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.

Mach1 Motorsport starts into the new year successfully – First commitment at the Tropheo Andrea Margutti

The first event of the year awaited Mach1 Motorsport in Italy from March 9th – 11th. The new Mach1 chassis and the newly homologated brake system were in focus. In the end, the only
German kart manufacturer came to a positive conclusion. All three drivers drove on the front positions among the international field of participants.

There was no time for boredom during the winter months for Mach1 Kart. The manufacturer from Swabia further developed the current FIA5-chassis for the upcoming homologation phase and bound a new factory driver for the OK-category: Tim Tröger.

Now they started at the first event of the year: The venerable Tropheo Andrea Margutti in Lonato. More than 250 drivers from all over the world met on the 1.250m long track on the brink of Lake Garda. Mach1 Motorsport started with three drivers in the classes OK and KZ2. The weather caused additional excitement. During the heats and races it rained heavily and pushed men and machines to their limits.

Newbie Tim Tröger successfully started in the OK-class and already drove among the top ten during the heats. He was able to continue like this during the pre-finale as well and came in seventh despite a time penalty. The Saxon was on his way to the podium during the big final race then, but had to end the race prematurely while being on third place due to a racing accident that wasn’t his fault.

His team mate David Liwinski also drove really well, but had some bad luck during a heat and therefore fell from 10th qualifying place back to 18th place on the interim rankings. He fought his way forward again during the pre-finale and came in twelfth. Due to problems with his carburetor he had to end the final race prematurely too though.

Daniel Stell was among the fastest drivers at the shifter karts the entire time. He made himself known to his competition by coming in eighth at qualifying and was able to tie in with this during the heats as well. His starting position for the final race was ideal due to second, third and fourth places. He started into the first race from the third starting row. A collision and a time penalty during the pre-finale threw him back considerably for the final race though. He then showed his qualities despite the adverse weather conditions and came in among the top fifteen.

Despite the setbacks on Sunday, team leader Martin Hetschel was content with the kick-off: „We can sum things up positively. The new developments on the chassis and the attachments work really well. The drivers’ feedback is positive. Unfortunately the racing luck
left us on Sunday. All three drivers had been candidates for the podium. We’re going to go into the next races highly motivated again though.“

The team is going to drive on German soil from April 6th – 8th. Then, the first race of the ADAC Kart Masters is going to take place in Ampfing.

Mach1 Motorsport achieves DSKC vice championship – Eventful finale of the DKM in Italy

Last weekend Mach1 Motorsport travelled to the foreign round of the German Kart Championship in Lonato. The grade series started into its final ranked races on Italian ground for the first time on the South Garda Circuit. The team surrounding Martin Hetschel faced the challenges with eight drivers and achieved the vice title at the DMSB Shifterkart Cup with Julian Müller.

The final event of the German Kart Championship presented itself highly international from October 20th – 22nd in Italy. The championship took place in Italy for the first time and attracted high interest right away. More than 170 drivers from 20 nations gathered on the 1.200m long high-speed track and dueled in the four categories. After dry conditions on Saturday, continuous rain followed on Sunday and pushed drivers and materials to their limits.

A quartet of Mach1 Motorsport drivers started at the seniors. Cameron Boedler showed an especially good performance. The German-Brazilian drove among the front field of the high-class participants of the German Kart Championship and secured the tenth starting position for the final races due to seventh and ninth places at the heats. The youngster was able to impress on the wet track as well. With 13th and 11th positions Cameron just barely missed entering the top ten and thereby celebrated his best DKM result this year.

David Liwinski followed in his team mate’s wind shadow in the end. After messed up heats the Dutchman started into the first ranked race from 29th starting position and held his ground there with a strong catching-up race. He came in 19th at the first race and got even further at the second by coming in 17th in the end.

Luka Wlömer and Marcel Weber had to deal with disappointments. Both Mach1-protégés broke new ground on the South Garda Circuit but weren’t able to achieve the coveted final tickets in the end.

Daniel Stell started as a soloist at the German Shifterkart Championship. On Saturday things still looked liked an absolute success for the routine driver. He ended the heats on 11th and 3rd places and thereby the KZ2-driver highlighted his ambitions and took it up with the international top competition. Daniel started into Sunday from ninth place and finished the final races on 15th and 19th positions.

Julian Müller started at the DMSB Shifterkart Cup in Lonato as the title favorite. The Cologne resident drove among the front field in difficult conditions and finished the ranked races on seventh and tenth places. At the finish line, he could rejoice about achieving the vice championship at the DSKC.

