Charlie Wurz and Josh Dufek join the Euroformula with CryptoTower


CryptoTower Racing Team today announced two great additions to the Euroformula Open grid as from the next round this weekend at the Red Bull Ring: Charlie Wurz and Joshua Dufek.

Both the Austrian, who will make his EFO debut on home soil, and the Swiss are switching to the Euroformula from FRECA and are confirmed for the remainder of the season.  

Monaco-born Charlie Wurz (17) is the son of former F.1 star and double Le Mans winner Alex Wurz, and has enjoyed success in F.4 in Europe, the UAE, where he was a double champion (2022-21) and Oceania (2023 Champion).

London-born Joshua Dufek (17), who races under Swiss licence, has also a successful F.4 career under his belt before upgrading to F.Regional in Asia, the Middle East and Europe, in 2022.

Wurz declared: “I’m excited by this switch to EuroFormula and a faster, lighter, more agile car. I can’t wait to get on track with CryptoTower and thank Timo for the opportunity.”

Dufek stated: “I’m extremely happy to be joining CryptoTower for the remaining rounds of Euroformula Open and am eager to be hitting the track in just a few days! The team has proven themselves to be constantly very competitive and it’ll be good to learn from them as well as show them what I can do and hopefully bring home some silverware in the process!”

Timo Rumpfkeil, on behalf of CryptoTower, commented: “I am very happy to welcome two exiting talents to the team! Both of them are proven race winners and have great careers ahead of them. The deals came together as a rather late call, so we are trying our outmost to allow them a seamless transition into the Dallara 320 Spiess and the ins and outs of the Euroformula Open. I am confident that both of them will score very strong results with our team!”
