Concord is Now the Newest Home of K1 Speed
North Carolina joins Georgia and Florida to become the third Southern state with a K1 Speed center.
Irvine, CA – June 18, 2016 – With its newest location now open in Concord, North Carolina, K1 Speed has expanded its reach in the American South to become the preeminent karting company in the region. With centers in Atlanta, Georgia, as well as Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, and Orlando, Florida, K1 Speed has made the sport of indoor go-kart racing accessible to millions throughout the area. With K1 Speed Concord, that reach is broadened even further. The new Concord center will be the company’s first in North Carolina, and may pave the way for additional centers in both North and South Carolina in the near future.
As with every K1 Speed facility, the new Concord center makes the sport of indoor go-kart racing (or indoor karting, as it’s often called) accessible to the public. Furthermore, the new facility is safe and thoroughly modern. Highly advanced, energy-absorbing barriers line the track to protect racers in the event of collisions, fully electric karts can be remotely disabled to bring racers to a complete stop, and full-face helmets and instruction are provided to every driver. All that’s required to race is closed-toe shoes. Racers must also meet some basic safety pre-requisites. K1 Speed prides itself on making its racing accessible and available to all, and both children and adults are invited to participate.
With fully electric karts, two indoor kart tracks, and spacious lounges featuring leather couches and authentic racing memorabilia, K1 Speed Concord is not a typical go-kart track. Since its founding in 2003, the company has strived to reimagine what the karting experience can and should be. At K1 Speed Concord, racers will find no picnic tables or old, used tires lining the track. The parking lot is not an abandoned dirt lot, and the karts themselves are not the anemic, lawn mower-powered devices that individuals might be expecting. Quite the opposite, in fact; K1 Speed’s all-electric go-karts are high-performance machines capable of speeds approaching 45mph. K1 Speed aims to be different.
When not competing head-to-head on-track with up to 11 other people, racers can take advantage of K1 Speed Concord’s private meeting rooms, or enjoy a beverage at its Pit Cafe snack bar. K1 Speed is also a popular venue for team building exercises, corporate events, private parties (including birthday and bachelor parties), and even product launches. Residents of Concord who are interested in reserving a private meeting room or scheduling a race package can contact K1 Speed for further details. However, no reservation is required to race at K1 Speed. The company’s popular Arrive & Drive package allows anyone to come in, without a reservation, and participate in spirited races against the clock.
