Belgian-Championship-2017-3-Genk.jpg

 

La troisième et dernière épreuve du Championnat de Belgique 2017 se déroulait ce week-end à Genk pour les sept catégories IAME X30 en compétition. 205 pilotes participaient au meeting. Le team VDK Racing a remporté de nombreux succès à tous les niveaux.

 

Le titre X30 Junior pour Lomko, mais Handsaeme impressionne
Kobe Pauwels était le plus rapide lors des chronos X30 Junior, mais Xavier Handsaeme dominait les manches et s'imposait également en finale face à Mari Boya et Valon Janssen. Régulier sans éclat, Vlad Lomko terminait 7e derrière Elie Goldstein et remportait le titre avec 170 points contre 166 à Goldstein et 163 à Janssen. Enzo Lévâque prenait la 6e place du championnat, Jules Mettetal frôlant le top 10.

 

X30 Senior : duel Bailly/Wargé, Chappard champion
Sébastien Bailly retrouvait le volant après une saison en tant que mécanicien en international chez RFM. Il a signé la pole et remporté les manches qualificatives devant Felix Wargé qui s'est pourtant imposé en finale. Franck Chappard remontait de la 16e à la 4e place dans les manches et concluait sur le podium final, ce qui lui permettait de coiffer la couronne de champion de Belgique avec 171 points, loin devant Ries Viverette (149 pts) et Daan Steenman (147 pts). Christopher Chany (141 pts) pointait 4e non loin du top 3. Xavier Dias prenait la 10e position.

 

Sans faute et couronne X30 Super pour De Pauw
Ulysse De Pauw a tout gagné à Genk, ces chronos à la finale, ce qui lui a valu de devancer au championnat son rival Corenton Collignon ainsi que William Godefroid. Clément Riquet terminait 5e devant François Xavier Venet.

 

Dans les autres catégories, Kimmy Abraham a été titré en X30 Mini, Johan Sinty en X30 Cadet, Fabio Kieltyka en X30 Master, Corentin Grégoire en X30 Shifter et Roy Bakker en X30 Super Shifter.

Duffy Livingstone who will always be remembered as the father of the Go Kart died August 13, 2017 aged 92.  

 

Because of his sports car fabrication and racing activities Duffy often consulted with his friend Art Ingels who worked at the famous Kurtis Kraft race car plant in Glendale California. During a visit to Art's place Duffy saw the Ingels' creation; a small tubular frame attached to four wheels at each corner and powered by a lawn mower engine. Art's invention stuck in Duffy's mind. He immediately started to construct his own version of Art's machine after getting the OK from Art, one for himself and one for a friend. Then another friend wanted one and another and another. Duffy then called Art and organised a play day at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. The Rose Bowl at that time attracted quarter midgets and many of their owners also wanted to know where they could obtain these new fangled miniature cars. Duffy drew up plans and put together materials lists and started to supply kits of parts to the converts; Go Kart Manufacturing was born.

All of Duffy's years of involvement in kart racing as a driver, mechanic, kart manufacturer, co-founder of organised karting and the Go Kart Club of America which evolved into the International Kart Federation, have been honoured by the International Kart Federation through their Duffy Awards, a bronze statuette of 'Joe Karter' 12 inches tall mounted on a wooden base 6 inches high. These statuettes are presented every year to IKF National Champions. Duffy also served as an International Kart Federation Board Member and was a Past President of the International Kart Federation.

Incidentally there are YouTube videos of Duffy telling the story about the beginning of Karting and as well an entertaining recollection concerning the 1961 Nationals when the race distance was changed from 10 laps to 15 laps requiring Duffy to come up with an ingenious method of carrying extra fuel using an inner tube; all worth watching.

 

As well as karting Duffy enjoyed building and flying complex radio controlled multiengine model aircraft. As a young teenager back in Pasadena he worked in a model shop for 75 cents a week; there he developed a fondness for the scaled down aircraft.

 

Around the early 1990's Duffy retired to Grants Pass, Oregon from Costa Meza, California with his second wife Deedee. There they kept 7 dogs at one time, rescued three donkeys, a couple of goats and a few sheep; Duffy sure liked things with four legs and four wheels. Later Duffy and Deedee would relocate to Ooltewah, Tennessee.

 

In 1939 aged 14 when he started working in the Pasadena model shop his given name of Frank gave way to Duffy for some forgotten reason; however his massive contribution to the early days of the sport of Karting will never be forgotten.

Karting Loisir > USA

Clifton-Hill.jpg

 

Situé en bordure des chutes du Niagara, côté américain, le complexe de Clifton Hill offre de multiples attractions aux familles de touristes qui visitent en très grand nombre ce site emblématique. Une "piste" de karting sera prête à l'automne. Il s'agit cependant davantage de divertissement que de loisir. Premier point surprenant, les "pilotes" ne portent pas de casque. Les "karts", monplaces ou biplaces, très inspirés des origines du karting plutôt que par les dernières avancées de la technologie, sont équipés d'arceaux et de ceinture de sécurité. Le tracé très typé fête foraine comportera une sorte de rampe comme celles des parkings avant de plonger sur une descente genre toboggan géant.

D'autres sites exploitent cette veine comme celui de Branson dans le Missouri. Pas moins de 14 pistes différentes aux noms évocateurs sont proposées à un large public: Heavy Metal High Rise, Wild Woody, Lumberjack, Road Course, ou Classic Go-Karts en photo ci-dessous.

Les participants s'en donnent à coeur joie sur ces karting-manèges en arborant des sourires très américains. Bien que certaines doivent encore exister en Europe, ces attractions typées années 60 cèdent le pas sur le vieux continent à une offre de karting loisir très développée, plus orientée vers la vitesse et la sécurité, plus moderne et plus sûre.

CIK-Macao-2016-KZ-Leuillet.JPG

 

The CIK-FIA Asia-Pacific Championship (KZ & OK categories) is scheduled on the Macau track (MAC), from 8th to 10th December 2017. The 2016 edition was won by the French Tom Leuillet (Sodi / TM Racing / MG). The CIK-FIA Competition at Macao is highly regarded for its 1203 metre track, the warm welcome and for the excellent organisation by the Automobile General Association Macao-China. Beyond the sporting aspect, it is also a great opportunity for chassis and engine manufacturers to shine in front of the Asian market.

 

Like in 2016, for logistical reasons, Drivers will use the tyres of their choice from among those homologated by the CIK-FIA. They will bring their own tyres to Macau, with barcodes, which will be registered by the scrutineers of the event. Entry is open from August 17th on the site cikfia.com, at a cost of €458 until November 9th.
