Tal-Ko Racing’s Joe Forsdyke has taken the Super 1 Formula TKM Extreme national title by the narrowest margins after a thrilling final showdown at the PFI circuit.

Joe went into the last final behind James Ogden on points and knowing he had it all to do. Ogden started from the back of the grid and fought his way through to 4th place. But Forsdyke took the win to put the two drivers on equal points.

The tie decider came down to dropped scores with Forsdyke taking that decider by just five points. “It’s a fantastic result and I am so pleased” he said. “The racing has been so close all year so a tie for top points was fitting.

“The Tal-Ko Veloce kart has been brilliant in both wet and dry conditions.”

Second in the last final by just six hundredths of a second was TKM Scholarship winner Matt England also on a Veloce. And fastest lap in the final was set by Simon Vercoe, also on the same type kart.

Said Tal-Ko boss Alan Turney: “Joe has driven solidly all year so this was thoroughly deserved. And I’m so pleased to see Matt England end his scholarship year with a podium in both finals. He has learned a lot.

“The results from this weekend alone underline the ability of the Veloce kart to provide race winning performance in any hands at the highest level.”

In Juniors it was almost as close, with a win for Arran Mills in the last final just giving him a one point advantage over Alex Forward with Matthew Graham in 3rd place just four points behind. The title could have gone any one of three ways. Again another closely fought championship.

Added Alan Turney: “Once again we have had some breath-taking races in Juniors and Seniors throughout the year and the suspense has been held until quite literally the very last lap of both finals proving yet again how close and fantastic the TKM racing is. TKM offers the best racing at affordable costs compared to any other karting class and that’s at the very core of the class.”
