CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP: Round 1 – 5th April

TVKC newTrent Valley Kart Club will be holding the first round of it’s 2015 Club Champinship this weekend at PFi and what a weekend it’s going to be!

With the visiting LGM Series and X30 Tour drivers also present this weekend, the entry level is very healthy at 275 drivers.

Standing Starts will continue for the Honda, Mini Max & Junior Max classes.

As this race meeting will be busy one, we would kindly remind everyone that all non-essential vehicles MUST be parked in the rear paddock – leaving the main paddock area to working vehicles ONLY.  We would also ask that, on the ground of safety, the gangways/access lanes in both paddocks be left CLEAR at all times please

Please also be aware that over the last few race meetings we seem to have had quite a few lower place trophies that haven’t been collected.  This may be because people don’t realise how many trophies are due in each class!  So to help, please find below, a list of how many trophies will be awarded in each class this weekend…

2015 Gearbox GP Cancelled

TVKC newIt is with regret that Trent Valley Kart Club announces the cancellation of the 2015 MSA British (Short Circuit) Gearbox Kart Grand Prix that was scheduled to take place on Fulbeck kart track on 25th & 26th April 2015.

Having revived the event in 2014, the Club were keen to build on that success in 2015. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, a last minute race calendar alteration by other parties now means a serious clash of gearbox events. So, as unfortunately, a suitable alternative date couldn’t be found in the increasingly hectic race schedules– TVKC has taken the very difficult decision to cancel the event.

We would like to take this opportunity to apologise to all the competitors involved and those that have shown their support for the event. We hope a more suitable date can be found for 2016!

The Latest Improvement!

#KartpixTrent Valley Kart Club is continuously looking at ways to improve and enhance the facilities and infrastructure at PF International kart circuit. Be they big projects or small undertakings, all of the changes are made for the benefit, comfort and safety of TVKC Members and Officials.


The latest activities have been taking place in the Scrutineering bay! The final piece of an ongoing improvement to this area of the PFi facility was to refurbish the flooring.

Following several attempts to paint the floor without much success, TVKC decided to install Resin floor tiles. These tiles offer a smart & modern appearance and are dust free, durable & fuel resistant. They are also anti slip and damp free and create a warm and easy to clean work area.

Congratulations!
