Next weekend, the second event of the German Kart Championship is going to take place. 168 drivers from more than 25 nations are going to start in Upper Palatine. An additional highlight awaits: The world premiere of the German Electric Kart Championship.


Four weeks ago, the 2018 season started for the DMSB kart racing grade series DKM, DJKM, DSKM and DSKC. In Italian Lonato, the participants drove narrow races. Harry Thompson (DKM), Kai Askey (DJKM), Jorrit Pex (DSKM) and Emilien Denner (DSKC) are going to start at the second event as the overall leading drivers of the championships. The competition is really strong this year again though - the best drivers and teams are taking part in the German Kart Championship.


The Prokart Raceland belongs to the most modern kart racing tracks in Europe and was one of the locations of the Kart World Championship last year. A mix of fast passages and narrow bends awaits the drivers on the 1.190m long track.


MOTORVISION.TV broadcasts highlights, all races streamed live
The races on the 1.190m long Prokart Raceland are going to be accompanied by an extensive live stream again. On Saturday from 10:10am and Sunday from 9:30am, all racing events can be watched live on www.kart-dm.de. Additionally, the German automobile-, engine- and motorsports-channel MOTORVISION.TV is going to broadcast a 30-minute-long highlight magazine afterwards. The DKM is expanding its engagement in social media for the second event as well. The DKM fans can be even closer now due to the new Instagram-page.


World premiere of the German Electric Kart Championship

The history books are going to be rewritten in Wackersdorf. The German Electric Kart Championship (DEKM)'s season kick-off is going to take place as the first pure Electric Kart racing series worldwide. 18 young drivers aged between 15 and 18 are going to start with unified karts and are going to drive four races overall: Two on Saturday, two on Sunday. The races are all 8 minutes plus one lap long and promise thrilling fights for positions from the beginning. The best driver is going to receive a sponsored program by Porsche Motorsport at the end of the year.


Narrow fights for positions at the top of the leagues
Harry Thompson (Ricky Flynn Motorsport) is leading the overall list of rankings of the German Kart Championship (DKM). In Lonato, the top class showed two thrilling races. The first 40 drivers were already within a second of each other during qualifying. Things went on just as narrowly during the later final races. Behind the leading Brit, German Hugo Sasse (TB Racing Team) follows with just two points behind. The two leading juniors are also only two points apart: Enzo Trulli (CRG Holland) was first driver of qualifying, the heats and the first final race. During the second race, the son of former Formula 1 driver Jarno Trulli had to make room for the competition though. Kai Askey (Ricky Flynn Motorsport) won the race and is now at the top of the list of rankings, in front of Trulli.


At the Shifterkarts of the DSKM, Jorrit Pex (CRG Holland) can't seem to help himself. The six-time champion impressed with his consistency again and is leading the championship. Directly behind him is Daniel Stell (Mach1 Motorsport). The German won a thrilling second final race in Lonato and is only one point behind. Emilien Denner (CRG Holland) provided a clear balance of power at the DMSB Shifterkart Cup (DSKC). The driver from France was unstoppable in Lonato and gained the maximum of the available points. Thereby he achieved a small advance right at the beginning.


After the free trainings on Friday, things are going to get serious for the drivers on Saturday during qualifying. After that, every driver is going to start in two heats. The 34 best respective drivers out of these are then going to start in the final races on Sunday. The first race starts at 9:40am with the DSKC.
