How long will the rise of TKM last?


Welcome to our weekly ‘Question of the week’ feature. Every Monday we’ll be throwing out questions for you to answer and debate. If you have any suggestions of your own, send them in to news@kartingmagazine.com

Question: How long will the huge grids in TKM last?

Super One Commentator, Alan Taddei, described this years grid in the TKM Extreme class as “the greatest come back in sporting history!”

He was of course referring to the fact that only 9 drivers drivers took part last year and at Rowrah for the first round this year there were 47 drivers! We have the likes of Phil Smith and Charlie Bruce-White (British champion in 2002) returning to what promises to be one of the most exciting Super One seasons for years!

It’s really created a buzz around UK Karting but how long will the big grids last? Will this be where drivers in classes that are struggling out turn to, or will it just be something that starts to fade away after this year?

The other classes available for Juniors and Seniors are of course Rotax, X30 and now the new OK class among others. But TKM provides a slightly cheaper way of racing at national level.

However with arrive and drive and Pro Kart racing both on the up will that become tough competition for TKM?

Will this be the start of a new era for TKM or just a blip that people will remember for years to come?

We want to know what you think!
