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
