Frankfurt am Main. Shortly after the season finale, the German Kart Championship presents its calendar for the year 2020. There will be five races again, spread from May to October. Next to well-known locations, the highest German kart racing series is going to take place on the new kart racing track in Mülsen (Saxony) for the first time.
The current season just ended and the German Kart Championship is already looking towards the upcoming year.

After that, the DKM is going to stay in Bavaria and the second event is going to take place on the Prokart Raceland Wackersdorf at the beginning of June (5th – 7th).
Things are going to get emotional at half-time: For the last time, a race of the highest German kart racing series is going to take place on the traditional Erftlandring in Kerpen from July 17th – 19th. The 1.107m long track was the birthplace of numerous German motorsports stars, among them Formula 1 record World Champion Michael Schumacher. At the end of 2020, the track has to make room for brown coal mining.
