Florida Winter Tour 2017 Powered by MAXSpeed Entertainment Registration Now Open

The 2017 karting season is fast approaching, and today marks the opening of registration for the upcoming Florida Winter Tour. Known as the most competitive winter series and attracting talent from around the globe, the 2017 edition will see stops at Homestead Karting, Palm Beach Karting and the Ocala Gran Prix featuring back-to-back weekends of racing for ROK Cup USA and Rotax MAX Challenge classes.

“Our registration system for 2017 has been streamlined and simplified,” explains MAXSpeed’s Race Promotion Director Garett Potter. “We are stoked to get things underway for the new season, which will feature a resurgence of Rotax with the introduction of new components and the debut of the MaxOne by VEGA tires. We are also excited to continue our third year of partnership with OTK and the ROK engine platform. It has been a great success for us both and we are looking forward to many more years to come. New this year, we are also offering the Winter Collective test for both ROK and Rotax at the Homestead facility in December. I think the combination of everything we have to offer in 2017 will be exciting and fun for all our racers.”

The new online registration system can be accessed via the links below:
