Overseers of a go-kart track where a 15-year-old girl died last month are seeking international advice on new safety measures to prevent future tragedies. The measures proposed by the Hong Kong Kart Club, the governing body of the Diamond Coast International Kart Circuit in Tuen Mun, include making race suits compulsory for kart drivers, and installation of an alarm system on the track. It is seeking expert advice from the Commission Internationale de Karting, the international governing body for karting. The circuit remains closed in the meantime. Amy Rose Coxall, a Year 11 student at Island School, died at the Diamond Coast International Kart Circuit on February 17 after her scarf became entangled in a wheel of the kart she was driving. The accident exposed the fact that no government agency regulates the sport, which has become popular in recent years. The club outlined the proposed measures at a meeting with government officials early this month, according to a paper submitted to the Legislative Council by the Home Affairs Bureau. As well as tighter dress rules for drivers and an alarm system, the proposed measures include an observer to watch the track and installation of more safety signs at conspicuous locations. Better staff training, monitoring and reporting procedures to heighten safety awareness of drivers and staff were also suggested. The international review has been sought at the request of the bureau. The circuit, developed and operated by Hong Kong Kartingsport Association, which is a member of the Hong Kong Kart Club, opened in 2007. The club receives an annual subsidy from the government under the Sports Subvention Scheme administrated by the Leisure and Culture Services Department. In the last financial year it received about HK$500,000, the paper said. The circuit operator is required to submit reports to the department and the club on any accident at the circuit that requires medical treatment or hospital admission. Apart from the fatality, three less severe accidents had been reported, including a security guard being knocked down by a kart and admitted to hospital. The operator has insurance coverage of up to HK$ 10 million. Legislators had accused the government and the club of failing to regulate go-karting. They also said people took karting too lightly. A go-kart is a small, open, four-wheeled vehicle. They can reach maximum speeds of 150km/h. No driving licence is required to drive a go-kart, but drivers must be more than 11 years old, and beginners have to be trained. Minor injuries are frequent on go-karting circuits. But in January 2001, a 20-year old student was seriously injured when her scarf got caught in the wheels of a go-kart in Macau.
