Raceday at the Kartpalast Bergkirchen!

For winner Andreas and companion Mike, the time had finally come on 1 May 2023: they were allowed to compete against FIA Formula 3 driver Sophia Flörsch in a 1:1 duel on the kart track.

After a short introduction in the morning, it was finally off to kart track 3, much to the delight of Andreas and Mike, both of whom are enthusiastic kart drivers themselves and big fans of Sophia. They even had their own equipment. So nothing could stand in the way of a successful race.

After a short introduction about the kart and the race track, the time had finally come: everyone took a seat in their kart and prepared for the fast-paced race. One after the other, the race got underway. After the first practice laps and qualifying, both winners were able to demonstrate their talent behind the wheel and stayed close to Sophia.
After six laps, it was race time! 18 laps in a 1:1 duel against Sophia - pure adrenaline.

As quickly as Sophia overtook you, she was gone again! It was amazing how dynamically she almost "floated" over the track!

But here, too, Andreas and Mike kept a cool head and delivered top performances on the track! So Sophia won at the end of the race, but both winners had a neck-and-neck race, which was only decided by milliseconds.
It was a super fair race and everyone was able to show their best performance!

After the exciting race, great souvenir photos were taken on the track. Sophia took a lot of time for both winners and inspired everyone with her great open manner.

Together we went to the Bavarian Stüble, a small restaurant in the Kartpalast. Here, too, interesting conversations took place, Sophia's questions were answered and great pictures were taken.

Winner Andreas even got a miniature version of Sophia's old car originally signed and this will definitely find a place of honour at his home.

We thank you Andreas for your donation to the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, which supports programmes that teach disadvantaged children the values of sport: Fairness, consideration, respect and responsibility.

So giving is rewarded - in all directions!

A big thank you also from your VIPrize team. It was great that we were able to experience this event together with you and Sophia and that we had a great morning!

We hope you will never forget the experience at the go-kart track.
