ADAC Kart Masters podium for Mach1 Motorsport

Competitive in all classes

The success series of Mach1 Motorsport does not let up. Last weekend, the racing team of the German kart manufacturer competed with four drivers in the second round of the ADAC Kart Masters in Mülsen and impressed across the board. With Tim Tröger and Tom Kalender, the team led by Martin Hetschel secured themselves two podium placements in Germany’s strongest car separation series. In the end, even more would have been possible.

Last weekend, with the second run of the ADAC Kart Masters in Mülsen, the race premiere of the nationwide racing series was waiting on the new kart track near Zwickau. On the 1,315 meter long track, 145 riders fought for important points for the half-time race of the national ADAC racing circus. Under best kart sport conditions, the team attacked with four fosterlings in four categories. 

Tom Kalender was quickly on the move at the OK Juniors. In qualifying, the youngster was already sixth in the top group and knew how to prove himself there from then on. In the preliminary rounds, Tom stuck to his performance and finally went into Sunday’s final races as a great fourth. In the first race, the Mach1 driver improved to third place. With race best time, the young driver finally confirmed his ambitions in the second round and again ranked himself as a strong third. 

Erik Müller represented the Mach1 Motorsport colours at the X30 Seniors. In qualifying still in the front midfield, the young racer was involved in a serious accident throughout the course of the race and unfortunately could not participate during the rest of the weekend. 

At the OK, Niels Tröger drove the fifth fastest lap in qualifying and thus secured a good starting position for the preliminary rounds. The driver from Saxony knew how to make the most of this and improved to third place in the intermediate ranking with two good heats. In the first scoring run, he led the field at the beginning, but shortly before the end the youngster had to cope with a severe setback and fell out prematurely with a torn chain. From the end of the field, however, Niels started a phenomenal catch-up chase and finally scraped just past the cup ranks in seventh place. 

Tim Tröger represented Mach1 Motorsport with flying colors at the shift karts. In qualifying, the Plauener already pricked ears being placed fourth. In the preliminaries, everything went according to plan of the KZ2 pilot. Position two and four ultimately resulted in third place for the final rounds on Sunday. In the first race, Tim again ranked fourth among the top drivers in the category before he even made the jump to the podium in the second race as a great third. 

“Our Mülsen premiere presented us with great challenges, which we have mastered very well as a team. Our material has proven its competitiveness on the track once again. With the shift karts as well as the OK we had absolutely victorious speed. We wish Erik a good recovery after his accident and hope that he will be able to start again as soon as possible,” head of the team Martin Hetschel commented on the events of the weekend. 

Already next weekend, the Mach1 kart racing team is on the road again. Then, the second run of the German Kart Championship in Wackersdorf, Bavaria, is on the agenda of the traditional German manufacturer. 

Mach1 Motorsport on ADAC Kart Masters podium

German kart manufacturer on top course

The race team of the German kart manufacturer Mach1 Kart went to the Erftlandring in Kerpen last weekend with six riders in their luggage.  The 1,107-meter-long track was the venue for the opening race of the ADAC Kart Masters. In heavily filled driver’s fields, the Mach1 fosterlings asserted themselves with flying colors. Julian Müller even secured third place in the shifter kart classification of Germany’s strongest kart series.

The Corona-related wait has finally come to an end this last weekend. The invitation to the season opener of the national ADAC Kart Masters was followed by a total of 176 riders to the traditional route to North Rhine-Westphalia. In exciting duels under changing conditions, the fight for the first championship points of the season began, in which Mach1 Motorsport and its drivers had a clear say.

Erik Müller started as a soloist with the X30 seniors and ranked after the heats on a solid 13th place. From there, the youngster started the first race and even worked his way up 8th place towards the middle of the race but lost in scrimmages and fell back to 24th place. A failure in the second round ended his catch-up chase prematurely because of a technical defect. 

