Fulminant Mach1 Motorsport victory in Lonato

Mach1 Motorsport celebrated a great start last weekend in Lonato. The team surrounding Martin Hetschel and seven drivers traveled to the season kick-off of the German Kart Championship on the South Garda Circuit in Italy and experienced a successful event. The
fastest Germans held their ground among the front fields of the different classes during turbulent races – Daniel Stell even raced to an impressive victory at the exciting German Shifterkart Championship.

Last weekend, the German Kart Championship started into the new season in Italian Lonato with a record starting field of 174 drivers. The German chassis manufacturer sent their best drivers into the four classes of the prestigious Championship with mostly good track
conditions and caused lots of conversation topics.

Driving for DS Kartsport, Luca Voncken started as a Mach1 Factory supported driver. Among the top-class field of the German Junior Kart Championship the youngster immediately showed an impressive performance. The Mach1 driver was the best German driver by ending up eighth at qualifying. On the interim rankings, Luca fell back to 32nd place due to a falling out, but fought his way forward to 19th place during the second race due to great maneuvers.

David Liwinski proved his skills at the seniors of the DKM. As 16th of qualifying of the 47-drivers-strong field of participants, the Dutchman made himself known. During the heats, the young driver drove among the front third of the field too and started into the final races highly ambitiously. After 18th place at the first ranked race, the Mach1 protégé gave his all once again and raced forward to tenth place.

Team mate Tim Tröger unfortunately was less lucky. After a rough accident during warm-up on Sunday morning he had to forfeit prematurely.

Pawel Myszkier proved himself at the DMSB Shifterkart Cup. After being ninth at qualifying, the Pole improved his performance during the heats even more and secured third place of the interim rankings after two second places. The routine driver defended the same positions during the races as well and caused a lot of joy in the team tent with a double cup success.

Marcel Schultheiß and Tim Schröder showed great performances as well. Marcel fought his way forward through the field after a retained qualifying and finally ended up among the ten best drivers of the class on ninth place at the end of the second race. Tim initially impressed at the heats on 12th and 13th places, but lost a little speed during the races and came in on 24th and 22nd positions.

Daniel Stell showed a phenomenal performance at the German Shifterkart Championship. The ambitious racer proved his goals with the third fastest time of qualifying. During the heats and also with 10th position at the first race, Daniel was always eye to eye with the highest international competition. At the second ranked race, a true spectacle then followed. After a race interruption due to heavy rain, Daniel was one of the few drivers who decided to restart with rain tires. From then on the Mach1 driver took the lead – but had his hands full during dry phases as well as recurrent rain. In the end he kept the upper hand and raced to his first DSKM victory with a considerable advance.

Team leader Martin Hetschel couldn’t stop smiling in the end: „This was a great kick-off. I haven’t seen a race as dramatic as the one Daniel drove in a long time. At the moment of gamble, we made the exactly right decision – I’m incredibly proud of this victory. I’d really like to thank all of my protégés as well. We’ve proven our potential once again during this weekend. We wish Tim all the best and hope he gets well again quickly.”

Mach1 Motorsport is already going to go back to the race track in two weeks. From April 28th-29th the ranked races three and four of the ADAC Kart Masters are going to take place in Wackersdorf.

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.

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.
