RECENT DECISIONS OF THE FIA WORLD MOTOR SPORT COUNCIL CONCERNING KARTING

THE PYRAMID IS NOW IN PLACE FROM KARTING TO FORMULA 1

The WMSC approved the one-year reduction of the minimum age of Drivers that can access non-gearbox classes. Drivers now have access to the junior categories in the year of their 12th birthday until the year of their 14th birthday year, as well as non-gearbox senior categories from the year of their 14th birthday. The adaptation of the regulations according to this decision, especially as regards the grade C licenses, will be available soon.

Taking into account the fact that for the past few years Drivers have been able to leave Karting for Formula 4 from the age of 15, this change offers them the opportunity for earlier learning in Competition Karting and to extend it for an additional year. This allows them to gain experience and to better prepare before they move into cars.
