Zane survives crash, ready to compete
Zane Maloney is heading for the first round of the Deutsche Kart Meisterschaft (DKM) German Kart Championship at the Lonato Circuit, Italy, this weekend.
After a crash in free practice and a seized engine in the finals of the WSK Series at the Sorno circuit last week, he will start the first round of the DKM followed by the first round of the European Championship.
Since the beginning of registration, the fields of participants of the four grade series from the German Kart Championship are filling up rapidly.
Maloney, last month’s WSK Series winner, driving a FA Tony Kart and attached to Ricky Flynn Motorsport, said he was ready for the challenges ahead and after medical checks is happy to report that all is well with him.
“The crash was an unfortunate incident, but that is racing and I am glad that it was not serious. I am happy with the way things are going, although it is tough following my academic studies and motor sport,” he told NATIONSPORT from Italy.
“The entire exercise is all part of my learning development and my preparation and I thank Sol Barbados, Rock Hard Cement and Bushy Park Barbados for their support and I want to give a good accountof myself.”
The championship will start with its four grade series on the South Garda Circuit in Italy into its new season from April 13 to 15, and interest is extremely high and the fields of participants of the other three categories are nearing their limits.
The DKM consists of five racing weekends spread over Italy, Germany and Belgium and after the kick-off in Lonato, the next events will be settled at Wackersdorf, Ampfing, Kerpen, with the final event in Belgian Genk.
Apart from the DKM kick-off, the German Electric Kart Championship (DEKM) will also take place within the framework of the DKM. The first pure Electric-Kart-Racing-Series in the world, it is also enjoying a high interest as all of the 18 available starting positions have already been taken.
