In the wake of surviving a death-defying shunt, Sophia Flörsch has announced she will contest the 2019 Formula European Masters season, the new young-gun series that exclusively will be held in the support programme of all the nine DTM race meetings.

Recently video images of Flörsch’s high-speed crash shocked the motor racing world during the Formula 3 World Finale in Macau – but due to the high safety standards of the Formula 3 cars that also will be used in the 2019 Formula European Masters she got off relatively lightly.

The 18-year old from Munich already contested a part of the 2018 Formula 3 European Championship. “I am convinced that the Formula European Masters is the perfect race series for me,” she said.

“The car is optimal. It offers young drivers the opportunity to learn an incredible lot. This is demonstrated by history. After all, countless racing drivers learned their trade in these cars and their predecessors to make it to the top categories of motor racing, afterwards. And the DTM environment is fantastic! I love to keep on competing for Van Amersfoort Racing as I feel really comfortable in the team.”

“If my rehabilitation runs as planned and I won’t enter the season wlate, it’s my goal to regularly make it to the top five and secure a win, every now and then,” Flörsch added with a lot of self-confidence.
