Includes ABkC  ‘0’ Plates and New Clubman ‘F’ Plate

Regulations have been released today for the premier event in the Formula TKM category, the Maxxis TKM Festival being held over its traditional date of August 10 – 12 at Kimbolton.

Now in its 21st year, the TKM Festival has been a superbly followed event combining a special mix of ultra-close racing with great off track spirit of friendship.

Supported once again by Maxxis Tyres, the event will continue its unique format which allows drivers to compete for the Festival and ABkC ‘0’ plates over the same weekend.

And for the first time this year drivers racing in the Clubman class will be able to race for a special TKM ‘F’ plate adding additional zest to the racing.

Once again the TV cameras which captured ‘the best kart race in the world’ at the Festival a few years ago, will be recording the action with the added benefit of a drone which brings an extra dimension to the coverage. Further details will be released soon on extra coverage for the event.

As usual the event offers a glittering array of trophies with the winners’ trophies listing a who’s who of top names who have graduated on to prestige drives within motor racing.

There are some special prizes and every driver will receive a gift-pack from Maxxis Tyres along with entry into a draw for £2,000 worth of TKM vouchers given by Tal-Ko Racing.

The provisional regulations just released give full details of the event and are available from the Tal-Ko website at https://www.tal-ko.com/championships-events/tkm-festival. Tyre order forms are also available at the same address and all of the above are also available on the Hunts Kart Racing Club website where entries are now open online.

Closing date for entries is Wednesday, August 1 at midnight. No late entries permitted and drivers are urged to enter promptly to ensure their place at this special event – one of the most successful in the history of British karting.

There is a huge amount of track time for every driver with Friday testing, Saturday practice, timed qualifying and two heats, with a further heat, pre-final and final on Sunday.

Novice drivers are welcome to take part in the Festival category to measure themselves against the cream of the class. But full MSA National A licences are required for the ABkC ’0’ section.

Alan Turney, boss of Tal-Ko, the owners of the TKM class, says: “The Maxxis TKM Festival always has a great atmosphere and the closest racing you will find anywhere. We are once again expecting a very strong entry and some great racing.”
