TININI, CRG SPA CHAIRMAN: “REGULATIONS NEED A CHANGE:
IT IS THE ONLY POSSIBLE WAY TO SAVE KARTING”
IN TAKING STOCK OF THIS YEAR’S WORK, GIANCARLO TININI DRAWS A SKETCH OF THE PRESENT
SITUATION AND POINTS HIS FINGER AT THE TOO STRICT KF MOTORIZATION REGULATIONS. IT IS
ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY TO TAKE A STEP BACK IN ORDER TO GIVE KARTING NEW CREDIT.
Desenzano del Garda (Brescia – Italy), 22thDecember 2009.
The opening of the brand-new C.R.G. plant and the year-end prize-giving
ceremony for the important 2009 achievements of the Italian manufacturing firm
were an ideal occasion to draw a sketch of the current situation of karting with the
chairman of C.R.G. S.p.a., Giancarlo Tinini.
The spotlights are definitely on the appalling situation of the KF engines after three
years from their introduction.
It is not the engine to be
under accusation, on the contrary: it has been performing at excellent technical levels so far, but the
complex regulation hinders its usage and spread.
“KF Class is in troubled waters – says Mr Tinini – and this situation has nothing to do with the product,
which is of excellent quality. It is rather a matter of regulation, because it is far too strict. If we want to
keep on going steadily towards the KF failure, we just need to keep on with this system. If we won’t
make it simpler we won’t get anything good out of it. We need to simplify.”
