The CIK-FIA Asia-Pacific Championship for KZ will take place as last year in China, from 8th to 11th December 2016 at the Kartodromo de Coloane in Macao. The holding of this Competition owes much to the will of its organiser, the Automobile General Association Macao-China, which has once again spared no effort. The field, with a slight increase to 28 entries, this year includes 14 nations, distributed equally between Asia and the rest of the world.
The novelty of the CIK-FIA Asia-Pacific Championship for KZ in 2016 concerns the tyres and the opportunities spurring the Competition. The drivers may use the tyres of their choice from those approved by the CIK-FIA. They will bring their own tyres with a barcode to Macau and have them registered by the technical commissioners.
The Automobile General Association of Macao-China has done its utmost to cover a significant part of the costs, particularly with regard to accommodation. This initiative attracted six European drivers and five Australians against the three drivers from Macao and five from Hong Kong. The overall standard is expected to be higher than in 2015.
Italy's Francesco Celenta (Formula K / TM Racing) is one of the big favourites after his 2nd place in 2015. The Australians Joshua Fife (Ricciardo Kart / Parilla) and Marijn Kremers (Ricciardo Kart / Parilla), respectively 5th and 6th last year, also know the subject well.
Jorge Pescador (Praga / TM Racing), ranked 8th in the CIK-FIA European KZ Championship, will be closely followed. Of the young Europeans chasing the title, Tom Leuillet (Sodi / TM Racing), 7th in the CIK-FIA International Super Cup for KZ2 at Kristianstad, Kevin Petit (Sodi / TM Racing) and Adrien Renaudin (Sodi / TM Racing) and the Portuguese Yohan Azedo Sousa (CRG / TM Racing) have good potential.
The Indonesian driver S. Noor Senna (Praga / TM Racing), ranked in the top 10 in 2015, Hong Kong driver Jacky Chan Cheuk Hin (CRG / TM Racing), 4th in the CIK-FIA Asia-Pacific KF3 Championship in 2011, and Macau's Chang Wing Chung (CRG / TM Racing), seem the best equipped of the Asian drivers to aim for the top places.
The Competition can be followed with live-timing on the cikfia.com site. The Prefinal will take place on Sunday 11th December from 10.15 to 10.40 and the Final from 15.15 to 15.45 (UTC + 8).

This year's CIK-FIA awards ceremony took place in Vienna (AUT) after the FIA Ceremony, closing a busy week as the World Motor Sport Council and the FIA General Assembly had been held a few days before.
While the World Champions had already been rewarded the day before at the Hofburg Palace, all of the CIK-FIA Champions were honoured on Saturday 3rd December 2016 at the Grand Hotel Wien. The host of the evening, Luca De Donno, President of WSK Promotion, opened the festivities as the Promoter of the CIK-FIA Competitions, in the presence of Shaikh Abdulla Bin Isa Al-Khalifa, the President of the CIK-FIA, and its Vice-President Kees Van De Grint.
On the stage the three 2016 CIK-FIA World Champions, Pedro Hiltbrand (ESP) in OK, Victor Martins (FRA) in OK-Junior and Paolo De Conto (ITA) in KZ, and the Drivers classified 2nd and 3rd in the World Competitions received their trophy to the applause of the public. The European Champions, the winner of the International Super Cup and the top three in the CIK-FIA Karting Academy Trophy were also rewarded.
