Slipstream duels in the Ardennes

Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup - Spa Francorchamps (BEL)

The Drexler Formula Cup comes to Spa Francorchamps for its 4th round next weekend (25-27.06.2021). 2017 was the last time the event was held in the Ardennes under the banner of the REMUS Formula Cup. "It's almost a good tradition that we race at the Spa Summer Classic. Of course, we are looking forward to top-class duels on the Ardennes rollercoaster," says coordinator Franz Wöss. The 7.004-kilometre Formula 1 circuit has always been considered a special attraction. More than 30 Formula cars are expected. Drivers from 10 nations will be there to provide excitement in both sprint races. How could it be otherwise, Formula 3 will be very strongly represented.

The weekend of the double winners

Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup - Salzburgring (AUT)

At the 3rd round of the Drexler Formula Cup on the ultra-fast Salzburgring, there was a double victory in each of the four categories. In both races, Vladimir Netusil (Effective Racing) beat the competition with the more powerful Dallara and celebrated a commanding success. As expected, the Czech had dominated the qualifying and set the fastest time with 1:18.964 minutes. Stefan Fürtbauer (Franz Wöss Racing) fought bravely and once again showed his talent in Formula 3. For a long time he stayed within striking distance of Netusil in both races, who, however, was able to make up metres in every lap on the long uphill passage. In Formula 3, Fürtbauer scored his first double win this year, which should give the young Austrian a further boost.

The Drexler Formula Cup comes to the Salzburgring for its third round. In addition, there will again be classification points for the Int. Austrian State Racing Car Championship. In Formula 3, Sandro Zeller (Jo Zeller Racing) has taken the lead after his double victory in Monza. Thomas Aregger (Franz Wöss Racing) is only two points behind his compatriot. Stefan Fürtbauer (Franz Wöss Racing) is hoping for a podium finish, as the Austrian has always improved in his first Formula 3 year. Vladimir Netusil (Effective Racing) has so far been able to convince with high-performance results in the somewhat more powerful Formula 3 - Open. He is in the lead ahead of Paolo Brajnik. In Formula 4, Patrick Schober (Procar Motorsport) wants to establish himself in the lead with a victory at the Salzburgring and reduce the gap to Benjamin Berta (Gender Racing). With the double victory at the Red Bull Ring, Jorden Dolischka (Top Speed) has convinced in Formula Renault. Now it's up to him to hold his own against Robert Siska (Franz Wöss Racing) and Alexander Geier (Geier Motorsport) at the Salzburgring.

Swiss day in Styria

Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup - Red Bull Ring (AUT)

At the 2nd round of the Drexler Formula Cup, the Swiss Formula 3 drivers made their mark on the Red Bull Ring. Although they were unable to stop the day's winner Paolo Brajnik (SRB) in the more powerful E2-2000 Dallara in both races, Sandro Zeller (Jo Zeller Racing), Thomas Aregger (Franz Wöss Racing) and F3 returnee Marcel Tobler (Jo Zeller Racing) determined the Formula -3 standings. Sandro Zeller had secured pole position in the rainy qualifying and was able to leave Brajnik behind. In the first race on Saturday afternoon in dry conditions Brajnik used his horsepower advantage on the long straights of the Formula 1 track. Sandro Zeller held his own in the beginning, but had to let Brajnik go. Thomas Aregger stayed within striking distance of Zeller for a long time and kept Marcel Tobler behind him, who was fighting with the E2-2000 drivers Vladimir Netusil (Effective Racing) and Janos Magyar (Magyar Racing (Team) for the connection to the top. Behind the Swiss trio, Stefan Fürtbauer (Franz Wöss Racing) crossed the finish line ahead of Danny Luderer (Vogtland Racing) and Luca Iannaccone (Facondi Racing) after the 18-lap chase in the Formula 3 classification.
