Returning Red Bull Ring event takes top honours this season

The 2016 Austrian GP has been named the best of the season by the Grand Prix Commission, comprised of members representing the FIM, IRTA and Dorna, after MotoGP™ returned to Austria for the first time in 19 years at the Red Bull Ring near Spielberg for the NeroGiardini Motorrad Grand Prix von Österreich that took place in mid-August.

Italian rider Andrea Iannone took the Ducati Team’s first win since 2010 in front of the incredible sold-out crowd on race day, with the spectacular Alpine venue proving the perfect backdrop to another sensational chapter in MotoGP™ history as the Red Bull Ring came back onto the calendar with an inimitable bang. Rewarded for the incredible organisation, facilities and atmosphere at the event, the Austrian GP will now look ahead to 2017 in a bid to retain the prestigious prize.
