28.5.2013, Belgium

Hi Milena,

Race report from the Second Round of the Belgian Max Challenge at Genk on 19th May.

28 Drivers in Senior Max Class.

Mathias qualified 7th for the Heats in Senior Max Class. In the 10-lap Heats he finished P4 and P7.

That put him sixth on the Grid for the start of the 18-lap Final.

Mathias lost a few places in the first lap of the race.

He recovered well and quickly moved up to sixth place chasing the lead pack of five drivers.

Although we were missing about 1/10 sec. per lap in raw pace his MS Kart Blue Falcon managed to catch the leaders and when the tussle for the win started between the Top 5, Mathias was able to swiftly squeeze past 2 drivers with 3 laps to go. He was able to hold on to 4th place until the finish.

The win was for Dylan Lahaye (GKS-Birel) with Glenn Van Parijs and Michael Cool, both driving a Bouvin Power-Tonykart, finishing P2 and P3.

Mathias is now fifth in the Championship and still in contention for the title, with the next Round scheduled in Kerpen, Germany on 23th June.

I am attaching a few photos of the event.

Kind regards,

Patrick Detige
