OTK USA & ROK Cup USA Announce Split from Full Throttle Karting &
Challenge of the Americas
Las Vegas, NV October 30, 2023 –OTK USA and ROK Cup USA are announcing a split from Full Throttle Karting and the Challenge of the America’s series effective immediately. Both entities would like to thank Andy Seesemann, owner of FTK and Challenge Karting, for his past dedication to the Vortex engines & ROK Cup platforms and supporting Vortex engine customers in the western US. FTK will remain a Vortex dealer.
“I’ve known Andy a long time and have the utmost respect for him and his racing programs. I truly hate to see this, but what is best for Challenge Karting and what is best for OTK/ROK are not currently aligning. Therefore, it is probably best we both move on for the time being,” stated Michael Burrell, ROK Cup USA Director. “ROK Cup USA is looking forward to expanding our role in the west and spending more time with our Rokkers in the west next season at ROK Sonoma & beyond!”
OTK USA & ROK Cup USA want to thank the Seesemann family and FTK & Challenge Karting staffs for their years of service to the Vortex and LeVanto brands. ROK Cup USA and Vortex remain committed to our programs in the western US and serving all ROK/Vortex racers. More details regarding Vortex engines & parts and LeVanto tire distribution in the western US will be forthcoming.
ROK Cup USA promotes events across the United States including the original Florida Winter Tour and ROK Vegas at the Rio. ROK Cup USA events feature Vortex 2-cycle karting engines ranging in size from 60cc to 125cc 6-speed shifter karts and drivers aged 7 and up.
