FIA Karting to Establish Digital Monitoring Scoring System
At its meeting on 19th October 2022 in London, UK, the FIA World Motor Sport Council took the following decisions based on the proposals of the International Karting Commission.
INTERNATIONAL KARTING RANKING
In a world first, WMSC members agreed to the creation and introduction of a computerized monitoring scoring system. The digital ranking will aggregate results from eligible karting events around the globe.
The system aims to federate the entire karting racing community and streamline the racing activities and results. It will take account of all levels of competition from FIA World Championships through to national events.
It will also act as a safety tool for a driver’s level of experience. According to the number of points, the FIA can ascertain if a driver has a sufficient level of experience to move to the next level of competition. It will create a natural pathway for all members of the karting community.
DRIVER SAFETY EQUIPMENT, IMPLEMENTATION OF FIA STANDARD 8877-2022
Under the authority of the FIA Safety Commission, the implementation of a newly-created protective clothing standard (overalls, gloves and shoes) for FIA Karting competitors was approved.
