Frankfurt on the Main. On January 6th at 8 a.m., the kick-off to the 2019 season is going to take place due to the start of the online-registration for the German Kart Championship. Interested drivers can register for the four grade series DKM (OK), DJKM (OK-Junior), DSKM (KZ2) and DSKC (KZ2) on the website www.kart-dm.de. The racing calendar again consists of five races spread over Germany, Belgium and Italy.
The German Kart Championship already presented the racing calendar for the year 2019 at the beginning of November. The highest German kart racing series again has a strong program, just like in the past years. The first track is the South Garda Circuit in Lonato. From April 12th-14th, the DKM is going to take place on the 1.200m long race track, which is also going to be the location for the Shifterkart World Championship this year. After the race in Italy, things are going to continue in Germany. In the middle of May (10th-12th), the races are going to take place at the Prokart Raceland Wackersdorf. Two months later, things are going to continue from July 12th-14th on the traditional track in Kerpen.
The 1.360m long track in Genk is going to be a part of the DKM again as well. The international top track is going to host the kart racing series of the German Motorsports Foundation (DMSB) from August 2nd-4th and could already be the location for the first title decisions. The final championship cups are going to be dealt out in October (4th-6th) in Ampfing. The Schweppermannring is the final track of the DKM this year.
The DKM aims for continuity regarding the regulations: All classes are going to start with Vega tires again. Additionally, the DKM is providing extensive race-control and 16 hours of live images every racing weekend as well as an extensive sponsoring program again.
