July 3, 2015 (Orlando, Florida) — The ROK Cup USA series is excited to announce the details for its 1st annual Micro ROK & Mini ROK Championship, which will be held at the Orlando Kart Center from July 9-11. The one-off event is expected to bring in drivers from the US as well as around the globe to compete for a coveted spot at the International ROK Cup Finals in October. Registration is now open for drivers who wish to enter the championship, the price is $600 and includes race tires, fuel, and for the first 50 registered entrants a special VIP package with entry for 4 to Disney’s EPCOT and brunch included.
The event will feature night racing throughout the weekend, leaving the day free for drivers and their families to enjoy all the attractions that Orlando has to offer. The race structure will remain the same as the ROK Cup USA series, with open practice on Thursday, qualifying and two heats on Friday, and the final heat, pre-final, and final on Saturday. On Saturday morning, drivers who RSVP will be shuttled from the track to Disney’s EPCOT theme park to enjoy some fun and a gourmet brunch at the famous Chefs de France restaurant.
The Championship will also implement ‘parc ferme’ for race tires and fuel, a move that will allow all drivers a fair and level playing field, as is done in European race competition. Series promoter Andre Martins says, “We expect this event will draw in drivers from around the world to compete for a spot in the International ROK Cup Finals. The race atmosphere we are trying to create is both fun and competitive, a true spec series where drivers can face off at a top-notch event that is exciting for participants and spectators alike.”
