Straw­berry Racing is­sues statement on en­gine seals for OK units

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Straw­berry Racing has is­sued a statement clar­i­fy­ing a num­ber of points re­gard­ing the Vo­tex OK engines used in the re­vived MSA Bri­tish Se­nior and Ju­nior Cham­pi­onships.

Straw­berry – the of­fi­cial OTK UK im­porter – has said that all engines are pro­vided di­rect from the fac­tory and have three seals so it is easy to see if they have been tam­pered with. Once pur­chased, the en­gine does not have to be main­tained by Straw­berry Racing.

Straw­berry’s Warwick Ring­ham said: “All we, and the OTK Kart Group, are try­ing to do is give ev­ery­one the chance to race in what, from 2016 for­ward, will be the pin­na­cle of world kart­ing.

“The OTK Kart Group has in­vested heav­ily in this class, in terms of time and money in de­vel­op­ing this new generation of CIK engines and wants to see it grow and carry on for years to come. They and Straw­berry Racing un­der­stand that some peo­ple do have a few con­cerns and is­sues. That is why we have moved quickly to an­swer any ques­tions and of­fer com­plete open­ness.”
