Motorsport Festival at the Salzburgring in the starting blocks

Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup

Under the direction of the Austrian-German organizer duo Rene Binna and Christoph Gerlach, the motorsport festival will start on the Salzburgring on 11-12 July. It is the first event of its kind after the lockdown at the gates of the Mozart city. In addition, the circuit racing season in Austria is now also starting, with a delay. All the more reason for all teams and drivers to be really looking forward to the event. For the Drexler Formula Cup with Formula 3, Formula Renault and Formula 4 the waiting is over: "We are happy that it finally starts", says coordinator Franz Wöss. The motor sport festival has a lot of circuit sport in the program at the Salzburgring. The Touring Car Classics will be part of the programme with a variety of racing cars from the "Golden Era" of DTM and STW, some of which are still driven by stars of the 80s and 90s themselves. The Suzuki Swift Cup Europe is really exciting. In this one-make cup especially many drivers from Austria will come to their first motorsport event this year. This also applies to the Pfister-Racing Touring Car Challenge. From the 50s and 60s the cars of the Dunlop A Gentle Drivers Trophy can be admired. The organizer has made a strong commitment to the premiere of a new event format. Numerous discussions with the local authorities preceded the engagement in order to be able to finally give the starting signal for the motorsport festival. However, the fans are not allowed to be on site this year. The Corona restrictions must still be implemented. For this reason the organizer offers a livestream, which will show all race series at the Salzburgring. "Via the livestream the fans will get a first impression and hopefully whet their appetite for the continuation of the new event format", says Rene Binna.

Start of the season from 10-12 July at the Salzburgring

Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup

Due to the Corona pandemic, the Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup has fixed a revised racing calendar for the 2020 season. Six races are planned for the time being, but the principle still applies that all dates require the approval of the local authorities. We start from 10th to 12th July on the Salzburgring. The race track at the gates of the city of Mozart marks the beginning, after the race on the Red Bull Ring was cancelled in mid-May. "The organizer presented a hygiene concept for the Salzburgring, which finally met with the approval of the authorities. For weeks they worked on it. Of course, the health of the drivers and teams, but also of all employees and helpers of the organizer is still our top priority", says coordinator Franz Wöss.

Red Bull Ring season opener cancelled

Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup

The season opener of the Drexler Formula Cup, which was planned for May 15-17, has been cancelled. On Friday (24.04.) the organizer of the Circuit Trophy informed all series and participants that no event will be held on the Formula 1 circuit in mid-May. Due to the restrictions caused by the Corona pandemic in Austria, race director Gerhard Leeb had already had a bad feeling in the last few weeks whether the traditional event could take place in Styria. "The top priority is of course the safety for all fans, for the teams and active participants and our own organisation team", says Leeb. He was not only concerned with the safety regulations on and off the track. The majority of the participants of the expected race series would have come from abroad, which is not feasible under the current travel regulations across Europe. The program at the Red Bull Ring was really well set up, not only because of the free entry. With the TCR Europe, MAXX Formular, Audi R8 LMS Cup, P9 Challenge as well as the Drexler Formula Cup and the Renault Twingo and Clio Cup the programme was interesting and varied for the fans. The Moto "Motorsport at your fingertips" has been close to the organiser's heart for years and the fans thank him again and again with their visit. They can look forward to the coming year, when the next Leeb Rundstreckentrophy is planned for May 2021. For the Drexler Formula Cup the Salzburgring on June 12th - 14th is now announced as a possible season opener. But you don't have to be a prophet to put a big question mark over the event. "We are in contact with the organizer every week and also know that they are trying to find alternative dates. To date, the event has not yet been officially cancelled," says coordinator Franz Wöss.

Danny Luderer gets into Formula 3

Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup

news02Danny Luderer is currently preparing for his premiere season in the Drexler Formula Cup. The trained roof plumber is at home in Vogtland, Saxony, and will be driving a Formula 3 for the first time in 2020. Over the winter months, the Formula 3 racing car has been prepared. Luderer is really looking forward to the season and wants to play a good role in the field. Last year he was able to gain a lot of circuit experience in Formula Renault and won the Carbonia Cup, where he was able to prevail against the predominantly younger competition in the end. Although he has always followed motorsport with great interest and took his first steps in drifting, driving a race car came as a complete surprise to the 48-year-old. Luderer was given a test drive in the Formula Renault in Most as a gift. After the initial first few kilometres, the Grünbach driver immediately found the Monoposti to his liking with plenty of driving pleasure. Now a new challenge is waiting for him with his entry into the Drexler Formula Cup. "I am already looking forward to the start of the season", says the Grünbach driver. However, when and where this will take place in 2020 is not yet clear. The corona pandemic will continue to test the patience of motorsport.
