The Circuito Internacional Paladino is located in Conde, Paraíba, in Brazil’s Northeast, a tourist and industrial hotspot, known for its rich cultural heritage and beautiful beaches. Paladino is a popular choice amongst drivers as the track provides good speed and lots of passing opportunities.

The Rotax MAX Challenge (RMC) is a professional kart racing series established, owned and organized by BRP and its Rotax kart engine distributors. Approved by and in compliance with CIK / FIA, the RMC is a “one-make-engine” formula: only Rotax kart engines that are checked and sealed (for equal performance) will be used. The success in the competition is mainly up to the skills of the driver.
