Already since the beginning of the season, the German Shifter Kart Championship has been weakly occupied. Additional deregistrations of participants for the final in the motorsport arena Oschersleben now ensure that the DSKM cannot be carried out. Jorrit Pex is the champion of a shortened season.
"After the discontinuation of the race in Ampfing, in Kerpen we have already agreed with the teams to host the final in Oschersleben. We appreciate the ADAC Ost-Westfalen-Lippe and the motorsport arena Oschersleben for having stepped in the current time," DKM series coordinator Stefan Wagner explains.
Nevertheless, several participants deregistered from the German Shifter Kart Championship final, which means that it is no longer possible to hold the races. "We spoke to the remaining drivers and decided to do so. This is of course a great pity, especially because we tried to work out a solution early on and involved the teams," Stefan Wagner continues.
The other four categories, on the other hand, are heavily occupied, with more than 100 drivers having agreed to come and compete in the final races of the DKM season 2020. Among them are some guest starters who use the weekend to present themselves in the environment of the DKM.
In 2016, the 1,018-meter race track in Oschersleben was last featured on the DKM racing calendar and is now the end of an eventful season. Juho Valtanen (DKM), Kris Haanen (DJKM), Tim Tröger (DSKC) and Luka Wlömer (DEKM) are the overall leaders of the individual classes.
In addition to an extensive safety and hygiene concept for the race in Oschersleben, all participants must comply with the legal requirements. These stipulate that persons from a national or international risk area must present a negative corona test up to 48 hours.
