Triple boost for TKM Festival

TKM Festival

The Maxxis TKM Festival at Kimbolton, recognized as one of the most prestigious events in the UK karting calendar, will give drivers (including novices) the chance to compete for the traditional Festival / Elite races as well as points for those registered in the three TKM Club Championships.

Those with full licences will also be able to compete in separate races for the coveted ABkC TKM ‘O’ Plate titles and there will be a grid of Honda Cadets for the first time, a move made because of the large amount of interest shown in the TKM classes by Honda drivers and their parents.

TKM boss Alan Turney explained: “We are delighted to be able to include all these additional bonuses to the event. It really gives something extra for everyone”

“We are pleased to include the Honda Cadets because we have seen great interest from this class as the youngsters move up and it is a natural step from Honda to TKM in terms of the attraction of the class.”

Hunts Kart Club have organised the event so it will be possible for TKM drivers to race just for the O-Plate, or to also race separately in the Festival races. All it will require is an extra entry and set of tyres.

“We know there will be a number of drivers wanting
to get the most out of the weekend by racing in both. It offers incredible value for money. And if anyone manages to pull off the double of a win in both then there will be an additional special prize!” said Alan.

The event takes place at Kimbolton, the home of Hunts Kart Racing Club, over the weekend of August 7th–9th with Friday testing and then racing all weekend. The event is covered by Motors TV who will be recording items on the events of the weekend including the Honda Cadets.
