Supernationals Las Vegas – Rotax DD2

Supernationals, DAY 4

Hello Milena,

Today was excellent, Mathias drove a great race to finish a credible 7th place. 

Unfortunately, Mathias had to start mid field 14th, based on points from the 3 wet heat races on Thursday and Friday.

Today, the sun shone for the first time since Wednesday.

So we knew what the dry set up should be from setting fastest times on Thursday morning practice sessions.

Mathias was 5th quickest in warm up.

With the sun out and the track dry, Mathias circulated the track, often times being the fastest.

The MSKart performed well in the trying conditions endured this week.

Thanks to all at the MS Kart factory for producing a quality chassis.

Photos are coming soon.


Supernationals, DAY 3

Hi Milena,

Mathias qualified 10th this morning in very cold and wet conditions.

The first of three heats was also completed this morning. With worsening weather conditions , more rain, the race start was aborted two times, and eventually when the green light came on there was a large crash the immediately bought out a red flag.

Mathias escaped without damage to his kart.

On the restart, Mathias did his best in the conditions, and after being hit off the track two times in the 12 lap heat race, Mathias bought his MS Kart home in 12th place.

Tomorrows forecast appears to be the same as today with heavy morning rain showers.

Kobe and I have some adjustments to make to the chassis to find the grip that Mathias needs for tomorrow.

More tomorrow,


Supernationals, DAY 2

Hello Milena,

A fantastic day for MS Kart today. Mathias was fastest of all in session 1 practice and 2nd fastest in session 2. The last two sessions of today were wet, and we chose to carefully cycle our wet tires for use in qualifying and racing.
Mathias is doing a great job aboard the excellent MS Kart chassis.

We look forward to qualifying tomorrow.


Supernationals, DAY 1

Hello Milena,

Today was the first time on the track for this event.
Mathias used the first two practice sessions to learn the track and give valuable feedback in order to make changes to the chassis to find more speed.
In practice session 3 Mathius was the fastest driver, setting the fastest lap time that stood till the very last timed lap at which time three drivers posted went slightly faster.
Mathias was classified 4th quickest. 
The fourth and final practice session played out the same way with all top 5 drivers trading the fastest lap. Again Mathius ended the session 4th quickest. This is a very good result in consideration of the tough competition we have in this class. 
Tomorrow brings a new challenge for us, because rain is in the forecast. So a new set up will be needed for these conditions.

Looking forward to tomorrow.



Hello Milena,

First of all let me congratulate Peter Bezel with his excellent performances in Senior Max at the Rotax Grand Finals in New Orleans!
With a little luck he could have made the podium, and he set the fastest lap in the Final, didn't he?! Peter is a real racer. It's great to watch him out on track.

From our side we are also very happy with Mathias' sixth place in the DD2-class. It wasn't a track that really suited him, with the heavy kerbs. But he managed the Heats and the Final well I believe.

Now, Kobe and Mathias have arrived in Las Vegas and yesterday they met with Greg. Mathias e-mailed me that Greg had prepared everything perfectly and the kart is ready and that they are looking forward to perform well in the Blue Falcon when Practice sessions start on Wednesday. See attached photo.

Best regards
