Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals
The Grand Finals Comes To The U.S.A.!
The MAXSpeed Group is excited to finally announce that the 2013 Grand Finals will be coming to the United States.
The event will be held November 13-16 at the karting facility at the NOLA Motorsports Park, just outside New Orleans.
"This event has been our primary focus ever since we started handling the distribution of Rotax products in the United States," said MAXSpeed president Richard Boisclair. "For the last two years, everyone at The MAXSpeed Group, NOLA Motorsports Park and BRP-Powertrain have been working very hard to make this happen."
For BRP-Powertrain's Robert Gumpenberger, this announcement is also the realization of a goal. "It has always been our desire to have a Grand Final in the United States. But the time and conditions have never been right," said Robert. "But now, with the efforts of The MAXSpeed Group, I believe now is the correct time for the Grand Finals to be hosted in America. We are all looking forward to a very special event in New Orleans."
