2015 GoPro Motorplex Karting Challenge Welcomes the Future with All-New Structure

IAME, Briggs and Yamaha Classes Headline Championship Featuring More Races, More Value

GoPro Karting Challenge logoThe 2015 GoPro Motorplex Karting Challenge season will bring with it several monumental changes. However, the series will stay true to its vision as in years past of providing karting enthusiasts with the most affordable and exciting race program in the region. The goals of the series continue to include building a championship that allows for the best opportunity for full fields and great competition, while remaining budget-minded.

“We have a lot of changes to look forward to in 2015. I think the new Karting Challenge structure really lends itself to what we believe the future of karting to be: Affordability, transparency, value,” said GoPro Motorplex Owner, Justin Marks. “The classes are consistent with growing national karting structures, the power plants themselves are affordable and dependable and a class exists for all budgets and commitment levels. These classes represent a solid foundation for the years to come without the uncertainty of rules and procedural changes. Additionally, the significant financial commitment we’ve made to track improvements and site development will further enhance the experience on-site for all of our loyal karters.”

Some of the significant changes we have made for 2015 include the removal of the Rotax MAX Challenge class structure, Saturday race dates instead of on Sundays, two additional race dates and a modified race-day format that includes two points races per round for just one entry fee and one set of tires. Also, in an effort to make the events more fan and family-friendly, we eliminated the $10 Gate Fee.
