We are also delighted to confirm that award-winning broadcasters Alpha Live will once again be providing comprehensive live streaming of each race meeting, taking coverage to each corner of the globe.
“The TKM classes continue to provide some of the closest and most competitive racing in the BKC and also at a fraction of the cost of some other classes” says Motorsport UK Karting Manager Dan Parker.
“We have listened to the feedback from the TKM community and also the comments from competitors in the 2021 Championship to make adjustments to the 2022 BKC offering where possible. We very much look forward to visiting some new venues with the TKM Championship during the season ahead whilst also visiting firm favorites over the course of the year.“
TKM’s Alan Turney is equally excited by the season ahead.
“We looked at the feedback from our drivers and we have given them exactly what they asked for” he said. “More test time, more rounds, a fresh track and lower costs. So it really is a win – win for TKM drivers”.
More information on the registration process will be issued in the coming weeks.
