An Argentinian Stunts legend, and probably the best racer ever not to have won a ZakStunts season. Alan Rotoi joined the community as part of the Golden Generation in April 2002 and entered with style: 5th place on ZCT14, 3rd place on ZCT15 and then three consecutive first places on ZCT16, 17 and 18. Alan Rotoi's ZCT16 is one of the most famous replays in existence because, apart from being a breathtaking power gear ride, it was the first one to make crucial and successful use of the Magic Carpet. Rotoi won this track with a 9 second gap to second place. Despite his dominance in the middle part of 2002, Rotoi lost the Zakstunts season to Bonzai Joe, who had been playing from the beginning of the season, and also won the last two tracks. However, Alan struck back to his Danish rival by winning ISA 2002 competition in a tight battle. He defended this Indy / OWOOT title in Indy Racing Cup 2003.

Alan Rotoi continued racing in the top of the scoreboard until early 2004, when another Argentinian racer arrived and took the competitions by storm: Gutix, who gave MeganiuM Aces High, the team founded by Alan in 2002, its first ZakStunts title. MeganiuM would remain a major force in Stunts racing for many years.

In 2003, Alan Rotoi sent shockwaves through the Stunts world by opening the 4dstunts competition, which had more than 60 racers in the first race - easily the highest number of racers one one track ever. This competition showed the potential of Stunts, and although the racers numbers declined from the astronomic beginning, the tournament continued on a high participation level for about a year.

Alan Rotoi remains a key figure in the community. While his racing activity has gone through highs and lows after 2004, he pulled off some strong performances in later years, such as victory at ZCT118 and second places at ZCT85 and ZCT132.
