Ronco Scrivia/Coueron, 18th December 2020
OMP Racing and Sodikart have undersigned today a partnership agreement that will bind the first kart manufacturer in the world to the global leader in the field of motorsport safety devices.
Specifically, the agreement states that all the racewear of the Sodi Official Racing Team will be supplied by OMP. Gloves, boots, underwear, rib protectors and suits will be manufactured by the Italian company, the latter with the exclusive Sodi design.
They are all high end products, the same which in the past seasons have literally set a revolution in the concept of safety and comfort applied to karting. Moreover, the KS-1 PRO rib protector is an absolute novelty: the device will be mandatory in all international races starting from the 2021 season, and the one from OMP was the first to get the FIA homologation.
Paolo Delprato, OMP President and CEO: “OMP’s commitment in the world of karting is steady, as evidenced by the many investments in R&D in this field; those investment then translate into continuous innovation and improvement. Becoming partners of Sodikart, we join a global level manufacturer, with a spirit of cooperation which I’m sure will bring mutual successes”.
Bertrand Pignolet, SODIKART Chairman: “All the Sodi Official Racing Team, as well as the whole Sodikart company is happy to start this new partnership with a global player in our specific market. We are looking forward to starting this new era for this next season, with a lot of success for both companies.”
The first official Sodi suits by OMP are already on sale on ITAKAshop website.
