On the wave of the success of the ’17 edition and according to the incredibly increased number of countries hosting X30 Challenges and main IAME events awarding drivers with tickets to participate in the 2018 IAME International Final, new criteria have been introduced to select the Warriors that will be able to join the Arena of Le Mans.

Only the top drivers from each country are in fact allowed to participate, only the very best and the very brave will have the possibility to try to step on the highest step of the IAME International Final podium. A great show is expected as the highest level of Karting drivers will be concentrated in this unique event.

X30 Junior, X30 Senior, X30 Master, X30 Super, X30 Super Shifter classes, will fill the grids of the 4 days races, with a Special Award going to X30 Lady and X30 Veteran. Also, together with the young Warriors racing Round II of the X30 Mini Kup, for a Karting spectacle never seen before, LIVE BROADCASTING from the beginning of the qualifying heats.

IAME looks forward to meet all Warriors and spend the most amazing Karting week with you all. A big thank goes to Victory Concept, Le Mans Karting, all Sponsors, Partners, Teams and especially Drivers, for supporting us and making this possible.”



SOME HISTORY:
he International racing program by IAME starts in 2009 with the organization of the first edition of the Bruno Grana Trophy, a memorial event dedicated to the original IAME founder, celebrating IAME worldwide drivers. After the successful edition, the Bruno Grana Trophy was also organized in 2010 and 2011 with increasing numbers and fame. Following the success of this international competition, IAME introduces the X30 Challenge Europa and the Bruno Grana Trophy is taken to a higher level with the creation of the IAME International Final.

Both events are a huge success and drivers from all over the world start aiming at them as a goal and with great interest. In very few years both races have become benchmarks in the Karting scenario, boasting the participation of drivers from more than 45 countries and a peak of 405 entered competitors in the 2016 edition of the IAME International Final hosted on the International Circuit of Le Mans.All CIK homologated chassis brands are allowed, each driver can race with his preferred colors, while the selected manufacturer for tyres KOMET Racing Tyresprovides equal grip to all participants.

The combination of IAME engines and KOMET Racing Tyres guarantees each driver the same level of performance, therefore the driving and chassis setup skills are the only keys to lap time differences. 
Many of the podium drivers of all editions of the international IAME events can be seen in professional Motorsport disciplines, including F1. Especially in X30 Junior and X30 Senior, a good placement in the final standings can easily open doors to a career in Motorsport, just as former IAME drivers and F1 World Champions Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg did!

 "I have been involved in karting for over 30 years and am still an active racer today so I understand how hard it can be to achieve your goals an sometimes those opportunities only come once in a lifetime, I am passionate about the sport of Karting in Australia and want to give everyone this great opportunity and help Australian drivers represent their country and achieve their goals and especially to those who could never afford to race in international competition"- REMO LUCIANI
