Florida Winter Tour Sets Collective Test at Homestead for December 17-18

Preparations for 2017 MAXSpeed Entertainment promoted events are well underway, and today the largest karting promotion company in the world is pleased to announce a new Official Winter Collective Test. Set for December 17-18 at the Homestead Karting facility in Homestead, Florida, participants will be able to prepare, practice, test & tune in advance of the 2017 Florida Winter Tour on the same track configuration as Round 1.

“The teams and dealers came together, and asked for a way to help the South Florida karting community and give Florida Winter Tour participants a chance to practice and test at a race track with similar rubber conditions to race-week,” explains MAXSpeed Group Sales & Marketing Manager Andrew Campbell. “We’re working with our customers to give them the support the deserve, as we will also have our MAXSpeed parts trailer on hand to provide Rotax, Vega and Mojo support. This is our way of giving our customers an affordable way to prepare one last time, before the most competitive winter series in North America kicks off.”

Tires and 2017 Rotax cylinders will be available for purchase, and Rotax and Vega reps will be on site and available for technical questions and assistance. Both ROK Cup USA and Rotax MAX Challenge series drivers are welcome. The test will be organized by class level, with a schedule to be announced based on participation.
