The stands of the Gran Karting Circuit in Lanzarote were full with standing room only, all were present to watch the fifth final of the Rotax Max Challenge. During the prefinal race presented this morning, the Swiss driver Ken Allemann seemed determined to put a stop tothe South African dominition who had won the first four edition of this annual event. Allemann easily won the prefinal and garanted himself pole position for the final race. The start was critical abd this is exactly were Allemann lost the race with a bad start. The defending champion, Christiano Morgado and quickly built a small gap. He was able to keep the gap till the end without pressure from the rear to become the new Rotax Max Challenge Champion. Tristam Oman, from thew United Kingdom finished third to comple the podium. The top tree drivers aged 35 years old and over are Sam Ghalleb, from France, Jan Andreasen, From Denmark and Manolis Tyamariadakis from Greece.

In the junior final, one could saz that everything was played during the prefinal were the French driver Benjamin Salvatore starting from 2nd position won the race and obtained pole for the final race. The final race was just a formality for Salvatore who lead from the start to finish. "I know that the race looked easy but it wasn;t the case for me. As soon as I took the lead, I had to manage my race so as not push to hard at the beginning to keep my tires fresh. Also, I found the race quite long, notably because of the temperature and my nervousness" said the happy winner.

The two drivers just behind him, Earl Bamber and Adam Christodoulou, were never a serious threath to the champion. The real battle was for second place and it was finally British driver Christodoulou who took the advantage over Bamber from New-Zeland. During the podium ceremony the frist two drivers Salvatore and Christodoulou won a test drive in Formula BMW from the Red Bull development program. The test will take place next October in Estoril, Portugal. Salvatore was extremely happy to receive this prize "this is an incredible opportunity for my and I fully intend to me the most of it".
