Preview: Le Castellet

The BOSS GP Racing Series is coming to Le Castellet with a top-class starting field for the French Historic Grand Prix (June 17-19, 2022). Racing legends await teams and drivers there.

Just two weeks after the races at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, the BOSS GP Racing Series continues its European tour in France. The fourth edition of the Grand Prix de France Historique at Circuit Paul Ricard provides the ideal setting to bring the past back to life. Located near the sea, between Marseille and Toulon, fans and drivers can expect an event full of awakened memories.

With a bombastic grid of over 25 cars, including Formula 1 race cars from Toro Rosso, Jaguar and Benetton, IndyCars and monopostos from Formula 2, GP2, World Series and Auto GP, Europe’s fastest racing series will contest rounds 5 and 6 of the season at Le Castellet. Also taking part are four Frenchmen: Didier Sirgue (Jaguar R2), David Moretti (GP2), Jean-Christophe Peyre (Auto GP) and Alain Girardet (WSbR), joined by Nicolas Matile (Auto GP) and Marc Faggionato (GP2), who will be competing under a Monegasque license.

Entry list:

Race Track:

The 5.8-kilometer Circuit Paul Ricard is a track that is demanding from a driving point of view and at the same time has some high-speed passages to offer. Well situated climatically, with around 180 different track variations and extremely safe, the circuit is a paradise for test drives for good reason. The Big Open Single Seater’s last race here was held in 2017.

Preview: Red Bull Ring Spielberg

This coming weekend (June 3-5), the BOSS GP Racing Series will be returning to the Red Bull Ring with the fastest racing cars in the world. Among them cars from Vettel, Klien and Berger.

Before the Formula 1 Austrian Grand Prix is held at the Red Bull Ring in just over a month’s time, priceless showpieces can already be spotted in racing action at Spielberg this coming weekend. Europe’s fastest racing series, BOSS GP, will gather several thousands of horsepower on the grid from Friday to Sunday. 22 Big Open Single Seaters – Formula 1, IndyCar, Formula 2 and GP2, World Series by Renault and Nissan – will ensure a program at the Red Bull Ring that cannot be overheard.

The orchestra includes, among others, the Toro Rosso STR3, with which Sebastien Vettel celebrated his first race victory in the rain at Monza, Christian Klien’s first Formula 1 car, the Jaguar R5 and Gerhard Berger’s last winning car, the Benetton B197. In addition, the US IndyCar bolide of Anton Werner (GER, Ryschka Motorsport) also joins the colorful starting field. A familiar face will also be making his comeback in the BOSS GP Racing Series: Frits van Eerd (NLD, VES Racing), ProAM World Champion in the 2021 World Endurance Championship and a long-time BOSS GP driver, will try to stand up to opening double winner Ingo Gerstl (AUT, Top Speed) in the Toro Rosso STR1 with his Jaguar R5.

Preview: Hockenheim

Three years after its last appearance at Hockenheim, the BOSS GP Racing Series will be back at the start of the traditional event in honour of Jim Clark next weekend. We have summarised everything you need to know.

Tens of thousands of fans will return to the Motodrom from 6 to 8 May 2022 to honour the widely honoured Scottish racing driver Jim Clark, who tragically lost his life in a Formula 2 race at Hockenheim in 1968. They will all bring the past back to life this weekend through intense racing action.

However, the organisers of the Bosch Hockenheim Historic are not afraid of building a bridge to the modern age. And so the BOSS GP Racing Series has not only been a regular part of the Jim Clark Revival for years, but also a real crowd-puller. The Big Open Single Seater series was born out of a fundamental question: What should be done with the numerous old cars from classes such as Formula 1, IndyCar, GP2, Auto GP, A1 GP, Superleague Formula or even the World Series? Put them in a museum? Or bring them back to the race track? The answer was obvious. And so the BOSS GP 2022 enters its 28th season this coming weekend. Here are the entrants for the first of six season events in 2022:

Support races:

In addition to the BOSS GP Racing Series, five other formula series will be part of the Bosch Hockenheim Historic: Formula 2, plus the Historic Race Car Association‘s racing cars represent the legendary junior Formula Ford, Vee, Super Vee and Formula 3. The Raceclub Germany is home to various single-seater categories up to Formula 1. The Lurani Trophy is a reminiscence of the legendary Formula Junior, which formed the springboard for a great career for countless top talents. And the Historic Formula Vee Europe is, as the name suggests, about one of the most successful and long-lived junior formulas in history. They all open up a glimpse into a past in which perhaps not everything was more beautiful, but in which legends were written and which is associated with numerous and varied memories, not only among older racing fans.

