Voutaz and Simonet in FEI World Cup™ Driving

After it was announced last week that Michael Brauchle has withdrawn from the FEI World Cup™ Driving, the news came out today, that Christoph Sandmann will also not compete in the World Cup this indoor season. The numbers 11 and 12 of the FEI World Cup™ Driving Standings, Jérôme Voutaz from Switzerland and Edouard Simonet from Belgium have now received the invitation to compete in the FEI World Cup™ Driving Series 2016/2017.

Both drivers got injured at the end of the season; Simonet in Breda and Voutaz in Donaueschingen, but they will both be recovered before their first start.

For Voutaz it will be his second World Cup season. Edouard Simonet is now part of the Series for the first time in his career. He was invited to compete with a Wild Card in Mechelen 2015 where he performed very well and finished on the 4th place.
