Mach1 Motorsport just experienced an exciting weekend. The racing team of the German chassis manufacturer started with nine drivers at the fourth event of the German Kart Championship in
Wackersdorf. The traditional brand’s protégés thereby showed great performances among the international and strongly manned fields of participants. Julian Müller took the overall lead of the DMSB Shifterkart Cup after a top performance.
The organizers of the German Kart Championship saw a full house in Bavarian Wackersdorf last weekend. For the second time this season, the high-class German racing series took place at the
Prokart Raceland and received a lot of positive feedback. 152 national and international drivers started two weeks before the CIK-FIA Kart World Championship on the same track and offered a lot to the numerous spectators.
As the youngest driver of the team, Julien-Noel Rehberg used the races of the German Junior Kart Championship to gain further experience on international terrain. As 37 th driver at qualifying, the
youngster just barely missed entering the final races by ending up on 35 th place at the heats.
At the seniors, four drivers started with Mach1 Motorsport. David Liwinski really called attention to himself due to a great performance. As 17th driver he was in midfield of the top class after qualifying,then really gave it his all during the races and raced forward. From twelfth place at the first race, the young driver drove forward to sixth place during the second race and just barely missed the cup ranks.
Team mate Cameron Boedler also impressed with a great catching-up race. On the good 10th place after the heats, he had a falling out during the first race due to an accident. The German-Brazilian wasn’t deterred by this though and drove past his opponents during the second race due to clever maneuvers and finally came in 15th.
Luka Wlömer showed a great upwards trend as well. After he came in 29th during the first race, the youngster proved his fighting spirit during the second race and ended up on 19th place despite a time
Marcel Weber showed a solid performance as the fourth driver of the team and came in 27th and 25th respectively.
Daniel Stell was on a level playing field with the international top drivers at the German Shifterkart Championship. He was the third fastest driver at qualifying and thereby called attention to him for
the first time. He then tied in with his success during the heats by coming in sixth and third. The first race went according to plan by coming in sixth as well. As the best German driver he was very close
to the top five. Daniel showed thrilling duels during the second race as well. Unfortunately he was involuntarily stopped due to an accident though and had to end the race prematurely.
Marcel Schultheiß also started at the DSKM. Mixed heats prevented him from entering the final races though.
Julian Müller experienced a perfect weekend at the DMSB Shifterkart Cup. The young driver showed his top form that has been continuing throughout the season in Wackersdorf as well and didn’t give his opponents any chances during the races. After a mixed Saturday, Julian started into the first race from third place and took the lead early on. Until the end of the race this didn’t change and Müller celebrated his victory. He didn’t let anyway take it away from him during the second race as well. He took the lead on the overall list of rankings due to his double victory and is now one of the big title favorites.
Team mate Tim Schröder drove among midfield of the championship and missed the point ranks narrowly by coming in 17th at the second race.
„It was a good weekend for us. Even though we had lots of bad luck – especially regarding Daniel’s falling out – we were able to show a good performance today. Julian highlighted our efficiency at the
DSKC and showed that we are also really fast with track conditions on a high international level. We want to tie in with this in two weeks at the World Championship. We want to cause a surprise with
our drivers in front of a native audience”, said team leader Martin Hetschel contently.
