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.

ADAC Kart Masters title for Mach1

Mach1 Motorsport achieves ADAC Kart Masters title
Julian Müller new KZ2-Champion – Tim Tröger OK-vice champion

German chassis manufacturer Mach1 had every reason to rejoice last weekend. At the final of the ADAC Kart Masters in Bavarian Wackersdorf, Julian Müller achieved the overall victory in the hard-fought shifter kart class KZ2. Tim Tröger also impressed completely and achieved the vice-championship in the OK class for his team.

Last weekend, everything was at stake for 163 drivers at the Prokart Raceland in Wackersdorf once more. In the final ranked races of the ADAC Kart Masters, all drivers fought for the last remaining points in the strongly manned championships of the renowned racing series. Under partially difficult conditions on the 1.190m long track, Mach1 Motorsport sent four drivers into the races and showed a brilliant performance.

Erik Müller experienced a retained Saturday at the X30 seniors and was on the 25th place of the interim rankings after a severe racing accident during the last heat. Due to his injuries, he was then only able to enter the second final race but still achieved a conciliatory ending: he raced forward from the end of the field to 16th position and thereby achieved a good final result of his rookie season.

Tim Tröger belonged to the big title favorites at the OK. With the second place at qualifying and second place after the heats, he lived up to this role at the beginning of the weekend. During the first ranked race, the Plauen resident showed his best form by coming in second and driving the best time of the race. In the second race, the tire selection, unfortunately, put a spoke in his wheel though. On the drying track, the Saxon chose rain tires and unfortunately had to forfeit the race prematurely. This didn’t change the outcome of the championship anymore though and Tim was honored as the vice-champion of the OK class in the evening.

David Liwinski started into the first race from 18th place after unfortunate heats and then showed some action. In the strongly manned OK-field, he drove forward to 10th place during the first race and even achieved jumping on the winner’s podium at the second race by coming in third.

Julian Müller traveled to the final in Wackersdorf with high ambitions. In the shifter-kart class, the decisions were still to be made at the last event, which is why the Cologne resident started his catching-up race immediately after coming in eighth at qualifying. By ending up on 5th place in the interim rankings, Julian highlighted his upwards-trend for the first time and even improved this by coming in third at the first ranked race. During the second race, Julian proved his skills by coming in eighth as well. In the end, a freeze during the second race left no doubt and the KZ2-routine driver achieved the well-deserved ADAC Kart Masters title.

Team leader Martin Hetschel summed up the events with a big smile on his face in the evening: “The title at the KZ2, as well as the OK-vice championship, are rewards for our hard work during the year. Despite the partially difficult track conditions, we were able to drive among the front fields until the end and hold our ground against the best drivers of Germany. We now want to tie in with this next season – we’re still hungry for more success.”

Next weekend, the team is going to travel on again. The Kart World Championship is then going to take place in Genk and Mach1-Kart wants to impress on international ground.

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.”
