2nd Place Finishes in Austria
A challenging weekend at the picturesque Red Bull Ring in Austria culminated with two more 2nd Place finishes for Manitoba born race car driver, David Richert.
After a poor qualifying performance saw Richert start Race 1 from 5th position, chaos broke out in the early stages of the race as several incidents including spins and crashes eventually brought out a safety car. Richert was able to capitalize and continue advancing his way up the field to take 2nd place on the podium.
In Race 2 on Sunday, Richert crossed the finish line in third behind Sandro Zeller and Tomas Chabr but was promoted to 2nd place after a penalty was handed out to Chabr.
"I feel extremely fortunate to leave Red Bull Ring with a couple of podium finishes as I wasn't able to achieve the type of performance I was hoping for from myself. I learned a lot though and we definitely made some progress this weekend, so there are a lot of positives to build from for the next race." -David Richert
Richert leaves Austria with a firm grasp on 2nd Overall in the 2022 Drexler-Automotive Formel 3 Cup championship standings.
The next race event will take place at the Vallelunga Circuit just north of Rome, Italy.
