Official timed practice got the fourth Rotax MAX Challenge International Trophy up and running on Thursday at the famous French International Karting Circuit of Le Mans.

July 28, 2022
With two days of practice already under their belt, the new MOJO Racing Tyres were fitted and the laptimes pushed down.
Pole position was taken by Léni Robillot Lagache (FRA) in Micro MAX, Dragos Avasilcutei (AUT) in
Mini MAX, Austin Lee (DEU) in Junior MAX, last year’s Junior Champion Kai Rillaerts (BEL) in Senior
MAX, Antoine Barbaroux (FRA) in the two-speed DD2 class and Vivien Cussac Picot (FRA) in DD2
Masters. There’s a strong local contingent of participants who are already showing their speed.
Once the 244 competitors had set their best lap to qualify in each one of the six Rotax classes, the
initial heat races played out over the demanding 1,368 metre layout, where the drivers began the
battle for the RMCIT title and amazing prizes. These include four RMCGF 2022 tickets to Portimao
this November for the Junior, Senior, DD2 and DD2 Masters categories, two Can AM DS 90 quads for
the Micro and Mini classes, brand new Rotax 125 MAX evo engines, thousands in vouchers for Rotax
parts and accessories, plus the Can Am Ryker along with three Bell helmets to be given away Friday.
Event organisers 3MK in collaboration with BRP-Rotax are pleased to be able to welcome so many
competitors once again from 40 different nations to this special location ‘Where legends are born’.
