German Kart Championship final in Ampfing
This weekend, the last decisions in the German Kart Championship are going to be made on the Schweppermannring in Ampfing. 188 drivers from more than 20 nations are going to start in the five DMSB grade series, among them three current Kart World Champions. It hasn’t been this exciting in a while: All decisions are still to be made in all classes.
The 1.063m long track in Upper Bavaria has been a solid part of the German Kart Championship for a long time, but there is still going to be a premiere this time – for the first time, the 1st Kart Club Munich e.V. in the ADAC is going to host a race in the highest German kart racing series.
With 188 drivers, the participants‘ interest is again really high at the season final as well. A high-class field from more than 20 nations is going to start in Ampfing. Among them are
Thomas Ten Brinke, Lorenzo Travisanutto and Emilien Denner, three brandnew Kart World Champions.
Fights for the titles in focus
The fights for the titles in the four classes DKM, DJKM, DSKM and DSKC are going to be in focus. There are still three Championship-aspirants in the top class. German Hugo Sasse (TB Racing Team) is currently leading the championship. But in consideration of the void results, his pursuers Harry Thompson (Ricky Flynn Motorsport) and Lorenzo Travisanutto (CV Performance Group) are close behind.
There is going to be a duel at the juniors between Robert De Haan (Energy Corse) and Christian Ho (Ricky Flynn Motorsport). De Haan has won five races so far; at the last event in Genk, Ho was unstoppable though and thereby got back in the pursuing role. The best German driver Jakob Bergmeister (Millennium Racing Team) is still fighting for a place among the top three in Ampfing.
The two shifterkart-classes are divided. While in the DSKM, Stan Pex (SP Motorsport) is on the best way to the title, three drivers are still fighting for the cup in the DMSB Shifterkart Cup. Leading driver Valentino Fritsch (BirelArt Racing KSW) impressed with a high consistency so far – he hasn’t won a ranked race in 2019, but always gained high points. His pursuers Senna Van Walstijn (SP Motorsport) and Davids Trefilovs (SRP Racing Team) have already won races on the other hand and can still overtake the Upper Palatine resident Fritsch.
German Electric Kart Championship (DEKM)‘s semi-final
Contrary to the other participants, the pioneers of the German Electric Kart Championship are only going to start at their semi-final in Ampfing. Drivers from eight nations are going to start at the first pure Electric Kart racing series in the world. After a four-time victory by Jasin Ferati in Belgian Genk, the field at the top has gotten really close. Currently, Luca Wlömer is leading the overall list of rankings with 186 points, but his pursuers are close behind. First and foremost Swiss Ferati: He is only 22 points behind the German. Joel Sturm on third place also still lies in waiting – he is 46 points behind the leading driver.
