Another milestone in the longlasting history of Rotax Karting took place this week: the 125.000th edition of a Rotax 125 MAX engine left the assembly line at BRP-Rotax in Gunskirchen, Austria. Introduced in 1997, the Rotax 125 MAX engine can proudly be named a success story.

“When we launched the Rotax 125 MAX karting engine in 1997, we wanted to give the driver more time on the track and less time in the pits,” said Peter Oelsinger, General Manager BRP-Rotax / Member of the Management Board, Vice President Sales, Marketing RPS-Business & Communications. “Since then, the Rotax MAX engines have been setting the benchmark in terms of equal opportunities, reliability, low cost of ownership as well as durability and ease of use. In combination with the Rotax MAX Challenge race series, where the skill of the driver is determining the race success, and the Rotax Life concept for hobby and club racers, we are looking forward to continuing this success story together with our customers”, he added.

The Rotax MAX Challenge (RMC) is a professional kart racing series established, owned and organized by BRP and its Rotax kart engine distributors. In compliance with and sanctioned by FIA Karting and the local authorities, the RMC is a “one-make-engine” formula: only Rotax kart engines that

are checked and sealed (for equal performance) will be used. With an equal technical playing field, the success in the competition is primarily dependent on the skills of the driver. The RMC cumulates in the highlight of the Rotax karting season – the RMC Grand Finals, with approx. 400 drivers on the grid. This year the RMCGF will take place from November 18th-26th, 2022 in Portimão, Portugal.