Niels Tröger was one of the top pilots in the OK. In the time training still twelfth, the Großfriesener native already turned up strongly in the preliminary rounds. In the intermediate ranking, Niels improved to fourth place before going even further ahead in the first round. In second place, the Mach1 Motorsport fosterling missed out on victory by a hair’s breadth. With sixth place in the second race, Niels finally rounded off his great performance.

Julian Müller held up the Mach1 Motorsport flags at the shifter karts. Placed fourth in the time training, the Cologne native already underlined his skills and from then on consistently stayed in the top ten. Unfortunately, a technical defect in the second heat threw him far back at the start that he slipped to ninth place in the intermediate classification. In the first final, the routinian passed his opponents round by round and ranked fourth. In the second run Julian finally improved again and was waved off in the end as a great third. Tim Tröger was even ahead of his team-mate being ranked in fifth place after the preliminary rounds. In the first race, the shift kart rookie lost positions and fell back to16th place, but then started a great catch-up chase up to ninth place in the second round.

For Paul Voegeding, the weekend started all the way to plan. After impressive preliminary rounds, the Mach1 kart driver was ranked fourth place for the first final, which he finished with an excellent third place. But then the shock: A disqualification due to too small burn space volume threw the fast racer back to the end of the field. The subsequent analysis of the situation revealed a significant deviation of the measurement methods,which is why even the technicians of the ADAC doubted the correctness of the measurement afterwards and Paul was allowed to start in the second final without any changes with a technically correct engine. For legal reasons, however, the DQ was not withdrawn, which was disappointing athletically for the engine tuner, team and driver and in no way comprehensible.

Nevertheless, Paul gave everything again and managed to move up to 18th place in the second race. Tobias Sjögren experienced a weekend of ups and downs. After finishing 18th in the first race, the Swede had to give up early in the second race due to failure.

“We did well this weekend. We have been on the road at a winning speed with both the OK and the shifter karts and have shown the potential of our material. The Mach1 Factory Supported Team DS Kartsport with its riders Mika Nelles in the KZ, Niklas Hirsch and Tom Kalender also convinced at the Mini and OK juniors and confirmed our possibilities,” team leader Martin Hetschel summed up the ADAC Kart Masters kick-off in the evening.

Already next weekend Mach1 Motorsport will go back to the Erftlandring. The German Kart Championship celebrates its season opener on the traditional track in Kerpen. The traditional German manufacturer wants to be in the forefront of the four predicates once again. 

Titles, victories and trophies for Mach1 Kart

Successful final of the ADAC Kart Masters in Wackersdorf

The last races of the ADAC Kart Masters started last weekend in the Prokart Raceland Wackersdorf. 156 participants took part in the race and fought another thrilling fight at the end. Also, with some Mach1-kart-drivers started and caused a lot of cheers.

At the end of the national kart race series of the ADAC, the fields in the classes were once again top-class and the spectators in the Prokart Raceland Wackersdorf got to see great karting. This was also ensured by the Mach1-kart-pilots. Especially in the Bambini class it was close as always. In part, a group of ten fought for victory. The three fosterlings of the Mach1 supported team DS Kartsport achieved great successes. Tom Kalender finished the year as champion of the Bambini class and again collected leadership kilometers in Wackersdorf. The same was true for his team-mates Luca Schwab and Ben Godenau. In the end, Schwab won the last race of the year.

At the OK Juniors, Linus Hensen from Team Kartschmie.de celebrated his premiere in the ADAC Kart Masters and caused a sensation in the competition. The youngster drove with his Mach1-kart throughout in the top field and finished the final being placed third and fifth in the cup rankings.

The same was true of Niels Tröger. After his victory in the ADAC Kart Cup a few weeks ago, he was now fighting for a top ranking in the overall classification of the ADAC Kart Masters. He quickly got used to the, for him new, Mach1-kart and finished second in Sunday’s final. In the championship it was enough to finish in fourth place.

