Recent decisions by the International Karting Commission (CIK)

At its meeting on August 28th, 2015 in Paris (FRA), the International Karting Commission (CIK) took the following decisions.

Development of the 2016 sporting calendar
The CIK-FIA has met its commitments by fixing the 2016 sporting calendar very early to allow Drivers, Teams and ASN’s to plan more comfortably for next season. The proposal submitted by the promoter WSK Promotion has been accepted by the CIK Commission. Unfortunately it was not possible to reach an agreement with the organisers to hold a Competition in Germany or Great Britain.To be approved definitively, the 2016 CIK-FIA sporting calendar must be validated by the vote of the next FIA World Motor Sport Council, on September 30th, 2015 in Paris (FRA).

Adjustment of the time penalty concerning front fairings
Article 31 of the CIK-FIA Specific Prescriptions has been amended to clarify that the penalties when the front fairing is incorrectly positioned after an impact, are to be reduced from 30 to 10 seconds and automatically imposed without appeal. Any Driver found to have intentionally placed their front fairing out of position on the final lap or after the chequered flag will be excluded from the Competition. This decision takes effect immediately, with the sole exception of the 2015 CIK-FIA Karting Academy Trophy which has already completed two of its three Competitions according to the previous regulation.
