First victories of the season for Brajnik and Kacovsky

Drexler Automotive Formula Cup - Hungaroring (HUN)

At the 5th round of the Drexler Formula Cup at the Hungaroring there were new winners on the podium. Sandro Zeller (Jo Zeller Racing) was already determined as the new champion before the race weekend and was not at the start in Hungary, like other drivers from Switzerland and Italy. In both qualifying sessions Paolo Brajnik with his Dallara F317 with approx. 30 "more horsepower" as the FIA zone regulations allow, the field was very manageable due to the Corona pandemic and its effects. Brajnik likes the 4.381 km long Formula 1 circuit. Last year he was on the podium in all three races and even won the 1st race. He was able to repeat this success this year in the first race on Saturday and won ahead of Oliver Michl (F-Racing) and Daniel Tapinos (Franz Wöss Racing) with his Dallara F308-311 Mugen. Shortly before the start a part of the side box of Matej Kacovsky's Dallara ((HKC Racing) caught fire, which forced the Czech to retire early. In wet conditions and a partly very slippery track the second run was held on Sunday. At first Paolo Brajnik spun and retired early because the engine failed. Matej Kacovsky in the Dallara F308 then took the lead from the front row of the grid and held it until the finish. The Czech controlled the field during the 11-lap distance and gained a comfortable lead of 26.318 seconds. Behind him, Daniel Tapinos finished second. The Greek climbed to the podium for the first time in 2020 and was able to push Oliver Michl to third position. Formula 3 returnee Antonin SUS (Franz Wöss Racing) got off to a good start and was happy to finish fourth twice. In the Formula 3 Trophy classification, Prof.Dr.Ralph Pütz (Franz Wöss Racing) scored the necessary points for overall victory. Benjamin Berta (F-Racing) didn't let anything burn in Formula 4 and took a double victory at the home game. Patrick Schober (Procar Motorsport) missed his chance to get closer to the Hungarian. In the Formula Renault Dr.Norbert Groer set himself well in scene with two podium positions and could extend his lead in the table. Local hero Oliver Michl scored the full points, but he is still behind Dr.Norbert Groer.
