|The CIK-FIA has registered no fewer than 420 entries for the CIK-FIA European KF2 and KF3 Championships Qualifications, which represents an increase of more than 10% over last year’s figures and confirms the success of the change of technical regulations introduced at the beginning of 2007 with the «KF» engines. |
The European KF2 (former ICA) and KF3 (former ICA/Junior) Championships have always been very popular with Drivers, so in 2001 the CIK-FIA introduced the principle of regional qualifying events. These Qualifications have the distinctive feature of being held on the same weekend, on next 10-13 July 2008, at three different circuits as Europe has been divided into three regions for the occasion.
Drivers from the so-called “northern” region will perform on the circuit of Göteborg (Sweden). Drivers from the so-called “western” region will meet in Alcaniz (Spain) and “central” region entrants will compete in Sant’Egidio alla Vibrata (Italy).
These qualifying events will serve to designate the 72 Drivers (proportionally to the number of entries in each of the regions) who will compete in the CIK-FIA European Championship Final.
KF2 and KF3 Drivers will be gathered for these regional selections but they will have separate Finals: the European KF2 title will be decided on 3 August 2008 in Braga (Portugal), whereas KF3 Juniors will fight it out for their own European title on 7 September 2008 in Varennes s/Allier (France).
