As the landscape of karting continues to change in North America, ROK Cup Promotions is pleased to announce the formation of Karting Challenge of Florida (KCF) Presented by Vortex Engines and Bridgestone Tires. Taking place at the ultra-fast and competitive Palm Beach Karting track, KCF will continue on where ROK Cup South Florida left off, and has big plans for the future to help grow the sport of karting in Florida.
“First off, all of us would like to personally thank Tony and Gina Schroeder for the support they have given the karting community for more than fifteen seasons,” explains Luis Martinez, General Manager Palm Beach Karting. “Both of these individuals have given their heart and soul to karting in South Florida and we all look forward to seeing them trackside in the very near future.”
As the ROK Cup South Florida moves north and changes locations, teams and competitors will see the great Vortex ROK racing which they have come to know and love.
“Each event will be operated by the ROK Cup USA Team,” adds Garett Potter, ROK Cup USA Director of Operations. “Many of us understand it takes a lot of work and great people to run a facility like Palm Beach, and with our support looking after the series, Luis and his team can focus on growing the Florida market. You will also see some updates and very cool additions to the program such as ‘Track Wars’, amazing prize packages being offered and an association with the South Florida Kart Club Arrive and Drive program.”
The remaining 2017 schedule is as follows:
8 round series with 3 drops
*First three rounds at Palm Beach Karting count towards Club Championship
Round 4 – July 29, 2017
Round 5 – August 26, 2017 (Saturday)
Round 6 – October 22, 2017 (Sunday)
Round 7 – November 26, 2017 (Sunday)
Round 8 – December 17, 2017 (Sunday)

Arrive & Drive:
Helping to get people into the sport of karting, Karting Challenge of Florida will work with the South Florida Kart Club for an arrive and drive program. Bringing their program to select races of the new KCF will open up new drivers to a higher level of racing. Please feel free to invite anyone looking to get into karting to these events to experience a high level program at a fraction of the cost.
