With youth, cost reduction and education as leitmotivs, the new CIK-FIA 'U18' World Championship will kick off next summer. Thanks to exceptional offers from Parolin and Dunlop, Drivers will be able to fight for a supreme FIA title at small cost as engines and tyres will be supplied to them free of charge! While the maximum number of entries is set at 102, over 50% of the starting grid is already known and will gather a spectacular bunch of nationalities since Drivers from 17 different countries are already in the starting blocks!
