Welcome to our Spring Special race meeting – our charity event for 2019!
All of the documents relating to this weekend’s race meeting have now been published and are available below…

SPRING SPECIAL – RAISING MONEY FOR CANCER RESEARCH UK!
Our Spring Special meeting will be supporting and raising money for Cancer Research UK.  We have a few activities planned to try and raise some funds for this worthy cause – we hope that you’ll help us by joining us and donating if you can.

Tyre Changing Competition:
Sunday lunch break – £5 each – Prize for the fastest time!

Charity Raffle:
Tickets £1 per strip available from Race Control

Sign & Donate:
Blake Angliss & Aidan Evans have very kindly and generously agreed to help us raise some extra money for CRUK this weekend by having some special decals made for their karts!  They’ll be walking around the paddock on Saturday asking people to sign the bodywork and give a small donation.  They’ll then use this specially signed bodywork o n their karts for racing on Sunday!

All of the money raised from these activities will be donated to Cancer Research UK – please give generously if you can.

PLEASE BE AWARE:  As this is a 2 day meeting, only drivers entered to race will be able to practice on the Saturday, as per Motorsport UK permit restrictions.

Please note that Honda Cadet will be having standing starts at this meeting (details of the new procedure can be found HERE).  All other classes will be rolling starts.
PLEASE ENSURE THAT ALL ELECTRICAL CABLES ARE COVERED OVER IN THE PADDOCKS.

 

We would like to remind you that the main paddock area is for ‘working’ vehicles only and ALL cars and non-essential vehicles should be parked in the rear paddock.
We would also appreciate it if all roadways could be left clear at all times and vehicles do not block emergency access.

We also remind you that bicycles, scooters, segways, skateboards etc are strictly prohibited in both the main and rear paddock areas.

While we understand holding down awnings is not an easy task, please, where possible use the ‘tie down loops’ provided (if they are missing or damaged please let us know). If you have the ability to fix ‘rawl bolts/hooks please let us know in advance to seek approval and positioning. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD PEGS/SPIKES BE HAMMERED INTO THE TARMAC (Non compliance could render your entry/membership void) We will wherever possible assist you to secure your equipment but in a professional and ‘minimal tarmac damaging’ way.

We thank you in advance for your co-operation.

TVKC would like to draw your attention to the 2019 Motorsport UK Regulation:

(U)12.7. For Short Circuit Karting only, engines must not be run in the pits or paddock. The Chief Scrutineer may permit a Competitor to start their engine in a designated area only as identified by the Chief Scrutineer.
