World Motor Sport Council
The first 2013 meeting of the World Motor Sport Council took place today, 8 March, at the FIA offices in Geneva, Switzerland.
The following decisions were taken:
In order to enhance competition in the CIK-FIA European and World Championships, a new format of Pre-Finals has been introduced. The top 68 classified drivers from the Qualifying Heats will go through to Pre-Final 1 and 2, each comprising 34 drivers. The first 17 classified drivers from each Pre-Final will then be eligible for the Final. There will no longer be a Second Chance Heat.
A “Q2 Super Pole” has been introduced in to the CIK-FIA World KZ Championship in order to establish the top 12 positions in the general classification. A trophy will also be awarded to the top classified driver in the Q2 Super Pole.
Following a mandate from the 2012 General Assembly, the WMSC confirmed the composition of the Drivers’ Commission. Under the Presidency of Emerson Fittipaldi (BRA), the rights and interests of drivers across the disciplines will be represented by 13 members among them Danilo Rossi* (ITA) representing Karting.
