Werner Ihle was the first ever winner of the German Karting championship in 1962 and with that gave the starting signal for an unexpected talent academy in the worldwide Motorsport. Numerous Motorsport stars started their career in the environment of the DKM, amongst those, 7 time formula 1 world champion Michael Schuhmacher, 4 time champion Sebastian Vettel, and many more.
Five race weekends in the anniversary season
Already in October of last year the DKM released their schedule for 2022. The calendar again comprises five racing weekends on the best Karting tracks in Germany and a foreign appearance in Genk, Belgium. The starting signal is almost traditionally now given at the Erftlandring in Kerpen followed by Genk (Belgium), Ampfing, Mülsen, and lastly Wackersdorf for the final.
Start of the online registration on 20.01.2022
On January 20th 2022 the online registration for the 2022 season starts on the newly redesigned DKM website www.kart-dm.de. The registration is always open for each race until the Monday (24:00 o’clock) prior to a DKM event and is valid for the following events – there are no late fees.
The entry fee is lowered for the 2022 season. For the classes DKM, DJKM, and DSKM it is 2.700€, in the DSKC it is 2.400€. The entry fee already covers the environmental and disposal fees (f.ex. for showers, electricity, waste, and security), the test day, as well as hygiene and security fees for the drivers including all accepted chaperones.
“We are happy that the DKM is such a constant in Karting. 60 years are a long time which we are happy to look back on. For 2022 we have a lot up our sleeves. It is very pleasant that the entry fees are reduced by 500€. With that we are accommodating our drivers a lot. Our racing calendar was updated again with German and international tracks and offer a diversified program”, the DKM coordinator Stefan Wagner is looking forward to the anniversary year of the German Karting championship.
