International Karting Rule Changes

  2 July 2014

Decisions relating to karting from the World Motor Sport Council's June meeting in Munich, Germany. The decisions were made on the basis of proposals from the International Karting Commission.

Looks like they're cracking down on the use of exotic materials for brake discs, effectively banning aluminium, ceramic and composite materials, insisting the brake dics must be steel, stainless steel or cast iron.
