3G Rotax Max Challenge Series logo

The 3G Rotax Max Challenge at Gulf Coast Kartway will begin at the next race on April 13th.  This series will be run in conjunction with our regular race schedule and will span our Spring and Fall seasons.  Dave Pauly with 3G Kart Racing is sponsoring both the series and GCKI.  The goal of the 3G Rotax Max Challenge is to promote Rotax racing in Houston while providing a convenient way for Rotax racers to obtain the punches necessary to qualify for Rotax Grand Nationals.  The series will be comprised of nine race days, two of which will coincide with the BK RMAX series held on the TPKC regional weekend in October.

The dates of the 3G Rotax Max Challenge are as follows:  


  • April 13th
  • May 4th
  • May 18th       
  • June 1st
  • August 10th
  • September 7th
  • October 4-5th (TPKC Weekend)      
  • November 9th

Club trophies will be given at each race for all Rotax classes and Series trophies will be awarded at the annual GCKI banquet.  All 3G Rotax Max Challenge participants must have a Rotax license, engine passport, and conform to all Rotax Max rules to qualify for the series and to receive punches.  If you have questions concerning the series, please contact Dave Pauly at 3G Kart Racing.


The track is closed this weekend April 5th & 6th to karting for the Texas Mini Grand Prix race.

All shifter karts are required to have air boxes per the rules, kart tags should be on all karts running at GCKI, and safety equipment including suit, gloves, neck collar, and helmet are required at all times while on the track, even on non-race days.
