CIK-FIA vice president Kees Van de Grint has criticised the amount of time taken for homologation regulations to be drawn up for the new KF engine, set for 2016. The new powerplant will be demonstrated at two CIK-FIA events this season, with the European Championship round at PF International pencilled in. The engine is based on the previous KF concept with significant alternations and will be a multi-manufacturer category. Changes include no centrifugal clutch or electric starter with battery. They’ve been replaced by a decompression valve on the cylinder head which allows the engine to push start without having to lift the rear wheels.
