Founded in 2020, the association of e-kart tracks in Germany, E-KART International, is organizing a race of its “Long Distance Cup” this Saturday (27 August) at the Nettedrom e-kart facility in Osnabrück (Lower-Saxony). The Long Distance Cup, whose inaugural race took place in March at the Ecodrom in Neu-Ulm (Bavaria), is regarded in the industry as one of the largest mass sporting events of its kind.
The participants travel for the races partly across Germany. On Saturday, up to 13 teams will be competing for points in the overall ranking – so far, four races have been completed in the series, with the fifth race taking place at the Nettedrom. The last three races of the season will be held in Kiel, Munich and Frankfurt until November.
“We are delighted to be part of the Cup with our Nettedrom, which will be held at a total of eight locations in Germany and Switzerland until November,” says Wolfgang Hermle, Head of Baths & Leisure at Stadtwerke Osnabrück. “The field of participants is indeed driving at a different level than the drivers who normally do their laps at Nettedrom. That’s why it should be interesting for visitors to come and watch the race here,” says Hermle, who is also Vice President of the industry association.
Utilizing synergies, pooling expertise and working together to successfully develop the e-kart tracks – that’s the association’s goal. Find out more about the still relatively young association and its origins in our detailed article in EAP issue 1/2022. (eap)
