Exciting afternoon with Formula 1 atmosphere
On 30 May Brantner Transport GmbH welcomed invited loyal customers to the classic Brantner Kart Trophy for the second time at the company's location in Krems.
With a racing circuit which was over 500 metres long around the company premises, a total of 27 customer and sponsor teams with 84 drivers offered their families and friends an exciting race and had everyone on the edge of their seats with what were often daring overtaking manoeuvres and spectacular duels.
Cheered on by over 200 spectators the two Voest teams clinched 1st and 2nd places in the end, followed by Hofbauer Racing from the "Masters" group. In the "Sport" group victory went to Team Brucha Logistik, followed by Sunpor-Kartteam and Exterstahl. The fastest male driver was Martin Mirlic of Masters Team Voest, the fastest female driver was Barbara Strasser-Zelle of Team Vöslauer.
The drivers were fair and considerate at all times despite the keenly contested battles. The women-only team "Brantner High Speed Mädels" headed by team manager Jennifer Wandl was proof that kart racing is not only a sport for men. The three women on the team proved to be serious opponents for their male counterparts and received a special prize in recognition of their achievements. Katharina Engelbrecht also clinched 2nd place in the classic "Women's Race"!
