ASN Canada FIA – Maintaining the Quality of Kart Racing Events
1. Briggs and Stratton Technical Inspection
2. Social Media Issues
Briggs and Stratton Technical Inspection
On July 13, 2016, ASN posted a Bulletin (2016-05) advising that the
Technical Inspectors would be focusing on Briggs and Stratton Regulation 7f
at forthcoming events.
At the recent Eastern Canadian Karting Championship at Mosport Kartways,
ASN Technical Inspectors followed Regulation 7f. This included exchanging
competitor components with new factory-boxed components as authorized
within Regulation 7f.
The program was met with gratitude from the competitors who took
satisfaction from knowing that ASN and the Technical Inspectors were
monitoring the fundamental “out-of-the-box” philosophy of the Briggs &
Stratton program. Several competitors published their gratitude.
There was one exception from a competitor who refused to follow the
instructions from the Technical Inspectors regarding Regulation 7f.
Consequently, the competitor was excluded from the results of the Final race.
These are the individuals that we do not want or need in kart racing.
Social Media Issues
At the recent Eastern Canadian Karting Championship at Mosport Kartways, a
competitor received a penalty.
Subsequent to the event another competitor posted on Twitter a derogatory
against the Race Officials in contravention of ASN Canada FIA Canadian
Karting Regulations Book 1 – Sporting Regulations . 6.6. Social Media,
Blogging and Internet Guidelines for Participants.
Consequently, the National Karting Licence of the driver was
suspended/rescinded and the driver is no longer eligible to enter and compete
in ASN Canada FIA sanctioned events. These are the individuals that we do
not want or need in kart racing.
ASN congratulates the vast majority of competitors who willingly abide by their
sporting and technical regulations. They are the ones that maintain the quality of
kart racing events.
Those competitors who choose a path of non-compliance (often called cheaters by
their peers) know who they are and must face themselves when looking in a mirror.
