The nation’s largest indoor karting chain has opened its newest racing center and entertainment complex in America’s “Second City,” Chicago.

The thrill of all-electric indoor go-kart racing has come to Chicago. The nation’s largest indoor karting company, K1 Speed, has opened its doors in America’s “Second City” and with it, introducing its trademark style of racing to a whole new group of enthusiasts. As one of the most populous cities in America, and one that is subject to sever weather for months at a time, Chicago is a natural fit for the sport of indoor go-kart racing. It is currently both underserved and an ideal location for indoor kart racing.

Unlike outdoor karting tracks, which are subject to weather, K1 Speed’s racing centers are open every day of the year. Rain or shine, scorching heat or blistering cold, people can get away from it all and satiate their need for speed at K1 Speed’s newest track. This unique approach to year-round racing has allowed K1 Speed to bring the sport of kart racing to the masses. And yet, thanks to the company’s dedication to providing a genuine racing experience, it is still able to deliver a racing environment that will please even ardent enthusiast.

The K1 Speed Experience
K1 Speed has been at the forefront of the indoor karting industry since first opening its doors in the town of Carlsbad – near San Diego, California – in 2003. The company rethought karting as a sport and as a recreational activity, seeking to provide solutions to the two biggest problems typical of traditional karting venues; the karts and the track. The solutions as K1 Speed saw it were simple: rethink the karts and rethink the tracks.

The most defining aspect of K1 Speed, and perhaps the one aspect that has allowed it to become the largest karting chain in the country, is its high-performance, all-electric, zero-emission go-karts. These machines are capable of speeds approaching 45mph on the company’s indoor tracks, and can accelerate to top speed almost instantly thanks to their torque-rich electric motors; all without noxious gas fumes or loud engines. Individuals accustomed to driving a 6.5-hp, lawn mower-powered go-kart are sure to be impressed with these 20-hp, electrically driven machines. Put simply, the difference is night and day.

Racing at K1 Speed Chicago
Though K1 Speed Chicago will be situated near Buffalo Grove and Addison, residents from throughout the area will be able to enjoy the thrill of wheel-to-wheel racing, thanks to K1 Speed’s popular Arrive & Drive race format.

One only needs to be able to safely operate the kart’s pedals and steering wheels and meet the height requirements. With the Arrive & Drive race format, up to 12 racers at a time will hit the track in a 14-lap race against the clock. While sharing the track, racers will have to vie with each other to set the fastest lap time, as the fastest lap will determine the winner!
