Richert to Race Formula 2 Car
David Richert will be racing a Formula 2 car in the BOSS GP Championship next month in Italy. Richert has signed with MM International Motorsport to compete in Round 6 of the championship at the historic race circuit of Monza.
This will be the first time that Richert returns to a race car after his victory in a Formula 3 car at Mugello in October, 2022. Last year Richert finished 2nd in the Drexler Automotive Formula 3 Cup championship standings and completed the season with 2 wins and 15 podium finishes.
It will be a significant milestone for Richert as this will be his debut race weekend in the highly powered Formula 2 race car. Next to Formula 1, a Formula 2 car is one of the quickest race cars on the planet. The performance of a Formula 2 car features a blistering acceleration of 0-100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds, a top speed around 330 km/h, and cornering forces reaching 3.5G.
“I’m excited to get back into a race car and it’s going to be a great opportunity to drive an extremely fast race car in a competitive series at one of the premier race circuits on the planet. It will be a big challenge to get up to speed and jump into a car partway through the season, but hopefully past experiences and preparation over the next few weeks will make it a successful event. And a big thanks to Dr. Wiens and his team at Image Plus Laser Eye Centre for helping to make this happen.” -David Richert
BOSS GP bills itself as the fastest race series in Europe and the 2023 championship has featured a wide array of different drivers including Antonio Pizzonia (former Formula 1 driver), Fabian Vettel (brother of 4x Formula 1 World Champion, Sebastian Vettel) and recently seen completing demonstration runs at a BOSS GP event in Assen, NL, was Nyck de Vries who was replaced by Daniel Ricciardo at Scuderia AlphaTauri F1 Team last month.
MM International Motorsport, based in the area of Pisa, Italy, has been competing in BOSS GP for the last decade.
