Numerous measures were taken throughout these past days to protect the population and contain the coronavirus in Europe and this includes sporting events. The German Kart Championship with its five grade series DKM, DJKM, DSKM, DSKC, and DEKM is reacting to the new developments and has decided to postpone the season’s kick-off that was supposed to take place from May 8th – 10th at Ampfing.
The race on the Schweppermannring will be the final event of the 2020 season from October 16th – 18th on the 1.063 meter-long track located in Bavaria. All other dates remain unchanged. The kick-off will take place at the beginning of June (5th – 7th) on the ProKart Raceland of Wackersdorf, followed by Kerpen, Mülsen, and Genk in Belgium.
Due to the date change, the German Electric Kart Championship (DEKM) will only unfold through three DKM weekends at Wackersdorf, Kerpen, and Mülsen. The fourth event will be organized within the framework of the Rotax Max Challenge Euro Trophy from September 4th – 6th at Wackersdorf. The people responsible are currently working on the fifth event to be included within the framework of a different championship.
The interest regarding DKM is pleasantly high again in 2020 with up to 132 drivers from all over the world already registered for the five-grade series.
