Thanks to the FIA Motorsport Development Programme, our president Ermias Ayele and the EMSA board the FIA has donated EMSA two (2) 4-stroke 200cc go-karts (+ helmets, gloves, overalls, cones and more) to kickstart karting and grassroots Motorsport development in Ethiopia.
And they're finally here!!
This donation is part of and only the beginning of a long term project designed to introduce a fantastic category of motorsport in Ethiopia for competitors of all levels and experience, but especially this is a great opportunity for new competitors and young drivers who dream of entering the field of motorsport and becoming successful race car drivers.
The go-karts will be officially presended to EMSA by FIA president Jean Todt during the upcoming FIA African Regional Congress hosted in Addis Ababa next week. During the congress a small karting slalom demonstration will also take place (we will post more information about this in the next days).
