Set for October 15-19, 2014, the Rotax Pan American Challenge will take place at the picturesque GoPro Motorplex facility in the heart of NASCAR country in Mooresville, North Carolina. With the event fast approaching, the MAXSpeed Group and MAXSpeed Entertainment would like to remind teams and competitors about some key and important information.
“We are working extremely hard to ensure that all teams and competitors receive the proper information well in advance of the Rotax Pan American Challenge,” explained MAXSpeed Group’s Josh Smith. “Please find several new pieces of information below as well as some reminders.”
Online registration for the Rotax Pan American Challenge can be found HERE. Online registration will close on October 7, 2014.
*Unofficial practice will be organized by the GoPro Motorplex facility and is not included in online registration.
Registrations are coming in at a steady pace and several of North America’s top teams and drivers have already thrown their hat into the mix. Also, with a recent trip by key MAXSpeed personnel to the Rotax Euro Max event in Salbris, France, several European competitors are planning to make the trek to North American soil and vie for tickets to the 2014 and 2015 Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals.
