Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup - Automotodrom Brno (CZE)

At the fifth race weekend of the Drexler Formula Cup, Vladimir Netusil (Effektive Racing) and Benjamin Berta (Team Hoffmann Racing) were two surprise winners against the competition. In the first race, pole-setter Benjamin Berta was unable to turn his best qualifying time into a victory and had to give way to local hero Vladimir Netusil during the 13-lap chase at the Masaryk Racing Days. The Czech from the Drexler sub-series of the Formula 3 Open won by 3.113 seconds ahead of Berta, who in turn was able to relegate Sandro Zeller (Jo Zeller Racing), as well as Kurt Böhlen (Jo Zeller Racing) and Nikolas Szabo (Ideal Line&Performance) to the other places. Stefan Fürtbauer (Franz Wöss Racing) initially remained within striking distance. In the course of the race, he was unable to keep up the pace and was recorded in sixth place.

Due to this decision, the Drexler Formula Cup will now go into the summer break before it continues with the 5th round of the formula series in Brno from 03-05.09.21.
