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 ever since.

Fun night racing karts at K1 Speed. Over 50 women ditching their high heels, pulling back their hair and letting loose their competitive side. Then spending time up in the bar and laughing at their terrible lap times. After spending all day at a trade...More

Front desk not helpful and did not set the right expectations for a new customer. Took 1.5 before first race. Josh the manager was not apologetic. Poor services.

My son and I visited yesterday and had a great time. We bought the 3 race package and it took us a couple of hours to use. Fun activity for both of us. The price of the package is in line with similar activities.

Fun for sure, great time for teenagers, especially around 14 or 15 who have the itch to drive. Big place, two different tracks. They have nice safety gear, and explain everything, indoors, also have nice lounge area.
