As per usual, the largest starting field within the RMC Euro Trophy for the opener is represented by the Senior MAX class with around 60 drivers, where the racing is always expected to be of the highest level. In addition, 40 juniors will battle it out in Genk including some rookies to the international scene. The 2-speed DD2 class has close to a full grid alongside an experienced line-up of DD2 Masters. There are 29 youngsters racing for the honours in the Mini MAX category with a slight variation in the rules for the 2022 series.
Drivers of the Rotax Project E20 E-Kart classes will bring the latest eTechnology from BRP-Rotax back the RMCET. The new E20 Junior category makes its welcome debut to join the E20 Senior category that we saw in 2021 at the championship. The E-Kart racers will compete on the demanding Genk track, as they apply their skills to experience the exhilaration of strategic racing with the E20’s boosted performance!
Of course, many participants of the RMCET this weekend will be focused on the biggest prize in the end – to win the coveted tickets for the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals 2022, which will take place in late November in Portimao, Portugal. In the Mini class, however, the overall winner will receive a ticket for entry to the RMC International Trophy at Le Mans after the rounds in Genk, Val d’Argenton and Mariembourg.
The races in Genk can also be followed online via the link at www.rotaxmaxchallenge-eurotrophy.com. The event will be broadcast live from Friday afternoon. Following the qualifying heats on Saturday, the 36 best-ranked drivers in each class will contest two finals that award equal points to determine the round winner and podium places.