Three riders faced the competition in the X30 seniors and after the first final on Sunday the mood was excellent. Erik Müller finished tenth, while the two fosterlings of DS Kartsport Alexander Heil and Lion Düker finished ninth and 12th. Dücker defended his twelfth place in the second race, but his two teammates had to cope with a failure.

In the manual kart class KZ2 Tim Tröger used the race to prepare for the DSKC in Ampfing next weekend. The Saxon driver prevailed strongly against his opponents and finished third in the first race with the fastest lap. Due to a poor start, he fell behind at the start of the second final but worked his way back to ninth place. Manual kart rookie Mika Nelles from DS Kartsport also impressed with a 13th and 16th place, landing twice in the points standings.

Mach1-kart-owner Martin Hetschel was very pleased with the results of his brand: “You can only be satisfied with the results. We have been successful in all classes, whether Bambini, X30, OK or manual kart, underlining the good performance of our chassis. I congratulate everyone on their success and thank them for their trust in our product.”

The final of the German Kart Championship in Ampfing will continue in just a few days. Mach1-kart-drivers will be back at the start and will fight for the remaining championship points.

Mach1 Motorsport sweeps the board in Kerpen

Mach1 Motorsport sweeps the board in Kerpen – Julian Müller achieves overall lead at the shifterkarts

Last weekend, the fourth of five events of the ADAC Kart Masters took place in Kerpen. Mach1 Motorsport celebrated huge successes in extreme heat. At the same time, victories also went to the factory supported team DS Kartsport. The team is currently leading the championship of the shifterkarts with Julian Müller.

Three weeks after the half-time race of the national racing series of the ADAC in Oschersleben, the drivers of the ADAC Kart Masters started again. This time, things took place on the 1.107m long Erftlandring in Kerpen. In midsummery temperatures, 180 participants started there. Mach1 Motorsport started with four drivers. The OK-class was hard-fought this time. 34 drivers made for a filled-up field of participants and exciting races.

Tim Tröger belonged to the favorites from the beginning. The Saxon won the last race in Oschersleben and drove among the front field in Kerpen as well. After qualifying and the following heats he was on third place and was on his way to victory at the first final race. A later spoiler penalty made him fall back to fourth place though. He then held this position during the second final race and thereby collected important points. He still has chances of winning the championship after these successes.

Next to Tröger, David Liwinski from Poland used the race as preparation for the upcoming German Kart Championship, which is going to take place in the same location next weekend. He already did well during qualifying by coming in tenth and achieved this position at the first final race as well. Unfortunately, his good performance at the second final race was stopped due to a falling out.

At the X30 seniors, Erik Müller continued his learning process. In his first ADAC Kart Masters season, he already showed his ambitions in Oschersleben. This time, he came in close to midfield in both races – on 20th and 22nd places.

Shifterkart driver Julian Müller presented a great show. On his home track, the Cologne resident was able to fully attack and achieved two victories on Saturday. Things got exciting again during the final races then – temporarily three drivers exchanged blows and made things thrilling. In the end, Julian achieved a victory and a second place and thereby took the overall lead of the championship.

Team leader Martin Hetschel was more than content in the evening: “We’re in the race for the titles in two different classes right before the final. That’s a great achievement and proves the potential of our material. Julian and Tim did really well in these conditions. Our factory supported team DS Kartsport also highlighted the quality of our products due to victories at the Bambini class and the shifterkarts.”

The team is going to travel to Kerpen again in a couple of days – this time for the German Kart Championship. Filled-up fields of participants and high temperatures can be expected there as well.

Mach1 Motorsport wins in Oschersleben

Mach1 Motorsport wins in Oschersleben – Tim Tröger among the cup ranks twice

Huge joy for the German chassis manufacturer Mach1 Kart: At the half-time race of the ADAC Kart Masters in Oschersleben, OK-driver Tim Tröger achieved his first victory for Mach1 Motorsport and is on the strong second place of the championship. His team mate Erik Müller did well at the X30 seniors too.

