Motorsport UK has confirmed further information for the 2020 TKM British Kart Championships and announced a survey to get driver’s views on tyre regulations.

Drivers will have noticed that the registration for this year’s championship had increased by £100 to £250. Now Motorsport UK are able to confirm that this increase incorporates all costs for tyre testing in 2020, and tyre sealing previously paid for each time by the drivers. It also includes the cost of random drug and alcohol testing which will be taking place at all events during 2020.

The entry fee for each event will be £195 for the 2 day meeting and this covers the full weekend costs with no extras for camping, testing, etc.

Fuel will be a mandatory control fuel but following feedback from competitors it will be a 95 octane with minimal cleansing agents. Fuel will be supplied at all events at a reasonable price. Fuel testing will also be carried out at each round.

Wet tyre arrangements are also being revised for 2020 and drivers are about to be sent a survey giving them a direct choice in making a final decision on allocation and use of wet tyres.

Says TKM boss Alan Turney: “Quite understandably our drivers wanted clarification on some points before committing to the championship. We have had a lot of discussion on plans for this year with Motorsport UK mainly aimed at giving drivers the best possible value and equality of racing.”

Motorsport UK karting manager Dan Parker said: “Driver satisfaction is vital to us and we really do listen. On the question of wet tyres we have taken the decision to put a number of alternatives to drivers and see which they prefer.
