Season starts in early May in Monza (ITA)

Drexler Automotive Formula Cup

The Drexler Formula Cup has once again rearranged its calendar for this year. The opening event in Mugello (ITA) planned for March 28th has been cancelled. The currently tightened regulations and travel restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic prevent the start of the season in Italy. As in previous years, the Drexler Formula Cup has seven race events in its sights. At this point, there seems to be no doubt that the Covid-19 pandemic will remain the determining factor in season planning and its execution for 2021. "At this stage, we have six events underpinned and are still in discussions with race tracks and promoters. Never before has a season been as difficult to plan as this year," says coordinator Franz Wöss. This one could be similarly difficult, but at least with some hurdles like last year.

Race calendar for 2021 picks up speed

Drexler Automotive Formula Cup

As in previous years, the Drexler Formula Cup has its sights set on seven race events. There is no doubt that the Corona pandemic will continue to be the determining factor in the planning for 2021. "At the present time, we have confirmed five events and are in talks with other race tracks," says coordinator Franz Wöss. The season could be as difficult as last year. In 2020, the Drexler Formula Cup staged six race weekends with the support of the organizers as well as the participants and sponsors. Recall that there were some racing series in Europe that were much harder hit by Corona. The season opener this year is scheduled for the last weekend of March in Mugello (ITA). After that, it's off to Monza (ITA) in early May. The Red Bull Ring (AUT) will be a guest at the end of May. The Salzburgring (AUT) will follow in mid-June. In keeping with tradition, the team plans to race at Brno (CZE) on the first weekend in September. "We are still in close contact with the Hungaroring, Spa, Hockenheim, Lausitzring and Most in order to be able to fix two more race weekends," says Franz Wöss. The already fixed race tracks impress with their attractiveness. With Mugello, Monza and the Red Bull Ring alone, three Formula 1 circuits are included. Conceptually, the Drexler Formula Cup will continue to cooperate with the F2000 Italian Formula Trophy and the FIA CEZ.

28.03.2021 Mugello / ITA
02.05.2021 Monza / ITA

Facts and figures in the Corona Year

Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup

When the Corona Pandemic at the end of March of this year also found its way into Europe, motor sports was affected in addition to normal public life in the countries. Numerous cancellations and postponements of events were the result. Nobody knew in the spring like it continues to go. All hoped for improvement or even all-clear. But the pandemic should accompany us until today. The original schedule of seven events in the Drexler Formula Cup was reduced to six weekends due to the cancellation of the Circuit Trophy at the Red Bull Ring. After the end of the season, it can be said that the Drexler Formula Cup has driven quite well through the motorsport year 2020. The hygiene and infection regulations in the individual countries were a great challenge for motorsport as a whole. The number of participants in the series partly decreased, also the economic situation of many medium-sized companies forced them to make savings. Sponsorship money was cut or even suspended. "After the final in Monza, we can say that it was a difficult year looking back on the season. Our thanks go to the teams and pilots, as well as to the sponsors, who enabled us to carry out this difficult season. The same goes for the organizers, who, with the help of the local authorities, tried to get the best out of it for the realization of motor sport events, even if it sometimes seemed as if we had some chaotic days ahead of us", says coordinator Franz Wöss. A total of 27 pilots from 10 nations competed in the five special stages. This underlines the importance of the Drexler Formula Cup.
