Q: Why is it a car race to qualify for a kart race?
A: ROTAXs idea was to ensure we can have a great competition for our existing ROTAX family and new members alike and at reduced complexity and cost. iRacing allowed us to do this whilst providing a good racing experience!
Not all race sims can support many users, or they are very complicated to set up and/or for the non gamer! We wanted to make this attractive to the masses not the select few experts, added to this the fact we can limit tuning options of the car. It will allow us to follow the ROTAX MAX Challenge philosophy of equal opportunity for all with reduced complexity.
 
Q: Is it possible to take part with PS4?
 
Q: Are there any details about times of the event?
A: The servers we will have open for around 5+ hours so people from across the globe can participate, be it early in your morning or late at night? it's not easy to coordinate a global event like this with a perfect time for everybody but we will look to place it at the best time possible for as many people as possible.
An example for qualifying could be European time 3pm till 8pm, this would mean EST 9am to 2pm and Tokyo 10pm to 3am (just as an example) we will monitor the entry list and location and try to accommodate the best we can. Obviously for the race / main event we will have a fixed time so all can participate together.
We will keep you updated about the times on our website and our social media channels.
