The Motor Sports Association’s Kart Committee has published the first proposed regulation changes resulting from the Karting Green Paper, a discussion document on the future of the sport that was issued by the Kart Sporting Committee in November 2010.
The proposed changes, regarding new classes and class homologation, are available for consultation at www.msauk.org/regulations until 7 October 2011. The two documents, which should be read in conjunction with each other, include proposals to provide stability for competitors and teams, such as introducing a three-year homologation period for new classes.
MSA Kart Committee Chairman, Rob Jones, said: “The main concern arising from the consultation process was that there are ‘too many classes’. These proposals seek to address this and therefore provide stability and confidence for competitors in at least one area of karting for the future.”
The Green Paper will be discussed further at the next meeting of the Kart Committee on 2 November 2011, when championship structures, and the findings of a sub-group that has reviewed cost-cutting measures, will be considered.
