For Nico Gruber from Upper Austria, the Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup finale marked the end of a successful season. The driver from Team Hoffman Racing confidently won the Formula Renault classification after the seven races in 2019. The season plans at the beginning of the year were completely different for Nico Gruber. First he was active for the ADAC Berlin-Brandenburg e.V. in the team of Mücke Motorsport in the ADAC Formula 4. There he completed the first race weekend as a prelude in the Motorsport Arena Oschersleben. At the beginning of May he changed to Formula Renault to start a new chapter with Team Hoffmann Racing. At the 2nd race on the Red Bull Ring Gruber made a dream start to his Formula Renault debut with a double victory. Then Gruber felt very comfortable in Formula Renault and got to know the car better and better. In Imola he continued his winning streak. From the race in Most at mid-season three double victories were to follow. At the final on the Hungaroring he even managed a triple victory. Gruber not only dominated the competition in Formula Renault. One after another he managed to drive into the Formula 3 phalanx and to place in the secured midfield in the daily classification of the Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup races. "I'm just overjoyed," said Gruber after his fantastic finale in Hungary. Last season he was able to win the rookie title in the British Formula Ford. "My Team Hoffmann Racing has always provided me with a top car, many thanks also to my race engineer Christian Lipp, my father and my manager Harry Miltner from HM Sports," adds Nico Gruber. He is already working on his season plans for 2020. Initially, touring car tests are planned in Hockenheim.

Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup - Hungaroring (HUN)

With three races held for the first time, the Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup offered an exciting final weekend at the Hungaroring. At the races in Hungary, after the early decision in Brno, the focus was on the runner-up title in Formula 3. Sandro Zeller (Jo Zeller Racing) had secured the title in the Czech Republic and, as expected, Andrea Cola trumped on the 4,381 km long Hungaroring. His worst opponent was Tom Beckhäuser from the Czech Republic, who put the Italian under strong pressure. In the 1st qualifying Beckhäuser had convinced with the best time (1:38,234 min). Cola then fought back with the fastest lap (1:38.910 min) in 2nd qualifying.

Sub-classifications decided early - Sandro Zeller and Dr.Ralph Pütz are new Champions

Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup

In the Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup Sandro Zeller (Jo Zeller Racing) not only won the overall Formula 3 standings at the penultimate race in Brno. The Swiss also won the SWISS Formula 3 Cup, which will again be supported by HORAG in 2019. Zeller repeated his victory of the previous year and with 276 points has enough points on his account. Second place at the Hungaroring final between Antoine Bottiroli (GForce Racing) and Kurt Böhlen (Franz Wöss Racing) is likely to be in high form. Marcel Tobler (Jo Zeller Racing) still has purely theoretical chances on the podium. At least third place is still feasible for the Swiss. In the RAVENOL Formula 3 Cup this season Dr.Ralph Pütz (Belicon Motorsport) has impressively asserted himself. With 222 points, he is unassailably in the lead and would not be endangered by Christian Wachter, as well as the two third-placed drivers Christian Zeller and Dr. Ulrich Drechsler, who both scored the same number of points. For Pütz this success means a lot. In 2016 he entered the REMUS Formula Cup with a Reynard 303 VW. This season Dr.Ralph Pütz relied on a Dallara 305 Opel Spiess, which is used in cooperation with Franz Wöss Racing.
