2014 Helmet Info

There has been some discussion about whether IKF will change any helmet rules for 2014.

The following is from the 2013 IKF rules manual and we have confirmation that the 2014 IKF rules will be the same. The following are the helmet specifications that will still be allowed in 2014.

Per IKF 105.1.6.1 HEAD GEAR: Full coverage (full face) helmets designed for competitive motorsports use are mandatory and must comply with one of the following:

 

Snell Foundation Specifications Legal Until
2005 SA and M 12/20/2015
2005 K 12/20/2015
CMS 2007 (youth helmet) 12/20/2015
CMR 2007 (youth helmet) 12/20/2015
M 2010 12/20/2020 Go-karts only. Not approved for Champ Karts
SA 2010 12/20/2020 Go-karts and Champ Karts
   
SFI Specifications Legal Until
24.1/2005 (youth helmet) 12/20/2015
31.1/2005 12/20/2015
41.1/2005 12/20/2015
24.1/2010 (youth helmet) 12/20/2020
31.1/2010 12/20/2020 Go-karts and Champ Karts
41.1/2010 12/20/2020 Go-karts only. Not approved for Champ Karts

  

The Helmet rating should be on the inside of the helmet, but sometimes is hard to find. Here is a link for searching for Snell ratings for several helmet models.

Update from Rules and Scheduling BoD Meeting

Quick update from the Board of Directors meeting for rules and scheduling….

No real serious rule changes, just spent a lot of time cleaning them up and attempting to eliminate redundancy and ambiguity.

Pending a final board vote it is looking like we will have 8 races and 1 throw-away race this season. Will post the dates when finalized. In order to have 8 races we are actually scheduling the 8th race on what would normally be the “Rainout day/Fun day” What this would mean is if any of the races are rained out, we would not have a rain make-up day. 2013 was the first time we have had a rainout in several years so may not be so risky and is the only way we could fit in 8 races.

SRK is staying with MG tires which is aligned with Region 6 Gold Cup.

That is about it for now…
