The CIK-FIA is committed from 2014 onwards to a policy of limiting the costs of karting events. Among the measures approved by the World Motor Sport Council, the reduction of the number of tyres allowed at a meeting deserves some clarification.


The new classifications are aligned with those of car racing with slick tyres called "Prime" for the KF, KZ and KZ2 classes and slick tyres called "Option" for KF-Junior and the Academy Trophy. To allow teams to prepare well, it was decided that the authorized quota would be increased by a set of tyres for each first round of a championship.

 

KF, KZ and KZ2 categories - "prime" slick tyres

For the first CIK event of the year in which a driver enters (also valid for "Wild Card" drivers who enter a single event):

5 sets of slick tyres, divided into 3 sets for Free Practice and 2 sets from Qualifying to the Finals.

 

All other CIK events of the year:

4 sets of slick tyres and one set of tyres that have been used already during the previous event, divided into two new sets and one used set during the free practice, and two new sets from Qualifying to the Finals.

 

KF-Junior category - "option" slick tyres

For the first CIK event of the year in which a driver enters (also valid for "Wild Card" drivers entering a single event):

4 sets of slick tyres, divided into 2 sets for Free Practice and 2 sets between Qualifying and the Finals.

 

All other CIK events of the year:

3 sets of slick tyres and one set of tyres already used during the previous event, divided into one new and one used for the free trials and two new sets from Qualifying to the Finals.

 

Academy Trophy - "option" slick tyres
