Ignite Major Races & Events

What is an Ignite Major?

The Ignite Major races utilize the same components and rules used throughout the Ignite platform with one key difference – the competition. The Major events bring all of the best Ignite racers from around the world to compete during a single weekend. Local champions, regional winners, national standouts and professional drivers – all on track together and all on equal equipment.