The hard work of the past weeks is now paying off. Almost 150 participants started at the ADAC Kart Masters in Oschersleben last weekend and Mach1 Kart belonged to the favorites at the OK-class right away. Tim Tröger felt comfortable in beaming sunshine and made a first impression at qualifying by coming in third. He then achieved a victory at the following heats and was on second place of the interim rankings.

The two final races on Sunday were heated. The field was strongly manned with 33 drivers and Tim was always among the top ten places. During the first race, he fell back to fourth place and then fully attacked once more during the last race of the day. At the beginning of the race, Tim immediately took the lead and was unstoppable until the end of the race. Afterwards he was very happy about his first victory for his new team: “It’s a great feeling to be on top of the podium again. We’ve been competitive from the beginning and were able to build on this. I’d like to tie in with this at the next races.”

Tröger’s team mate Erik Müller was successful at the X30 seniors as well. During his first ADAC Kart Masters season he is getting faster and faster race by race and was on the great eighth place after the heats. He used this good starting position during the final races. The driver from East Westphalia fought thrilling duels with his competition among the front midfield and drove forward to seventh place – thereby he just barely missed placing among the cup ranks. The second race went turbulently: He unfortunately lost some ground this time and came in 15th.

It was a successful weekend in Oschersleben for team leader Martin Hetschel: “I’m very content and happy about Tim’s victory. The competition was strong but we’ve invested a lot of work during the past weeks and are now seeing great results – we’re building on this. Erik presented himself in great shape as well. I’d also like to thank our factory supported team DS Kartsport for their hospitality this weekend.”

Mach1 Motorsport is going to continue in three weeks with the next event of the ADAC Kart Masters – on the Erftlandring in Kerpen this time.

ADAC Kart Masters lead

ADAC Kart Masters lead for Mach1 Motorsport – Top placements at the kick-off in Ampfing

A nearly perfect racing weekend now lies behind the team of Mach1 Motorsport. The racing department of the German chassis manufacturer travelled to the kick-off event of the ADAC Kart Masters on the Schweppermannring in Ampfing. In the end, Mach1-Kart drove back home with two racing victories and the overall championship lead in the KZ2 class.

Last weekend, the eleventh season of the ADAC Kart Masters started in Bavarian Ampfing. For the beginning of the season, the national racing series took place on the southernmost track of this year’s calendar. 144 drivers started overall. Mach1 Motorsport concentrated on the OK, KZ2 and X30 senior categories.

Erik Müller broke new ground at the ADAC Kart Masters: He came from clubsport and now entered the national racing series. The youngster ended up behind his own expectations during qualifying by ending up on 26th place. Erik also got stuck in the far midfield during the heats. The Mach1 driver then hit the ground running during the first race. Due to great maneuvers, the young kart driver overtook his opponents and finally came in 17th. Erik unfortunately had to deal with a technical falling out at the second race then.

Team-newbie Tim Tröger started in the OK class with high hopes. After a falling out during the heats the mood was a little gloomy though. The Saxon didn’t get distracted by this though: From 19th place, the youngster raced through the field and drove his way forward to seventh place until crossing the finish line. That wasn’t enough yet: During the second ranked race, Tim improved his performance even more and finished the last race right behind the winner on second place.

David Liwinski drove among the front field of the OK class as well and caused joy in the team tent. From seventh place, the Dutchman crossed the finish lines of the races on fifth and fourth places respectively and thereby ended up among the highly competitive cup ranks twice.

Things went considerably heated for Mach1 Motorsport at the shifterkarts. Daniel Stell celebrated a phenomenal start into the weekend. After the fastest lap time during qualifying, the Hammelburg resident drove at the front of the field during the heats as well. During the first race he had to deal with a falling out due to a technical defect though. This did not lessen his fighting spirit though. With best times, the routine driver raced forward from the back of the field to sixth place at the second race and the lead during the third race and thereby perfected his performance.

