Race Interruption prevents Vaclav Safar’s victory (GT2 Motorsport)

At the final of the REMUS Formula Cup, there could have been a big surprise at the Masaryk Racing Days in the first race. The Czech Vaclav Safar (GT2 Motorsport) had dominated the qualifying session at his Formula 3 premiere in Brno with a 1.52.982 min and put the champion Sandro Zeller (Jo Zeller Racing) under pressure. The Swiss beat back in the starting duel and led the field in both, the REMUS Formula Cup and the FIA CEZ. In the run-up to the slower vehicles, Vaclav Safar overtook Zeller. Just at this time a Formula Renault blocked the road. This was the trigger for the red flag and race interruption. Zeller was the winner because of the score of the previous completed lap. Safar finished second in his Formula 3 debut ahead of Philipp Regensperger, who was 1,078 seconds behind the winner. Kurt Böhlen (Franz Wöss Racing) finished fourth, followed by Andrea Cola (Monolite Racing), who kept Marcel Tobler (Jo Zeller Racing) in check.
