1971

François Goldstein (BEL) continues with his domination: once again he is World Champion and European Champion. He creates a sensation at the World Championship held in Turin on the “Pista Cerrina” by competing with “extra” wide Goodyear rear tyres. He also technically assists his compatriot M. Wouters, who carries off the CIK Juniors’ Cup in Horrem (DEU). Germany finishes ahead of Italy by one single point in the Nations’ Championship. The CIK expands from 12 to 15 national delegates. Charles Defrancesco (CHE) takes over from Pierre Ugeux (BEL) as President of the CIK.

In 1971, the CIK imposes a new noise limit (90 dB maximum), which compels the competitors to fit silencers on their karts.
