Note you can download the race entry form from this website or you can enter online at GYG karting under owner driver and follow the link to the LGM race. Please note that the Yellow AMB transponder is used here and NOT the TAG blue transponder.
With 3 months to go before the first round of the LGM, nearly 100 drivers have already registered for the 2017 series. The entry lists are now shown under ‘driver list’. Remember you can still register for any of the classes with the series registration still at £100. The form is downloadable on this website. Don’t forget we will be running a support race for the new mini X30 class as well to run along side and will be great to see who will be the first winner of this class. The 10th issue of the Rivista magazine will be published at the end of this month with the latest news, views and gossip from the LGM series.
X30 Senior to remove front brakes at International level
Following CIK recent decisions of introducing the C-Under 15 license that allows 14 years old drivers to join the Senior classes and despite what we disclosed along the 2016 season and recently during the IAME International Final, we wish to inform that the use of any kind of front brakes will be forbidden in the X30 Senior class (excluding masters) already in 2017 in the two international events promoted by IAME.
After evaluating the scenario that we will face next year, we have come to the conclusion that with such new age limits, the number of X30 Junior drivers that will move to X30 Senior in 2017 will be much more than any usual season passage. For such reason, in order to support our sport and avoid the purchase of a front brakes system to all these drivers that would use it only for one season, we have decided to anticipate the decision originally scheduled for 2018, so after the expiry of the front brakes homologations.
