GALLERIES FROM THE ROTAX MAX GRAND FINALS
This year’s Kartmania show is taking shape as more and more exhibitors sign up for the UK’s only dedicated karting show on Saturday 30th November and sunday 1st December at Silverstone. The show includes exhibitors from across the karting industry and provides a venue for beginners to get kitted out, established drivers to check out the latest developments and for traders and organisers to network. The KartBoot section is where teams and individuals clear out their surplus equipment, from complete karts to washers. You could potentially snap up a bargain kart and accessories, then go to the main show to find everything else you need from the many knowledgable traders, not forgetting the engine importers who will be able to give you the most up to date advice to get you running well.

The 1st Round of the ROTAX MAX CHALLENGE EURO TROPHY comes to Genk.
Belgium, the small country with a tremendous motorsport tradition has hosted the ROTAX MAX Euro Challenge for many years now. Genk Kart Track is a large International Kart track which is situated near Genk in Belgium.It’s without a doubt one of the leading European Kart tracks, hosting a huge number of events throughout the year. It’s a fantastic venue which is centred around the 1350M track, making it one of the longest in Europe. It’s a pretty technical track, with a mix of high, medium and low speed corners.As well as the track the circuit also leads the way with facilities, permanent parc ferme facilities, shower block, Kart shop as well as a two storey control tower and pit building.The 1.350 metres long track at Genk represents one of the most modern karting circuits and provides a huge challenge for the drivers. The highly technical track combines demanding chicanes with high speed passages and requires full concentration at all times. Two long straights make for many overtaking manoeuvres following some challenging hairpins.
The 2nd round of the ROTAX MAX CHALLENGE EURO TROPHY comes to Adria.
Adria Karting Raceway is situated in the Veneto region of Northern Italy along the coast just over an hour south from the ancient city of Venice. Built alongside the car circuit of the Adria International Raceway, it first opened to karting enthusiasts on November 1st, 2014, becoming one of the most modern and technical international kart circuits to date. With a length of 1,302 metres, the CIK-FIA homologated track becomes the second longest on the Rotax MAX Challenge Euro Trophy tour in 2019. Providing some great racing and many overtaking opportunities, the Italian circuit that continues to host numerous international events, has become one of the most popular locations. Unlike all the other venues on the calendar, Adria is a very unique combination of concrete and colour inside the circuit layout itself with extensive run-off areas. The facilities are unmatched by any other in the European series, including a permanent race control room equipped with state-of-the-art digital systems, fully lockable pit boxes along the start-finish straight underneath the hotel apartments overlooking the circuit. There are also other hotel rooms available on the complex, together with undercover parking storage for race transporters, pit garages and a café restaurant.
The 3rd round of the ROTAX MAX CHALLENGE EURO TROPHY comes to P.F.I
For the 1st time ever the Rotax Max Challenge Euro Trophy comes to the U.K.
PF International kart circuit was first opened in 1994 and was, and still is, the brain-child of Mr Paul Fletcher. The circuit is located in the village of Brandon, close to Grantham, in the lovely Lincolnshire countryside.Over the years, PFi has developed and grown and is now recognised as the UK’s premier Karting facility.During 2011, P.F.I saw perhaps it’s largest transformation to date – a track extention that incorporates a bridge with flyover. This sensational new feature has increased the overall track length to 1382m and helped the circuit to secure it’s International ‘A’ grade track licence – the only kart track in the UK to achieve this level. Attaining this grade of track licence has firmly placed P.F.I on the Global Karting scene and has helped to secure several CIK-FIA kart race events to date.
The final round of the ROTAX MAX EURO CHALLENGE comes to Wackersdorf.
The circuit at Wackersdorf is home to one of the top Kart circuits in Europe. ProKart Raceland Outdoor is a very fast 1275M track, and has large run off areas for a Kart circuit. The circuit has not been in use for that long, meaning they were able to use the latest asphalt technology which provides a very grippy surface. It’s used for a number of International Karting events, which in turn means the facilities are some of the best you’ll find in the world of Karting. The length of the track is 1275m and runs in a clockwise direction. The closest hotels are in Scwandorf, 5KM away. Length: 1275m,Direction: Clockwise.
