Over the weekend, MAXSpeed Group announced to its members that the Pan American Rotax Challenge Western United States Qualifier event at The Track at Centennial in Colorado has been cancelled. Due to low pre-registration numbers, the August 12-14 event has been called off. Speaking with a number of industry members, American drivers took advantage of the Canadian Qualifying events to earn their final punches toward the series championship event, where drivers can earn spots to the Rotax Grand Finals in United Arab Emirates.
The following is a statement sent out by the MAXSpeed Group, “Jim Keesling and The Track at Centennial staff were all excited to host this event but due to the circumstances, it was not economical to have this race take place. We are sorry for any disrupted plans that this may have brought upon any team or family. All pre-registered drivers have been accepted as registered for the event and have been informed individually about the situation.
EKN contacted the MAXSpeed Group and confirmed that those drivers who did register will receive the necessary punches to compete at the Pan American Rotax Challenge Championship event at New Castle Motorsports Park in Indiana on September 21-25. Speaking with Pan American Challenge administrator Bill Wright, over 200 drivers from 10 different countries are qualified for the event and confirmed entries are rolling in steadily since official registration opened August 3.
