2018 RMCGF karts lineupConde, Brazil, November 25, 2018 – After few flights problems and delays, Team Canada finally made it to the 2018 Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals (RMCGF) hosted at the International Karting Circuit Paladino of Conde in Paraíba, Brazil. This impressive finale of the karting season sees 360 drivers coming from 55 countries during the 19th edition of this famousrace. The Circuito Internacional Paladino is located in the Northeast of Brazil, a tourist and industrial hotspot, also known for its rich cultural heritage and beautiful beaches. Paladino is a popular choice for drivers as the circuit provides both speed and ample passing opportunities. Saturday drivers registered and discovered the track in rental karts.

Yesterday morning, drivers have been welcome at the track with the amazing line up of 360 brand new Karts from Rotax’s Chassis Partners (BirelART, IPKarting (Praga) and Sodikart) could be seen on the main straight and into the distance up the hill on the circuit. Then took place kart raffle, kart preparation and briefings. After all the hard-work is completed in the paddock, the drivers and their supporters attended the Welcome Party. This party setup the spirit of the Rotax Grand Finals with the presentation of all teams.
