Henri Möhring already proved that he is in top form this season during his pre-season preparation. Now he also put this performance into practice at the start of the German Mini Kart Championship (DMKM) in Mülsen. After taking the lead on Saturday, however, a pitch-black Sunday followed.
 The hard work of the past weeks seemed to pay off for Henri Möhring.

In the Arena E in Mülsen (Saxony), 28 junior drivers competed in the Mini class. Henri was already one of the favorites in advance and lived up to this role. He took pole position in qualifying and defended this position throughout the heats. “Leading the field at the halfway point is a good feeling. I want to continue like this in the final tomorrow,” said the nine-year-old ADAC Hessen-Thüringen e.V. protégé.

On Sunday morning, the weather showed its better side. After heavy rain and cool temperatures the day before, some of the sun came out and Henri was in a great mood. In the Super Heat, which determines the starting grid for the final, he was in the thick of the action and led the race in parts. However, a broken wheel star involuntarily stopped the Hessian. “This defect only happens very rarely, but it threw us back to eleventh place,” said Henri, looking at the starting grid for the final.

However, he made up ground straight away with a good start and was already fifth. But a driver spun in front of him and Henri had to swerve through the grass. However, he got stuck with his kart and the engine failed to start – the second retirement in a row. A bitter setback for the youngster from the TB Racing Team after a strong Saturday. Now it’s time for him to tick off and look ahead. In ninth place in the championship standings, everything is still possible.

In just three weeks’ time (May 10-12), there will be the next opportunity in the DMKM. The racing series will then make a guest appearance in Ampfing, Bavaria, the southernmost stop on this year’s racing calendar.
