Trent Valley Kart Club was established in 1996 following the opening of PF International kart circuit at the end of 1994 when it was first constructed. The Club has grown rapidly over the years and has become the UK’s largest kart racing club with over 900 racing members. The Club is high profile in terms of professionalism and state of the art karting facilities and is very keen to evolve the sport of karting and push it to the fore front of worldwide motorsport.
TVKC provides a high quality and competitive Club Championship and Winter Series. These Club rounds are held on the first weekend of every month (excluding August which is replaced by Kartmasters Grand Prix).
Each race meeting is professionally organised and has a user-friendly approach and regularly attracts, on average, over 200 entries each time. The range in driver ability is very varied. From the best drivers in the UK and abroad to the novice drivers who are just starting out – everyone is catered for! An added incentive for Novice and National B licence holders is the TVKC ‘Rookie Cup’. This scheme applies to all classes and awards the highest placed ‘Rookie Cup’ driver with their very own trophy. More information about the ‘Rookie Cup’ can be found HERE
Over the Club’s history, many TVKC Club Champions have been crowned with many of them moving on within the world of motorsport. Take a look at the Club’s Roll Of Honour
TVKC also organises the annual blue ribbon event in UK Karting – the MSA Kartmasters British Kart Grand Prix. This prestigious race weekend takes place every August and has become the biggest one-off kart race meeting on the UK calendar! The meeting attracts over 250 drivers from the UK and abroad and their ages range from 8yrs upwards. The entrants compete for a prize fund in excess of £10,000 and the coveted ‘GP’ plates. Kartmasters always provides some excellent racing and an awesome atmosphere. The event boasts over 2000 spectators and all of the action is captured by film cameras and broadcast on television.
