After a long winter break, drivers, teams and organizers are looking forward to the kick-off of the 2020 German Kart Championship on the Schweppermannring of Ampfing. The first race of the year will take place in Bavaria from May 8th to 10th before continuing to Wackersdorf, Kerpen, Mülsen, and Genk in Belgium.

The program includes the German Kart Championship, the German Junior Kart Championship, the German Shift Kart Championship, the DMSB Schalt-Kart-Cup and the German Electric Kart Championship. Since registration opened in January (available until March 1st), more than 115 participants have submitted their nominations in what promises to be a top-class field.

Attractive prices await the best drivers again at the end of the year. In addition to free registrations and tires for the 2021 season, the best-placed ones in races will also receive simulator and test drives. In addition, there will be a Nations Cup for the first time in 2020 in which the best nation will be honored within a DKM framework at the season’s end. The best team will also be awarded a trophy and a free starting place for 2021.

For all participants of the DKM, DJKM, and DSKM, the two worst final results won’t be considered for the overall ranking. In the DMSB Schalt-Kart-Cup, the worst result from a Prefinal, a Final of a final phase won’t be considered either in the standings.

A new e-kart will be used in the German Electric Kart Championship in 2020. Technology partner BRP-Rotax presented the prototype of the new model “Project E20” at the end of last year. With a new concept, the kart has a lower weight and therefore a higher performance with longer range.

The winner of the DEKM gets a test drive in a Porsche Cayman GT4. In addition, the first two drivers will be qualified for the Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals in Bahrain. A third ticket for the World Finals will be raffled off among all DEKM participants.
