The MSA has confirmed that the CIK-FIA’s detachable front fairing mounting kit will become mandatory in the UK from 1st March 2016, and will be provided for in the regulations from 1st January.
Nigel Edwards, Chairman of the Kart Committee, said:
“This will be a game changer! It isn’t just about the new front nose cone attachment; it’s about changing the mentality of the drivers. For years the sport has been blighted with contact driving and this will change that for the better.”
TVKC have been running a trial during their Winter Series since december which showed promise in the new system and as a result, the new system will be used at tracked such as Kimbolton from January 1st
The MSA has compiled a document explaining the changes which can be downloaded from https://www.msauk.org/assets/cikfrontfairings2016.pdf.
