Who sells TonyKarts in Northern IL or Southern WI?

Who sells TonyKarts in Northern IL or Southern WI ? The only kart shops I know about are Franklin Kart in the Milwaukee area and Viking in the Chicago area. Neither of them sell TonyKart / OTK karts.

What about Birel or CRG shops in the same area? I couldn’t find any. The closest place I could find is Comet, and that is hundreds of miles away.

I have owned a Birel and a CRG in past, and was happy with both of them. It just seems like OTK has become way more popular in recent years. I’ve been out of karting for a while. Trying to get involved again and need to buy a new kart.

Have you spoken to Franklin? They are OTK dealers and half the team is on OTK stuff.

Oh I didn’t know. When I looked at their website all they had listed were Merlin karts?

I will check them out. Thanks :slightly_smiling_face:

Jim is still beating Junior and Senior fields in front straightaway footraces.


CKT and AEM are both dealers in the Chicagoland area.

Thanks I had never even heard of AEM before. I will check them out. :slightly_smiling_face:

I highly recommend Franklin. They carry OTK karts, and have really good support. Only reason I switched off is moving away from the area, if I was in Wisconsin I would still be racing with his shop.
