Rotax MAX Challenge

Gf 068

Every year, the world’s most talented pro racers across the globe compete in a race series focused on perfect parity – the Rotax MAX Challenge (RMC). The RMC creates opportunities for kart racers of all ages as they race their way to a ticket to the season’s highlight, the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals.

Why join the Rotax MAX Challenge?

  • More track time

    At the core of all RMC race events stand the unique benefits of Rotax 125-ccm engines that inspired us to create the RMC – low cost of ownership, easy maintenance, and excellent reliability.

  • Showcase your skills

    As a single-brand race series RMC is designed to ensure the parity of karts and race procedure in a way that puts the driver and their skill front and center.

  • Racing for all ages

    Each season, over 7,500 active Rotax MAX drivers from 8 to 60+ years of age compete at the national and international level .

  • Consistent regulations

    The Rotax MAX Challenge race series comes with its own set of CIK-FIA-compliant regulations. Despite minor deviation to accommodate local needs, RMC regulations apply to all RMC events.

In the pole position for carbon-neutral karting

E-racing events featuring the Rotax E20 e-kart are growing more popular every day. Who could honestly say no to a boost button, a brandnew racing experience, and an acceleration from 0 to 100 kmp in 3.5 seconds? Many RMC events now include E20 races in two categories, E20 Junior and E20 Senior, and a chance to win one of 36 RMC Grand Finals tickets. Not every E20 event offers a qualification opportunity for the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals, but they do give racers a taste of the future of kart racing. Part and parcel of the E20 event package is the appealing arrive & drive treatment. Forget about transporting your kart, reparis or tuning, just bring your gear and helmet. With arrive & drive, you climb into your waiting E20 E-Kart and focus on racing.
