OTK and Vortex Slash Prices in United States Karting Market

Published: Thursday, June 1st, 2017

Taking effect June 1, 2017, OTK USA and Vortex ROK will look to revitalize the United States karting scene and build the industry back to where it once was. With a reduction in retail prices for OTK and Vortex ROK related products, the United States pricing structure will be aggressive but is a long time coming. While this is large piece of the karting puzzle, it is only the start of what OTK, Vortex, and ROK CUP Promotions have planned to bring our beloved sport back to where it once was.

“Vortex ROK will be slashing prices on all engine related parts,” exclaimed Garett Potter, Director of Operations for ROK Cup Promotions. “After many years of the exchange rate putting the squeeze on the United States kart racing community, we are very happy to announce a price reduction on all Vortex ROK engine parts.”

With the current economy and USD to Euro exchange rate, OTK and Vortex dealers have been asking for a change to help make pricing structures on par with the world karting market. With the retail price reduction, the goal will be to help open doors for racers and teams in not only the US market but also for racers from around the world that come to the United States to race.

“It has been a long time since the US karting industry has had some very positive news and we hope this will be just the start of turning the declining karting trend around,” explained OTK USA’s Luis Ruibal. “While maintaining the highest quality of all OTK products, we feel it’s the right time to adjust pricing for the US market; globalization, steady exchange rate and strong economy makes this change necessary.”

The OTK line of karts are the hottest chassis on the market and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. The price reduction will also be extended to all OTK parts offered by the OTK Kart Group.
