Brazil, what a challenge!

The success of the first Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals in South America has allowed Rotax to further raise the bar in organizing its events.

I’s been celebrated in Puerto Rico, Egypt, the United States, even in United Arab Emi-rates, but never in South America. With the 2018 edition of the Grand Finals, Rotax has added another important page to its history.


A “turnkey” competition like the Grand Finals where the end user, the driver, has to think about the race and nothing else, i.e. without worrying about transporting material, assembling structures, and a host of other tasks involves – for the organizer – an additional challenge: transport. Considering the distance, Rotax had to resort to sea transport, which made it necessary for everything to be ready and shipped 5 months in advance of the event. This required impeccable coordination with its technical partners so they too were perfectly aligned with the schedule. Optimization of resources and stable relations with partners did indeed get the 18 containers – with a total weight of 102.5 tons – to Brazil safely and on schedule and, hence, the staging of what was a successful event.

A Paladino transformed during the week

When some of the participants arrived early in the week to the track, various structures such as the press room were not yet completely finished. However, it was amazing how, from one day to the next, the track’s staff was able to turn this around and complete the structure, making it ready to accommodate 2.000+ people. All this, despite the hot temperatures and the wind, did not make life easy for the construction-related workers.
