Gearbox bodywork revisions planned + IAME 175 Super Shifter approved for 250 National
All gearbox karts whether long or short circuit will need to have valve caps fitted in 2016 onwards. The ruling on gearbox Nassau panels or ‘Bubbles’ is also being revised as is the gearbox rear bumper regulations. This is because there have been instances of a front fairing going under the rear bumper of a kart and preventing braking, leading to a serious accident.
One application for a 2016 ‘up to 180cc engine’ and one application for a new 250 engine have been received by the MSA and subject to inspection will be eligible for racing for no points and prizes this year and to be integrated into the class next year. Tuning will initially be restricted on the 175cc engine and the weight for such karts will be announced in due course and before the 2016 regulations have to be submitted.
