The History of the Karting World Championships

A search on the internet provided me with only sparse facts about the Karting World Championships. As far as I understand there was a World Championship since 1964 which was contested by Formula K karts from 1981 to 1992 and by Formula Super A karts since 1993.

Since 1988 there also was a second World Championship for Formula A karts (ex-Super 100).

I don’t know whether there is a 2004 karting World Champion or not. I don’t know either whether the Formula A WC was contested at the same events as the Formula Super A WC. And I don't know any exact dates.

Can anyone shed more light on the history of the Karting World Championships or guide me to a website with more informations?

David Forè won it again in '04. I dont know much about the world champs myself though, so I can't tell you much more.

There were also World Champs for Formula C (most recent being 2000) and Juniors. There were also "World Champs" as such before 1964, often held at Nassau (hence the term "Nassau panel", which was first seen at this event), but whether these were official or not I'm not sure - they may have been licenced by a US organisation, similar to the way nowadays we have a "World Karting Association" which in effect only exists for America. But, to fill in gaps in your list before we branch off...

2001 (Montreal, Canada; Salbris, France; Sarno, Italy; Mariembourg, Belgium; Kerpen, Germany)

2002 (Mariembourg, Belgium; Alaharma, Finland; Braga, Portugal; Salbris, France; La Conca, Italy)
Formula A (Coupe de Monde - La Conca, Italy)

2003
Formula A: (Sarno, Italy)

2004
Formula A: (La Conca, Italy)
1. Davide Forè (ITA)
2. Arnaud Kozlinski (FRA)
3. Bas Lammers (NED)

Formula Super A no longer exists from 2003 onwards, hence why it appears "cancelled" in your list.

This is a handy page on this topic.

Hope that helps

Oops. Sorry!

But I'm afraid the rules on this forum prevent me from editing my post & correcting my fault.

If you go to www.cikfia.com you'll be able to see full results going back 15 years, I think with dates as well.

Up until 2000, the World Championship was run at a single event and drivers were allowed to enter if they had done sufficiently well in their continental championships. Up until then, there were World Championships for FSA, FA, FC, and FE (Superkarts), although the Superkarts hasn't been run every year. All those classes and JICA, ICA, ICC and ICE/Superkart Div2 have/had European championships which are usually multi-round. As an aside, the European is mostly seen as more prestigious as it's harder to win a series.

In 2001 and 2002, only FSA had a WC, and it was run over five different rounds, often with the European FA Championship or World Cup. In 2003, the factory teams boycotted FSA to make a point about their disagreement with four-stroke engines being planned for 05 (since dropped) and the class was dropped from the calendar. That year we switched to continental championships and a one-off WC again which is how it is until something else goes wrong! The general feeling is that the single event is more entertaining etc.

On that list, Mike Wilson is British although he raced on an Italian license (don't worry about changing it )

forgot to add: there was never an official junior WC, but there was a "Five Continents Cup". I might be being unncessarily pedantic but there ya go

ReWind: There is a book about Birel which will tell you a lot more information but obviously it focuses on the Birel company. Can't remember what it's called but its on Amazon and www.kartingmagazine.com. I don't think there's any general books, perhaps I should write one

Alex, I can't remember much about FC (I never went to a race) but I think it's on cikfia.com. It was dropped for 2002 and replaced by Super ICC

ReWind, it's good to see people are interested in this stuff

There is also a Teams Championship:
2001 - Tonykart Racing Team
2002 - Tonykart Racing Team
2003 - Tonykart Racing Team
2004 - Sodikart

It was also awarded years ago but I don't know the stats
