Formula TKM 2-stroke classes will continue with unchanged chassis regulations for 2013 with Tal-Ko Racing scrapping provisional plans to introduce castor/camber and torsion bar adjustments.
The change of heart comes just two weeks after Tal-Ko, as class organisers, made public a possible switch to upgrading the karts for the new season.
Explains Tal-Ko boss Alan Turney: “We considered this potential change after suggestions from some drivers and teams. However once we spread the word there has been a very strong feedback against the plan and we have therefore dropped any changes.
“We have always aimed to give our competitors what they want in racing and it is very clear from the response that they do not want the added complication of setting complex geometry changes. There is also a cost factor.
“Our decision will upset some who thought it was a great idea but the vast majority were against and we are very happy to go with the democratic vote. TKM has always concentrated at giving minimum hassle cost effective racing and that’s how we will continue.”
TKM will be proceeding with plans for Clubman and Masters sub classes within the Extremecategory becoming more and more popular at club and other major events such as the TKM Festival.
