I haven't got a problem with the ARKS test. It does weed out some people who are totally unsuitable - I only failed a very, very small handful of drivers in my time as a tester but you really wouldn't have wanted them on track. At least one went away and acted on my recommendations and a couple of years later proudly came up to me at Rissi and said I was the springboard for his kart racing. He was only at the back of the TKM Extreme field but the smile on his face was worth it.

We race in "non MSUK" series as well, and IMO a lack of basic checking on drivers is a problem. The ARKS test is so cursory and really well done by instructors in my experience, it really does help even 8 year olds prove their capabilities.
