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 Imola

BOSS GP brings back world-class motorsport to Italy this weekend.

The 26th BOSS GP racing season kicks off with Forza Fanatec in Imola (July 11th-12th), where the season finale is set to take place just 15 weeks later. The BOSS GP races are the first major motorsport event in Italy after the lockdown. Just like the races in Spa at the beginning of August (1-2), the meeting is a two-day event without spectators on site.

In Imola, there are a couple of new drivers and cars on the grid. All eyes are certainly on the 22-year-old Italian Riccardo Ponzio, who will make his debut with a 2002 Formula 1 car from Jaguar. With Ulf Ehninger (Benetton B197) and OPEN champion Ingo Gerstl (Toro Rosso STR1) two more Formula 1 cars are in the mix.

Other debutants are Austrian hill-climb specialist Christian Ferstl, former touring car ace Roman Hoffmann (both GP2) and Michael Aberer (AUT, WSbR). Also participating for the first time in the FORMULA class are Estonian Bruno Jarach and Italian Roberto Vanni, who will compete in the only Formula 3000 car.

They will take on champion Marco Ghiotto (Scuderia Palladio), Luca Martucci (MM International) and Florian Schnitzenbaumer (Top Speed), among others. We can also be excited about the first appearance of Salvatore De Plano in the A1GP Lola car of Coloni.

The new dry tyre from Pirelli in purple also makes its debut. This tyre is intended to enable experienced drivers to achieve faster lap times and make it easier for less experienced drivers to handle the “black gold”.

Modern and historic sports car and touring car series will round up the Gruppo Peroni event, as well as the Lotus Cup and the Alfa Revival Cup.

When are the BOSS GP cars on track?

Tour plan 2020

Europe’s most exciting racing series visits six top-class racetracks in the upcoming season – two of them are new on the schedule.

The 26th season of BOSS GP begins with a premiere. The opening race of this spectacular motorsport series will take place at the end of March in Mugello. The MotoGP circuit is one of the most popular tracks in Italy and is owned by Ferrari. In 2020 the location will be back on the BOSS GP schedule after a five-year break. From 27 to 29 March, the comeback of the Big Open Single Seater series will be the highlight of the Peroni Racing Weekend.

From 24 to 26 April, the fastest racing cars on the continent will be guests at the Hockenheimring in Germany. The Bosch Hockenheim Historic is one of the most important classic racing events in Europe and attracts numerous spectators to the Motodrom year after year. In the program of the revival dedicated to Jim Clark, BOSS GP is a perfect headliner.

A completely new racetrack for the BOSS GP pilots will follow in June: The Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli is the venue for races 5 and 6 of the season. The flat track is technically demanding and an ideal playground for BOSS GP racing. The racetrack near Rimini is located directly on the Adriatic coast and can be easily combined with a holiday.

Fantastic crowd at the Gamma Race Days in Assen

In 2020 the BOSS GP series is again part of the Gamma Race Days in Assen. After the summer break in July, Formula 1, Formula 2 and other spectacular monoposto cars will show their strength from 7 to 9 August in front of an enormous crowd of 100,000 Dutch fans. In addition to BOSS GP, motorcycles, touring cars and superkarts will also be putting the pedal to the metal. Admission is free.

The first weekend of September (4–6) will see the Masaryk Racing Days in Brno on the schedule of the BOSS GP racing series. The biggest Czech circuit will be once again a thrilling location, which has delivered exciting BOSS GP races in the past.

The grand final will take place in Imola like in 2019. After a successful comeback with fantastic races and satisfied drivers, BOSS GP will return to the Emilia-Romagna region on 23, 24 and 25 October. We hope for another exciting title decision as in FORMULA class 2019.

Unique motorsport is guaranteed with BOSS GP in 2020

As usual there will be two free practice sessions, one qualifying session and two 20 to 25-minute races on each race weekend. The exact timetables and ticket information will be published on bossgp.com prior to the races.

Trend-setting: BOSS GP with DTM in Spielberg

Everything you need to know about the big season finale of the BOSS GP as part of the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters at the Red Bull Ring.

What does the joint event with the DTM mean for the BOSS GP?
For the second time in its history, the BOSS GP is part of the programme of the largest touring car series in the world. Ingo Gerstl is the driver and co-initiator of the joint BOSS GP and DTM event in Spielberg. He sees the race as a great opportunity: “This race has the highest priority for us. The DTM package is attractive and many fans will become aware of the BOSS GP for the first time. Working with such a professional racing series is incredibly enriching.” A possible repetition or even expansion of the cooperation with the DTM cannot be ruled out in the future.

Who drives in Spielberg?
The stars are certainly the cars that make the most noise. What unites them all in the OPEN: 10 cylinders! Ingo Gerstl drives the first Toro Rosso from 2006. Phil Stratford starts in the 1997 Benetton of Jean Alesi. Alesi’s team-mate at the time is now DTM boss: Gerhard Berger. Another rare piece of motorsport history is Hans Laub’s Forti from the late 1990s. In the open class – the OPEN – Formula 1 cars, ChampCars and IndyCars are eligible to start from 1997 onwards. The engines are optional. They carry the starting numbers from 1 to 99.

