A new karting institution is born during the fifth CIK-FIA event: the Karting Team Association chaired by Ralf Schumacher.
The F.1 is an example for karting, also from an organizational point of view: they had the FOTA, now we have the KTA (Karting Team Association).
The aim of the association is to cooperate with CIK and FIA in order to improve some issues related to karting such as organizational aspects, costs and selection of tracks. KTA would like to take care about all the issues that can make karting more attractive to customer and private teams.
For the moment in this association there are: BirelArt Racing Team, Cedric sport, Chiesa Corse, CPB sport, CRG Racing Team, CRG Holland, DR Racing Team, Forza Racing, Fusion Motorsport, Keyzer Racing, Kosmic Racing Department, KSM, Praga Racing Team, Ricky Flynn motorsport, Sodi Kart Racing Team, Ward Racing, Tony Kart Racing Team.The new President, Ralf Schumacher, was elected by the Teams members.
The news has been welcomed with joy from all the paddock, we can't wait to see the practical aspects.
