Benjamin Berta and Juju Noda win at season opener

Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup - Mugello (ITA)

At the first meeting of the Drexler Formula Cup in the still young season Benjamin Berta (Franz Wöss Racing) and Juju Noda ( Noda Racing) could celebrate the opening victories. For the two youngsters, it was a dream come true to leave a whole series of established Formula 3 drivers behind them in the field of 34 cars. Of course, the victory of Japan's Juju Noda, who once again proved her talent in Formula racing and proved to be really competitive right from the start after switching from Formula Regional to Formula 3, outweighed all the others. Qualifying on the 5.245-kilometer circuit in Tuscany was dominated by Francesco Simonazzi ( BVM Racing), who, however, used the weekend for a test session and, as a guest starter, was not included in the official classification. Juju Noda reeled off 10 laps in qualifying and secured second place ahead of Paolo Brajnik (NV Racing), who in turn was able to relegate Marco Falci to fourth. Benjamin Berta and Sandro Zeller (Jo Zeller Racing) did not fare as well, finishing sixth and eighth respectively.


Season start in Tuscany

Drexler - Automotive Formula Cup - Mugello (ITA)

The Drexler Formula Cup starts its 10th season in Mugello. At the end of 2012, the FIA announced the end of the national Formula 3 championships. One of the leading teams at that time was called Austria Formula 3 Cup, which had to stop its sporting ambitions virtually overnight. But there were patrons and sponsors of the Formula 3 scene even back then. The Remus Formula Cup was the next step. After that, with the support of Drexler-Automotive GmbH from Salzweg in Bavaria, the current Formula Sprint Series was successfully continued and established as one of the most attractive Formula Series in Europe. Due to the cooperation with the ZINOX F2000 Trophy, which presents the Formula 3 scene in Italy, the Drexler Formula Cup can also offer a top-class calendar this season. The first stop this year is Mugello (March 24-25, 2023). Last year, the 5.245-kilometer race track in Tuscany hosted the finale, and if you will, the start of the season fits in seamlessly.
