Congratulations to Bilster Berg Drive Resort!

November 21, 2013

Congratulations Bilster Berg Drive Resort for winning the PMW Expo 2013 Award for Motorsport Facility of the Year. Well done! The award was presented to this circuit during the Professional Motorsport World Expo in Cologne (GER) on the 12th of November.

As the Awards judge Jonas Näfver of Öhlins put it: “Bilster Berg is not built for motorsport events and this makes it perfect for motorsport testing. Here it is possible to isolate separate sections to form very short circuits. This effectively shortens the testing time and mileage as well as increasing the number of alterations it’s possible to cover during a test day. Furthermore, it helps the driver to isolate the behavior without diluting it with the demands of the rest of the track.”

The reaction of Bilster Berg’s CEO, Marcus Count Oeynhausen-Sierstorpff, on receiving the award: “This award is the icing on the cake after an incredibly successful first year. It underlines that we reached our aim in creating a brand-new and modern venue in the tradition of legendary tracks like Spa Francorchamps or the Nordschleife.”
