The CIK-FIA’s mission is to implement international categories which can very well lie within the scope of national or even regional competitions.
The CIK-FIA has always chosen to govern categories for Drivers who are old enough to subscribe an international licence (minimum required age: 12 years old). The management of any classes below is left up to the ASNs.
The CIK-FIA categories are divided into three large families: direct-drive karts, gearbox karts and Superkarts. All these karts have in common the 2-stroke engine technology.
