MSA set to remove medical requirement for licenses
- Nigel Edwards, Chairman of Kart Committee, has had a fruitful meeting with the Chairman of the Medical Advisory Panel resulting in a proposal to go to the June Council that from 1.1.16 (or earlier?) that short circuit karting will only need a medical self‐declaration. The questions may be reviewed and expanded apparently. For Long Circuit there will need to be a medical at the entry to the discipline, then self declaration to age 45, thereafter annual medical. This is great news if it gets through Council. International licences will still need medicals of course, being an FIA rule.
- A working group has been set up to progress the issue of licences for mechanics, which would include some insurance cover and hopefully a DBS check, and the group will also draft an ABkC Team Charter. This could complement the MSA Race’n’Respect initiative and the MSA are very supportive.
