For the first time, the Electric kart racing series is going to take place within the Rotax MAX Challenge Germany. Therefore, the drivers of the Rotax MAX seniors get the chance to get to know the high performance racing E-kart „Project E20“ due to a double start.
Debut at the Arena E in Mülsen
Originally, the DEKM was already supposed to start at the new Arena E in Mülsen last year. Due to the Corona pandemic, the start had to be cancelled though. In 2021, two races are going to take place on the race track in Saxony. The first event is now going to take place within the RMC Germany. In September (10th – 12th), the DEKM is going to travel to Mülsen again for the season finale – this time within the DKM. The newly built track near Zwickau is a challenge for the drivers due to its routing.