The second, slower but by no means less interesting class is the one with the name FORMULA. Among others, Formula 2/GP2, A1 GP, Formula 3000 and GP3 cars are on the track here. Only original engines are allowed, the starting numbers from 100 to 999 are reserved for the FORMULA. No less than six starters in FORMULA come from Italy. With Sergio and Marco Ghiotto (Monza winner) the uncles of Formula 2 driver Luca will start together in the BOSS GP for the first time. From an Austrian perspective, the eyes are on Thomas Jakoubek. Jakoubek drove endurance races with the new Austrian rally champion Niki Mayr-Melnhof. Jakoubek has already shown several times this year in the BOSS GP that he can also drive fast. Interesting will be the start of young Alain Valente. The Swiss GT4 and Lamborghini Super Trofeo driver makes his BOSS GP debut at Speed Center Racing.

The full line-up is now online: http://bossgp.com/entry-list-all-starters-for-spielberg/

What about the championship?
Ingo Gerstl (AUT, Top Speed, Toro Rosso STR1) already made himself the champion of the big class at the penultimate race weekend in Brno. The tenth win of the season also meant the fourth BOSS GP title in the OPEN class, his third in a row.
While a decision has already been made in the OPEN, the FORMULA classification is still not decided yet: Florian Schnitzenbaumer (DEU, Top Speed, Dallara GP2) has been in the lead since the first race of the year. Two retirements in Monza and Assen have brought his fiercest competitor Andreas Fiedler (DEU, Fiedler Racing, Dallara GP2) closer again: Fiedler is 38 points behind Schnitzenbaumer before the final two races in Spielberg; 25 points are awarded for a race victory.

For Florian Schnitzenbaumer it would be the first title in the BOSS GP, and thus also the biggest success of his motorsport career to date. The Fiedler, who has switched from hill climb and sports car racing, is already fighting for the championship in his very first BOSS GP season, and a possible runner-up title can hardly be taken away from him. Both would be worthy champions in any case.

Even closer are the other positions, third place is vacant: Armando Mangini (ITA, MM International, GP2 Dallara) fights with Christian Eicke (SUI, Speed Center, GP2 Dallara) and Walter Steding (DEU, Inter Europol, GP2 Dallara), who have moved up to the front positions of the standings with consistency.
Before the final races in Spielberg, 31 drivers have already collected 2018 points in the BOSS GP season.

When is the BOSS GP on track?
The BOSS GP opens the event program in Spielberg on Friday, September 21st with the 1st Free Practice at 11:25 a.m., the 2nd Free Practice is scheduled at 3:30 p.m. local time.

Saturday, 22 September, qualifying will take place at 9:45 am. The qualifying is divided into two sessions: Q1 goes over 8 minutes and is reserved for the 5 fastest drivers from the totaled free practice sessions. After a break of 2 minutes all other drivers are allowed on the tracks, they have 20 minutes at their disposal. The final classification of this timed practice is the starting grid for both BOSS GP races.

The two races go over 20 minutes and will be started with a flying start. The first race will take place on Saturday at 16:00, the second race directly after the DTM race on Sunday afternoon (15:10).

Are there still tickets available?
Yes, there are still seats available on all grandstands (main, south-west and west) – either via the DTM ticket portal, oeticket.com or via GPTicketshop. Weekend tickets are already available from 30 euros. Reductions of up to 50 percent are available for young people and wheelchair-accompanying persons. For children to 7 years and wheelchair users the entrance is free.

On Friday there is free choice of seats on all open grandstands and free admission to the paddock for holders of a valid admission ticket (with Gold tickets, otherwise to be purchased on site). On Saturday and Sunday, the booked seats are valid.

How close can fans get?
The DTM has come up with something special for its penultimate station in Spielberg: the Public Grid Walk. Both on Saturday and Sunday fans with a paddock ticket will have access to the starting grid of the DTM, which will be extended from 15 to 40 minutes for this purpose. The access rights to the grid will be issued in the paddock – as long as stocks last.

As in previous years, there will also be the Pit Walk, i.e. the sightseeing tour through the pit lane. You can watch the DTM teams as well as the BOSS GP teams working on their racing cars. Saturday from 16:35 to 17:25, Sunday from 9:20 to 10:15.

Most of the BOSS GP teams will be in pits 24 to 32. As always, the BOSS GP drivers and teams will be happy to sign autographs and answer questions – friendly questions are usually sufficient.

Is there a livestream?
For the first time in the history of the BOSS GP there will be an official livestream. You can watch it either on the website www.bossgp.com, on the Facebook page (@bossgpofficial) or on the YouTube channel of the racing series.

BOSS GP Assen: Motorsport world come together

Free, but not for nothing: at GAMMA Racing Day Formula 1-star Carlos Sainz Jr., superbike ace Michael van der Mark and the BOSS GP meet – with free admission for race fans.

