The 1963 Austrian Grand Prix was a non-championship race, held at the Zeltweg Airport on September 1. This was the 'dry run' for a potential championship event in 1964. Attrition caused by an extremely bumpy surface led to a five-lap victory by Jack Brabham, who became the first person to win a Formula One event in a car manufactured by himself. Second place was Tony Settember in a Scirocco, ahead of Carel Godin de Beaufort in a Porsche.
