*** Important updates for Rotax Micro & Mini Gold Cup racers this weekend at GMR Chilliwack **

Rotax Micro & Mini participants,

If you are running Rotax MicroMax or Rotax MiniMax at the upcoming Gold Cup this weekend at GMR, please note the following updates for this event:

Rotax MicroMax: Vega Blue/MaxSpeed Blue tire will be allowed (4.5” tires on all four wheels).

Rotax MiniMax: Two chassis configurations will be allowed as follows:

  1. Cadet chassis (950 mm wheelbase), 265 lbs, 4.5 tires on all four wheels, 20mm exhaust restrictor.
  2. Full size chassis (1010 to 1040 mm wheelbase), 290 lbs, 4.5 front/6.0 rear tires, 22mm exhaust restrictor.

Vega Blue/MaxSpeed Blue tire will be allowed for both configurations.

After discussing with Gold Cup this amendment was made due to the poor availability of the MoJo Tire.
