Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals set for Bahrain début in 2020

In 2020, the ROTAX Max Challenge Grand Finals will venture into its 11th different country for the 21st running of the event, following on from a fourth visit to Italy in October of 2012 for the 20th anniversary.

This time, the Grand Finals themselves will be held between November 7th and 14th, 2020, with the Bahrain International Karting Circuit being the backdrop for the latest challenge for the best ROTAX racers from across the globe.

The 1,415-metre CIK-FIA homologated circuit has been the host of prestigious events, which included the 2016 FIA Karting World Championships, that were also held under the night time sky. This is along with the Bahrain ROTAX Mojo Max Challenge (BRMMC), which also regularly takes place there.

With 360 drivers from almost 60 different nations forming the international field that were at Circuito Internazionale Napoli in Sarno, the 2020 ROTAX Max Challenge Grand Finals look to be even more of a spectacle than in years past!

“It is a great honour for us to host the 2020 RMC Grand Finals at this prestigious track, which is well- known across the globe. The 2011-opened karting facility fascinates with its world-class, history- making track”, said Peter Ölsinger, GM BRP-Rotax, Member of the Management Board, VP Sales, Marketing RPS-Business & Communications, about the cooperation between BRP-Rotax and the Bahrain International Circuit.

“The drivers of the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals come from all over the world and I am sure that they will enjoy the challenging track in the middle of the desert. It’s not usual to drive in such an exciting and extraordinary surrounding. Beyond that Bah- rain is offering a lot of interesting places and attractions also for our side-events during the RMC Grand Finals and we are glad to welcome the best Rotax drivers of the world in 2020 in this wonderful country.”

 “The Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals are one of the biggest karting events on the global stage and we are honoured to be hosting this prestigious meeting,” added Sheikh Salman bin Isa Al Khalifa, Chief Executive of the Bahrain International Circuit.

“It will bring together 360 drivers from over 60 countries around the world, bringing in hundreds of karting fans into the Kingdom. We are proud that our world-class karting facility is helping to grow young driving talents and this event will further highlight our commitment to enhancing the sport in the region.”
