Everything is under frenetic preparation in D4S Motorsport factories for the next winter Ice Series International Championship. The incredible prototype based on the WRC Citroen DS3 is actually collecting all the latest racing technologies as nanotechnology surface engineering , additive manufacturing made Dr. Eng. Sergio Durante titanium sequential gearbox , lithium batteries and Inconel exhausts , and a full composites body .

960 Kg, 450 HP, four wheel drive. Such an advanced technologies will be hardly tested by an exceptional famous driver, the WRC star Armin Schwarz that will share the driving wheel with the other top drivers in the most important races of the 2016 Championship.

D4S DS3 Prototype and Sergio Durante won the Championship 2017

Very tactical and complex race during the weekend!

On Saturday night the rough circuit conditions were excellent for Sergio Durante and the Dr. Eng. Sergio Durante Motorsport Citroen DS3 that delivered the first time in the official qualifying.

The day after in the flat cold ice the performances of the prototype were again extremely convincing, permitting Sergio to gain a second position on the King of Masters race that gave him enough points to succeed in the Championship after a breathtaking duel against the new Italian Champion Alessandro Pettenuzzo.

Karting World Championship

Karting is considered to be the first stepping stone for young drivers aspiring to reach the highest levels of motor sport, or simply hoping for a career as a racing driver.

While the vast majority of current (and past) F1 drivers came from Karting, it has grown racing talents that populate a wide variety of racing disciplines, such as the FIA World Endurance Championship, which is the basis of the 24 Hours of Le Mans classic each June.

Dr. Eng. Sergio Durante Motorsport decided to give a closer look at the discipline, and, as usual, exploit the opportunity to tests some technical advanced solutions, like a nanocomposite damping coating and some special components, in collaboration with the Spanish Team Jamkart.

The event was held at the extraordinary “Le Mans Karting International.”

Nearly 200 drivers descend on Le Mans, no doubt drawn by the prospect of competing at Le Mans.

They were representing a remarkable 42 countries and did battle in front of a big crowd that will include FIA President Jean Todt.

We participated with a test driver in the KZ, which is the advanced category for gearbox karts – it was previously called Super ICC and KZ1. Since its inception in 2010, KZ has attracted some of the most promising young drivers before they take the next step to single-seater racing.

Hill Climbing Strategy 2018-2019 European Championship

Dr. Eng. Sergio Durante decided the development of a totally innovative hybrid prototype for hill climbing races. The car is under construction and it will be ready for first tests in the end of the 2017. This crazy powerful car will sport almost 1000HP for a 800kg of weight.

In the meantime the Dr. Eng. Sergio Durante Porsche Proto in the picture won its category at the European Hill Climbing Championship in Otaly in the Cesana Sestriere Challenge

D4S success at the Ice Challenge 2018

D4S had the best result at the international Championship Ice Challenge 2018, bringing two cars at the highest place in the podium.

The Citroen DS3 Proto by D4S gained the overall championship, driven by our driver/engineer Sergio Durante.

The D4S HybridSport gained the championship dedicated to the alternative/innovative energy cars, the series 10.

A huge thanks is for our great Cristiano Cedrino and Luca Oggero, super race technicians, …. and to the fantastic work of all the engineers and technicians of DIAD Group and D4S Motorsport that prepared two crazy cars, the winning ‘rocket´ DS3 and the unbelievable powerful HybridSport with Efesto and 3Y Technology.

A big thanks is for all the people of the organisation BMG: they organised a great international Championship with more than 50 drivers, where they perfectly merged professionalism and friendly environment…. which is very, very rare today…
