Europe's fastest racing series celebrates its 25th birthday with a European tour. Only at BOSS GP fans can see Formula 1 and Formula 2 cars from the last 20 years in competition.


-    Unique mix of racing cars
-    12 races ...
-    ... on six top tracks in Europe
-    in Assen in the DTM program
-    Fans come closer than ever





The 25th season of the Big Open Single Seater started this weekend traditionally with the Jim Clark Revival in the Motodrom of Hockenheim. Due to the bad weather, the two races were held on Sunday.



In front of DTM driver Timo Glock the BOSS GP stars showed a lot of overtaking action on Sunday. A three-way fight in the FORMULA class set the dramaturgy for the races: Salvatore de Plano (ITA, Top Speed) battled with BOSS GP rookie Alessandro Bracalente (ITA, Speed Center) and Andreas Fiedler (DEU, Fiedler Racing) for class victory.



 In the opening stage of the races, Fiedler was twice able to overtake the opponents who had started in front of him and take the lead. In the first race Marco Ghiotto (ITA, Scuderia Palladio) was also in the mix – he finished second behind Fiedler, just in front of Bracalente. In race 2 he had finished fourth behind Fiedler-Bracalente-De Plano.



Record champion Ingo Gerstl (AUT, Top Speed) in the V10 Toro Rosso won both races in the OPEN class. This was a promising start to Gerstl's title defence.



FORMULA double winner Andreas Fiedler: "I used a trick at the start and overtook them. The newer GP2 cars have an advantage in some passages, but I still managed to keep them behind me. Mega!"



OPEN double winner Ingo Gerstl: "A good start into 2019 for the championship. BOSS GP is all about giving the fans a show and demonstrating the cars that they want to see and hear."



During driver's briefing BOSS GP commemorated Charlie Whiting, FIA race director for many years, with a minute's silence. Whiting knew the BOSS GP very well and was jointly responsible for making the series' guest appearance at the 2018 German Formula 1 Grand Prix possible.




Official FIA Series



BOSS GP is the fastest racing series in Europe and one of the most spectacular in international motorsport. Young racing talent mixes with ambitious gentlemen drivers. The name 'BOSS' stands for Big Open Single Seater, which means: Only the large and powerful formula racing cars of recent years are allowed here. In addition to the Formula 1 racing cars of recent years, the BOSS GP racing series is open to Formula 2, IndyCar, World Series by Renault and A1 GP. BOSS GP is officially authorized as an International Championship by the FIA.




Everyone is V.I.P.



Fans come closer than ever to original Formula 1 cars. In most races the fans can watch the teams from the front row at work. All drivers are available to fans for autographs and questions.





Next races




On the second race weekend from 23 to 25 May, BOSS GP will make a guest appearance in the new home of the racing series. At the Red Bull Ring in Austria, the Big Open Single Seaters will share the program with the KTM X-Bow Battle for the first time. The sports car racing series is one of the strongest one-make championships in the world.



In June (14–16) the first of two Italian appearances of the BOSS GP 2019 will take place at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza. On Italy’s fastest motorway, the adrenaline level will rise as always, because besides skill, the drivers will also need a lot of courage.


Another highlight in the 2019 calendar is the popular event in Assen (Netherlands). This time the BOSS GP will be part of the DTM programme (19 to 21 July). Last year, BOSS GP and the German premium touring car series had already contested an event together in Spielberg, now the partnership is being extended.



From September 6th to 8th, the BOSS GP will once again attend the Masaryk Racing Days in Brno. The Czech racetrack attracts with a roller coaster that is well appreciated by the drivers.


BOSS GP will return to Italy for the final round of 2019 and to Imola after a one-year break. The races will take place on the former Formula 1 track from 11 to 13 October.



As usual, every race weekend will have two races of 20–25 minutes each, in addition to training and qualifying.





Further dates 2019


23–25 May     Spielberg (AUT) – Pirelli Masters (Thursday to Saturday!)
