The second race weekend of the Maxx Formula Racing Series at the Hockenheimring/DE ended with a double victory in the overall standings for Christopher Brenier (Panoz DP09B Champcar) in Race 1 and Race 2. Brenier snatched the supposedly safe victory from under the nose of Klaas Zwart in the Jaguar F1 after Zwart had to pit in during the race due to engine problems. After a brilliant race to catch up, Zwart still managed to finish second overall in race 1.

The weekend was overshadowed by the crash of Phil Stratford in the Benetton F1. In free practice, the US American hit the wall in front of the Mercedes grandstand at over 200 km/h with virtually no brakes. Not much was left of the ever-popular Benetton F1. Apart from minor injuries to Phil Stratford's leg, he miraculously remained virtually unharmed. We wish Phil a speedy recovery and hope to see him back on the grid soon.

Thomas Zeltner made a good debut with his GP2 after his starting accident in Monza. Zeltner nailed P3 in Race 1, which gave him a spot on the podium. „It was a fun weekend and i was happy to being able to get the podium yesterday especially after the heavy crash in Monza. So, the entire weekend we`re just focusing on getting back confidence in the car, trust the breaks, the throttle and the downforce and all worked out pretty well. I´m super happy with P3 yesterday. It was mega!“ said the Swiss Zeltner.



In the Masters Class, Belgian Frank Thomas secured the class win in the first race. In the second heat, Stephan Glaser of Jo Zeller Racing won, gathering valuable points for the championship.
