One item of recent discussion on Ekarting was the concern by one person is that they knew a karter had serious health problems and was still racing.

I went to the IKF web site and did not see a medical release form. Thus, it does not appear that one is needed. :o

I find this interesting as the SCCA, Portland-based Cascade Sports Car Club and Spec-Miata series all require medical releases. I perceived karting to have more chances of serious injuries than auto racing. Especially in the shifter classes.

Link to SCCA's medical exam form info http://www.ikfkarting.com/Forms.html


Does Region 6 have addition requirements for such a release. If not, why?

This was just a question. Not a suggestion.

The responsible racers can help convince anyone in those situations not to race. :)

A few years ago we had to have a medical exam filled out to race in Canada. My Doc did it as part of routine physical, although he said it was more thorough. Looking back on it, I thought it was a pretty good thing and we all should be getting physicals every few years.
