“We both aim to absolute quality”
The 2021 karting season is starting with the renewal of the partnership between two leading companies in the karting world: OTK Kart Group and OMP Racing.
The cooperation between the two companies started in 2015 and has been very satisfying so far: the decision to continue the partnership was thus taken very naturally.
In accordance with the agreement, OMP Racing will keep on supplying all the technical clothing (suits, gloves, underwear, boots) to all OTK brands and racing teams.
Throughout the upcoming seasons all the drivers of the OTK racing teams will wear the products from OMP’s top karting range, all customized with a special graphic design for each brand.
Tony Kart, Kosmic Kart, Exprit Kart, Redspeed Kart and EOS Kart are the brands that belong to OTK Kart Group.
The main innovation of this renewal, however, is the introduction of Bell helmets in the deal. Kosmic and Exprit drivers will use the carbon karting helmets of the prestigious group, which was acquired by OMP last year.
Not only: OMP will give its contribution to OTK’s rental karts equipment. OTK and OMP technicians are studying innovative solutions for this segment.
Paolo Delprato, OMP Racing managing director: “Five years ago, as we signed the first agreement with OTK, we kick-started a great time, five years during which OMP products have conquered the karting global market and got improved also through the continuous synergy with our partner. The goal is now to grow further, and mutually contribute to our successes”.
Roberto Robazzi, president of OTK Group: “I’m very happy to announce the renewal of this partnership with OMP. After all, our corporate philosophies have always been in harmony: we both aim to absolute quality through the obsessive attention to details, and we both pursue a constant research and development work. That’s why this renewal has come in such a natural manner. More and more years for our drivers, thus, with OMP”.