Julian Müller also showed a top performance. The Cologne resident was always among the top positions of the class. On third place after the heats, the KZ2 driver ended up on the good fifth place at the first race. During the second race Julian took his chance and gained the lead. The ambitious driver raced across the finish line as the winner and even achieved to take the championship lead by coming in second at the third ranked race.

Team leader Martin Hetschel was very content with the weekend: “Things couldn’t have gone much better during these past two days. We were very successful in two categories. Tim had chances of winning the second OK race – our speed was definitely right. With the lead at the shifterkarts and third championship position in the OK class, we’re now looking forward highly motivated. I’d really like to praise DS Kartsport too: The team showed an impressive performance at the Bambini and stood on the winners’ podium with two drivers.”

Things are getting serious again for Mach1 Motorsport in only a couple of days. From April 13th – 15th, the German Kart Championship is going to start into its new season in Italian Lonato. The fast Germans want to drive among the forefront on the South Garda Karting Circuit as well.

Mach1 Motorsport with strong finish at the ADAC Kart Masters – David Liwinski in top form at the OK category

The German kart manufacturer Mach1 kart sent five drivers to the finale of the ADAC Kart Masters in Wackersdorf. The team showed a great performance, but lost a safe spot on the podium at the OK class in the end. The weekend was topped off by test drives in the new electric kart.

Last weekend everything was new for two drivers. Daniel Stell and Cameron Boedler changed their places. Stell, who ended the shifterkart world championship on the strong seventh place a couple of weeks ago, drove as a guest in the direct drive OK class. The
Bavarian quickly found his usual rhythm and came close to the leading drivers. At the first final race he came in on the strong eleventh place and had best chances to get even further during the second race. Unfortunately he was stopped due to a falling out.

Cameron Boedler had his debut at the shifterkart class KZ2. After 11th place at qualifying, he finished the heats on 13th place and then fought his way forward during the first final race to a good 12th place. Unfortunately the second final race ended prematurely for him too.

In addition to the duo, David Liwinski, Luka Wlömer and Marcel Weber also started at the Prokart Raceland. Liwinski showed an impressive performance. The Dutchman was unstoppable in the OK-class. He already proved his ambitions by gaining fifth starting position after qualifying and finished the heats on the fourth places respectively. He additionally achieved the fastest racing lap. During the first final race he was on his way to the top three, before he had to drop out early. From the end of the field consisting of 27 drivers he then fought his way forward during the second race and showed his potential by coming in 10th. “David has impressed us very much this weekend. The falling out during the first final race was very annoying, because he would’ve been able to win due to his speed”,
said team leader Martin Hetschel in the evening.

His two team mates showed a good development as well. After a cautious Saturday, Wlömer crossed the finish line on 18th and 19th places at the final races. Marcel Weber was in his wind shadow.

Within the framework of the event, Mach1 kart presented the newly developed electric kart with Bosch. Numerous drivers and everyone interested had the opportunity to get an idea of the new technology. “I’m very proud that we’re bringing this concept to the race track in
cooperation with Bosch. The performance of the electric engines is overwhelming. Currently we’re working on initiating the first electric kart racing series in the near future”, Hetschel gave a small outlook.

The team is going to continue in two weeks. Then, Mach1 Motorsport is going to start at the IAME International Finals in Le Mans, France. Only a week later the finale of the German Kart Championship is going to take place in Italian Lonato.

Shifterkart-double victory for Mach1 Motorsport – Strong performance at the ADAC Kart Masters in Wackersdorf

Mach1 Motorsport just experienced an eventful weekend. The racing division of the German chassis manufacturer started at the second event of the ADAC Kart Masters with five drivers and experienced an exciting event. In the end, Daniel Stell caused a lot of joy due to a double victory at the shifterkarts.

