RMC Romania off to a flying start in 2023

Columns: Races
The Rotax MAX Challenge Romania 2023 really got off to a flying start at AMK Bucharest over the weekend of Max 6th - 8th.

There was just one short of 60 drivers lining up on the start grid in the four Rotax MAX categories which included Micro MAX, Mini MAX, Junior MAX and Senior MAX. This year, the series again has some new youngsters participating for the first time in Micro- and Mini MAX. The RMC is together with several other classes making up the Romanian National Championship.

Micro MAX
1st – Igor Racianu - CRG Romania, second year in the Micro class.
2nd – Andrei Margescu - Formula K RO
3rd – Sergiu Popa - A.C.S.ICS Racing

Mini MAX
1st – Matei Popescu - CRG Romania, moving up from Micro MAX this season.
2nd – Ciprian Ionita - CRG Romania
3rd – Cristian Popa-Comaniciu - Roadrunner

Junior MAX
1st – Mircea Marco Patru - Sibiu Racing Team, last year’s vice champion and aiming for the RMCGF 2023 ticket to Bahrain this December.

The invitation race welcoming international competitors to join the Romanian event takes place from July 14 to 16 this year at the 1,640-metre-long Skat Kart in Targu Secuiesc of the RMC Transylvanian Trophy. It forms a mandatory event for the RMC participants in order to qualify to be in the running for the Grand Finals tickets. They can drop the lowest scoring points of the other six races in the championship. There are lots of reasons to visit Romania for the summer event, apart from the racing on the fast and flowing circuit: prizes include a lottery with 500 euro in Rotax spare parts, XPS products and even more to be announced in the lead up to the competition. At this stage, entries have already been received from other countries and they’re looking forward to see drivers from Moldavia, Ukraine and Bulgaria who have secured their place on the grid. 

“I am happy with the interest we have from the number of competitors racing at the Rotax AMX Challenge this year. It’s an encouraging start to our season,” says Viorel Nicoara, Authorised Rotax Distributor for Romania. “Everybody is also welcome to join us here in Romania this July for the RMC Transylvanian Trophy to enjoy our great event and the local hospitality. There is a lot to see and do too, including visiting the amazing Dracula’s Bran Castle along the way from my home city of Sibiu and some very nice villas available to relax during their stay. They should note too that we will host any of the Rotax MAX classes on the program according to our sporting regulations. I’m also more than pleased to offer some suggestions for their travel plans for anyone who is interested too.”
