The Academy Program
RGMMC’s vision to introduce a high-end, cost-effective karting formula using CIK-FIA homologated equipment stemmed from their commitment to making motorsport more inclusive. Traditional karting can be extremely demanding, potentially excluding talented individuals without significant backing.
Talent identification has always been an integral part of the motorsport ecosystem.
RGMMC’s Academy formula is set to change the paradigm, allowing talented drivers from all backgrounds to participate and compete on equal footing.
Expanding into New Markets
One of the key advantages of RGMMC’s new karting formula is its potential to
expand into new markets. Traditional karting has seen significant growth in established racing regions but has limits to reach emerging markets. With the logistical factors addressed, RGMMC is now poised to make a significant impact in previously untapped territories.
Sustainable GHG Racing
In addition, RGMMC is committed to reducing the climate impact of its events. To
this end, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions will be avoided and reduced with any unabatable emissions to be offset through the purchase of verified carbon credits.
