Big names, large grids and perfect weather in Homestead for inaugural ROK Cup USA weekend

In the very south of the state of Florida, MAXSpeed Entertainment kicked off their first event as the new owners of the Florida Winter Tour on January 17-18, 2015. Hosting round one of the new Cold Stone Florida Winter Tour Powered by MAXSpeed Entertainment ROK Cup USA weekend presented by MG Tires at Homestead Karting, set in the shadow of the Homestead-Miami Speedway, over 150 racers from around the world competed in seven different categories. The event featured an all-star lineup of drivers in the headline ROK Shifter class that included former Formula 1 drivers Rubens Barrichello and Nelson Piquet Jr. along with an excellent turnout of drivers in the remaining six categories.

Under sunny skies and near perfect weather, the event ran smooth from start to finish. The challenging permanent circuit on the parking lot grounds of the Homestead facility pushes drivers to their limits and provides excellent racing for those watching trackside and online.

Bill Wright’s award tradition to continue under new series management

With the group of people at the MAXSpeed Entertainment taking over the reigns of the Florida Winter Tour, employees were thrust into action immediately to organize, plan and make changes to one of the largest and most competitive series in North American karting. With the addition of the ROK Cup USA program and the evolution of the Rotax MAX Challenge weekend, few items were over looked as the planning continued throughout the last quarter of this year.

“One of the awards that I wanted to see continue under the new management of the series was the Dan Wheldon Ambassador Award that had been a sought after prize in the Florida Winter Tour for the past three seasons,” explained Mike Maurini, owner of Race Tech Development, Koene USA and great friend of the late Dan Wheldon. “Being proactive, I made a few phone calls and offered my hand to help rekindle the award for the 2015 Florida Winter Tour. I know it means a lot to Bill Wright, several members of the karting community and myself, and with the help of Richard Boisclair from MAXSpeed Entertainment, he agreed that I would be the perfect successor to manage the award.”
