Motorbase Driver Academy racer Alfie Garford delivered a spectacular weekend of success at Kimbolton in Cambridgeshire over the weekend, 13th/14th August, to win the coveted 2022 TKM Festival title.
The top karters from across the UK gathered for the biggest one-off TKM race of the year and Garford delivered the crown in style, a fabulous victory in the Final as well as the fastest lap to boot.
Qualifying fourth and then finishing Heat One in second position, he was second again in Heat Two and then took third place in the last of the Heats. Starting the Pre-Final second on the grid, Garford finished the penultimate race second after a photo-finish, missing the win by just 0.01 seconds.
Again lining-up second for the Final, Garford ran a comfortable second for the first half of the race and with five laps to go he made his move for the lead. Over the final three laps, the lead train of six karts battled fiercely but Garford was able to repel all challengers and took a memorable and thoroughly deserved win.
Massive congratulations Alfie from everyone at Motorbase!
