CLASSIC TKM WITH F100UK Spirit of the Nineties

Classic TKM is synonymous with the most fondest of memories from a period in time that defined this racing class, Formula TKM.

Providing a home for drivers wishing to race karts and engines in period that helped lay the foundations of fairness and fun for 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 8 events with seven to count.
