“The British Rotax Championships is one of the most challenging and competitive national Championships to win in the world. British Rotax drivers and teams still dominate the sport when competing all over the world. It has been over 20 years since the product was born in the UK and former Rotax winning drivers include Lando Norris , George Russell and many more of the upcoming drivers in the sport.“
