Florida Winter Tour

Excitement begins for 2015 edition of the FWT

Continuing to increase momentum towards the 2015 season, MAXSpeed Entertainment is pleased to announce that registration for the Cold Stone Florida Winter Tour powered by MAXSpeed Entertainment will open on Monday, December 1. With the first event weekend just over eight weeks away, the Florida Winter Tour will see the ROK Cup USA program kick off the popular winter series with the Rotax MAX Challenge following the very next weekend. With tickets on the line to the ROK International Final and Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals, wheel-to-wheel action is set to be fierce in the 17th annual Florida Winter Tour.

“We are very excited to have everything in place to open registration,” explained MAXSpeed Entertainment’s Garett Potter. “The entire team behind the Florida Winter Tour has worked extremely hard to improve and make this process as streamline as possible with the series just around the corner. We have had a lot of interest from not only our teams in North America, but from around the world. With the addition of the ROK engine program the first weekend, racers and teams are showing great interest in running both weekends, which is great news. It’s going to be huge!  We hope to help kick off the ROK-N-ROTAX weekends by offering big incentives at registration to race both weekends with savings up to $450.00.”

Cold Stone Florida Winter Tour powered by MAXSpeed Entertainment

After stepping up to the plate to support several US Rotax programs in 2014 Cold Stone Creamery will continue their support of more MAXSpeed promoted programs in 2015. Putting their name on the Florida Winter Tour as the title sponsor, the 2015 edition of the winter program will be dubbed the ‘Cold Stone Florida Winter Tour powered by MAXSpeed Entertainment.’

"Cold Stone has been nothing but exceptional in their support of Rotax and MAXSpeed promoted events," explained Garett Potter. "With their support, we have been able to put on what we feel has been the best US Grand Nationals and Pan American Challenge events ever. Now with their support of the entire Florida Winter Tour, we are looking to continue this trend into 2015 and beyond."

"I love the sport of karting as it is truly racing in its purest form," explained Andy DeFrancesco, a partner in Cold Stone Creamery. "I would love for the world to see it, grasp it and understand it as we the parents, mechanics, team, track owners and most importantly the drivers do. It needs exposure beyond the walls of the karting industry itself and I try to do whatever I can to help promote it."

MAXSpeed’s team of employees and partners continue plans for 2015 season

After the recent announcement of the acquisition of the Formula Kart Productions Florida Winter Tour (FWT), MAXSpeed Entertainment is pleased to announce some more details for the 2015 edition of the popular and competitive series. The upcoming season will feature changes but still encompass the back-to-back race weekends, which will now include the ROK Cup USA classes, making stops at beloved FWT tracks Homestead Karting, Orlando Kart Center, and the Ocala Gran Prix. 

When news hit that the Formula Kart weekends of the Florida Winter Tour would become ROK Cup USA weekends, it took the karting community by storm. As for the single engine ROK decision, promoters have tried for several years to run a TaG multiple engine program, with very little success. After talking with drivers, teams and industry leaders, MAXSpeed Entertainment felt it was in the best interest for the sport to help stabilize the market, starting in Florida.

Florida Winter Tour

2015 will see stops in Homestead, Orlando and Ocala

After the recent announcement of the acquisition of the Formula Kart Productions Florida Winter Tour (FWT), the MAXSpeed Group is pleased to announce the dates and locations for the 2015 edition of the popular and competitive series as well as some big changes to the Formula Kart weekend class structure. The upcoming season will feature the back-to-back weekends, making stops at beloved FWT tracks Homestead Karting, Orlando Kart Center and Ocala Gran Prix. Big changes will come on the first weekend of the double weekend format as MAXSpeed Entertainment will take over the Rok Cup USA program and offer only Rok Classes on the Formula Kart weekend.

“MAXSpeed Entertainment is proud to lock down three solid facilities for the 2015 FWT program,” explains Garett Potter, MAXSpeed Group’s newly appointed Director of Race Promotion. “These three locations have been staples in the FWT program in previous years and we are excited to continue to work with the track owners and operators to help elevate the playing field. We have also made some major changes to the class structure on the Formula Kart weekend to try and improve on Bill Wright’s efforts to grow the program by removing the TaG platform divisions and adding Rok Cup USA classes.”

Potter continued, “The team at MAXSpeed have worked diligently to put together the best program possible for the karters. Combining forces to work with OTK Srl. and the Rok Cup program, we feel that we have the best platform in place to offer the competitors and teams of the 2015 Florida Winter Tour.”

2014 FWT ROTAX MAX CHALLENGE CHAMPIONSHIP SUNDAY REVIEW
Monday, 24 March 2014 13:51

Serious Champagne Fun

CLOSE FINISHES FEATURED IN FINAL 2014 FWT ROUND

It was Championship Sunday as the competitors in Formula Kart Production's Florida Winter Tour, presented by Ocala Gran Prix, took to the track to determine a multitude of FWT International Rotax Max Challenge Championships. The morning started out with only one cloud in the sky. Unfortunately that one cloud covered the entire sky. But, the temperature was pleasant and by the lunch break the cloud was gone leaving the bright blue skies we're accustomed to at The FWT.

As has been the case in recent years, on Championship Sunday the pits seem a little quieter as everyone's focus ratchets up another notch or two. For those locked in championship battles today was do or die. For the rest, the day was about finding the best result possible as a springboard for the rest of the season.
