Mourning the loss of Dirk Hartung

Drexler Automotive Formel Cup

dirk hartungHe has reported on all the Drexler Formula Cup races on social media in recent years. Dirk Hartung died unexpectedly this week. The organisation, all teams and drivers, as well as the supporters and sponsors of the formula series mourn the loss of Dirk Hartung. The journalist and photographer passed away unexpectedly in Vienna at the age of 57. Dirk Hartung had been involved in the organisation of the Drexler Formula Cup since 2018. With a great deal of commitment, he built up and shaped the image of the Formula Series on social media. He played a leading role in his journalistic and photographic activities, managing the Drexler Formula Cup Facebook page and developing it into an up-to-date medium. Not forgetting his contacts with journalists and photographers throughout Europe, who were entrusted with assignments and research by him. Dirk Hartung founded the Autosport.at agency in 1998. The task and also his way of reflecting the diversity in Austrian and even worldwide motorsport was one of the most important goals of his work. For this business model, he built up countless contacts with photographers from the motorsport scene in order to be able to provide up-to-date reports as a motorsport picture and news agency at all times. The Drexler Formula Cup also always found a worthy place on the Autosport.at agency's homepage with current reports and background stories. The Drexler Formula Cup would like to express its deepest sympathy to his partner and all those left behind. Dirk was a fun-loving and unique person. He was a valuable friend. We will miss him very much.
