Exciting Weekend
Special

The 2016 season will end with two exciting global events on the same weekend in the same country: Italy. Let’s find out more about the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals and the ROK Cup International Finals …


Single make series work well, and these two championships are a practical demonstration: kart drivers from all over the world will race on a levelled field with a reasonable budget and enjoy the thrill of a global competition.
 
In this year the two most iconic single make series in the world have their international finals on the same weekend, in the same country: “rokkers” are racing in Lonato while their colleagues in the Rotax MAX Challenge will hit the renewed circuit in Sarno, both finals are scheduled for the 21st and 22nd of October.
 
Similar concepts, but important differences…
 
Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals 2016
 
The 17th edition of the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals will be held in Sarno on the renewed “Circuito Internazionale di Napoli”. More than 50 countries represented by 360 drivers who will heat up the Italian track to fight for the world title. It’s the third time that Italy hosts the Rotax Grand Finals: in 2008 and 2010 they raced at La Conca.
 
In 1997 BRP launched a new engine for fun driving: the Rotax 125 MAX. Two years later they launched the first national series; the Rotax MAX Challenge, and the year after they introduced the Rotax MAX 125 Junior and organized the first Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals. The Rotax 125 MAX DD2 was introduced in 2002: an innovative engine whose drive system had no chain and a 2-speed gearbox; then in 2004 and 2007 came the Rotax 125 MAX Mini and Micro.
 
This year the final round dedicated to Rotax classes will also open to the Micro and Mini categories, thanks to a recently announced decisions on behalf of the FIA World Motor Sport Council and the CIK to allow younger drivers to race outside their home countries: drivers, who hold a national licence, will be able to take part in national competitions outside their home countries, with the  permission of their ASN and, the RMCGF remains a national competition with international participation, allowing young drivers to participate.
 
Chassis are provided by RMCGF’s tecnical partners: BirelART will support the Rotax 125 MAX DD2 and 125 Mini MAX categories; IPKarting provides Praga chassis for the Rotax 125 Junior MAX and 125 Micro MAX classes, and Sodikart will support the Rotax 125 MAX class as well as the 125 MAX DD2 Masters category with its chassis.

Rok Cup International Final 2016
 
The South Garda Karting circuit will be once again the stage for the Rok Cup International Final that is going to welcome “rokkers” from all the world. The Rok Cup started in 2003 when Vortex decided to set up a single make series for its engines, basing the series on four pillars: easy to use, high performance, low maintenance costs and stable regulations. Right from the first edition, the Rok Cup grew in the numbers of drivers and countries involved, and now the Rok Cup International Final is attended by over 300 “rokkers” from all the continents. It started in Italy and has expanded throughout Europe, then it crossed ocean and reached Africa, Asia, America and Australia.
 
During its evolution, the Rok Cup introduced new engines and categories: the Rok Junior engine was introduced in 2005 and the following year (2006) the Mini Rok and Super Rok engines completed the range. In 2013, they presented the Rok Shifter. Last year the range was completed with the introduction of the 2015 Micro Rok and Rok DVS.
