No LEEB circuit trophy at the Red Bull Ring

Drexler -Automotive Formula Cup

Like in 2020 there will be no LEEB Rundstreckentrophy at the Red Bull Ring this year. On Friday race director Gerhard Leeb pulled the ripcord. The preparations for the traditional event, which takes place annually in mid-May in the run-up to the Formula 1 Grand Prix and the Moto GP, had been underway for a long time. This means that the Drexler Formula Cup will no longer be held in its 2nd round. The currently new and again intensified developments in the Covid-19 pandemic left the LEEB Group no other choice in its decision. This is because almost 90 percent of the participants come from neighboring countries such as the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Poland, Italy, Switzerland and Germany. The development and enforcement of entry and exit regulations are no longer predictable at all. "I think Gerhard Leeb did not make his decision easy. Unfortunately, the infection figures in the countries in the middle of Europe have gone really high, even if we all had more hope on this subject in the spring of this year," says Franz Wöss of the Drexler Formula Cup. He is now trying to find an alternative date together with other racing series, but this is proving enormously difficult when it comes to planning racing events in 2021. "We have to try everything now and will get together. I have already made many telephone calls in the short time available," says Franz Wöss.