Fans of historic touring cars, GTs and prototypes will also get their money’s worth at the Bosch Hockenheim Historic. Five other racing series are dedicated to the automotive jewels with roofs, some of which date back to the 1950s, and which offer absolute highlights in the colourful programme of the traditional event, and not only in the form of the brute racers of the legendary Group C.

Side events at the Hockenheim Historic

An event like the Bosch Hockenheim Historic thrives above all on interaction with the fans. The paddock and pit area are open and visible to everyone. All the action on the race track will be broadcast on Saturday and Sunday via a large video screen in the Sachs Curve, so that the spectators in the inner grandstand will be well informed at all times about what is happening on the rest of the 4.5-kilometre Grand Prix circuit. In addition, a wide range of information is displayed on the big screen. And if you want to enjoy some quiet time before, during or after your visit to the paddock and grandstands, you can simply visit the Jim Clark exhibition in the congress pavilion.

Tickets:

The ticket prices reflect the family character of the event. Friday tickets start at 10 euros, day tickets for Saturday and Sunday are available from 30 euros, and those who want to experience the entire weekend up close and personal can get in for 45 euros. And for those who like it a bit more exclusive, VIP packages are available from 200 euros. Tickets are available via the online ticket shop or by calling the hotline at +49 6205 950 222.

First look at 2022

Seven race events on the calendar for the BOSS GP Racing Series in 2022. Among them the return to France.

The 28th season of the only true Big Open single seater series will start at the beginning of May and not end until November 2022, which should ensure a largely trouble-free season even under the circumstances of the COVID pandemic. The provisional race calendar includes only Formula 1 and MotoGP level circuits. This guarantees a modern infrastructure and high safety standards.

The first two of 14 races in 2022 will take place at the Jim Clark Revival at the Hockenheimring on 6, 7 and 8 May. This is followed by the home race of the Austrian-registered racing series at the Red Bull Ring on 4 and 5 June. One of the season highlights is the return to “Paul Ricard” for the French Historic Grand Prix (17-19 June).

Start of race 2 at Paul Ricard 2017.
Memories: BOSS GP 2017 in Le Castellet

Another race is listed for July, but confirmation is still pending. This race is intended as a replacement for the 2021 event at the Nürburgring, which had been cancelled due to the flood disaster in the nearby Ahr Valley.

From 9 to 11 September, the BOSS GP Racing Series will once again run as the main act at the Masaryk Racing Days in Brno. The season ends with an Italian double: first at “Forza Fanatec” in Mugello from14-16 October, then at Misano (4-6 November) for the “Pirelli Grande Finale”.

More news about the 2022 season coming soon on www.bossgp.com and on our social media channels Facebook and Instagram.

Preview Monza

Last tour stop for Europe’s fastest racing series in the 2021 season: The BOSS GP Racing Series storms through the park of Monza at over 300 kph.

Monza and BOSS GP seem to be the perfect match, as both form a wonderful symbiosis of tradition and modernity. While high-tech racing cars from the last 20 years can be watched at full volume and in real races at the BOSS GP Racing Series, the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza has been the venue for the Formula One Italian Grand Prix since 1950 (except in 1980). A large part of the original layout has been adapted to modern safety standards and is still used today, although the steep concrete curves can only be admired on foot.

The BOSS GP line-up last competed in Monza two years ago. Phil Stratford (USA, Penn Elcom Racing) and Ingo Gerstl (AUT, Top Speed) won that time. Meanwhile, Ingo is on the verge of obtaining his seventh BOSS GP championship title in the OPEN class. Realistically, only an early technical defect on his Toro Rosso STR1 or an accident can still prevent the Salzburg citizen from winning another title in Monza. Gerstl’s last remaining rival in the 2021 overall standings, Ulf Ehninger (GER, ESBA Racing), is inferior in terms of performance and aerodynamics in his blue and white Benetton F1 from the 1997 season.

