The Ohio Valley Karting Association Swap Meet is possibly the largest one day karting event in the Eastern half of the US. There will be 250 tables of kart racing everything! Used parts, used karts, new parts and new karts will be there as well as new accessories. On February the 4th the OVKA is having their 31st annual swap meet in Wilmington, Ohio at the Roberts Centre.
The Roberts Centre includes a 60,000 sq ft exposition center, a Holiday Inn, and a Max and Erma’s sports bar. It is 30 seconds from Interstate 71, half-way between Cincinnati and Columbus, as well as only a little over two hours from Indianapolis. The swap meet has become a karting event that has the energy of a fast moving swap meet with the advantages of a trade show. The vendor list includes many manufactures, aftermarket accessory companies service suppliers, and many individuals all selling. To name a few this year, Briggs & Stratton Racing will be there as well as Burris, KartLift, USPKS, Target Distributing, WKA, and many, many more. The cost to be a vendor is 60 dollars and last year we had over 2100 in attendance.
The show is aimed at all types of kart racers. Road course, oval, pavement, and dirt. It has become a social event and growing every year. This year is the first at the Roberts Centre and a huge step up for our club as the Roberts Center is a first rate venue! Come check it out and see for yourself.
