ROK Cup USA Announces 2017 Race Schedule

Published: Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

DEC 2, 2016 NOTICE: The schedule below is no longer accurate. ROK Cup USA has issued a press release stating that they are reevaulating their 2017 plans based on comments received about this press release.

ROK CUP Promotions is pleased to announce the 2017 ROK CUP USA race schedule. The series will continue with the 2016 format which consists of two regional championships, one in Florida and the other in the Midwest. With last year's growth, ROK CUP USA has decided to expand the Midwest program by adding two additional races to the calendar. Each championship will consist of four rounds, visiting some of the familiar tracks at Florida, Pittsburgh, and Indiana with New Jersey being the newest stop on the circuit. One new feature for this coming year is that both championships will be intertwined for one race in March, which will count towards both championships.

As the regional championships are concluded, the points will merge to welcome all Rokkers to the ROK CUP USA National Final. The race will take place at the renowned Orlando Kart Center in September, and will determine who will be crowned the ROK CUP USA National Champion for the 2017 season. The national champion for each class will earn a fully paid invitation to the 2017 ROK CUP International Final in Italy, which includes entry, kart, pit space, hotel, and airfare.

In addition to the Florida and Midwest Championships, ROK CUP Promotions is bringing back their annual Micro, Mini & Junior EPCOT Challenge for a third year. Drawing in the best young drivers from around the globe to compete for the title of World Champion. Hosted at Orlando Kart Center, young drivers and their families can enjoy their summer holiday in Disney while attending one of the most fun and competitive events of the year. And again, drivers, mechanics, and one guest will be treated to a privately catered Saturday brunch at one of Florida's best restaurants inside Disney's EPCOT.
