More than 70 drivers have signed up for the 2015 TKM Club Championships, expanded this year to three regional events across the South, Midlands and North.
Entries are still coming in for the series which reached its official closing date on March 2 and registrations will still be accepted but will be at a higher rate and are subject to availability.
There is an added exclusive bonus to every driver who registers – free trial subscription to Karting Magazine. Karting mag will be giving great coverage to the TKM club championships in the magazine, its digital version and through its website at kartingmagazine.com and Facebook page.
The first event in the championships takes place at Hooton Park near Chester on Sunday, March 15 to launch the Northern series. The other championships get underway in April at Clay Pigeon and Shenington.
It was in 2012 the first series was launched in the Midlands with classes for Juniors and Seniors at Kimbolton, Shenington, Rissington and Whilton Mill. The idea was to enable inter circuit TKM club championship racing without the need to travel the length and breadth of the country. It proved an instant success.
Last year a Northern series was added racing at Hooton Park, Rowrah, Wombwell and Three Sisters and saw an immediate increase in TKM racing in that area. A Clubman category was also added to the Midlands.
Now for this year the Southern series will feature racing at Dunkeswell, Llandow, Clay Pigeon, Forest Edge and Buckmore Park. In addition all rounds of the TKM club championships will this year feature a round at the Maxxis TKM Festival at Kimbolton in August with full TV coverage on Motors TV for both the event and the TKM club championships.
This year for the first time points will be scored from final grid position as well as final result to reward drivers for consistent results in the heats. The organisation and co-ordination of the series is carried out through class owners Tal-Ko Racing with regular bulletins to all drivers and a newly expanded website facility this year. Regulations and registration forms are available at www.tal-ko.com. Additional registrations should be sent by post or email to Tal-Ko Racing.
