As members of the karting community, you may have witnessed or heard of several recent accidents in Cadet Racing where the Zip Storm Nose Cone has caused a shovel effect and contributed to karts being launched into the air, resulting in young drivers being injured.
This cannot be allowed to continue, We urge you to sign this petition, which will be forwarded to the MSA, Zip and any relevant authorities for the removal of the current shape fairing. There has been no evidence that the current shape has a speed advantage, over a run of the mill universal fairing.
We are appealing to the people who govern our sport to listen to their customers and ensure the safety of our children.
We, the undersigned, call on the MSA to ban the current scoop nose cone and request the redesign of a new safer nose cone for the Zip Storm by January 2010.
The Petition to the MSA re: Safety & the Zip Storm Nose Cone petition to Motor Sports Association was written by Joanne Fabby and is in the category Sports at GoPetition.
