Good championship points for Mach1 in Wackersdorf

Shifter kart duo brings a lot of joy

The third race of the German Kart Championship brought Mach1 Motorsport to Wackersdorf. At the Pro Kart Raceland Wackersdorf, Rouven Wilk and Erik Müller put on a strong performance in the DKSC. Junior Maxi Eigner, on the other hand, was a little behind his usual performance.

Over 220 drivers provided a great backdrop at the race track in Upper Palatinate. The weather was mixed. On Saturday it was wet during qualifying, but the 1,197-meter-long course dried out afterwards and summer even returned on race Sunday.

The two protégés from the DMSB Shifter Kart Cup put on a great performance in qualifying. Rouven finished fourth, Erik followed in eighth. In the later heats they lost some ground, but kept up with the leaders. The Super Heat on Sunday morning was decisive. Erik finished in a strong eighth place, Rouven followed in tenth.

The duo were therefore within striking distance of the top ten and had thrilling battles in the final. In the end they finished one after the other in twelfth and thirteenth place. This meant that they finished one of the best weekends of the season in the points at halftime.

X30 Junior Maxi Eigner was a little disappointed after his performance in Wackersdorf. He fell short of his expectations with 19th place in qualifying with one lap too short on a drying track and due to race accidents and spoiler penalties was unable to fight his way forward significantly in the further course of the race. In the overall rankings he is still in a promising ninth place at halftime.

Team boss Ralf Wilk was very satisfied after the weekend: “We have continued to improve in the DSKC and have reached the top positions. This has already become clear in the last few weekends, and now we have implemented it with the corresponding results. For Maxi, on the other hand, things went the other way around. After his sixth place in Ampfing, things were not going to go well this time. We are now working on this and will be back strong in Kerpen. I would like to thank our engine and technology partners Zaddi Racing, TR Motorsport and SRP Engines again. The excellent support contributes to our success.”

The engines in the German Kart Championship will now be resting for five weeks. The race will then continue from July 19th to 21st at the Erftlandring in Kerpen.
