Liquidator Jeff Shwarz will be flming the auction of the F440 Racing go-cart track for his show on OLN.

Auction to be showcased in television show

Auction of go-karts and gear will be videotaped for episode of The Liquidator

Eighteen years of fast driving will go on sale this Saturday in South Surrey when the  assets of the shuttered F440 Racing Challenge go-cart track in Tsawwassen are auctioned off.

The event will be recorded for an episode of the OLN television series, “The Liquidator,” that stars Burnaby-based Direct Liquidation owner Jeff Schwarz.

Items on the block include go-karts, club karts, Honda engines, racing suits, helmets, gloves and other racing accessories.

In addition, woodworking machines and equipment from the local Teak Marine Wood Shop will also be auctioned.

The one-kilometre, 17-turn go-cart track began operating in 1994 on leased First Nations land.

It closed in September to make way for a residential development that broke ground May 24.

The track lease was set to expire in 2019, but the company developing the 800-home Tsawwassen Shores project bought out the remainder of the track lease for the land last August.

The nearby water slide park will remain open.

The auction of the track assets will take place at 101-19052 26 Ave. beginning at 9 a.m. with a preview of sale items.

Season two of The Liquidator premieres Thursday (Nov. 8) and airs weekly at 9 p.m. PT/ET on OLN.

The 13-part, 30-minute lifestyle documentary series follows Schwarz, haggler, trader and owner of one of Western Canada’s largest liquidation houses.
