Well-known chassis partners will support the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finales 2016 in Italy - The country where the sportmen's hearts beat for karting

Gunskirchen, Austria, March 15, 2016 – BRP’s 17th edition of the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals (RMCGF) taking place at the Circuito Internazionale di Napoli in Sarno, Italy from October 16 to 22, 2016 will be supported by its well-known and long-term chassis partners.

"We are pleased to announce that our longtime business partners BirelART, IPKarting and Sodikart will supply the chassis for the RMCGF in 2016,” said Helmut Voglsam, supervisor of Rotax kart engines. "All of them supported us in the past already.”

During the week-long event 360 chassis will be on the track. BirelART will support the Rotax 125 MAX DD2 and 125 Mini MAX categories. IPKarting provides Praga chassis for the Rotax 125 Junior MAX and 125 Micro MAX classes and Sodikart will support the Rotax 125 MAX class as well as the 125 MAX DD2 Masters category with its chassis.

"Without the outstanding support and effort of our chassis partners, the RMCGF would not be as successful as it is,” said Helmut Voglsam. "We are happy to have them on board year after year.”

Back in Italy for the 3rd RMCGF – after 2008 and 2010 in La Conca the 360 elite drivers of this race, considered to be the crème de la crème in their home countries, will demonstrate their high-class skills and talent battling against some of the most popular names of racing throughout the year.

"Our circuit meets the requirements of the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals perfectly and we are proud to host this prestigious event in 2016," said Giuseppe Sorrentino, race track owner of Page 2 Circuito Internazionle di Napoli. "My team and I are looking forward to welcome all participants and crew to the highlight of the karting season.”

The Rotax MAX Challenge (RMC) is a professional kart racing series established, owned and organized by BRP and its Rotax kart engine distributors. Approved by and in compliance with CIK / FIA, the RMC is a "one-make-engine" formula: only Rotax kart engines that are checked and sealed (for equal performance) will be used. The success in the competition is mainly up to the skills of the driver.
