CIK-FIA World Motor Sport Council Meeting Minutes – June 19

At its meeting on 19th June 2017 in Geneva, the FIA  World Motor Sport Council took the following decisions on the basis of the proposals of the International Karting Commission.

Prime and Option Tyres
The Homologation Regulations introduce a time difference of 4% between Prime and Option tyres of each manufacturer. Date of application of of the new Technical and Homologation Regulations: 01/01/2018. This amendment will therefore concern the next tyre homologation period from 2020 onwards.

Minikart Category
Introduction of Technical and Homologation Regulations for Minikart chassis, bodywork, bumpers and engines. The aim is to create a common basis for harmonising regulations between the different ASNs. The creation of any CIK-FIA Championship, Cup or Trophy for the Minikart category is not on the agenda.
Date of application: 01/01/2018.

Removing options for homologation
Options for homologation of chassis, engines, brakes, carburettors and bodywork are no longer permitted. However, it will be permitted to homologate an engine with two pistons (two different segments). It will also be possible to homologate a brake with two different disc sizes. Date of application of the new Technical and Homologation Regulations: 01/01/2018. This amendment will therefore concern the next homologation period with a validity from 01/01/2019.
