According to our sources in Brazil, the national federation is working hard to bring back to splendour the CIK Pan American Championship already in 2014.
Giovanni Guerra, President of FAEM and member of the CBA - the Brazilian national federation – confirmed enthusiastically.
“We are on the final stages of the organization of the 2014 Pan American Championship, altogether with the CIK-FIA, CBA, CNK, according to Academy Trophy standards.”
After the demise of the only CIK-FIA championship in the American continent back in 2010 – the last edition of the Pan American was held at the Velopark in Brazil for Sudam and Sudam Junior in 2009 and was won by Argentine Carlos Merlo and Brazilian Felipe Fraga respectively – the return of the CIK Pan Am is long overdue.
Let’s hope that this bold initiative will spark up new life in South American karting.
