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.

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.

Strong Mach1 performance stays unrewarded – In Kerpen, factory team impresses on Saturday, has some bad luck then

Last weekend the Mach1 Motorsport team travelled to the German Kart Championship in Kerpen. Martin Hetschel’s protégés showed great performances on the Erftlandring on Saturday and wanted to repeat these on the racing Sunday. In the end they had to deal with major setbacks but were then able to draw positive conclusions for the future.

Beaming sunshine and filled up spectator terraces. 153 drivers from more than 20 different nations. A demanding challenge in Germany’s highest racing series awaited Mach1 Motorsport on the Erftlandring. All in all, the German chassis manufacturer sent in nine drivers in all four grade series.

The juniors Luca Voncken and Julien-Noel Rehberg entered new territory: They started in front of such a setting for the first time and went up against strong international competition. Voncken did really well on Saturday and raced forward to 11th position at the first heat after coming in 27th at qualifying. Julien-Noel Rehberg also increased his performance continuously throughout Saturday and drove from 41st place at qualifying to 23rd and 20th positions at the heats. The junior duo didn’t have a lot of luck during the final races on Sunday though and had to deal with three fallings-out.

At the German Shifterkart Championship, Marcel Schultheiß and Daniel Stell represented Mach1 Motorsport. Daniel Stell was on the right track on Saturday: After 14th position at qualifying he gained nine places during the first heat and came in fifth. A falling out at the second heat made him start into the final races from 18th place though. He then already fought his way forward during the first ranked race to 13th place and was aiming for the top five for quite a while during the second race. “Unfortunately the mounting of my radiator broke and I wasn’t able to go on driving”, said Daniel at the finish line. Team mate Marcel Schultheiß wasn’t able to enter the final races due to a falling out at one of the heats and therefore only was an involuntary spectator on Sunday.

At the German Shifterkart Cup, Julian Müller started into the event on the 1.107m long Erftlandring as the overall leading driver. Saturday started promisingly. First he achieved fifth place at qualifying – then he won the first heat with a considerable advance to his opponents. Sixth place at the second heat brought him the fifth starting position for the final races. But a technical defect of the engine forced him to end the race prematurely during the first race already. He also had to deal with a falling out during the second race – a major setback. Tim Schröder on the other hand fought among midfield to keep close to the leading drivers – for him it was a successful event in Kerpen.

Mach1 Motorsport sent a trio to start at the grade series of the OK drivers of the German Kart Championship. Luka Wlömer and David Liwinski kept a clear view despite the rough duels among midfield and held their ground. Liwinski was close to the top ten at the first race by coming in twelfth. Cameron Boedler tried to set a course as well and started into the final races from the strong ninth place after the heats. But just like his team mates he had to deal with some setbacks on Sunday. Technical difficulties caused him problems and he had to bow out of the first race. During his catching-up race at the second final race he was involved in an accident and wasn’t able to get past 27th place in a damaged chassis.

“It’s really frustrating”, complained team leader Martin Hetschel on Sunday evening in Kerpen: “If you look at how well we did on Saturday, the results on Sunday hurt even more. But I don’t want to criticize my boys, who gave their all and just had lots of bad luck. We’re now going to pick ourselves up and prepare well for the ADAC Kart Masters in Wackersdorf.”

The Mach1 Motorsport team now has three weeks to prepare for the event at the Prokart Raceland. With the pace and performance of Saturday in Kerpen they can really hope for good results in Wackersdorf.

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.”

Mach1 Kart drivers with numerous successes

Thanks to strong performances of the Mach1-Kart drivers, the German chassis manufacturer was successful on different locations at the same time last weekend. Douglas Lundberg became strong fourth winner at the Swedish Championship in Kristianstad, Julian Müller impressed at the ADAC Kart Masters and Mach1 was able to drive among the front field at the ACV Rhine-Main Kart-Cup as well.

Factory driver Douglas Lundberg started at the Swedish Championship in Kristianstad in front of a local audience and was among the top drivers from the beginning. He secured pole position at the shifterkart-class KZ2 during qualifying. 200grams underweight threw him back to the end of the field though. During the course of the heats he was then able to fight his way forward from 73rd position and ended the big finale on the outstanding fourth place. “Douglas showed a sensational performance. To come back so strongly after that huge misfortune during qualifying is a great achievement. Our material worked perfectly. We’re going to keep working hard until the Championship and come back even stronger”, team leader Martin Hetschel summed up.

Julian Müller and Pawel Myszkier started at the half-time race of the ADAC Kart masters in Kerpen. On his home track, Müller finally had no problems and experienced two perfect racing days. He already drove among the front field during qualifying and the heats and was able to tie in with this during the final races. He ended up in the cup ranks on third and fifth places and experienced his best racing weekend at Germany’s strongest kart racing series so far. On the overall list of rankings he thereby jumped to eighth place.

Pole Pawel Myszkier experienced a completely different weekend at the X30 seniors. On 10th place during qualifying, he completely fell out during the heats and had to start into the first final race from the last place. Despite the high power density at the X30 seniors he fought his way forward with a strong performance from 33rd to 14th position. His positive trend was then unfortunately stopped during the second race due to another falling out.
The Mach1 factory supported teams DS Kartsport and LS-Racing showed strong performances as well again. The Mach1 drivers drove among the forefront at the Bambini class and ended up with three drivers among the top five. LS-driver Lucas Speck did well at the shifterkarts and ended up on third and fourth places.

“This was a good weekend for Mach1-Kart. At the shifterkarts three Mach1-karts temporarily were on the front positions. There was a similar image at the bambini class. Unfortunately Pawel had bad luck at the X30 seniors, otherwise he would have been a certain top five candidate as well”, Hetschel summed up.

At the ACV Rhine-Main Kart-Cup, Rotax DD2-driver Marco Göttler and Rotax Micro driver Jonas Teichmann had perfect racing days in Wittgenborn and both secured the well-deserved triumph on the day’s rating due to a double victory.

Mach1-Kart is already going to travel to the next event next weekend. The German Kart Championship’s third of five events is going to take place in Genk. Two weeks before the European Kart Championship at the same location the fields of participants are going to be strongly manned.