Last weekend Mach1 Motorsport wanted to attack. The team surrounding Martin Hetschel travelled to the Prokart Raceland with five drivers. All in all, 166 drivers started at one of the most modern kart racing tracks of Europe to give it their all at the ranked races three and four in beaming sunshine and midsummery temperatures.

The youngest drivers started at the Bambini class. Mach1-protégé Sondre Norheim started there as well. The Norwegian drove among midfield despite the considerably less experience he had on the track compared to most of his opponents and started into the first ranked race from 20th position. He then lost some positions during the race, but was able to fight his way forward to 19th place during the second race and thereby achieved entering the top 20.

Also from Norway, Harvard Hallerud started at the X30 seniors. After a successful Wackersdorf-debut last year with fifth place at the finale, things didn’t go according to plan for the Scandinavian this time. After the heats Harvard was on 18th place of the interim rankings. Among the strongly contested midfield he was involved in a collision though and had to end the race prematurely. From the back of the field he then was able to show his possibilities during the second race and caught up to the top ten. Unfortunately a 5-seconds-penalty threw him back to 18th place in the end.

Marcel Weber started at the OK seniors as a soloist and had to deal with engine problems throughout the entire weekend. From 23rd place at qualifying the rookie then improved to 17th starting position for the final races. But he wasn’t able to get further than 24th and 21st places in the end.

Daniel Stell and Julian Müller started at the shifterkarts. Daniel showed a perfect performance at his guest appearance at the ADAC Kart Masters. The Hammelburg resident already did a great job during qualifying and led the list of rankings. The routine driver then secured pole position for the first ranked race by achieving first and second places at the heats. Daniel did great there too, entered the race with a perfect start and celebrated a grand start-finish- victory in the end. At the second race things went similarly: Daniel won again.

Julian Müller started into a horrible weekend initially. Two fallings out during the heats threw the ambitious driver to the end of the interim rankings. He wasn’t intimidated by this though. Julian showed his talent during the ranked races and drove two impressive races. The first catching-up race ended with the crossing of the finish line on ninth place. At the second race, he just barely missed placing among the cup ranks by coming in seventh.

In the evening Martin Hetschel praised his drivers’ performances: “I think nothing can be added to Daniel’s performance. He was excellent throughout the entire weekend and highlighted our potential. Julian would have been a top five driver without the problems on Saturday as well. Our two Norwegians were able to gather lots of racing experiences again. Marcel unfortunately had some bad luck. We fought with his engine’s performance from the beginning.”

Mach1-karts are going to start in Wackersdorf again next weekend. The second race of the Rotax Max Challenge Germany is going to take place then. The factory team is going to continue things at the German Kart Championship in three weeks.

Mach1 Motorsport wins in Ampfing – Successful performance at the shifterkarts

The Mach1 Motorsport team celebrated a successful ADAC Kart Masters kick-off. The German chassis manufacturer’s team started with five drivers in Ampfing last weekend and was able to impress throughout the event. The Mach1 drivers especially highlighted their potential at the shifterkarts – Daniel Stell was among the fastest drivers and secured a race victory in the top-class category.

Things got serious for 165 drivers on the last weekend of April in Bavarian Ampfing. The ADAC Kart Masters invited everyone to the season kick-off on the challenging Schweppermannring and spectacularly started into its tenth year. After frosty temperatures and snow at the beginning of the event, the weather gods meant well on the racing day. Best spring weather made for optimal conditions and thrilling kart racing action.

As the youngest of the team, Sondre Norheim started at the Bambini class. The Norwegian initially didn’t find the right rhythm fast enough and only came in 24th at qualifying. Despite a falling out during one of the heats, the youngster was on the 21st place in the interim standings and from there was able to drive forward to 16th position during the second final race.

David Liwinski showed a solid performance at the X30 seniors. After 13th place at qualifying, the Mach1 protégé established himself in midfield and finally came in 13th and 15th at the final races respectively.

