On July 13, 2016, ASN posted a Bulletin (2016-05) advising that the Technical Inspectors would be focusing on Briggs and Stratton Regulation 7f at forthcoming events.
At the recent Eastern Canadian Karting Championship at Mosport Kartways, ASN Technical Inspectors followed Regulation 7f. This included exchanging competitor components with new factory-boxed components as authorized within Regulation 7f.
The program was met with gratitude from the competitors who took satisfaction from knowing that ASN and the Technical Inspectors were monitoring the
fundamental “out-of-the-box” philosophy of the Briggs & Stratton program. Several competitors published their gratitude.
There was one exception from a competitor who refused to follow the instructions from the Technical Inspectors regarding Regulation 7f. Consequently, the competitor was excluded from the results of the Final race. These are the individuals that we do not want or need in kart racing.
Social Media Issues
At the recent Eastern Canadian Karting Championship at Mosport Kartways, a competitor received a penalty.
Subsequent to the event another competitor posted on Twitter a derogatory against the Race Officials in contravention of ASN Canada FIA Canadian Karting Regulations Book 1 – Sporting Regulations . 6.6. Social Media, Blogging and Internet Guidelines for Participants.
Consequently, the National Karting Licence of the driver was suspended/rescinded and the driver is no longer eligible to enter and compete in ASN Canada FIA sanctioned events. These are the individuals that we do not want or need in kart racing.
ASN congratulates the vast majority of competitors who willingly abide by their sporting and technical regulations. They are the ones that maintain the quality of kart racing events.
Those competitors who choose a path of non-compliance (often called cheaters by their peers) know who they are and must face themselves when looking in a mirror.
