cycling through the nature reserve or trying your hand at the
sailing school, it’s a brilliant place for kids and adults, and during early
September the weather is still warm enough to go camping.
over an hour’s drive south of the racetrack is Dresden. One of Germany’s most
elegant and beautiful cities, its history is a tumultuous but interesting story
which can be explored through its many museums and regal architecture. One of
the most impressive buildings for me is the Dresden Zwinger,
which is one of Germany’s most famous baroque buildings, home to museums and
attend this year’s Red Bull Air Race World Championship in Germany?
