Everyone knows that wearing a mask is compulsory for everyone in the entire paddock of FIA Karting competitions. In the awnings, members of the same group are exempt from wearing masks.
Numerous posters, announcements and officials regularly remind people of this rule, sometimes individually and repeatedly. Tired of seeing some people attaching no importance to it, the stewards moved on to stage 2 by imposing fines for non-compliance with the FIA guidelines under articles 2.24 and 12.3 of the 2020 FIA Sporting Code.
On Friday evening in Adria, several repeat offender mechanics were caught without masks in the parc ferme. Their entrant was duly summoned to a meeting of the Sporting Commission to be fined €1,000. The amount was then reduced to €500, a 50% discount at the request of the higher authorities.
