Portimao (P) Saturday 1st December
One of the most important karting events of the season is currently underway in Portugal. The 13th Rotax Grand Finals is once again well above and beyond all expectations on the superb setting of the Circuito Internacional do Algarve in Portimao.
The brilliant show offered both on and off the track gets better and better every year, and the interest that it generates is quite outstanding even more so at a time of crisis and uncertainty in our sport (economic and political). To make an example, there are 147 accredited media operators from all around the world.
This time, the US is the largest delegation, a sign that the Rotax program is receiving a huge boost from the other side of the Atlantic.
Time for racing. The prefinals are currently taking place (you can follow the Live broadcast on http://rgf-2012.kart-data.com) and the top qualifiers after Friday’s heat session were Bruno Borlido from Portugal in Junior Max, Pierce Lehane from Australia in Senior Max, Ben Cooper from the UK but racing for Canada in DD2, and Cristiano Morgado racing for South Africa in DD2 Masters.
Don’t miss the finals starting from 13.30 with the support class Micro Max
