Slipstream duels in the Ardennes

Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup - Spa Francorchamps (BEL)

The Drexler Formula Cup comes to Spa Francorchamps for its 4th round next weekend (25-27.06.2021). 2017 was the last time the event was held in the Ardennes under the banner of the REMUS Formula Cup. "It's almost a good tradition that we race at the Spa Summer Classic. Of course, we are looking forward to top-class duels on the Ardennes rollercoaster," says coordinator Franz Wöss. The 7.004-kilometre Formula 1 circuit has always been considered a special attraction. More than 30 Formula cars are expected. Drivers from 10 nations will be there to provide excitement in both sprint races. How could it be otherwise, Formula 3 will be very strongly represented.
