K1 Speed, the largest operator of public indoor karting centers in the country, is opening its newest location in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, in Arlington.
Irvine, CA October, 1, 2013 – The newest karting track in Arlington (located roughly equidistant between Dallas and Forth Worth) is not your ordinary go-kart track. Perhaps most strikingly, it’s located entirely inside, allowing for racing rain or shine, day or night. It also features a professionally-designed course layout and high-performance electric karts. Needless to say, though everything may appear similar on a superficial level, the track represents a new approach to go-karting. Take everything that you think you know about go-kart racing and throw it out the window because K1 Speed is committed to changing your perception.
Indoor Go-kart Racing – The K1 Speed Way
Since its founding in 2003, K1 Speed has revolutionized what individuals expect out of a go-karting experience. Gone are the anemic, heavy, slow-witted gas-powered karts of your youth; in their place are high-performance, zero-emission, environmentally friendly electric karts that are cleaner, quieter, and perhaps most importantly, faster. The poorly maintained tracks and outdoor seating areas have been replaced with spacious lounges, leather couches, plasma screen televisions, snack bars, and museum-quality collections of authentic racing memorabilia. The very traits that K1 Speed has built its reputation on, and that have allowed it to grow into the largest karting company in the country – all-electric go-karts, professionally designed race tracks, year-round racing, and an unparalleled attention to detail – are all present in the company’s newest location, K1 Speed Dallas.
Residents of Dallas, Forth Worth, and Arlington can visit K1 Speed seven days a week and experience the thrill of indoor go-kart racing for themselves, no reservations required. With the latest state-of-the-art, all-electric karts (designed and built in Europe), K1 Speed is able to satisfy the demands and needs of even the most ardent driving enthusiasts. The company promises an adrenaline-pumping experience that is second to none; yet, due to their tractable nature, the company’s electric karts are easy to drive and suitable for racers of all skill levels and experience. Racers who want to experience the thrill of wheel-to-wheel racing need only show up – K1 Speed handles the rest!
Catering to Racers’ Every Need – Planning Private Parties and More
In addition to offering public races in the form of their Arrive & Drive racing option, K1 Speed Dallas can also accommodate private events. The company has a number of private racing packages that are designed for groups of 8 or more people, making them perfect for birthday parties, bachelor and bachelorette parties, team building exercises, company functions, and more. And to ensure that large groups are properly provided for, K1 Speed Dallas also has a number of private room rentals available, as well as catering options. There is an option designed to meet every need, all of which are centered around the company’s most unique and lasting product: high-performance indoor go-kart racing.
K1 Speed Dallas is conveniently located in Arlington, roughly equal distance from Fort Worth and Dallas, and is situated across from Six Flags Over Texas. Residents of Arlington, West Prairie, Dallas, Forth Worth and surrounding communities can contact K1 Speed Dallas with any questions. Individuals looking to experience indoor karting are also encouraged to show up for an Arrive & Drive race at any time.
