Answer The Question! (Poll #8)

by Mark Wicks 26 August 2015

Today's question: Should two-way radio communication between the pits and driver be allowed during racing?

The current KA ruling for sprint karting bans systems that provide either voice or data transmission to or from the kart (two-way radio communication is, however, permitted in endurance racing).

Now, karting is regularly touted as the training ground for professional car racers, and in all forms of professional car racing, driver radio communication is used. In fact, in some categories it is mandatory.

Therefore, should it be allowed in sprint karting to assist current karters prepare for the next step in their racing career? Or are pit/driver radios simply over the top for go-kart racing?
