  1. SUCCESSFUL DEBUT FOR THE RS KART WITH NIELSEN AND THE SCHUMACHER RACING TEAM ON THE PODIUM AT THE DKM FINAL
    SUCCESSFUL DEBUT FOR THE RS KART WITH NIELSEN AND THE SCHUMACHER RACING TEAM ON THE PODIUM AT THE DKM FINAL
    The maiden meeting for the newly launched RS Kart sees the success story continue today, as Nicklas Nielsen came through the highly-competitive field in the senior OK class to be within metres of victory in the final race at Karting Genk. After taking pole position, a frustrating DNF from a puncture and then a qualifying race win at the final round of the DKM German Kart Championship Saturday, the Danish driver climbed five places in race 1 to start out of grid 11 for the last race. Showing the true potential of the RS Kart, he passed another nine drivers to be chasing down the leader as the flag came out. It was an excellent result on the debut of the new brand chassis for the Schumacher Racing Team and adds even more confidence to their preparation for the upcoming World Championships in Sweden. In addition to the celebrations for the first ever podium of the “Red Baron” [as Nielsen calls it], Levi O'Dey fought his way into the top 10 to finish P9 in both of Sunday’s races. Tim Tramnitz had a brilliant day though, coming from last in race 1 to make up 17 places and then stole another 10 to take P7 in the closing race. Teammate Jasin Feratii also had a great afternoon to gain 17 positions collectively and narrowly miss out on being the fourth SRT member inside the first 10 in the DKM category. A double DNF was a disappointing start with the team for Hungarian Zsombor Kovacs, but he’s already focused on the next outing now. Both Jakob Bergmeister in Juniors (DJKM) and Fabio Wagner in the KZ2 Cup class (DSKC) suffered similar bad luck, failing to finish one of their races, but made the most of the better weather conditions on track for some valuable testing in their new RS Kart. #rs #rskart #ralfschumacher #ksm_schumacher #dkm2018

  4. Ralf Schumacher launches RS Kart because “Karting will never be boring”
    Ralf Schumacher launches RS Kart because “Karting will never be boring”
    So says Ralf Schumacher, the former Formula 1 and DTM driver, who gave TKART an exclusive interview on the Kerpen track to present the new kart brand name bearing his initials: RS. Schumacher talked about the new partnership with IPK, sports and professional objectives, but also the world of karting in general and his great passion for this sport. Kerpen: an historical track for the Schumacher family. The occasion is an exceptional one for the whole karting world: after several years as manager and owner of a team, Ralf Schumacher has decided to take another step by creating a range of his own products. In order to do so, he has abandoned the history of collaboration with OTK by establishing a partnership with IPK, the brand that produces the Praga Kart, Formula K and OK1 chassis. “I was looking for a manufacturer flexible enough to allow me to make a product of my own – explained Schumacher. That’s why I chose IPK”. The engines, however, will still be Vortex engines: “They have always been great engines, so … why change?”. However, as for the colour, red, this is a personal choice: “Red, because I always thought that this is the colour that represents racing, apart from Ferrari. Karts have a bit of a vintage look, but they are very recognisable on the track”. With respect to the range of chassis, RS will cover all categories: Mini, OKJ, OK and KZ, although for the latter part of the season the racing team will not yet have drivers in the gearbox class. Moving on to talk more generally about the world of karting, Ralf Schumacher showed how deeply rooted his passion for this sport is, which he has been involved in since he was a child and never abandoned even in the years in which he was a professional F1 driver. “I like karting – he says simply. Also because it is a sport that is never boring: anything can happen at each bend“. But more than that, the motivation that drives Ralf to directly engage and spend all his time and energy on the track is the opportunity to develop younger drivers. To see them get excited and improve day-by-day. Without necessarily needing to get into Formula 1. That is, summing up the concept in Ralf Schumacher’s effective manner: “Take it easy, and love what you do“. Daniel Sliva, CEO of IPKarting, was also in Kerpen together with Ralf Schumacher. He was also very happy about the agreement reached with Schumacher and enthusiastic about the beginning of this new professional adventure.
