About the Florida Winter Tour

As one of the premier karting series in not only North America, but also the world, the Formula Kart Productions Florida Winter Tour was purchased by MAXSpeed Entertainment in August of 2014. Signing a deal with long time promoter and owner Bill Wright, MAXSpeed Entertainment, headed by president Richard Boisclair, would take over the reigns and look to re-energize the program with a new focus and efforts behind the popular winter series.

Immediately hiring the likes of Garett Potter to take the lead role in the series, the 2015 Florida Winter Tour began to take shape. Working with tracks throughout the state, soon after a schedule was announced along with an exciting new class structure. Forgoing the Formula Kart TaG weekend and striking a deal with OTK/Vortex Srl., the double race weekend format took on a new role in the upcoming season through the ROK Cup USA program.

Remaining static is the second weekends of the series that have always encompassed the Rotax MAX Challenge program. With drivers traveling from around the world to vie for race wins, championships and accompanying tickets to the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals, the Florida Winter Tour maintains a reputation that would challenge any karting series around the world.

With the first weekend now a ROK Cup USA weekend, all teams and competitors will race in the series utilizing only one engine brand per weekend. Met with praise from most of the industry and their customers, the Florida Winter Tour under the directions of MAXSpeed Entertainment was born. The ROK Cup USA is relatively new in the United States but has taken the country by storm. With several of the nation’s top teams and drivers behind the program, providing them with well-organized national level events was a must.

The 2017 edition of the series will kick off at FWT standby, the Homestead Karting facility in Homestead, Florida. The second stop will see Florida Winter Tour competitors return to Palm Beach Karting in Jupiter, Florida, with the series finale set for the picturesque Ocala Gran Prix circuit in Ocala, Florida.

With a host of international teams and drivers making the trek to the Sunshine State, the 2017 edition of the tour promises to be the best yet!
