Happy new year, it’s going to be a good one!
Round 1 is approaching so we would like to fill you in on a few developments and key dates.
Today we have 31 drivers registered, which has had us asking the circuits for extra track time to fit everyone in. This is a most unexpected but nice problem to have, so thank you all for your support. We will be capping registrations at 45 so if you know anyone who is interested, please tell them to get a wriggle on to avoid disappointment.
We’ve been updating the website so you can now order tyres and enter the race meetings. Please have a look if you haven’t already done so.
There is a bit of necessary complexity to tyre purchasing to enable us to manage the 1 set of slicks for the championship rule. If you have any questions on this please let us know on Facebook or reply to this email.
We have also added some info on camping and transponder hire to the track info on the homepage.
Key date: Orders for race tyres for Round 1 must be completed by the end of February. This is the only way we can guarantee that they will be ready on time. All race slicks will be delivered to Hooton Park (or a circuit of your choice if you are not joining us until later in the championship).
Wets and practice slicks can be delivered there too if you wish or you can choose to have them delivered anywhere in the UK when you place your order. Any orders for tyres placed after this date may not be with you in time for Hooton.
Engines: We will be checking for compliance with the Formula TKM fiche, so if you are in any doubt we suggest that you have your engines checked by a reputable builder.
Regs: One minor change to the minimum age, making it year of 16th birthday rather than 16.
Round 1: We intend to arrive on the Friday. If you are there too we will do our best to let you have your tyres early but please don’t assume this will be possible. Camping is available for both Friday and Saturday free of charge.
In case you missed it, Racewear.co.uk have kindly donated a fully customised race suit, for which we will be holding a prize draw at Round 5. All drivers who have entered at least 4 rounds will be eligible and the suit will be delivered in time for the 2018 season. Of course if you want to buy a customised suit now they are offering a special deal for NKC drivers.
As always, we welcome your comments/questions/feedback so feel free to get in touch. Otherwise, please get those tyre orders in as soon as you can and look out for further updates from us.
