Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals

The Rotax® MAX Challenge™ is the most internationally recognised kart racing series in the world. Over 15,000 Rotax racers across more than 60 nations participate in events, like Australia's Rotax Pro Tour, to qualify for the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals.

In the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals the same chassis, tyres, fuel and Rotax engines are used in each racing class, meaning that each participant has an equal chance of becoming the World Champion. The Grand Finals recognises five classes:
 

  • Rotax 125 Micro MAX (7-9 years of age)
  • Rotax 125 Mini MAX (9-12 years of age)
  • Rotax 125 Junior MAX (13-16 years of age)
  • Rotax 125 MAX (15 years and older)
  • Rotax 125 MAX DD2 (2 speed gearbox – 15 years and older)
  • Rotax 125 MAX DD2 Masters (2 speed gearbox – 32 years and older)


The RMCGF are unique, as driving ability is all that counts. The most talented drivers in the world are competing against each other in this unrivalled event, demonstrating their excellent driving skills.
 
For many, it is the ideal first step into a career in motor sports. Drivers as young as 13 years old are taking part in the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals and gaining international racing experience in the junior class. A large number of current Formula 1 drivers started with Rotax engines; Jenson Button and Kimi Räikkönen among them.
