Ready to go

The season of the Direct Drive classes comes alive with the start of the European FIA Karting Championship scheduled on the International Circuit of Naples from 20 to 22 April.

PREVIEW OF THE EUROPEAN CIK-FIA CHAMPIONSHIP

After “sharpening their weapons” during the winter and following the first seasonal outings, the International Karting Circus is preparing for the first big event of the season, the FIA Karting European Championship, which the single-speed classes start in Sarno the weekend of 22 April.

Just by looking at the name of the event, “FIA Karting European Championship Kart Grand Prix of Italy”, one realizes that there’s something new compared to what we had seen until 2017, which goes far beyond a simple marketing stunt. From 2018, in fact, the promotion of FIA events is entrusted to RGMMC, which sees James Geidel as its President. Already known and appreciated in the world of karting, Geidel had already made it clear during a conference organized by Vroom at IKA 2000 in Offenbach, that the election of RGMMC as promoter would lead to several changes.

A decisive break with the past, beyond a renewal of the categories’ image, one especially geared to the commitment to ensure a greater media presence of karting itself and the demolition of all those barriers that in recent years have made CIK events lose their appeal; these are the cornerstones of his mandate. Will the promises be respected? To find out, it will be necessary to wait for the competitions to take place, but a bright future is already on its way.

The European Championship returns to being disputed in four events, instead of the five in 2017, with their geographical settings across the Old Continent all the way up to the United Kingdom. Racing starts in Sarno, moves to PF International in Brandon, and then to Ampfing in Bavaria. The grand finale is in Essay, in Normandy. The Naples International Circuit was the only one to be confirmed on the European scene after last year, while Le Mans, Alaharma and Oviedo have left the stage.
