New Mach1 2015 now available, the Kart that has been taking the Iame X30 grids by storm with Numerous podiums already in 2015. Complete Rolling Chassis only £2495.00 plus Vat.
At the end of the year 2014, Mach1 Kart was able to look back on a successful season and is already working on the continuation of this in the future. In addition to a new chassis called Mach1 FIA5, the Swabians presented a brand-new brake system for the shifterkart classes and numerous detail improvements regarding the attachment parts.
The year 2014 has been a good one for the German chassis manufacturer. The team from Meimsheim was able to impress nationally as well as internationally and celebrated a huge success due to the X30 Shifter overall victory at the X30 International Final in Le Mans. Additionally, they achieved second place at the KZ2 EM-run in Wackersdorf. At the German Shifterkart Championship, the team drove in the forefront as well.
Mach1 Kart wants to grow further next season and is creating the basis for this with the newly homologated chassis FIA5 A01. The model was developed completely new with help of modern computer simulation and has been optimized during numerous test drives. It has got an even better handling than its forerunner – also new are CNC-routed aluminum pedals and lighter cover parts.
After first test drives Martin Hetschel was excited about the performance: “A really great chassis. The kart is even easier to drive and provides a high precision on varying grip conditions.”
With the biggest and probably most competitive grids of X30 that the UK has seen
the MLC Motorsport team had a strong line up in both the junior and senior class.
“We had every confidence in our preparation for this race off the back of our senior
victory the month earlier, but it’s always going to be tough against this type of
competition, it was not you average small club grid so competition would be strong”
35 juniors lined up for timed qualifying and MLC pair Cameron Boedler and Jake
Bowman both only doing two days ever at the track nearly secured a front row lockout
for the team eventually ending on pole position and fourth respectively
In the pre final both juniors were running in the top three from the 34 kart field
unfortunately towards the end of the race Bowman suffered some damage and dropped to
10th with Boedler holding strong for 2nd to start his first ever UK race and first
race at PFI ever on the front row.
In the final Boedler drive away with the lead pack of 5 ending in a great battle in
the last few laps eventually finishing 3rd. Bowman was not so lucky getting caught
in huge crash first lap ending the expected charge back to the front.
In seniors it was not as plain sailing an engine misfire meaning senior driver Ollie
Varney had to make a charge from the back in the final carving through the quality
field to eventually bag a another podium for the team. Making it a double podium for
the MLC team in the best grids so far the UK has seen.
With 2014 drawn to a close the final round of the Whilton Mill Championship saw the MLC completely dominate the senior x30 class. with 1st and 2nd in the final, with Josh Hatton and Max Clarke. This in itself was not the dominating part, the domination came in being 1.5seconds faster than the closest finishing non MLC driver. We think this to date is the most convincing win the class has seen since its start in the UK.
As 2014 drew to its close and most teams were still eating mince pies, the MLC team went to PFI for some testing the weekend before the first round of 2015. This proved great preparation and after lots of hard work from the team, we again took the Win in senior x30 with new signing Ollie Varney, beating some very good drivers including a world champion. Once again also getting the fastest lap along the way!
A year on from the First Iame X30 race in the UK, where we finished second and this year taking the win, is a credit to everyone involved, by getting involved early in the class we have proved to stay ahead of the pack.
Not only that but new to the team Junior Driver Jake Bowman had a great day finishing 8th in his first ever race in X30 and first ever race at Pfi great things to come from him later this year.
