Formula 4. A big challenge for the two BWT Mücke Motorsport rookies Nico Göhler and Joshua Dürksen. The race weekend on the traditional course was an ups and downs for the two pilots and the racing team. On the one hand, Dürksen finished seventh in the second race and clinched his first rookie victory in the ADAC Formula 4. On the other hand, further points were not enough for the two young drivers.

The free practice sessions used the duo to get used to the course again. The results were – as usual at training sessions – not in the foreground. In the two qualifying sessions, Dürksen delivered a solid performance, securing runner-up seventh on race one and the tenth starting position on second. Teammate Göhler qualified for both races on the (************************************************************************************). Rank.


It was dry before the first race, but it started to rain slightly before the formation lap. The pilots nevertheless started on dry tires. In the starting phase Dürksen quickly made up ground, but had to take the third turn wide and turned. That passage was also fatal to experienced pilots in the ADAC GT Masters. Dürksen skilfully intercepted his car but fell back in the field. In the end, the Paraguayan improved to eleventh place, teammate Goehler was 14.

The German did his first appearance at the Nürburgring something difficult. In the second run it was only enough for him (****************************************************************************************************). “I'm not so happy with my performance this weekend. I have made some mistakes, but still managed to get there. The most important thing for me is to learn from it and implement it for the next race weekends “, summarizes Göhler. For teammate Dürksen, however, the second run meant a liberation. The 15 – yearlings made up three places in the race and finished seventh. Thus he celebrated his first victory in the rookie classification of the ADAC Formula 4 and he also secured for the third race because of the “Reverse Grid” rule starting position two.

Before the third race the sky poured over the 3, (*****************************************************************************) Sprint variant of the Nürburgring and the start took place behind the safety car. When it had turned away, Dürksen kept for a long time in the top three and put pressure on one of the much experienced pilots in front of him. The courageous drive was not enough at the end. Dürksen braked in a curve, came off the track and had to finish the race. The difficult conditions also had to pay tribute to other pilots, but Göhler did well and improved on the (*******************************************************************************************). Position.

For BWT Mücke Motorsport, the ADAC Formula 4 will have a slightly longer break. But already at the beginning of September it's about (********************************************************************************************). 08. to 01. 09. continue in Imola as part of the Formula 4 Italian Championship.

Frank Lucke (Team Leader Formula 4): “Last weekend we had typical Eifel weather, which certainly took some getting used to for our two rookies. But it's also important for the two in their first year of formula racing. Both Nico and Joshua have not been upset by the changeable weather. Unfortunately, the results do not reflect the performance of our two rookies and the entire team. We clearly hoped for more. A bit more experience, a bit more luck and you are already several positions ahead. Joshua has definitely created the highlight with his rookie victory. He was also on the podium. That sometime the road goes out, if you push lap after lap, even the most experienced pilot happens. ”
