Strawberry Racing issues statement on engine seals for OK units
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.”
