Today, ROK Cup Promotions announced that there would be a restructure of the current ROK the Rockies (RTR) format and a new permanent home in Colorado has been found.
ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“Our last event was my first trip to SBR, and the atmosphere there is why I got into this crazy sport in the first place. The track layout is amazing; very technical; lots of elevation change, just a cool old school track. Yes the track has some years on it and needs some improvements but no doubt one of cleanest facilities I have ever been to, to me this shows the dedication to wanting to make it great and we look forward to working with Lee and his teamÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â said Garett Potter, Director of Operations at ROK Cup Promotions.
ROK CUP Promotions, along with its current RTR racers, think changing the structure to include one home track to build from will be much better for the program and easier for racers to attend the events as it is located just 1.5 hours from the city of Denver. Overall the best decision for the series to grow and develop into one of the best club programs in the country.
ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“We have seen great results with the Northern California series at ROK Sonoma and I think SBR has the same potential.ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Potter continues. ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“Our goal across ROK programs like this is to make karting fun again, get back to where it began, encourage current racers from all over the state of Colorado to come see what we have to offer, and most importantly add new racers to our beloved sport. We are constantly learning and adapting our series' to ensure we deliver the best possible offering to the karter.ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â
