CIK-FIA bulletin concerning front fairing mounting kit


The CIK-FIA, the karting commission of world motor sport’s governing body, has suspended use of the newly homologated front fairing mounting kit.

A bulletin from the CIK-FIA reads:

Following the recent findings on the functioning of the new front fairing mounting kit, homologated as from 1 January 2015, the CIK-FIA has decided to immediately suspend the use of this kit for an indefinite period. Tests are currently underway to clarify the criteria for a definitive solution.

As of now and until further notice, the homologated front fairing mounting kit as defined in Article 31 of the CIK-FIA Specific Prescriptions must therefore no longer be used. Front fairings must be fixed non-removably pending the outcome of the tests and the validation of a new kit. Only the front bumper support – the central part of the homologated front fairing mounting kit, which secures the bumper bars – is now usable. Front fairings homologated for the 2015-2020 period must be used with a fixed mounting.

For further information, please refer to the CIK-FIA Bulletin No 40.

This directive means the ‘collapsible’ front fairing mounting kit is not acceptable for use in UK motor sport until further notice. Any queries may be directed to the MSA Technical Department on
