Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup - Imola (ITA)

After the end of the summer break, the Drexler Formula Cup comes to its third round in Imola (August 28-30). Imola heralds the second English week. Only one week after the guest appearance in the Autodromo "Enzo e Dino Ferrari" the Drexler Formula Cup comes to Brno. At the ACI Racing Weekend, the Drexler Formula Cup will once again compete with the Italian TOPJET F.2000 Italy Trophy. For the Italian circuit series, the weekend in Imola counts as one of the season highlights in the Corona year. The interest of the teams is just as great as in Mugello in mid-July. "Once again we have a very large field of participants together and expect 38 cars", says coordinator Franz Wöss. The racing program is peppered with top-class Italian circuit series. With the Italian F4 Championship, the Porsche Carrera Cup Italia, the Mini Challenge, the C.I.Gran Turismo Endurance and the TCR Italy Touring Car Championship, the organizer has a great program to offer. A total of 13 decisions are up for grabs on the 4.933-kilometer circuit, which will host Formula 1 at the end of October 2020 after 14 years of abstinence. Among the drivers in the Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup, Imola is considered one of the fastest race tracks on this year's calendar.

Sandro Zeller wins double

Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup - Mugello

At the ACI Racing Weekend in Mugello Sandro Zeller (Jo Zeller Racing) convinced in both races and repeated his double victory from last year. The 2nd round of the Drexler Formula Cup was characterised by exciting fights for positions on the 5.245 kilometre long track. After the Corona-conditioned lockdown in Italy, the pilots of the TOPJET F.2000 Italy Trophy were particularly aggressive. Although Sandro Zeller already underlined his position as favourite with the fastest time (1:43.712 min) in free practice and also in qualifying, the Swiss did not get off the ground as usual when starting the first race from pole position. Surprisingly, Bernardo Pellegrini (HAT Power) passed by and took the lead. This duel really picked up speed during the 16-lap chase and at the finish Pellegrini could be happy about the day's victory, while Zeller won the Drexler Formula Cup classification. Especially the overtaking manoeuvres while laping the slower cars were worth seeing.
