Last week the mechanics and 4 drivers from the TOM-TECH Racing Team travelled to Italy to visit the Haase factory and for a 3 days testing section at South Garda race track test where on the earlier weekend 2 large events took place, which meant there was plenty of rubber on the track.
"The conditions for testing were great with temperatures around 20°C. There were also a number of teams from the RGMMC competition at the track.
Michaela Engelhard und Tobias Holzhäuser concentrated on the chassis tests for the Rotax Max class and Alexander Möhring and Ole Holzkamm focused on the new DD2 chassis.", according to team boss Thomas Jarzyk.
Michaela Engelhard explained her experiences that week, "The first cooperation with Haase and my new team was great and I am really impressed with the performance. I'd like to thank Jorn and Anna Haase for their support."
It was quickly clear to us which chassis setup was the right one and after each small change the lap times kept dropping.", explained Heinz Holzhauser, Tobias' father. He continued, "We completed a total of 300 laps and didn't come up against any problems."
Alex Möhring's view of the weekend was also positive. "I am really happy with the Haase DD2 chassis. It works well with the new D3 racing tyres. The new brake system is also something special. It is the best I have ever tested. It even lifted me out of the seat towards the steering wheel in some instances. Something that has never happened to me before. I have a lot of appreciation for the Haase engineer Massimo, who designed the new brake system."
Thomas Jarzyk concluded: "This track test was a complete success for the team and the competitors were pretty much astounded. The close proximity of the factory and Jorn Haase's intimate knowledge of karting were great advantages for our testing. Our Team encountered no problems during the test. The performance of our drivers was fantastic and we are really looking forward to the coming season."
