This championship is for senior TKM Extreme Clubman drivers over several rounds held within a normal club meeting at various circuits based in the middle of the UK.

The TKM ‘Britain’s Finest’ event held at the end of each racing year proves to be very popular and is a superb way to end the year for TKM racers. The event is fully supported by Tal-Ko with technical back-up along with special awards.

TKM Britain’s Finest has now moved to Buckmore Park in October giving many drivers their first chance to race at this excellent circuit which has been closed for Motorsport UK racing during the covid period.

CLASSIC TKM WITH F100UK Spirit of the Nineties

Classic TKM is the name for the class providing a home for drivers racing with the karts and engines that helped lay the basis of the Formula TKM classes back in the 90s.

As the manufacturers of the TKM BT82 engine and owners of the TKM class we felt the time is right for us to fully back a professionally run championship for these now historic karts.

And we wanted to issue regulations which are a slightly simplified version of our full regs but which critically ensure the controls on the class which have resulted in such a long and successful category capable of developing world champions.

F100UK, Spirit of the 90s will be responsible for running the championship and most events. We in turn will ensure the regulations are valid, relevant and stable.

You can read their full technical regulations here:

The TKM Classic class also gets its own Motorsport UK licensed championship organised by the F100 Kart Club with a spread of six events with five to count.

Dates as follows with optional Friday and Saturday testing:
April 11       Three Sisters
May 9          Kimbolton
July 18        GYG
August 29   Buckmore Park (Subject to confirmation)
Sept 19       Clay Pigeon
Oct 17         Whilton Mill

The promoted events are of course backed up by the usual spread of club events at circuits.
Further details, regulations etc may be released in the light of further clarification from Motorsport UK. All events Motorsport UK permitted and requiring licence. All dates provisional and subject to Government Coronavirus restrictions.

Local TKM Club Championships