Marcel Schultheiß caused a surprise. The Mach1 driver presented himself in top form at his DSKC-debut and drove among the forefront. From 13th place at qualifying Marcel already improved his performance during the heats to the seventh position in the interim rankings. Due to two sixth places at the races, the 21-year-old completed his successful debut.

Tim Schröder also ended the weekend with a smile on his face. The Mach1-protégé showed a great upwards trend throughout the entire event and achieved his best performance of the season in the end due to 14th and 11th places.

“An exciting year at the German Kart Championship is now behind us. The competition here in Lonato was strong – which is why I’m even happier about my team’s performance. The title was really close for Julian, but the vice championship is a great success too. Our speed was right at the other classes as well. It was a completely successful guest event for us here in Italy”, team leader Martin Hetschel summed up.

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.

World class…

World class performance by Mach1 Kart in Wackersdorf – Daniel Stell stirs up kart racing elite

In front of a local audience, German kart manufacturer Mach1-Kart knew how to impress at the World Championship in Wackersdorf. From the beginning, Daniel Stell belonged to the
top drivers at the CIK-FIA International KZ2 Super Cup and finished the weekend on the impressive seventh place.

The Shifterkart World Championship 2017 became a great kart racing festival in Germany. More than 160 drivers from 23 nations started into the fight for the highest international kart racing title. Mach1-Motorsport sent three drivers into the races: Daniel Stell, Pawel Myszkier and Thierry Delre.

Strong competition awaited the three drivers at the CIK-FIA International KZ2 Super Cup. During qualifying and six heats respectively, they had to manage ending up among the best 34 drivers of overall 113 participants. The conditions on the 1.190m long track of the Prokart Raceland were challenging. Rain caused changed conditions especially on Saturday afternoon.

Local driver Daniel Stell achieved a perfect start. On second place after qualifying, he had a great starting position for the following heats. “The field is unbelievably close together. The first 104 drivers are less than a second apart”, team leader Martin Hetschel summed up. Daniel wasn’t intimidated though. With two heat victories, three second and a fourth place, he held his own among the best drivers in the world and started into the big finale over 26 laps from fourth place.

More than 3000 spectators experienced a kart racing spectacle par excellence in Upper-Palatine. The drivers showed incredible fights during the final race and postponed the decisions until the very end. Daniel defended his position as best German driver and came in seventh. “Summarized, this was a great week for us. Daniel proved that you can fight for victory with our material. He is a strong driver and has a lot of ambition. We didn’t have the perfect tire setup during the final race and still belonged to the best with the third-fastest lap. I really have to praise Daniel who withstood the pressure during all three days”, said team leader Martin Hetschel in the evening.

His two team mates didn’t end up among the 34 best drivers after the difficult heats. Their performances were still impressive. Thierry Delre highlighted his driving skills repeatedly in the rain. During one heat he drove forward from 26 th starting position to third place. Pawel Myszkier got close to the top ten several times as well. After the World Championship Mach1 Motorsport is going to continue with full-speed. The finale of the ADAC Kart Masters is going to take place from September 30 th to October 1 st in Wackersdorf as well.

Mach1 Motorsport conquered back DSKC championship lead – Double victory for Julian Müller

Mach1 Motorsport just experienced an exciting weekend. The racing team of the German chassis manufacturer started with nine drivers at the fourth event of the German Kart Championship in
Wackersdorf. The traditional brand’s protégés thereby showed great performances among the international and strongly manned fields of participants. Julian Müller took the overall lead of the DMSB Shifterkart Cup after a top performance.

The organizers of the German Kart Championship saw a full house in Bavarian Wackersdorf last weekend. For the second time this season, the high-class German racing series took place at the
Prokart Raceland and received a lot of positive feedback. 152 national and international drivers started two weeks before the CIK-FIA Kart World Championship on the same track and offered a lot to the numerous spectators.

As the youngest driver of the team, Julien-Noel Rehberg used the races of the German Junior Kart Championship to gain further experience on international terrain. As 37 th driver at qualifying, the
youngster just barely missed entering the final races by ending up on 35 th place at the heats.

At the seniors, four drivers started with Mach1 Motorsport. David Liwinski really called attention to himself due to a great performance. As 17th driver he was in midfield of the top class after qualifying,then really gave it his all during the races and raced forward. From twelfth place at the first race, the young driver drove forward to sixth place during the second race and just barely missed the cup ranks.

Team mate Cameron Boedler also impressed with a great catching-up race. On the good 10th place after the heats, he had a falling out during the first race due to an accident. The German-Brazilian wasn’t deterred by this though and drove past his opponents during the second race due to clever maneuvers and finally came in 15th.

