Today, the relationship will take the next step as the MAXSpeed Group, the administrator of the United States Rotax Max Challenge, has announced that eKartingNews.com will now be the program’s ‘Official Online Media Partner’. The new association will see added exposure and editorial content focused on Rotax Max Challenge platform on EKN as the two forces join to grow and support the sport of karting.

The U.S. Rotax program has always been a supporter of EKN, and we felt it was time to take the relationship to a higher level. As the Rotax MAX Challenge becomes a larger force in the world of karting, we felt that the increased viewership of EKN followers was key to the growth of Rotax in the United States.”
