ABkC future to be debated
The October ABkC Steering Group meeting had a wide-ranging discussion on how the Constitution and membership of the group should be changed in order to modernise the association. It should be re-organised to better represent the member clubs and give them an easier say on the deliberations and votes.
Some ideas put forward was to have a designated ABkC representative in every member club. There was a need to keep liaison with the trade but if the steering group was to be slimmed down, who should leave – the other Associations, the championship representatives, the class representatives? Should the NKA be represented?
There was a feeling that club racing is over-regulated and thus inflexible. The format for kart racing has changed little in decades yet ‘new’ sports can take up less valuable family time and may be easier to enter.
The ABkC prime function should be to promote the sport and support the clubs, and represent them to the MSA.
So with many questions it was decided to hold another meeting in December to concentrate on the future of the Steering Group and consequential changes to the constitution – thus the AGM will be delayed this year.
