Overview
More
The premise behind the creation of K1 Speed was to offer enthusiasts and amateurs alike an authentic and genuine racing experience in a safe, comfortable, accessible and perhaps most importantly, unique environment. Utilizing advanced European electric karts and indoor asphalt tracks, K1 Speed quickly developed a reputation as being fun and exciting, and our growth has been continuous since we first opened our doors. In addition to our Arrive and Drive racing option, which allows individuals to visit our indoor karting centers anytime and experience the thrill of racing, we also offer racing leagues and a variety of packages for corporate events and group parties, which have proven quite popular. To meet the needs of customers and kart racing enthusiasts who demand more, we also have a Pro Shop - K1 Race Gear - which carries everything that a karter might need to compete at the track. At K1 Speed, our goal is to be synonymous with karting, and we think that we are on our way!

This truly was an unexpected joy! As full grown adults, we wondered if we surpassed the age where go karts would still provide the fun it once had when we were younger. The short answer is yes, it absolutely will thrill you, if not more....More

A local friend took me there for the first time. Not my first indoor track, but K-1. Layout was good, karts were fast enough for the audience. Run groups were mixed which meant a lot of slower drivers, most of whom were respectful. While not...More

Have been there twice , both for parties. It is so much fun and very exciting. My only complaint is that the wait if extremely long, and they do not take reservations. Only reservations for large parties.
