KZ2 possibly in line to inherit MSA British Championship status.

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

To call the path the MSA British Karting Championship has been on over the last few years a ‘rocky road’ would be an understatement. Combating the tide of single-spec classes, the CIK’s introduction of KF in 2007 only helped grease the slippery slide of elite level single-gear karting around the world, including the UK. Now the […]

“Game Over” – Drivers react to latest (unofficial) proposed changes to KF

Monday, July 16th, 2012

“Game over”, “Unlikely to tempt me back”, “Just sounds even more complicated to me” and “I don’t think it makes any difference” said the ex-KF karters when presented with the latest unofficial KF proposals as published by Vroom magazine. At odds to what has been said about the CIK’s standpoint, they reported last week that […]

British Karting Championship to go single make!

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

At first glance the MSA’s invitation to tender for promotion and organisation of the British Karting Championship is a pretty standard affair. However, the MSA have dictated that they want next year’s championship to be a single-manufacturer based championship. It isn’t a surprise as the trend for karting over the last several years has been […]

Monday, April 16th, 2012

PFi extended their track and Varennes had invested in launching a massive promotional campaign in preperation for hosting the 2012 world Karting Championship. Unfortunately their monumental effort has come to nothing as the CIK confirm they are ditching the European based rounds of the 2012 World Karting Championship, in a bid to save it. “However, […]

The CIK’s Mammoth Challenge – Simplifying the KF Concept!

Monday, March 12th, 2012

The CIK are pretty clear about this – they want to simplify the KF concept, make it cheaper and attract more private entries. But what does this actually mean for KF and its design philosophy? It is over a decade now since the CIK announced it wanted to get rid of 100cc and move to […]

CIK Considering Major KF Re-Think

Monday, February 13th, 2012

The latest CIK meeting in Paris has revealed that the CIK may be considering a major re-think on KF with an aim of introducing a more simplified engine. The difficulties faced by ASNs around the world to succesfully encourage KF participation nationally, let alone regionally, has meant the CIK has asked Vice-President Kee va de […]

KF1 v6.0 – Lottery Engine Allocation for World Champs in 2012

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

While the KF3 and KF2 incarnations of the KF formula have stayed pretty consistent regulatory wise since their introduction in 2007, KF1 hasn’t enjoyed such a smooth ride. It was all but ditched in favour of the Super-KF formula in 2009. However in 2011 after Super-KF failed to make an impression, KF1 was re-introduced back as KF’s […]
