Competition for points at Sachsenring

Competition for points at Sachsenring

03.06.2013: ATS Formula 3 Cup The 3.645-km circuit with uphill and downhill sections is considered one of the most demanding

ATS Formula 3 Cup

The 3.645-km circuit with uphill and downhill sections is considered one of the most demanding and beautiful racetracks in Germany. Usually, it is a big attraction for motorcycling fans. However, the ATS Formula 3 Cup at the ADAC GT Masters weekend will present a true highlight of motorsports at the Sachsenring.

Local favourite Marvin Kirchhöfer from Leipzig is leading the Cup ranking. Will he be able to extend his lead or will his teammates put him under pressure again? The difference between the first and second in the Trophy ranking amounts to just one point. The fourth racing weekend of the season promises to be exciting.

It remains to be seen if Marvin Kirchhöfer will be able to use his home advantage. After all, there will be no test sessions at Sachsenring, and the Omega turn poses a real challenge to all drivers. And the very long left which follows does not make it easier.

A maximum of 69 points are up for grabs at the weekend. It will be exciting to see if the title favourite can extend his lead over his team-mate Artem Markelov from Moscow (both Lotus / Dallara F311 Volkswagen Power Engine).  Sebastian Balthasar from Cologne (GU-Racing / Dallara F311 Mercedes) holds a narrow lead in the Trophy ranking.

Maybe Freddy Killensberger from Wortelstetten (GU-Racing / Dallara F307 OPC-Challenge) manages to score one point more than his team-mate.

“F1 in Schools” at the ATS Formula 3 Cup truck

Visiting the paddock is always interesting. This time, there will be special winners at the ATS Formula 3 Cup truck, the Bavarian winning team of “F1 in Schools”, an international technology challenge in which teams of students aged 11 to 19 design and manufacture a miniature Formula 1 race car which will participate in a 20-metre race, powered by a gas cartridge.

The purpose of this programme is to improve understanding in the areas product development, technology and science and to show career opportunities in technical professions. The winning team represents Germany in the “F1 in Schools” World Finals which take place every year ahead of a Formula 1 Grand Prix.

“Meet the drivers”

The next chance to hunt for autographs and to get close to the drivers will be on Saturday, at 2.45 p.m. Marvin Kirchhöfer, Austrian Thomas Jäger (Performance Racing / Dallara F311 Volkswagen Power Engine) and Nabil Jeffri from Kuala Lumpur (Eurointernational / Dallara F311 Volkswagen Power Engine) will answer questions from fans at the ADAC Hospitality.

Live timing and a live stream will be available during the races for fans at home. The free practice session will start at 9.15 a.m. on Friday, with the battle for the fastest lap following at 2.10 p.m. in the qualifying session. Race one will take place on Saturday at 11 a.m., race two at 4.20 p.m. Race three on Sunday at 10.55 a.m. will ensure another thrill-packed ride.
