Entry List, Time Table & Other Details for Rotax World Final

  8 November 2012

Rotax has released the entry list and draft timetable for the 2012 Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals. For the second time, Portugal is hosting the event which will take place at the Portimao Karting Circuit, one of the sport’s best venues and also one of the most modern of its kind.

Rotax advise that everything is in place to welcome the Grand Finals and they will ensure that all participants will have an identical chance to fight for victory.

To get a feel for the logistics involved, here are some numbers:

  • An organizing team of 100 people, from 10 nations
  • 150 hours of engine dyno testing
  • 276 drivers from 60 countries for the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals (plus 34 youngsters who will compete in the supporting national event on December 1 in the Rotax 125 Micro MAX class)
  • 75 tonnes of equipment
  • 13 trucks to transport equipment (trolleys, tools, engines, fuel, office equipment, etc.)
  • 330 Rotax engines, plus some 300 chassis provided by our different chassis partners (Birel, MACH 1, Haase and Sodi, plus Praga for the Rotax 125 Micro MAX race)
  • 1,000 sets of tires
  • 3,500 hours of preparation work.

The event will be attended by some 1,500 people (drivers and their families, mechanics, chassis staff, BRP-Powertrain staff, etc.), while 50,000 people are expected to follow the action on the internet (Twitter, Facebook, live timing, etc.). Analysts predict it will generate a direct profit of €3.5 million, plus collateral profits in excess of €400,000, for the Algarve region.

There are 12 Australians set to compete in the event:

  • Daniel Rochford, Joseph Mawson and Pierce Lehane in Senior MAX (class chassis - Sodi)
