The Motor Sports Association (MSA) has published the feedback that was received following extensive consultation on the Karting Green Paper; a discussion document on the future of UK karting that was issued in 2010.
The Green Paper outlined a number of proposals and considerations from the Kart Sporting Committee to shape the future of UK karting. The MSA invited the UK karting community to submit comments, and held a series of regional meetings in February 2011 to discuss the document with kart clubs and other organisations involved in the sport.
Rod Taylor, Kart Sporting Committee chairman, said: “We were overwhelmed by the level of feedback we received to the Green Paper, and it was very encouraging to see so many people taking the time to attend our discussion meetings. Without exception, people had constructive points to make and the members of the Kart Sporting Committee felt that it was right to make the feedback publicly available so that people understand the strength of feeling in certain areas. Now comes the big task of putting people's wishes into reality. Already the Kart Sporting Committee has started work on this and hopefully we will soon see some proposals being put out to consultation.”
The consolidated feedback on the Green Paper is currently being discussed by the relevant Specialist Committees, with a view to bringing forward proposed regulation changes for further consultation later this year.
