After two years of reluctance, Mach1 Motorsport is back with a full package and would like to build on the successes of the past – the only German kart manufacturer is again relying on a cooperation with Kartschmie.de
“In 2023 we want to build on the successes of the pre-Corona period and have put together a great package,” says Martin Hetschel. In 2023, Mach1 Motorsport will also be running the works team’s operations together with Kartschmie.de. Frank Hansen (Kartschmie.de) acts as team manager and is responsible for the entire race organization (including driver coaching). Rouven Wilk from Mach1 will be responsible for the organization in the factory and on the racetrack as well as the technology/setup during the racing events. Martin Hetschel, on the other hand, focuses on the optimization and further development of the chassis on the racetrack and in the company. At the same time, Mach1 Motorsport is again working with personally selected and highly qualified mechanics and engine tuners. Participation in the German Kart Championship (mainly in the KZ2 class), the ADAC Kart Masters and selected events as part of the CIK/FIA is planned, including the highlight of the season – the Kart World Championship in Wackersdorf.
The well-known Mach1 racing truck is used at the international races of the DKM and the CIK World Championships. This gives drivers and mechanics the freedom they need to deliver top performance. In order to ensure optimal support and development for the drivers, Mach1 Motorsport offers an extensive package at a flat rate. This includes, among other things, qualified technical support (experienced factory mechanic), factory material and tuning parts, catering, preparation and follow-up as well as driver training/data analysis.
“Our focus is on supporting our drivers in the best possible way. In addition to a good chassis, it is also important to have a strong engine. That’s why we’re working with an experienced tuner again in 2023. The engines are made available, serviced and adjusted by him during the race weekends,” explains Hetschel and continues, “if desired, our own training engines can be used, which can be serviced by our engine partner for an extra charge.”
As a team, Mach1 Motorsport has always strived to be one step ahead off the track – the races are accompanied by an extensive press service in German and English. There is also timely reporting on the Mach1 Motorsport social media channels (www.facebook.com/Mach1Motorsport and www.facebook.com/mach1kart).
Several drivers have already been secured for the 2023 season. Intensive negotiations are already underway with other drivers. Mach1 Motorsport also expects great interest in the KZ2 Masters World Championship in Wackersdorf and the preparatory race “Road to Wackersdorf”.