In contrast, the FORMULA class with its numerous Formula 2 and GP2 cars is much closer together. Recently, however, drivers with their Auto GP and World Series by Renault 3.5 cars have also been able to get involved on a regular basis, as Harald Schlegelmilch (LVA, HS Engineering) proved in Brno. Irishman Paul O’Connell will sit in Schlegelmilch’s car in Monza and the question on everyone’s lips is: Will he also be able to cause a surprise? After the cancelled races at the Nürburgring will not be held until 2022, Italian Marco Ghiotto (Scuderia Palladio) will be the FORMULA champion for the third time in a row. Simone Colombo (ITA, MM International), who has scored points with consistency so far, has the best chance of finishing second before the final. But only one point behind his teammate is compatriot Luca Martucci. All three are chasing the coveted home victory in Monza. Andreas Fiedler (GER, Fiedler Racing), who has recently moved closer to the top-runners, has also a great chance of stepping onto the podium.

Preview Brno

The BOSS GP Racing Series is back on the starting grid at the Masaryk Racing Days in Brno.

Europe’s fastest racing series will return to the Automotodrom in Brno this weekend. From Friday to Sunday, 20 of the world’s fastest racing cars representing Formula 1, Formula 2, GP2, World Series by Renault and Formula 3000 will gather in the Czech Republic’s second-largest city for the fourth of five 2021 season events for an unforgettable experience. The public is admitted to the Masaryk Racing Days, and the paddock can also be visited. A weekend ticket costs 16 euros, a one-day ticket 12 euros – tickets are sold directly at the entrances.

With a length of 5.403 kilometres, the circuit on the western outskirts of the city is the second longest on the 2021 BOSS GP race calendar after Monza. Fast and flowing corners alternate with a technically demanding section. Engine power is also a decisive factor because the Czech rollercoaster is steeply uphill in the last third of the track. Ideal terrain, therefore, for Ulf Ehninger (GER, ESBA Racing) in the Benetton B197 and Ingo Gerstl (AUT, Top Speed) in the Toro Rosso STR1 to bring their V10 power to bear. In the FORMULA class, Marco Ghiotto (ITA, Scuderia Palladio) will try to take his sixth win of the season. However, his fiercest opponents, Simone Colombo and Luca Martucci (both ITA, MM International), will have something against it. After a one race break, Red Bull Ring winner Harald Schlegelmilch (LVA, HS Engineering) is also back in the field. In the SUPER LIGHTS, Maurizio Copetti (ITA) is the favourite in his V6 World Series machine.

In addition to the headliner BOSS GP, other race series will take place from Friday to Sunday: Drexler Formula Cup, ESET V4 Cup with the TCR Eastern Europe and the Renault Clio Cup Bohemia, Suzuki Swift Cup Europe and historic racing classes (HAIGO).

Preview Misano

For the first time, Europe’s fastest racing series visits the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli this weekend. Will the lap record fall at the Forza Fanatec event?

From 18 to 20 June, Misano will be the venue for round 3 of the BOSS GP Racing Series 2021. For the first time, the Big Open Single Seaters will stop at the Adriatic Sea and offer the pilots the unique chance to attack the lap record on the modern racetrack within sight of the popular seaside resort of Rimini. The current lap record is 1:25.380, set 13 years ago by Clivio Piccione during an Auto GP series race.

For many BOSS GP drivers, the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli is new territory, as it is for the series in its 27th season. Two 30 minutes free practice sessions on Friday should help to familiarise with the 4.2-kilometre-long racetrack. To be on the safe side, one or the other pilot also put in a few practice sessions in the racing simulator.

The track has been in operation since 1972, the biggest reconstruction took place in 2006 and 2007, when the direction of the track was turned (now clockwise) to create more space for run-off areas. The track now has the highest safety standards, as do all the other tracks on the BOSS GP Racing Series calendar. Last weekend, the World Superbike Championship raced at Misano, other highlights in the 2021 schedule are the MotoGP and Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe events.