Things went especially well at the shifterkarts. The Mach1 Motorsport team sent an experienced driver, Daniel Stell, into the race and celebrated a great deuce. From second starting position, he won both heats and was therefore on first place in the interim standings. During the second race, the Hammelburg resident came in 2nd with the best time of the race and then increased his performance even more. During the second race, Daniel gave it his all, took the lead and came in as the beaming winner in the end.

Julian Müller was also able to impress with a good shifterkart performance. The Cologne resident was among the top ten of the strongly manned field throughout the entire weekend and went into the first race from seventh place. There Julian was able to confidently defend his position and even improved his performance subsequently. Coming in 4th, he ended up among the cup ranks at the second ranked race and therefore made for a double Mach1-achievement among the top five.

Marcel Schultheiß also started at the KZ2. From 15th position the Mach1 driver started into the first race, but then had to deal with a major setback after a falling out. Marcel then obliviously drove full-speed in the following race and highlighted his potential with a catching-up race from the end of the field to 13th place.

Team leader Martin Hetschel praised his protégés’ performances: “We were able to be on point today. Our shifterkart-performance was really good and already gave a foretaste of next weekend. Then we want to drive at the front again at the DKM.”

Successful weeks for Mach1 Motorsport

A thrilling season finish lies behind German kart manufacturer Mach1-Kart. Within three weeks, several highlights awaited them and Mach1 Motorsport showed its competitiveness. At the German Kart Championship and the ADAC Kart Masters, the drivers ended up on top positions.

After the summer break, things happened really fast for Mach1 Motorsport. The team travelled all over Europe for four weeks. The first highlight was the Kart World Championship in Kristianstad. Douglas Lundberg and Pawel Myszkier started at the top class KZ and drove among midfield.

Only a week later the team travelled to Oschersleben. The half-time race of the German Kart Championship took place at the Motorsport Arena. Swiss Marco Forrer and Julian Müller showed impressive performances at the DMSB Shifterkart Cup. Forrer finished the first final race on tenth position and achieved entering the cup ranks by coming in fifth at the second race. Second top ten driver Julian Müller finished on the great sixth and eighth places.

The team then travelled from Saxony-Anhalt to Upper Palatine. There, the ADAC Kart Masters’ season finale took place on the Prokart Raceland. Haavard Hallerud from Norway drove for Mach1 Motorsport at the X30 seniors. Hallerud belonged to the title favorites in difficult weather conditions and ended the heats on fifth place. With further unsettled weather, he kept his position during the final races and won trophies in both races. Also successful in Wackersdorf were the Mach1 supported factory teams. At the bambini, DS Kartsport driver Luca Voncken ended up on the winners’ podium on third place.

The four weeks of racing action ended on the Erftlandring in Kerpen. The finale of the German Kart Championship took place there. Beaming sunshine and filled-up spectator ranks made for best conditions. The Mach1 drivers experienced thrilling races. After bad luck during the first race, Myszkier and Lundberg fought their ways through the field from the back rows. After 23 laps, Pole Myszkier came in 11th and Lundberg 13th. Lundberg finished the Championship on the 10th place in the end.

Team leader Martin Hetschel was content with his drivers’ and team’s performances after the stressful weeks: “This has really been an exciting month for us. Everyone had to focus their strength and everyone did a great job. The drivers have highlighted the possibilities of our racing material and showed great fights during the races. We’re now going to take a deep breath to start into the remaining races with new strength.”

The Mach1 supported factory teams are going to start at the ADAC Kart final run in just a couple of days and only a week later, the IAME X30 International Finals are going to take place in LeMans. 12 drivers are going to fight for victories in the classes junior, senior, masters and super shifter there. The drivers are going to be supported by MLC Motorsport, Mach1 Racing UAE, Mach1 Karts Usa, MOTORSPORT24, Delré Racing Team and Mach1 Motorsport.
