“We are happy to have Chrono Karting on board which brings vast experience in organizing high-quality racing series and events,” stated Peter Oelsinger, General Manager BRP-Rotax / Member of the Management Board, VP Sales, Marketing, RPS-Business & Communications. “We are confident that the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Festival will be a very attractive race event for the Rotax Micro and Mini class and we are looking forward to continuing our success in the Rotax MAX Challenge.”
The new Rotax Grand Festival will take place from August 22nd to 23rd, 2020 at the Circuit de Landsard track in Eindhoven, in the Netherlands, and will allow a maximum of 72 participants in each of the two categories – Rotax Micro MAX and Rotax Mini MAX. The Rotax Micro MAX and Mini MAX youngsters will drive with their own equipment, sealed Rotax engine and chassis. A total of one Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals ticket per class will be awarded to the winner in both of those classes.
“We are excited to be organizing the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Festival in 2020. It is a new start for this event and it will be our objective to provide our younger drivers with a fun, professional and highly competitive racing event,” said Gaby van de Burgt of Chrono Karting. “Among the youngest drivers, there is an increasing interest to participate in additional events outside their own national series. To have the opportunity to experience the world of international-style racing, where drivers can drive in a competitive field, makes the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Festival even more attractive. In this special environment, children have the ideal chance to realize how they can also progress in motorsport.”
Rotax 125 Micro and Mini MAX drivers from all over the world are allowed to participate in the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Festival. The FIA World Motor Sport Council announced that drivers who hold a national license are allowed to participate in national competitions outside their home countries, provided they have permission from their ASN. As the Rotax Grand Festival is a national competition with international participation for these two categories only, the age limits are as follows:
- Rotax 125 Micro MAX – age of 8 to 11 years (8th birthday in 2020)
- Rotax 125 Mini MAX – age of 10 to 13 years (10th birthday in 2020)
BRP-Rotax would also like to take the opportunity to thank all previous organizers and hosts for their efforts in building up this exciting RMC event. More details and information about the RMC Grand Festival 2020 will be announced soon.
