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.

Mach1 Motorsport on the podium again

DKM Wackersdorf: Mach1 Motorsport on the podium – Extreme weather events in Upper Palatine

After a very successful kick-off to the German Kart Championship in Italian Lonato, Mach1 Motorsport travelled to the next event of the high class championship on German ground last weekend. In Bavarian Wackersdorf, the racing team of the traditional manufacturer started with six drivers against the international competition.

About four weeks after the kick-off to the German Kart Championship, the engines blared again in Wackersdorf (Upper Palatine) last weekend. More than 160 drivers from more than 25 nations gathered on one of the most modern kart tracks of Europe and showed thrilling races. After Daniel Stell’s kick-off victory in Italy, the team surrounding Martin Hetschel travelled on highly motivated and lived up to their expectations despite a little bit of bad racing luck.

At the seniors of the DKM, Tim Tröger gave it his all. Having fallen out prematurely due to an accident in Lonato, he didn’t waste any time in Wackersdorf. From the solid 24th place after qualifying, the Saxon floored it and improved his position continuously. 19th position on the interim rankings was followed by eleventh place at the first ranked race. At the second race, Tim was temporarily even on the great third place, but due to some quarrels came in 11th and just barely missed placing among the top ten.

David Liwinski unfortunately experienced a bad weekend in Wackersdorf. After a cautious qualifying a heat falling out followed, which finally cost the Dutchman the hoped for final qualification.

In the beginning it seemed to become a rollercoaster ride for Pawel Myszkier at the DMSB Shifterkart Cup. 13th place at qualifying was followed by an impressive third place at the first heat, which was then followed by a heavy setback due to a falling out during the second. Nonetheless, the Pole celebrated a strong comeback during the ranked races from midfield, prevailed against his opponents and finally came in on the great third place.

Marcel Schultheiß also held his ground among the strong field of participants. During the first race, the routine driver was in front of his team mate on ninth place. A time penalty during the second race threw the Mach1 driver back to 14th place though and erased all hopes of placing among the top ten again. Tim Schröder fought with some bad luck during the heats, but found his rhythm again during the races and ended up on 24th place at the second final race despite an engine defect.

Daniel Stell had his hands full at the shifterkarts of the DSKM again. The experienced driver proved his competitiveness during qualifying as well as the heats on the dry track, consequently drove at the front und finally started into the first final race from 9th place. There, Daniel ended up on 14th place due to a spoiler penalty, before new challenges awaited the routine driver during the second race. Similar to Lonato, heavy rain forced drivers and teams to choose their tires. In the end Stell chose slicks and was right with this again. At the end of the race he was the fastest driver of the field and fought for a place on the podium. A small collision and later time penalty threw him back to 16th place though.
“Of course we had hoped for a little more regarding the cup results this weekend.

Unfortunate situations on the track sadly threw our drivers back a bit – a lot more would have been possible with our speed. The rematch is going to follow at the half-time race in Ampfing – Pawel has shown where we want to go”, Martin Hetschel said ambitiously in the evening.
In three weeks the drivers are going to start at the half-time race of the DKM on the Schweppermannring 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.

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.
