With a little more than a week to the official start of the Rok Cup Singapore 2018, scheduled for March 24th at KF1, let's take a closer look at one of the Far East's most interesting Vortex series for the kart market.

Motorsport enthusiasts know Singapore, of course, thanks to the F1 GP being run there since 2008. More experienced fans, however, also link the city-state south of Malaysia to the KF1 Karting Circuit.

It is thanks to this circuit, in fact, that the development of karting in the country has undergone a rapid acceleration and expanded, enough to convince Rok to dedicate a series of its own single-brand.
The Rok Cup Singapore runs in five stages at KF1, used anti-clockwise on the first three occasions, and clockwise in the last two.

The racing weekend will follow a two-day format: the first dedicated to tests; the second to the final phase with Qualifying, Heats, Pre-finals and Finals.

There are five categories: Mini Rok (7/13 years), Junior GP (11/15 years), Senior GP & GP Open (from 14 years) GP Master 30/40/50, in age-related tranches, and, KF1 Rok & Rookie (from 12 years). A technical note for Junior and KF1 Rok: in Junior, the karts will be powered by a Rok GP engine, the same as Senior, but with the Junior flanged exhaust manifold; in KF1 Rok, there will be a restrictor to the Senior-type collector.

Of an international nature the value of the prizes for the Mini classes: the first two drivers receive an invitation to the Rok Cup International Final in Lonato, while Junior and Senior winners will be part of the Asian "expedition" to South Garda Karting. Rich cash prizes are reserved for the top 5 teams of the Teams ranking. 

The calendar:

Round 1: 23/24 March
Round 2: 20/21 April
Round 3: 1/2 June
Round 4: 13/14 July
Round 5: 10/11 August
