2002

The “large format” World Championship is continued and hosted by Belgium, Finland, Portugal, France and Italy. Giedo Van der Garde (NLD) comes out as the Champion and Tony-Kart lands the Teams’ title for the second consecutive year. The World Cup organised for Formula A is won by Jérôme d’Ambrosio (BEL); the European and Asia-Pacific Championships of that category see the respective victories of David Hemkemeyer (DEU) and Alessandro Manetti (ITA). Sebastian Buemi (CHE) takes the European Juniors’ Champion title. Martin Hines (GBR), who was already entered in the CIK-FIA Championships at the end of the 1960’s, takes the opportunity of the revival of the European Superkart Championship to come back to competition as a Driver and, at the age of 56, he adds a new title to his record. Further to a tender procedure, single-make tyres are imposed in several CIK-FIA Championships.
