Ideal springboard for higher tasks

Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup

If you want to enter formula racing or start a formula career in the future, the Drexler-Automotive Formula Cup is the ideal place to start. The formula series has its origins in the Austria Formula 3 Cup, which was founded in 1992. The first winner was Phililip Peter (AUT). The most prominent starter at that time was certainly Alexander Wurz (AUT). He started for RSM Marko, became champion in 1994 and started his formula career from Formula 3 to the premier class of Formula 1. The list of pilots who have continuously made their way in formula racing is long. The pilots who deserve special mention are Jan Seyffarth (GER), Harald Schlegelmilch (LV) and Jordi Weckx (BEL). Since the era of the REMUS Formula Cup the picture has changed since 2013. The entry possibilities have been extended. In addition to the established Formula 3 and Formula Renault categories, Formula 1600 was added, which soon led to Formula 4. Young drivers used their chance not only to get a whiff of racing air. They also took their first steps in formula racing. The REMUS Formula Cup offered an ideal entry opportunity due to all three combined formula classes. In addition one could get to know international racetracks.

Race Interruption prevents Vaclav Safar’s victory (GT2 Motorsport)

At the final of the REMUS Formula Cup, there could have been a big surprise at the Masaryk Racing Days in the first race. The Czech Vaclav Safar (GT2 Motorsport) had dominated the qualifying session at his Formula 3 premiere in Brno with a 1.52.982 min and put the champion Sandro Zeller (Jo Zeller Racing) under pressure. The Swiss beat back in the starting duel and led the field in both, the REMUS Formula Cup and the FIA CEZ. In the run-up to the slower vehicles, Vaclav Safar overtook Zeller. Just at this time a Formula Renault blocked the road. This was the trigger for the red flag and race interruption. Zeller was the winner because of the score of the previous completed lap. Safar finished second in his Formula 3 debut ahead of Philipp Regensperger, who was 1,078 seconds behind the winner. Kurt Böhlen (Franz Wöss Racing) finished fourth, followed by Andrea Cola (Monolite Racing), who kept Marcel Tobler (Jo Zeller Racing) in check.
