DKM live on the internet for three more years
The German Kart Championship is going to be live on the internet over the upcoming years again. The DMSB has come to an agreement for three years with their TV-partner Kart-Data and is thereby providing the teams, drivers and sponsors with a first-class platform.
Since 2012, all the races of the highest German kart racing series have been viewable live on the internet, thereby fascinating thousands of kart racing fans. These can now look forward to even more racing action in the future. From this year on, up to 16 hours of live HD-images of every racing weekend are going to be broadcast via satellite into the World Wide Web. Peppered with exciting reports, interviews and racing scenes, the DKM video live stream provides a unique platform among international kart racing.
“We started this experiment with Kart-Data two years ago and are now celebrating unforeseen success. At the last race of the season in Genk we had more than 20.000 viewers, which is an incredible response and bears us out in our work”, series coordinator Stefan Wagner rejoiced.
There’s going to be no lack of racing action in 2014 as well. Four months before the start of the season, the lists of participants are filling up and the DKM continues to develop into a top racing series in Europe. Drivers from more than ten nations have already announced their attendance, among them some reigning European and World Champions.
The racing action is going to be captured by six full-HD-cameras that are going to be positioned all around the tracks. Additionally, a mobile camera is going to be capturing exciting impressions at the pre-start and Parc Fermé-area. The video live stream is going to be accompanied by an experienced team in 2014 again. Andreas Holzleitner is going to lead the direction alongside his Kart-Data team, while René Köhler and Björn Niemann will be responsible for the presentation and interviews at pre-start.
All in all, the drivers of the DKM are going to start five times this season. The first race will take place on the first weekend of May in Ampfing (May 3rd-4th), after that the drivers are going to travel to Wackersdorf (June 28th-29th), Oschersleben (August 16th-17th), Kerpen (September 13th-14th) and to the big finale in Genk (October 4th-5th).
