GPO Karting - Comunicato n°27

18/02/11 GPOs 2011 : Time to Register!
GPO Karting - Grand Prix Open Karting - Varennes / Allier

GPOs 2011 have the wind in their sails. Since the opening of registrations on Web site, the French Championship has been the subject of extraordinary interest. This FFSA showcase event is attracting an increasing number of participants, in France and abroad. Then don't wait any further to joint the GPOs, while there is still time!




FFSA efforts to attract a large number of participants to its French Championship are being rewarded. The karting section of the Federation has worked first of all on the calendar, which was published before the end of last season and does not clash with the dates of important international meetings.


The choice of the Vega tyres has been successful. The outcome of the tender procedure was overwhelmingly well received. It will now be possible to race in KF2 and KF3 with the same tyres used in CIK-FIA races, thereby optimising preparation. This measure was very much welcomed by foreign teams that have already expressed their willingness to participate in the GPOs. First feedbacks on the Vega XH tyres used in KF3 at the recent Winter Cup are extremely positive in terms of performance and reliability.


The opening GPO, to be held in Varennes sur Allier on 26 and 27 March, will also have the advantage of taking place one month before the qualifying round for the European KF2 & KF3 Championships. It is evident that the French meeting will be an additional strong point for all the drivers tempted by the European adventure. The provisional list of entered drivers keeps getting longer, with Belgian, Swiss and Spanish participants, among others.


The original racing scheme adopted in 2009, with two races on Saturday and two races on Sunday, will also be chosen by the International Federation for its KF1 World Championship, highlighting the pioneering role of the GPOs in this area.


As for partners, the GPO effect is also beginning to emerge. Upon the initiative of a new and dynamic team in the Federation, proposals are growing in number and it is already evident that things will be moving, starting from Varennes.


The first GPO will be held in almost a month. Though registrations will be open up to 15 days before the date of the event, it is high time to log in to and validate one's registration to the French Championship via online payment.
