Hockenheim (Germany), Achel (Belgium), 17 April 2021 – Under perfect racing conditions, Marvin Brandle from Germany dominated the FFR-FOR field in his Formula Opel Mk.II, closely followed by Pascal Monbaron from Switzerland in his Formula Ford Zetec, in both races for the ‘City of Stuttgart Trophy’ held at the Hockenheimring on 17 April. Behind the two leaders it was a closely fought race with many racing cars juggling for positions.
After so many races last year having to be cancelled due to Covid, the FFR-FOR drivers were happy to be out on the track again. With seventeen cars the field was a bit smaller than usual, as several drivers were unable to join because of travel restrictions, but it was enough for two interesting races and for the drivers to have fun. The next FFR-FOR track day will be held again at Hockenheim, on 8 May, as part of the FHR Spring Classic.
Although the event had to be held without spectators, the MSC Stuttgart has to be congratulated for organizing a great racing event at Hockenheim. The track days saw an interesting mix of racing classes, ranging from the ‘Fighting Dwarfs’ to sportscars to Porsche GTs, as well as the formula cars of the FFR-FOR.
