Podium in Germany
David Richert has taken another podium finish with a 3rd place result at Hockenheimring in Germany this weekend in the Drexler Automotive Formula 3 Cup.
The two practice sessions went according to plan for Richert and the Franz Woess Racing team as they found their Volkswagen powered Formula 3 car in 2nd place for each of the sessions. Qualifying, originally scheduled for late in the afternoon, was cancelled due to an unfortunate serious incident in another championship which forced the stoppage of all track activity for the remainder of the day. Starting positions for the race where determined by lap times in Practice 2.
Despite a last lap scare when his car became stuck in 4th gear, Richert was able to take another podium with a 3rd place finish in Race 1 and then narrowly missed a second podium in Race 2 by finishing 4th.
"Although we were hoping to finish higher up the podium, I'm very happy with the progress we made throughout the weekend and I'm confident that we are now driving faster than we've done all season. I expect we'll be able to carry a lot of these positives into the next race weekend and continue pushing at the front of the field." -David Richert
Richert has now solidified his position in the Drexler Automotive Formula 3 Cup and will finish no lower than 2nd overall in the championship standings. After a short summer break, the championship will resume in Brno, Czech Republic, from September 9 - 11.
