The Club has grown rapidly over the years and has become the UK’s largest kart racing club with over 800 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 and the September race meeting in 2013 which will be replaced by the CIK-FIA World Championships).Each race meeting is professionally organised and has a user-friendly approach and regularly attracts over 150 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 the Mini, Junior and Senior Max classes and awards the highest placed ‘Rookie Cup’ driver with their very own trophy.
