Ocala Gran Prix Adds IAME and MG Racing Tires Product Lines
Major facility in sunshine state providing sales and support for engine and tire brands
Ocala Gran Prix is proud to announce a new partnership with IAME engines and MG Racing Tires. The central Florida facility and kart shop is a vital part to the growth and expansion of karting, and has been a major developer of today’s top drivers in North America. OGP has become a very respected name in the karting industry for what they do on and off the race track. The 6/10-mile OGP circuit is among the top facilities in the state of Florida, hosting major events annually in addition to regional and local events throughout the calendar year.
Ocala Gran Prix will have IAME parts, including the IAME X30 and Swift engines ready for purchase beginning October 1, along with the five compounds available from MG Racing Tires. OGP is in the process of ramping up inventory to be able to offer the full range of IAME engines and parts to support all IAME racers. In addition, Ocala Gran Prix will be involved in helping to introduce new products to the Florida karting market in the coming months.
“I believe that the IAME and MG Racing Tires is an excellent addition to Ocala Gran Prix product line,” stated Jorge Arellano – President of Ocala Gran Prix. “In the last couple of years, I have been watching the IAME and MG brands grow throughout the United States. I also have been interested in IAME working to enter the market of Florida. I believe with the full support of OGP, we will be able to help grow the Southeast market for the IAME brand. I look forward to the new challenges and the new relationships we will be developing around the area.”
IAME and MG Racing Tires racers throughout the Southeast will have the opportunity to race at one of the country’s most popular venues – Ocala Gran Prix. Its highly successful club series is the largest in the state of Florida, hosting events year-round for all age categories and driver experience from beginners to national-level competitors. Talks are already in place for a regional program, stretching from Ocala to the GoPro Motorplex in North Carolina.
“I’m looking forward to the relationship with IAME,” added Ocala Gran Prix Vice President Troy Mitchell. “We at Ocala Gran Prix are about to build a whole new group of racers involved in the IAME brand and help build support for the engine products in the southern part of the United States. We have also worked with the MG brand in the past and look forward to providing it to our local racers full-time.”
More detailed information will be released in the coming weeks regarding the integration of IAME engines and MG Racing Tires into the Ocala Gran Prix racing series, along with planned events for the official OGP Race Team and support trailer.
