1961

First Karting meetings in Hungary (Budapest), in East Germany (Leipzig), in Austria (Donawitz on dirt tracks and Feldbach on asphalt) and in Uruguay (San José). On the “Pista Rossa” circuit in Milan, an event called “World Championship” is held on 17 September; however, retrospectively, in spite of being organised under the aegis of the FIA and of the Italian Federation, the event did not really deserve this title. Bobby Allen (USA) won the race reserved for 100cc karts, and Giulio Pernigotti (ITA), the 200cc race.
