Formula TKM has worked with drivers to create a new regional championship for competitors racing in the updated TKM Extreme Clubman sub-class in 2019.

 The TKM Extreme Clubman Regional Championship will be run over five rounds and is built around existing race meetings running the class to provide the drivers with their own low cost championship.

 The championship is organised by the TKM class owners Tal-Ko, in direct response to requests from drivers for a series similar to that previously run for three years in the Midlands area.

 Numbers in the category are expected to grow next year with changes in the 2019 regulations which brings them more up to date by allowing any kart two years or more old and with freedom to use the latest 50mm axle specification.

 Says TKM boss Alan Turney: “We are pleased to make possible this regional championship and would like to thank Motorsport UK for making it happen at short notice. It really will provide ultra-low costs for those drivers who don’t have the time or budget to race in the new British Kart Championships.”

 Rounds of the TKM Clubman Regional Championship are provisionally as follows:

 April 14                   Clay Pigeon

 July 20/21               Shenington Superprix

 August 10/11          Kimbolton Maxxis TKM Festival

 August 31/Sept 1    Rissington Midlands Champs

 TBC                        Whilton Mill Britain’s Finest

 In the spirit of TKM Clubman regulations, drivers will race on used tyres apart from at the Maxxis TKM Festival event. Drivers will be able to simultaneously race and score points in the circuit club championship as well as the regional champs. Full regulations are currently being prepared and registrations at £33 will open shortly from the website.
