Rotax Challenge of the Americas, the premier winter karting series on the left coast, is pleased to announce today the 2016 series schedule. The International Rotax MAX Challenge will again offer the popular three-weekend, six-round championship, with stops in Tucson and Phoenix, Arizona, with the series concluding in Sonoma, California.
“Scheduling is always a challenge in the early months of the year, as MAXSpeed’s Garett Potter and I both go to facilities that have big tracks on site,” comments Rotax Challenge of the Americas promoter Andy Seesemann. “We have to work with each other, as well as work around events that are going on at these facilities, and also other karting events such as the Euro Challenge, which impacts our customers.”
Usually reserving the schedule announcement for the United States Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Nationals event, Seesmann, along with MAXSpeed Entertainment, decided to make the announcement ahead of the upcoming US Open event.
“I usually release our schedule at the US Rotax Nationals, but Garett and I decided to release it at this weekend’s US Open event, since many of our teams and customers are here.”
Getting started a few weeks later than years prior, Rotax Challenge of the Americas customers will be able to enjoy a longer holiday break, as they will head to the Musselman Honda Circuit in Tucson, Arizona for round one in late January. Returning to Arizona for round two in early March, drivers will be put to the test at the Phoenix Karting Racing Association (PKRA) facility. Finally, the series will conclude at the state-of-the-art Simraceway Karting Center in Sonoma, California.
