1976

The CIK launches Formula Europe, with which the principle of the periodical homologation of chassis is introduced, a procedure aimed at freezing technical evolutions and, therefore, costs. As a result of a collision, Felice Rovelli (ITA) is black-flagged and disqualified at first, and then he is declared World Champion several weeks after the event, which is held at Hagen (DEU). Leif Larsson (SWE), who is initially declared winner, is moved back to second place. A European Championship is created for 250cc gearbox karts: its first venue is the automobile circuit of Oulton Park and it sees the victory of Dave Buttigieg (GBR). The European 125cc Championship is held in Fano (ITA), where Franco Baroni (ITA) dominates the three finals at the wheel of a chassis propelled by a BMC engine of his own making. The future Formula One Driver Andrea de Cesaris (ITA) lands the CIK Juniors’ Cup at Wohlen (CHE). Italy wins the last European Nations’ Championship: for lack of participating countries, it is deleted the following year.
