International Kart Council to meet in Cape Town

South Africa is playing host to the 20th annual BRP Rotax Distributors Council, which meets in Cape Town this week.

Key Rotax Distributors from around the globe meet annually with Rotax executives to align market needs with the BRP Rotax strategy for karting. Normally held in Europe, this year sees a change, with South Africa chosen as the Council venue. 

Twelve delegates from the more than 60 distributors around the world are invited to attend from Australia, Asia, Belgium, Canada, Japan, France, Germany, Japan, Portugal and Spain, Southern Africa, the UK and USA. All are longstanding Rotax distributors, circuit owners and promoters of the world-wide Rotax Max Challenge and all provide feedback from their regions. German tyre manufacturer Heidenau, the makers of the Mojo tyres exclusively used in Rotax Max series, will also be represented.

The Rotax team is led by executives Stefan Gruber and Helmut Voglsam, who will both stay on to attend the Rotax African Open event at Vereeniging on Sunday 7 July 2019.

South Africa hosted the 2002 Rotax Max Grand Final at the Zwartkops International Kart Raceway and South African karters have a proud history of success at the Rotax World finals taking no less than 14 titles in various classes in the past two decades.

The hugely popular Rotax Max Series runs at all levels, from club racing, regional and national racing in more than 80 countries today. International events and series such as the Rotax Max International Trophy, Rotax Euro Trophy, African Open and the unique Rotax Max Grand Final – where champions from around the globe are provided with brand new karts, engines, tyres and the rest, to ensure all finalists compete on a truly level playing field.
