German Chassis manufacturer Mach1 Kart has used the short winter break wisely and is now able to present numerous improvements right on time for the start of the season. The team will be starting at all well-respected international and national racing series.
The year 2012 already was a special one for Mach1 Kart: with a new look, the traditional manufacturer managed to climb back to the top and secured the KF2 overall victory at the ADAC Kart Masters and the vice Championship title in the drivers- and team-ranking at the German Kart Championship. Thus, the Mach1 team belonged to the most successful teams in Germany and knew how to impress with their product “made in Germany”.
But the team surrounding team leader Martin Hetschel has not been taking a rest. During the past couple of months, the established Chassis-series FIA9 has been enhanced rapidly. The new Chassis come with a modified frame geometry, which offers a steadier drivability and responds to altered track circumstances more tolerantly. Additionally, there are two different frame severities. The model FIA9 A04 (Codename Asiatic Bear) is comparable to the 2012 version and ideal for the senior class. The FIA9 B04 version (Codename Angel Shark) is a new one: due to a softer crossbar, the Chassis is ideal for juniors or high grip conditions.
There is also a new technically and optically enhanced front-wheel hub with spoke wheel centers in two different lengths (Art. 2182 75mm und Art. 2183 95mm) for all models, as well as three different steering wheel diameters of the Mach1- Flattop-steering wheel: 320mm and 345mm for the FIA9 Karts, 300mm for the “Bambini”- and “Mini”-categories. The color of the frame is completely new. Fitting to the innovative glue set, the new models will be delivered in matt arctic white with fine structure.
The team will be starting at various top series: Mach1 Kart and their new race truck will be present at the CIK-FIA European Kart Championship, the WSK Euro Series, the German Kart Championship and the ADAC Kart Masters. Aside from the regular drivers, there are still free spots available. Interested drivers can call Martin Hetschel directly or are very welcome to visit the manufacturer at the international Kart trade fair in Offenbach on the Main in the atrium (A2A1-07) next weekend.
