Happy New Year, so to speak…

Pierluigi Mancini

I receive a phone call from Giuliano … in a show of democracy, he gave me the chance to wish you a Happy New Year in my own way, with an editorial. The term “auguri” in ancient Rome and among the Etruscans indicated a group of priests whose task was to interpret the will of the gods from the light of birds. They did not guess the celestial will in the abstract, but only if decisions already taken by those who command them matched or not. So, as the high priest of karting, I shall express my own good wishes, respecting the etymology of the word, regarding some decisions of the sports authority that, over the years, has done many good things and many … not so bright things. I’d wish the powers of world karting to open their eyes. Starting from where things are going well: KZ. Shall we decide to leave open the choice of tires and loosen the rules in the KZ1? More open engines, even non-approved frames, free choice of tire brands. If it is, or should be, the highest geared category, it is useless to make it a kind of useless duplicate of KZ2. Then I wish the usual folks understand that OK is a fantastic category in which you might even dare eliminating the rev limiter, at least in the Senior. And to give the opportunity to demonstrate their value with greater support and more prominence. Nuf said?