Preview Spielberg

Swift comeback of BOSS GP in Spielberg: After two years, Europe’s fastest racing series returns to Austria for its home race with a special highlight.

Several thousand horsepower will meet on the Formula 1 racetrack at the Red Bull Ring next Friday and Saturday. In a flawless programme, 24 Big Open Single Seaters – Formula 1, IndyCar, GP2, World Series by Renault and Formula 3000 – will make a stop in Styria. Sebastian Vettel’s winning car from 2008, the Toro Rosso STR3, a Jaguar R3, two Benetton B197s (including Gerhard Berger’s), a Sauber C30 from 2011 and finally, once again, an IndyCar will be a feast for the eyes and ears. With Ingo Gerstl (STR1-F1, Top Speed), Bianca Steiner (GP2, Steiner Motorsport), Christian Ferstl (F2, Top Speed), Thomas Jakoubek (GP2, Top Speed) and Michael Aberer (GP2, MA Motorsport) there are also five local drivers on the starting grid.

The STM waterjet race on 20 and 21 May 2021 is a 2-day event– on Friday there will be two practice sessions, on Saturday a qualifying in addition to both races. A special highlight is a separate show run for Formula 1 and IndyCars on Friday afternoon. The Formula 1 racetrack in the Alps replaces the Jim Clark Revival at the Hockenheimring, which was cancelled in May. The Red Bull Ring was last on the race calendar of the BOSS GP Racing Series in 2019. The race winners back then: Phil Stratford (USA, Penn Elcom Racing) and Ingo Gerstl (AUT, Top Speed). Many drivers and fans are happy about the return of the Big Open Single Seater to the Austrian iconic circuit. At the same time, the STM waterjet race at the Red Bull Ring is also the home race of the championship sanctioned by the Austrian Motorsport Federation. Other series on the agenda include the Drexler Formula Cup and the Suzuki Swift Cup Europe in addition to the GT race cars from the P9 Challenge. Unfortunately, no spectators are allowed on site, but they can follow the event via the BOSS GP social media channels.

Preview & Guide Brno

The season’s races number 5 and 6 of Europe’s fastest racing series will take place this weekend at the Automotodrom in Brno.

The second largest city in the Czech Republic will once again host a Big Open Single Seater event this year. On the Brno racetrack, fast and flowing curves alternate with section that is technically demanding to say the least, making it many BOSS GP racing drivers’ favourite track. On the 5.4-kilometer-long track, the engine power of the V10 and V8 rockets is also decisive, as the Czech roller coaster takes a steep surge in the last third of the track.

Visitors are welcome this time

For the first time this year, viewers can experience the BOSS GP Racing Series live. A day ticket for the open grandstand’s (with a video wall) costs only 4 euros; parking is free of charge. Only the access to the paddock is unfortunately not possible for visitors due to the regulations for the containment of the Coronavirus. In addition to the headliner BOSS GP, numerous other racing series can be seen from Thursday to Sunday: The ESET V4 Cup with races from GT, TCR and one-make trophies, plus the Drexler Formula Cup, the Suzuki Swift Cup Europe and historic racing classes.

Preview & Guide Spa

The Big Open Single Seaters are going to rock the Ardennes this weekend.

The fastest racing series in Europe returns to Spa and its famous surroundings: Eau Rouge, Blanchimont and Stavelot. On August 1 and 2, the BOSS GP Racing Series will visit the legendary 7-kilometer Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps – after a nine-year break! The wishes of the drivers and teams as well as the circumstances of the last months have finally made a comeback possible. Among others, Ingo Gerstl’s Toro Rosso STR1, Riccardo Ponzio’s Jaguar R3, Ulf Ehninger’s 1997 Benetton as well as numerous GP2 cars will be seen at the event.

Similar to the season opener in Imola three weeks ago, this is also a two-day event. The schedule with almost three hours of driving time is accordingly compact: On Saturday, two practice sessions will be held, followed by qualifications on Sunday and, as usual, two races. In addition to the Formula 1 and Formula 2 racing cars from the last eras, the German Touring Car Masters and the new GT support series “DTM Trophy” will be competing at Spa.
