USA International Raceway, joined by the Great Northern Rotax Series is proud to announce the launch of the Regional ROTAX Summer Shoot-Out. This scheduled event will take place over the weekend of July 19-20 at the track in Shawano, WI.

USA Intl Raceway Logo As one of the last opportunities for racers bound for the ROTAX Nationals to compete on the track before the traditional blackout, this will be the final test of the course. For those of you who have never raced at USAIR, the rolling terrain matched with the high performance asphalt and wide banked turns, makes for an amazing road course. The combination of the rollercoaster straightaway and the fall-away "S" turns that provide weightless effects at the top and pull an additional 2 "Gs" at the bottom make mastering this unique race track a real challenge.

July in Shawano is a beautiful time. The rich green landscape marked by beautiful lakes give visitors a great sense of country. Located just 40 miles northwest of Green Bay, this area is a popular summertime location for southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois residents.

The track will be available for practice sessions on Friday the 18th for $35.00 per kart (including pit pass) with additional pit passes available for $10.00 each. Competitors will be assigned a single pit space per kart. Teams seeking dedicated space for tents and large trailers will need to contact track management to determine availability and location. Saturday's Shoot-Out pre-entry online fee will be $85.00 per kart and will include a single two-day pit pass ($100.00 at track). Additional multi-day passes will be $20.00. Pre-registration is available at http://www.kartreg.com/gnrs/index.html

The top three finalists in each class will receive trophies and the winners will receive a set of MoJo tires to be used during the Grand Nationals in September.

The Great Northern Rotax Series would like to invite all participants in the ROTAX Max Challenge to participateGreat Northern Rotax Series Logo in this (non-points) gathering of ROTAX enthusiasts and fellow racers.
