One of the longest running winter trade show and swap meets sponsored by the Mid-State Kart Club (MSKC) of Springfield, IL MSKC officials have decided to have the show for the second year in the 39,000 square feet Orr Building at the Illinois State Fairgrounds on SATURDAY January 26th (Vendor Only) and SUNDAY January 27th 2013 (Vendor and SWAP). This show will potentially be one of the largest sprint kart oriented trade shows in the United States. Last year’s show had new sprint karts on display from manufacturers such as Margay, Merlin, Corsa, Arrow, Birel, Monza, Tony Kart, Kart Mini, PCR Alonzo and Kosmic. With the new venue, there will be room for many more vendors and swap booths.
Proceeds from the show will benefit the Mid-State Kart Club and allow them to make track repairs and upgrades to the club owned facility, Mid-State Raceway.
The Illinois State Fairgrounds located in Springfield, Illinois is easy to access off of Interstate-55 and the Orr Building has a large loading door that was not available at the previous location. The vendor area for new equipment will be located in a separate area from the swap booths. The swap booths will be available for $40 for a 10’ by 10’ booth. The show will also offer a seminar area for vendors or organizations to discuss their products and services.
