2022 will see the arrival of the new Formula 4 vehicle generation

Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup

The new generation of Formula 4 cars announced for 2022 will make its way into the Drexler Formula Cup. "We are taking the next step in Formula 4 and are tendering this category for junior racing for the coming year," says coordinator Franz Wöss. In close cooperation with the ESET V4 Cup and the Austrian Racing Car National Championship, the Drexler Formula Cup will offer young talents the opportunity to use the new generation of vehicles. The new Formula 4 Monoposto has been improved and revised in many areas compared to the previous model, especially in terms of safety. In addition to an improved monocoque, the halo roll bar is one of the striking features of the 180-hp race car. The 1.4-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine already installed has 20 hp more under the hood from the new season. "We are thus continuing along the path of offering young drivers the opportunity to drive with us in the Drexler Formula Cup and take their first steps on the circuit," says Franz Wöss.

In addition, Formula 4 will compete in a separate Trophy classification in the Drexler Formula Cup until 2021. With this planning security and the manageable costs, the Drexler Formula Cup can definitely score points. In 2022, seven Formula 1 race tracks in Europe alone are planned for the eight events. In the past, a number of up-and-coming drivers have taken the stage in the Drexler Formula Cup. Luca Stolz (GER), Jakub Smiechowski (POL) and Christopher Höher (AUT), for example, raced in the formula racing series with its roots in Austria. Stolz and Höher made it into the ADAC GT Masters. Smiechowski moved up to the LMP3 category in the European Le Mans Series. The most recent example of this development is Nico Gruber. The 20-year-old young Austrian came from Formula 4 and entered Formula Renault, which he won in commanding fashion. The next step followed with his entry into the ADAC TCR Germany. This year, Nico Gruber celebrated his first success there. In his second season with Hyundai Team Engstler, he won ten of 14 rounds in the junior classification and took the junior title.
