Pre-race start-up: yes or no?

AMONG THE NEW INTERNATIONAL RULES FOR THE COMING SEASON, THERE IS ONE THAT HAS ALARMED THE ENGINE TECHNICIANS: YOU CANNOT START THE KART ENGINE IN THE PADDOCK. LET’S ANALYZE THE PROS AND CONS OF THIS DIRECTIVE.

THE OPINION… IN VOLT

It seems that when Felipe Massa - that is to say the president of Cik-Fia – showed up in Genk on the occasion of the gear-box 125 KZ world championship, to strike him most was not the competition itself or the victory of Patrik Hajek in front of 5 thou-sand spectators, but another “collateral” aspect. We talk about the inveterate habit of engine technicians to start the engines and continue to “rev” just outside their tents, with the kart on the kart trolleys. A habit which they will have to give up in 2019. In fact, at the last meeting of the World Motor- Sport Council of the FIA, held last December 5 in St. Petersburg, among other decisions concerning karting (international calendars and so on) the absolute ban on starting and / or heating the engines in the paddock or in any other related areas was ratiied. A ban that was introduced directly in the Council and without going through other commissions, or asking for advice from industry experts.
