Dealer Spotlight: AM Racing Engines Remains Influential in Rotax Racing

Am engines

Recognized as one of the most diverse companies in karting over the past decade, AM Racing Engines is one of RTX Karting’s most solid service centers and dealers. Involved in the Rotax game in the early 2000s, AM Racing Engines turned into a race team before making the move back to an engine supply company just a few short years ago.

Present in the South Florida karting scene but supporting national karting events throughout North America, AM Racing Engines is owned and operated by Ariel Castro. Supplying race engines to teams and drivers competing aboard any chassis brand, Ariel provides some of the best trackside support efforts in the Rotax karting community.

With a dyno on site, AM Engines does not only prepare engines but also ensures that they are broken in and ready to go from the very first session.

“We love the Rotax platform, and the new engine and tire package is great,” explained Castro. “With the ease of use, we could see a huge momentum swing from engine brand to engine brand in the coming years, and we are happy that we are the front side of it and can support both Rotax and RTX Karting.”

“AM Engines is committed to the Rotax platform, and we thank them for that,” added Julieta Fernandez. “Ariel and his wife provide exceptional customer support of the Rotax brand and do whatever they can to not only elevate not only Rotax but karting as a whole. They have a great customer base and will be very influential in expanding the Rotax program within the United States.”

AM Racing Engines is located in South Florida and in the heart of the North American karting scene. Complete contact information can be found on under our Dealer Locator map.
