Kart: letīs stay optimistic
Reportagem: KartCom Selection

After two slow seasons due to COVID-19, 2022 seems to mark a return to normal for kart racing. Since the beginning of the year, the meetings have been running smoothly and entries have increased. WSK Promotion, Champions of the Future and FIA Karting events have seen entry levels at least similar to 2019, before the pandemic. The Rotax and IAME international series also have a dynamic feel.

Caution remains the order of the day in the face of a virus that is still far from being eradicated and basic precautions should not be forgotten, even though the focus of the news has changed. The world adapts to the most difficult circumstances with astonishing speed. The war in Ukraine, which has been going on for two months, seems less worrying as soon as one moves away from the theatre of operations. Its direct consequences on the global economy are not being felt too much at the moment.

In spite of the clouds that undeniably darken the horizon, the sport of karting does not seem to be affected. The passion that motivates participants at all levels around the world remains a powerful engine capable of overcoming many difficulties. It is as though the competition is all the more important for the enthusiasts because of the various problems that affect their daily lives. The demand for karts is currently very high all over the world. Manufacturers are struggling to produce enough chassis. The additional workload to increase production and the shortage of certain components is causing delivery times to increase.

The issue of climate and fossil fuels is now widely recognised. The management of the carbon footprint of motor sport is beginning to be taken into account, as shown by the "Mission: Carbon Neutral Racing" carried out by RGMMC in collaboration with AQ Green TeC. Biofuels are gradually entering the racing arena, a pioneering area of new technology that does not have the same constraints as the global transport market. From 2023, a carbon-neutral, 100% renewable fuel made from second-generation biological components and synthetic fuel will be used in FIA Karting events.

Reasonable optimism is undoubtedly more effective than anything else in moving forward in a sport that is fuelled by passion and helps tens of thousands of young people learn about life.
