The 2020 edition of the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals will take place on the Kartódromo Internacional do Algarve at Portimão, Portugal, from January 23 to January 30, 2021.
This will allow the promoters to extend the duration of the 2020 season. The new location in Portugal offers favorable weather conditions in January and, with the current outlook, travel possibilities to Europe will also be easier for drivers coming from around the world.
“This unique global situation has forced us to reconsider the annual highlight of the Rotax karting calendar. As organizer of the biggest karting event in the world, our top priority is the health and safety of our drivers, their families, and all team members, as well as our employees and the local organizing staff. We have therefore decided to postpone the RMC Grand Finals until January 2021,” explained Peter Oelsinger, BRP-Rotax General Manager.
“Given the current circumstances, and as far as we can see at the current time, hosting the event in Europe will facilitate organization for the drivers and teams attending, and this is why Portimao in Portugal will be the new venue.”
Further information on the 2020 Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals will follow in due course and is subject to change according to the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Bahrain International Karting Circuit had originally been chosen by Rotax-BRP to host the event, as announced back in January 2020.
