iame IAME USA (East and West) have collaborated with IAME S.P.A., MG Tires, and related parties to bring stability to the North American karting marketplace.

“It’s no secret,” remarked Eric Jones of IAME USA East. “Many karting engine manufacturers and race promotion entities have either closed up shop or created an unsustainable business model. Our goal was to address this head on, in every way imaginable. Economics aside, the IAME platform also represents a truly universal competition medium. There are literally dozens of clubs, series, and championships a customer can race using the very same product.”

Throughout the last couple weeks, principles of IAME USA, IAME SPA, MG Tires Brazil, and other key constituents have convened to outline a concrete structure in the North American continent. One that is stable, secure, and most of all economically sound.

“We’re excited to introduce a viable trade in program for every karter in America,” remarked IAME USA West Principal Tom Kutscher. “We believe heavily in the IAME product and we know it will succeed in serving the North American karting consumer for decades to come.”
