 CRG Romania message

For a better understanding of the message that CRG Romania wishes to transmit, we will try to provide some definitions , national and international organizational details of the 4-wheel sports , especially those referring to karting:

Let's start with the definition of kart from The International Sport Code elaborated by FIA (Federation Internationale de l'Automobile):

"Art. A kart is a land single seater vehicle without a roof or a cockpit, without suspensions and with or without bodywork elements with 4 non aligned wheels that are in contact with the ground, the 2 front ones of which control the direction and the other 2 rear ones, connected by a one piece axle, transmit the power. The main parts are the chassis (including the bodywork), the tyres and the engine".

In order to understand the international governing and organizing of 4-wheel motorsports , on FIA official site , , at Sport/Championships section , one can see all the world championships that FIA manages , and at the 8-th position is The World Karting Championship . It is understood that FIA manages all the 4-wheel sports from karting level , up to Formula 1 or WRC .

In Romania, The National Authority for Sport and Youth , ANST , coordinating all the sporting federations, has a "very generous" offer in the field of 4-wheel sports, considering national federations for automobile sports and karting sport as well , namely:

FRAS, The Romanian Federation of Automobile Sport , established in 2005 , has over 1000 licensed drivers and is organized complying romanian legislation, corresponding to the FIA Statute. FRAS covers all National Championships in rallies , karting, hillclimb, offroad, rallycross, etc . FRAS is the local authority in motorsport, having therefore a dispute with Automobile Club of Romania (ACR), still unsolved by the FIA.

FRK, The Romanian Federation for Karting , not coresponding with any international sporting Federation, thus not complying romanian sporting legislation, but benefiting of a controversial civil court decision, had been established afterwards, in 2011. FRK , supported by ACR, has statutory provisions referring only to karting. In order to limit FRAS to join FIA as a full member in its rights, ACR rapidly delegated FIA sporting power for karting, on yearly renewal basis, to the recently established Romanian Karting Federation.  

 In the end, as a result of FIA indecision with regards on FRAS affiliation, meanwhile tolerating ACR, a civil association, as sporting power despite its inactivity in the field of sport, 2 perfectly legal federations for karting coexist on the territory of Romania: FRAS coordinating Dunlop National Karting Championship, on the other hand FRK, linked to CIK-FIA through ACR.