For several years now, GAMMA Racing Day has been attracting Dutch motorsport fans: every summer, the event at the TT Circuit in Assen offers a monster programme that is absolute unique. The mix of kart, motorcycle, touring cars and formula cars is nowhere else to be found. It is therefore hardly surprising that up to 100,000 fans make a visit to the north-east of the Netherlands.

Assen, a motorcycle circuit
The first Dutch Tourist Trophy (TT) for motorcycles took place in 1925, but still on public roads. It was not until 1955 that a race track was built specifically for this purpose, parts of the track however, were still open to public transport. The 7.7 km long track was completely renovated in 1984 and shortened to 6.1 km. In 1992 the current TT Circuit Assen was permanently separated from public transport for the first time. In 2006 there was another change to the layout: The track was shortened to 4.5 kilometres, and safety was significantly improved.

Assen is the only track worldwide where a Motorcycle World Championship race has been held every year since 1949. But Assen is also on the map when it comes to automotive sports: In the past, for example, the ChampCar World Series and the A1 GP started on the TT Circuit. The BOSS GP has also been back in Assen regularly since 2015, providing a mega show year after year. Record winner is the Austrian Ingo Gerstl (Top Speed), who won five out of the last six races.

Full grandstands are expected for the GAMMA Racing Day 2018

Other series in the line-up: Supercar Challenge, TCR Europe, Ford Fiesta Cup, historic sports and touring cars, FIA Superkart EC, FIM Sidecar World Championship, Yamaha R3 Cup.

Weekend for speed freaks: BOSS GP in Monza

Speed is not only a term here, but it can be felt – so is the danger. In the Royal Park of Monza, the BOSS GP is once again making a stop this weekend, in the best weather and with excellent food.

Third stop: through the park
The Big Open Single Seaters are coming after Hockenheim and Spielberg on another traditional race track: the Monza Eni Circuit, as the track has recently been called, was an uninterrupted part of the BOSS GP Series from 2011 to 2016. This year the track is back as headliner of the Peroni Race Weekend.

Autodromo Nazionale Monza: Temple of Speed
The 5.793-kilometre circuit in the Royal Park of Monza is one of the most impressive racing facilities in the world. It is one of the last high-speed tracks in the world and one of the most challenging tracks in Europe for drivers.

Located just 15 minutes by car northeast of Milan, it is located in the metropolitan area of Italy’s second largest city. Many drivers and fans combine their visit with an excursion to the city centre and to nearby Lake Garda.

The 688 hectare park (twice as large as Central Park in New York, by the way) has been the home of the Autodromo since 1922. After Brooklands and Indianapolis, the circuit was the only third permanent racetrack in history built specifically for motorsport. The steep curves of those days still exist today and are a popular visitor point.

Participants: BOSS GP
The unchallenged OPEN class leader Ingo Gerstl (Top Speed) will face competition from Rinus van Kalmthout. The 17-year-old Dutchman contests the Indy Lights series in the USA. In the Dallara-GP2, equipped with a Judd engine (8 cylinders, 4 litres displacement), he wants to collect more kilometers in a powerful racing car in Monza. Already last year he showed extraordinary performances. Wolfgang Jaksch will also be back. The German didn’t get his Super Aguri running at Hockenheim, but now everything is supposed to work for Monza. At the last second Hans Laub also announced a Formula 1 car for the OPEN. With the Forti FG 03 the German has a rare racer from 1996 under his butt.

11 Rinus van Kalmthout Mansell Motorsport NED Dallara GP2 Judd

26 Wolfgang Jaksch F Xtreme Racing Team DEU Super Aguri 06

12 starters are registered in the FORMULA class, among them some returners: Wolfgang Jordan and the two Italians David Moretti and Marco Ghiotto. For FORMULA leader Florian Schnitzenbaumer, Andreas Fiedler could be the most dangerous in the absence of Bianca Steiner, Johann Ledermair and Salvatore De Plano. Armando Mangini is the third Italian to compete in the home race.

Peroni has become the very heart of Italian motorsport. The bustling organisers of the Gruppo Peroni Race thus also attract a large number of spectators to the race track. Free admission during the three days of racing in Monza is a special offer. You can visit the paddock to get a rare insight into the work of the teams. There is a free choice of seats in the stands. If teams grant access, the boxes may also be viewed. The BOSS GP teams are in the garages with numbers 51 to 60, Andreas Fiedler (Dallara-GP2) pitched his tent in the paddock again, at the same level as the other BOSS GP teams in the paddock. Parking for motorcycles costs 5 Euro, for cars 10 Euro. Access is Viale Vedano 5 in Monza.

Other racing series on this race weekend are the German sports car series DMV GTC, the Northern European Formula Renault 2.0 and the Renault Clio Cup Italy. Historic cars compete in the Campionato Italiano Auto Storiche, the Alfa Revival Cup and the FIA Lurani Trophy for Formula Junior cars. All in all, a mix of jewellery from the recent and older motorsport past worth seeing.
