Save the Date for the Rotax US Trophy Final 2022

With a total of twelve Rotax Grand Finals tickets at stake, we are pleased to announce the Rotax US Trophy Final event to be held during the weekend of October, 7th to 9th, 2022. The event will be operated by J3 Competition and will take place at the renowned New Castle Motorsports Park capping off the 2022 ticket season of Rotax Racing in the United States.

“With the heightened 2022 Rotax program continuing to expand across the United States everyone on the Rotax team is excited to have this event end our 2022 season.  We continue to see growth on our localized and regional platforms across both the Northern and Southern regions which is creating strong momentum and excitement for the brand as well as the US Trophy Final event.” – Justin Stefani

The US Trophy Final will be highlighted with optional practice on Thursday, October 6 followed by official practice starting on Friday, October 7.  The event will continue with a similar platform utilized in both the Trophy East and West series with two days of official race activity commencing on Saturday, October 8 and concluding with one final on Sunday, October 9.

A major interest for many competitors is the overall prize package as well as the Grand Finals Ticket allocation.  With the final prize package still being finalized the Grand Finals Ticket allocation follows:

Micro Max (1 Total Ticket)

  • 1 Ticket Highest Placing Trophy East or Trophy West Driver

Mini Max (3 Tickets)

To be qualified as a Trophy East or Trophy West driver, competitors must compete in all events in either of the two series. The remaining Open* ticket is reserved for competitors of any nationality, thus providing an additional opportunity for any Trophy East or West competitor. The winners will be crowned on Sunday October 9 and receive their official tickets and prize package to compete at the 2022 Grand Finals in Portimao, Portugal.

With a realignment of the Trophy West Series and the Trophy East series stage already set, competitors looking to compete in either series can map out their journey to the US Trophy Finals with clarity. Both series will be a continuation of the facilities and staff from 2021. The US Trophy Final event along with both the East and West series will see the return of Mike Edwards and Tim Hannen managing both the technical and sporting regulations, thus ensuring a continuation of high quality and consistency within the platform.
