Italian tire manufacturer Vega is going to stay the sole supplier of the four grade series of the German Kart Championship in the 2018 season as well. After a successful season, both parties agreed on continuing the cooperation next year.
The participants’ feedback regarding the choice of Vega as tire-supplier for all four DKM-grade series was completely positive this year and therefore the DMSB and the Italian tire manufacturer are going to continue their longtime cooperation in 2018 too.
The tire mixtures for the classes are going to stay the same according to the CIK-FIA-specifications. The DKM (OK) is going to start with the standardized tires Vega XP Prime, the DSKM (KZ2) and the DSKC (KZ2) are going to start with the standardized tires Vega XM Prime, the juniors of the DJKM (OK-Junior) are going to start with the standardized tires Vega XH2 Option. In rain, all four classes of the German Kart Championship are going to start with the standardized tires Vega W5 Rain.
The 2018 season of the German Kart Championship is going to start at the same location where it ended a couple of weeks ago – in Italian Lonato. The kick-off into the 2018 season is going to take place on the South Garda Circuit from April 13th-15th. After that the teams are going to travel on to Wackersdorf, Ampfing and Kerpen. The big final is going to take place at the end of August (24th-26th) in Belgian Genk.
There is going to be an official call for bids regarding the tire supplier of the German Kart Championship in 2019 again. More information is going to be made available in summer 2018.
