The VKA is adding this to guidelines .....starting immediately....

"On board cameras must be mounted by bolt to kart. Cameras CANNOT be attached to driver or helmet."


FYI .. below are a few examples of various kart organization rules regarding on board video cameras.. general theme here is they don't allow a camera attached to the helmet (inside or outside), and don't allow cameras attached to the drivers body.


National Kart Alliance:
20.1.1 Cameras & Camera Mounting: 20.1.1.1: Up to two (2) cameras (Go Pro or similar) per kart is allowed. Each camera and clear protective casing is to have the last name of the Legal Entrant clearly printed on it.
20.1.1.2: Cameras must be hard mounted by bolt and nut to a driver fairing or side pod. Mounting by use of any form of adhesive is prohibited. The Race Director or Tech Official may require additional measures.
20.1.1.3: Mounting any camera to the helmet in any way is prohibited at all times. This includes any form of mounting to the shell of the helmet, or the mounting of any type of video or camera system inside the helmet, such as in the viewport.

Kart Racers of America
Video Cameras are allowed, video cameras must be mounted to the chassis or the bodywork using bolts and securely in place. Cameras can not be attached to the driver or the helmet. In the event of a flip or contact the camera could cause injury.

Super Kart USA:
20.2.7.2.2. Identification: All cameras used at SKUSA events must be registered prior to use and have the SKUSA inspection sticker clearly visible on the camera body. Additionally each camera must be clearly marked with the owner’s name and mobile phone number. Cameras without identification may not be returned. Loss of the camera on the racing surface may result in penalties, including loss of positions, loss of points, and/or monetary fines.
20.2.7.2.3. Mounting Procedures: The following mounting procedures must be followed at all times; all cameras shall be subject to inspection and removal at any time by tech personnel. Competitors in violation will be subject to penalties, including loss of positions, loss of points, or monetary fines. Under no circumstances are cameras allowed on the driver’s person or helmet. This includes any form of mounting to the shell of the helmet, or the mounting of any type of video or camera system inside the helmet, such as in the viewport. Mounting on radiator or side pod is no longer permitted.
20.2.7.2.3.1. Cameras must be hard-mounted by bolt and nut. Mounting by use of any form of adhesive is prohibited. 20.2.7.2.3.2. Cameras may be mounted on front panel (as long as number plate is not obscured), main frame rails or welded seat strut.
20.2.7.2.3.3. The Race Director or Tech Official may require additional measures.
