This weekend the ROTAX Max Challenge International Trophy will take place at the Circuit Alain Prost in Le Mans, France. A legendary track from the 1970s-1990s can claim to have seen the future stars of motorsport in their infancy at several World Karting Championships. Ayrton Senna in 1978, Michael Schumacher in 1985, Jarno Trulli in 1991, as well as Giancarlo Fisichella, Jos Verstappen, Allan McNish, Emmanuel Collard, Benoit Treluyer and Sebastien Bourdais who became famous among others on 1172m of the Alain Prost Circuit.
The ACO decided to revive the glorious past with the creation of the circuit Le Mans Karting International in 2013, a long track of 1384m which meets the current safety standards of the CIK-FIA. The site has ultra-modern infrastructure, both for the management of the competition and for hosting the public. Fast, spectacular and technical, the Le Mans Karting International circuit has the distinction of running in the anti-clockwise direction, an additional physical challenge for the drivers. The new layout and organization of the Association Sportive Karting ACO have already been proven with the 24 Hours Karting races and many regional, national and international events.
Convinced by the quality of Le Mans Karting International circuit, 3MK Events in collaboration with BRP-Rotax will organize the 2019 RMC International Trophy. Nearly 300 drivers from all over the world are expected at Le Mans.
