Gunskirchen, July 01, 2022 – The Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Festival is back on track! From August 27-28, 2022 the international Micro and Mini MAX drivers meet in Landsard, The Nether-lands at this remarkable event specially initiated for our youngest Rotax racers.

Once a year Chrono Karting BV is organizing and promoting the RMC Grand Festival in collaboration with BRP-Rotax and with their vast experience and perfect combination of racing and leisure, Chrono Karting, creates a special memory for the young drivers from all over the world.

“The RMC Grand Festival is a highlight for the top-motivated kids and the perfect opportunity for the Micro and Mini MAX racers to battle with same aged competitors at a top-level race event in a perfect environment. Our aim is to offer our young racers a playground to gain more experiences at international aligned race events but also to support the community which grows every year”, stated Peter Oelsinger, General Manager BRP-Rotax / Member of the Management Board, VP Sales, Marketing, RPS-Business & Communications. “We are very glad to have Chrono Karting on our side for the organisation and promotion of the event and. The Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Festival 2022 will be an exciting event for all of us.”

Rotax 125 Micro and Mini MAX drivers from all over the world are allowed to participate in this event due to the changed rules by the FIA World Motor Sport Council who announced that drivers, who hold a national license can participate in national competitions outside their home countries (with permission from their local 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 7 to 11 years (driver must have his/her 8th birthday during the year of the event and must have his/her 12th birthday after the year of the event)
Rotax 125 Mini MAX – age of 9 to 13 years (driver must have his/her 10th birthday during the year of the event and must have his/her 14th birthday after the year of the event)

“With the RMC Grand Festival, we are offering a perfect opportunity for the rookies and youngest racers to push their racing experience and to race in a competitive field with other drivers from all over the world. It touches my heart when I see how enthusiastic these young talents are and how much fun they have at the event together with their families and competitors”, said Gaby van de Burgt of Chrono Karting. “It’s not only about racing. We are all part of the big international Rotax family.”

About Rotax MAX Challenge:
The Rotax MAX Challenge (RMC) is a professional kart racing series established, owned and organized by BRP-Rotax, its Rotax kart engine distributors and/or professional race organizers. The RMC is a "one-make-engine" formula: only Rotax kart engines that are checked and sealed for equal performance will be used. The success in the competition is therefore mainly up to the skills of the driver. For more information about the Rotax MAX Challenge or Rotax Karting, please visit http://www.rotax-kart.com/
