There has been some questions about rear bar requirements from 1 Jan 2016
From the rule book page 131:
2016 for any meetings ( i.e. race meetings) a CIK-FIA Homologated Rear Impact protection device must be fitted.
For ANY level race meeting the CIK/FIA plastic bar is compulsory.
Existing rear bars can be used for practice any other days excluding race meeting listed practice days.
Please also note the rules on page 131 with regards to chassis modification, See more at: http://www.karting.net.au
