This race track haed been opened in 1968. Lyin in a narrow, alpine valley, it haes a rather simple layoot, wi twa lang straights plus the sweepin an fast "Fahrerlagerkurve" ("paddock turn") at the bottom, an the narrow "Nockstein-Kehre" on the top. In spite o its simple layoot, it garnered a fearsome reputation for the hicht speeds reached on the straights an the "Fahrerlagerkurve".
It hosts mainly touring caur races like the German ADAC Procar Series, DPM, DTC, STW, but several Grand Prix motorcycle racin (frae 1971 tae 1994 except for 1980 an 1992), Superside an the Austrian motorcycle Grand Prix events wur held there also. An there haed been Oldtimer Grand Prix as well as during the last years a "Rupert Hollaus Memorial" organized bi Ex-GP motorcycle an sidecaur rider Wolfgang Stropek.
