Shortly after the season finale in Ampfing, the German Kart Championship already presented its racing calendar for 2020.

The half-time event is going to take place from July 17th – 19th on the traditional Erftlandring in Kerpen. After a six-week summer break, a premiere awaits the participants from August 28th – 30th: For the first time, the DKM is going to take place on the new race track in Mülsen (Saxony). The Arena E is 1.350m long and complies with the highest international standards. The big season finale is then going to take place at the beginning of October (2nd – 4th) in Belgian Genk. The race track close to the German-Dutch border is the only foreign track for the DMSB grade series in 2020.
The DKM upholds continuity regarding the regulations: All classes are going to start with Vega tires again. Additionally, the DKM provides an extensive race-control with top modern 4K camera technique and 16 hours of live images of every racing weekend as well as an extensive fostering program again.
