Team Australia Arrives in Italy For Rotax World Final

The five members of Team Australia have arrived in Italy ahead of this weekend’s Rotax Max World Challenge Finals to be held at the picturesque La Conca circuit.

David Sera and Troy Woolston will be competing in Senior MAX (this year contested on Maranello RS7 30/32 chassis), Joshua De Maio and Christopher Hays in Junior MAX (on Zanardi KZ2 chassis) and Rick Pringle in DD2 (using CRG Dark Rider 32).

The drivers were given a tour of the La Conca circuit by ex-pat aussie Darrell Smith. Smith (middle person in the pic above) is a test driver and works full time for BRP-Rotax in Austria.

The Team Australia drivers were able to taste the circuit ahead of official practice in hire karts.
All drivers have been registered for the event and are eagerly awaiting the start of official practice on Wednesday. Distribution of karts from the 'raffles', plus fitting of seats, handing out of lead and fuel plus scrutineering of driver apparel will be completed today.
