BOSS GP will start their 2017 season this weekend at Hockenheim.
Big Open Single Seater GP, which is the full name of the series, is a mix of single-seaters from all over the world.
In the Open Class we have the defending Champion Ingo Gerstl in his Toro Rosso STR1 Formula 1 car from 2006. His biggest competitor will most likely once again be Klass Zwart in a Jaguar R5 from 2004. These cars are from the time when Formula 1 had V10 engines, and therefore they have a fantastic sound. To further spice up the sound, we have Peter Milavec in a Panoz DP01 with a V8 from 2007, with a history in Champcar. Wolfgang Jaksch will race in a Super Aguri SA06 (year 2006), Bernd Herndlhofer in an Arrows A22 from 2001, while Phil Stratford arrives in a Benetton B197 from 1997.
The Formula Class are for other single-seaters. For the opening round at Hockenheim we have a mix of former AutoGP cars, GP2 cars and World Series by Renault. But there is also room for Superleague Formula and World Series by Nissan cars, but none of those cars will be present this time round.
Last year’s Champion in the Formula Class, Christopher Brenier, won’t participate in the opening round, but he has entered the series. It has been seen in previous years that you don’t necessarily need to participate at every round to be at the top of the championship.
The BOSS GP Championship 2017 will be run over seven weekends at iconic tracks like Hockenheim, Zandvoort, Paul Ricard, Zolder, Assen, Brno, and Imola.
The opening round at Hockenheim will have 17 cars in the BOSS GP series, but more than 500 cars will be present at the Hockenheim Historic, where there are Formula 1 cars from the 70’s, historic Formula 3 cars, Youngtimer cars, Lotus Cup Europe, Can-Am, and a lot of other cars.
