Rotax Trophy Series East launched

The program will continue to be highlighted with only two days of official race activity alongside the unmatched one engine and one set of race tires program.

The 2021 calendar year will mark the expansion of the Rotax Trophy series across the United States while maintaining the focus of a localized structure. The first of three series to be launched in 2021 will be the Rotax Trophy East program, which will build from the successful 2020 campaign and enjoy a fourth round of action-packed racing for the new year. The program will operate as a near mirror to the Trophy series from 2020 while providing added value across the entire event structure alongside an increased RMCGF ticket allocation to series champions.

“The renewal and expansion of the USA Trophy series program is something we are excited about as well as firmly behind as we continue to create growth and stability in the market. With a difficult landscape in 2020 we achieved success across all markets as we are seeing competitors returning to high performance and enjoyable racing with the lowest-cost of ownership in the market provided directly through our Rotax platform.”

The program will continue to be highlighted with only two days of official race activity alongside the unmatched one engine and one set of race tires program. The sporting and technical regulations for 2021 will align with those form 2020 and with the continuation of the very popular high-grip and long lasting MoJo tires the competition will prove to be intense and cost effective for all who attend.

“We will roll out all the details in the coming weeks on the RaceRotax webpage to ensure over the holiday season all competitors can plan and prepare for a great season of racing. With continued commitment from both USA distributors and BRP-Rotax the future of karting has never looked more promising.”

The Rotax Trophy Series East program dates and venues follow with the locations of rounds three and four under final contract and ready to be announced in the very near future.
