ROUND 3 EURO SERIES 2019 – WACKERSDORF GERMANY
The IAME Euro Series heads to the ProKart Raceland venue at Wackersdorf in Germany, in the heart of the Bavarian countryside. As one of the largest circuits in the country,
it’s always a pleasure to return to Stephan Fritsch’s amazing facility and its exemplary staff. The 1222 metre long circuit has recently been resurfaced which adds to the spectacle
and challenge of such an intense venue, and with 8 right handers and 6 lefts with a complex combination of fast sweeping apexes, tight hairpins and varied elevation changes
over the lap keep the teams and drivers guessing throughout the weekend. Add to that an uncompromising weather system that can spring a few surprises over a weekend,
a win here is more than just a trophy – it can teach drivers the lessons they need to become the world’s best racers.
Last year we saw a fabulous contest for the Mini finale which saw Spanish ace Miguel Peiro grab the win and as now that he is fighting at the sharp end in Junior he’s sure to want
to return to a happy stomping ground and win again. Lewis Gilbert took a crucial step towards winning the Euro Series Junior title with a win at Wackersdorf last year,
and will want to keep his winning streak at the circuit strong as a senior. Mark Kimber and Joey van Splunteren – the top two drivers of last year’s title race in Senior – claimed
the top two positions in Germany and will be tough to beat again this season. The spectators are always guaranteed a great show at Wackersdorf, and with a fantastic
on-site restaurant, the indoor karting circuit beside the racetrack and many varied vantage points to observe the action, the German round of the IAME Euro Series has become a firm fan favourite and in 2019 we are sure to witness some great action again.
