Irvine, California (June 1, 2012) – With a dozen indoor karting centers currently in operation or under construction throughout the United States, K1 Speed is the largest indoor go-kart racing company in the country. With the opening of its newest center in Houston, Texas, the company is introducing the thrill and excitement of karting to a whole new audience. Founded in 2003, the company has built a reputation for thrills and excitement, and its newest center is sure to continue this tradition.
Indoor Karting – The K1 Speed Difference
K1 Speed represents a revolution in karting. Unlike the outdoor tracks that most people are accustomed to, K1 Speed’s tracks are professionally designed and indoors, allowing for racing every day of the year in any weather. Rain or shine, during hot weather or cold, novice and veteran racing enthusiasts can experience the thrill of wheel-to-wheel racing at K1 Speed in comfort and safety.
The other distinguishing feature of K1 Speed is its karts. Most outdoor kart tracks have anemic, poorly maintained, gas-powered karts that are loud, noxious, and lethargic. K1 Speed utilizes zero-emission, all-electric European karts that can reach speeds approaching 45mph. With chassis designs mirroring those of world champion racing karts, these machines have superb handling, braking, and response. They can push you back in your seat under acceleration and the experience of racing them around the challenging tracks is a genuine thrill!
Racing Packages – Public and Private Racing Available
K1 Speed is open to the public 365 days a year. Houston residents will be able to satiate their adrenaline needs without a reservation or appointment by taking advantage of our Arrive & Drive race program. A 14-lap race against the clock with up to 11 other people, Arrive & Drive races are the most popular option, as they are affordable and accessible for racers of all skill levels.
If racing with a party of 8 or more people, you may be interested in taking advantage of the racing packages. With a variety of packages to choose from, including the popular Grand Prix challenge and the Le Mans Endurance event, you’re sure to find a package that suits your needs. These race packages, which feature qualifying sessions, wheel-to-wheel racing, and podium ceremonies for the winners, are perfect for birthday parties, bachelor parties, team building exercises, and corporate events.
Indoor Karting Centers
K1 Speed aims to create world-class entertainment venues, not simply indoor go kart tracks. The centers feature museum-quality collections of racing memorabilia, artwork, and real racecars, and the lounges are adorned with plasma screen televisions, leather couches, and a Pit Café snack bar. We want you to have as much fun off of the track as you do on the track. So come in and enjoy K1 Speed’s newest center, opening in the heart of Houston!