Luka Wlömer showed a great upwards trend as well. After he came in 29th during the first race, the youngster proved his fighting spirit during the second race and ended up on 19th place despite a time
penalty.

Marcel Weber showed a solid performance as the fourth driver of the team and came in 27th and 25th respectively.

Daniel Stell was on a level playing field with the international top drivers at the German Shifterkart Championship. He was the third fastest driver at qualifying and thereby called attention to him for
the first time. He then tied in with his success during the heats by coming in sixth and third. The first race went according to plan by coming in sixth as well. As the best German driver he was very close
to the top five. Daniel showed thrilling duels during the second race as well. Unfortunately he was involuntarily stopped due to an accident though and had to end the race prematurely.

Marcel Schultheiß also started at the DSKM. Mixed heats prevented him from entering the final races though.

Julian Müller experienced a perfect weekend at the DMSB Shifterkart Cup. The young driver showed his top form that has been continuing throughout the season in Wackersdorf as well and didn’t give his opponents any chances during the races. After a mixed Saturday, Julian started into the first race from third place and took the lead early on. Until the end of the race this didn’t change and Müller celebrated his victory. He didn’t let anyway take it away from him during the second race as well. He took the lead on the overall list of rankings due to his double victory and is now one of the big title favorites.

Team mate Tim Schröder drove among midfield of the championship and missed the point ranks narrowly by coming in 17th at the second race.

„It was a good weekend for us. Even though we had lots of bad luck – especially regarding Daniel’s falling out – we were able to show a good performance today. Julian highlighted our efficiency at the
DSKC and showed that we are also really fast with track conditions on a high international level. We want to tie in with this in two weeks at the World Championship. We want to cause a surprise with
our drivers in front of a native audience”, said team leader Martin Hetschel contently.

Mach1 Motorsport in Wackersdorf stopped by bad luck

The attention of the international kart racing scene was on the half-time race of the German Kart Championship in Wackersdorf last weekend. The factory team of German chassis manufacturer Mach1 travelled to the Prokart Raceland with eight drivers. They caused quite a stir especially at the shifterkart championship, but weren’t able to gain equivalent results in the end due to unlucky situations on the track in Germany’s highest kart racing series.

The second weekend of July was a guarantee for high-class kart racing in Bavarian Wackersdorf. 160 drivers competed against each other on the 1.190m long track in Upper-Palatine. The racing division of the German kart manufacturer Mach1 started in three different categories and was able to hold their ground even with high grip conditions and midsummery temperatures.

Four drivers started in the senior category. David Liwinski started off as the best Mach1-protégé at the German Kart Championship in the beginning. After 18th place at qualifying the Dutchman moved forward to 12th starting position for the first final race after good heats. During this the youngster lost some positions due to quarrels though and fell back to 17th place. A falling out during the second race erased all hopes of a further catching-up race afterwards.

Cameron Boedler showed a solid performance. After 23rd place at qualifying he came in on the good 15th places at the crucial ranked races and thereby collected championship points in both races. Team mate Luka Wlömer also showed his potential due to a good catching-up race. From 28th position at qualifying the Berlin resident drove forward to 17th place.

En Qi Wang presented himself greatly. The young driver from China celebrated a great premiere at his first ever OK race and directly qualified for the final races. In the end he had to end both races prematurely due to accidents though.

Daniel Stell already entered an ambitious direction during qualifying of the German Shifterkart Championship by gaining ninth place. A falling out during a heat threw the routine driver back to 22nd place on the interim rankings though. The ADAC Kart Masters champion of the 2015 season had less luck during the races as well. Accidents prevented the shifterkart driver from showing his true potential. In the end he still achieved a good 16th place at the second race despite a time penalty.

Marcel Schultheiß had to deal with bigger disappointments. Two fallings out at the qualification races threw the Mach1 Motorsport-protégé back to the end of the field and prevented him from entering the final races.

Julian Müller showed his usual top form at the DMSB Shifterkart Cup. After two second places in the heats the Cologne resident drove among the front field during the first race as well and came in fourth. During the second race his way to the cup ended prematurely though. During the fight for third place Julian unfortunately had to park his kart in the off due to an accident.

Tim Schröder gave everything at the DSKC as well. The Northerner showed a good performance by coming in 19th and 14th respectively and proved his competitiveness.

“The conditions were really extreme today. The track conditions were really challenging due to the high grip. Our performance was right though – unfortunately there was a lot of additional bad luck during the races, otherwise Daniel and Julian would have been able to drive among the forefront too. Now we have to look forward positively. We can already do better next weekend at the ADAC Kart Masters in Kerpen”, team leader Martin Hetschel said in the evening.
