THE ACADEMY OF RECORDS

Although it hasn’t yet started, the CIK-FIA Karting Academy Trophy has established an important record: with 40 countries represented, the 2018 edition will be the most international ever.

CLOSE UP ACADEMY TROPHY

When we dealt with the new 2018-2020 homologations in recent issues of Vroom, and especially when we dealt with new fairings, we had many interesting exchanges of information and opinions with the managers of KG Karting, the firm belonging to Pierluigi Giacoletto that produces plastic components in the area around Turin. When the new 506 model was presented, reporting everything that had emerged from our talks had not been possible; nonetheless, various curiosities worth mentioning did emerge, including an understanding of what’s behind apparently simple components such as the kart’s fairings, ie nosecones, number plate, and sidepods. Created in 2010, the CIKFIA Karting Academy Trophy prepares to start its ninth season in the best possible manner, as is clear by the active interest and participation of so many national karting movements. This year, in fact, as many as 40 nations will be represented, including countries such as Barbados, Kenya, Malta and Taiwan for the first time. A record that wipes out any doubt about the Academy’s success, its merit being to having made the concept of singlebrand in the CIK-FIA scene function. In this same sense, the role played by the OTK group, supplier of the Exprit frames and Vortex engines, has always been decisive, with its great focus on balanced performance and competition.
