The 2012 Pan American Rotax Max Challenge structure has been changed from the previous years to assist international participation and continued program growth.
The 2012 Pan American Structure will be as follows:
It will again be a stand-alone, one race championship event, requiring a minimum number of "punch" races to attend. The winner in the Junior Max, Senior Max, DD2 and DD2 Masters classes will each receive a ticket to the 2012 Rotax Max Challenge World Finals.
The Pan Am Championship Event will require a minimum of 6 "punch" races to participate. Punches will be awarded accordingly:
· Florida Winter Tour and Gatorz Challenge of the Americas: Each event weekend will count as one punch
· United States Grand Nationals: This event will also count as one punch
· Any official Rotax Max Challenge race day; USRMC or International, will count as a punch towards the 2012 Pan American Challenge Championship Event.
The 2012 Pan American Challenge Championship Event will once again be an international race. Any properly licensed driver, from any country, who completes the minimum number of "punch" races will be eligible to attend.
The 2012 Pan Am Championship Event will take place on September 20-23, 2012 at a to-be-announced location in the western United States.
2011 Pan Am Administrator Formula Kart Productions will continue as the program administrator for 2012. Bill Wright provided a successful 2011 Pan Am program with impressive growth and we're excited to have FKP back for 2012.
