Known for cultivating some of the top karting talent around, Oakland Valley Race Park (OVRP) and the NEKC series announce today several special programs aimed at Rotax racers in the Northeast region. Through associations with the MAXSpeed Group and the Diversified Private Wealth Advisors Driver Promotion program, in honor of the late Peter Hannen, Rotaxians will benefit from engine programs and Sofina Foods US Open Presented by Fikse Wheels series finale entries.

Honoring the late Peter Hannen, a beloved fixture at OVRP and in the Northeast karting region, the Diversified Private Wealth Advisors Driver Promotion program will award Sofina Foods US Open of Las Vegas entries to NEKC champions in Rotax Micro MAX, Mini MAX, Junior MAX, Senior MAX, and Masters MAX. With the entries awarded in Hannen’s name, who was known to say, “get your helmet on and drive,” top drivers from the area will get to do just that and showcase their talents in Las Vegas this November. The free entry package will include race tires, fuel, oil and entry fee, with winners required to be a Rotax MAX Challenge (RMC) member as well as an active OVRP/NEKC member.

Additionally, OVRP/NEKC members will also be offered Rotax 125 MAX evo engine upgrade kits at a special fixed price. Drivers must be RMC members and who commit to one round of the NEKC series will be eligible to purchase one upgrade kit per customer, directly through MAXSpeed Group, for $750.00, not including pipe.

OVRP/NEKC members in the Rotax Micro and Mini MAX classes will also be able to purchase new engine packages at greatly reduced prices. Complete engines packages will be offered at $1995.00 for Micro and at $2495.00 for Mini. Additional details on both the evo upgrade pricing and reduced Micro and Mini engines are available through MAXSpeed’s network of Northeast based dealers and authorized service centers. With Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals tickets now offered in these two classes, now is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of these special offers.
