Three weeks before the premiere of the German Kart Championship on the new racetrack in Mülsen (Saxony), the organizer Kart-Club-Sachsen e.V. cancels the event. Despite extensive efforts, the responsible parties were unable to agree on the financing of the event. Now, the second run takes place again in Kerpen.
“When planning our racing calendar, we were very pleased that we were able to include another modern track with Mülsen,” says series coordinator Stefan Wagner, adding, “unfortunately, the organizer now has to cancel the race shortly before the premiere due to economic reasons.”
Thus, after a very successful start to the season, the highest German karting series was left without a venue for the second race weekend from August 28th to 30th. The Kart-Club Kerpen e.V. has now offered itself as a replacement. After a good start, the club is willing to host a second run of the DKM in the short amount of time. “We are very happy about this flexibility and we give the people in charge full credit,” says Stefan Wagner.
“This is certainly not the DKM season as we wanted it to be. But everything seems to be different in 2020. With this possibility, however, we can offer our participants the chance to continue to fight for the title in the DKM and continue the season. This is important for German karting sport and for our teams. They need racing to continue their business,” Wagner added.
The track will also be open for test driving at the Thursday before the event. Guest starter entries will soon be possible for the race on the online entry portal of the DKM.
Due to this cancellation the 2020 DEKM race calendar will also change:
26 – 27/08/2020 – Official test days Kerpen
28 – 30/08/2020 – Kerpen / DKM
04 – 06/09/2020 – Wackersdorf / RMCET
25 – 27/09/2020 – Wackersdorf / DKM
16 – 18/10/2020 – Ampfing / DKM
