DATES CONFIRMED FOR 2021 CALIFORNIA ROK CHAMPIONSHIP

Series expands to six rounds, including double-race weekend for third season

ORANGE, CA (December 2, 2020) – The second season for the California ROK Championship was one of multiple hurdles, yet set new records for the young traveling series. The ROK Cup USA regional program had to adapt to the guidelines set out by the COVID-19 pandemic, forcing schedule and location changes. Teams and competitors responded in the positive, setting a new benchmark for entry totals for the program, including a record-setting triple digit mark at the season opener in Phoenix, Arizona.

As the calendar is set to turn on the 2020 season, the focus moves to the upcoming new year of racing. The 2021 California ROK Championship is set to expand to six rounds of racing in five weekends between May and September. A survey sent out to the competitors from the first two years of the program provided the data to expand, along with providing a unique three-day event that will feature two full rounds of racing. The remainder of the five events will focus on the two-day format that includes practice and a full round of racing. Continue reading
