Facts and figures for the 2023 season

Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup

"After the finale in Mugello, we can look back on the past season and say that it was a successful year for the Drexler Formula Cup, which ended with an exciting finale in Tuscany. Our thanks go to the participants and teams, as well as the sponsors and supporters of our formula series, which has established itself in Europe with further internationalisation," says coordinator Franz Wöss. To emphasise this fact once again, the cooperation with the ZINOX F2000 Trophy from Italy should be highlighted. Both series together form the basis for exciting formula racing and are still regarded as a platform for Formula 3 and Formula Renault. Of the eight race weekends held, seven took place on Formula 1 circuits alone. "We should also have this on the agenda for 2024. The Formula 1 tracks are a special challenge for the Formula 3 drivers," says Franz Wöss.


Benjamin Berta (Franz Wöss Racing) crowned champion in Tuscany

Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup - Mugello (ITA)

The trip to Tuscany was worthwhile for Benjamin Berta in all respects. The Hungarian from the Franz Wöss Racing team scored the necessary points to win the title at the 8th round of the Drexler Formula Cup in Mugello. The final was marked by enormous tension and, as was to be expected, the Formula 3 drivers from the ZINOX F2000 Trophy did not play an unimportant role in the awarding of points. Francesco Galli (G Motorsport) took pole position in qualifying with a 1:39.917, beating Juju Noda (Noda Racing) by 0.467 seconds. Benjamin Berta was close behind, ahead of defending champion Sandro Zeller (Jo Zeller Racing). The start of the first race on Sunday morning was delayed by 45 minutes due to a wall of fog in Mugello. In the start duel Galli kept the upper hand against Berta and Noda, while Sandro Zeller lost his fourth position to Bernardo Pellegrini (HT Powertrain). In the early stages, a safety car period neutralised the race. Bejamin Berta completed the re-start flawlessly and passed Galli, with the Italian reacting immediately to regain first position. The pace of the group of three with Berta, Galli and Noda was impressive. They managed to open a gap to the chasers. Galli didn't let up and took his chance to overtake Berta in a manoeuvre. Behind them, the positions were decided. Galli won ahead of Berta, who was crowned champion early. Behind Noda and Pellegrini, Sandro Zeller finished in fifth place.


Hot finale in Tuscany

Drexler - Automotive Formula Cup - Mugello (ITA)

The Drexler Formula Cup is entering the home straight in its 10th season at Mugello. Next weekend (06.-08.10.) points will be awarded for the last time. The championship can boast a great field of starters on the 5.245-kilometre circuit at the Mugello Racing Weekend. "We have almost 40 Formula cars on the grid. Of course, Formula 3 is very strongly represented in the field," says coordinator Franz Wöss. Like all the teams and drivers, he is looking forward to the renewed encounter with the ZINOX F2000 Trophy, which presents the Formula 3 scene in Italy. The ultra-fast circuit in Tuscany has come into the limelight mainly due to the MotoGP races in recent years. For the Drexler Formula Cup, it is already the second appearance in Mugello, as they completed the season opener here this year. The winners in the spring were Benjamin Berta (Franz Wöss Racing) and Juju Noda (Noda Racing).
