ASN Canada’ resignation from FIA, new website for ASQ, 2020 licences
2019 will end shortly. The last season has been wonderful for the Coupe de Montréal championship and for the Club de karting de Montréal’s members. The interest for kart racing has peaked in the last season thanks to you drivers.
Some recent news brought a lot of reaction in the motorsport community.
Canada FIA’ resigned from the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile
During the FIA general meeting on December 6th, we learned that the national sanctioning body ASN Canada FIA had resigned from the International Automobile Federation with effect from December 31, 2019. ASN Canada officially issued a press release on its website regarding this decision. The press release is available here
What are the implications for the Coupe de Montréal karting championship? For the moment, none. The Coupe de Montréal being a regional championship, this has little impact at the moment because the governing body of the championship is Auto Sport Québec (event permits, licences, etc.). There will certainly be a transition period before the establishment of a new national sanctionning body affiliated to the FIA, but the repercussions will not be very visible for our drivers. We will keep you informed as more information becomes available
New website for Auto Sport Québec
Auto Sport Québec released a new website. A little technical problem forced them to change their domain name which is now www.auto-sport-quebec.com. The new site is not fully completed but you can now visit it and see the improvements. The 2020 licence application form is available on this new site. For the moment only the paper form is available but we were told that an electronic application system should be available during the winter.
