K1 Speed Opens Newest Center in Georgia State Capital
05 December 2014
K1 Speed’s newest indoor go-kart track in Atlanta, Georgia lets men, women and children race high-performance electric karts without a reservation.
Irvine, CA Friday, December 5, 2014 – With more than 20 centers throughout the country, from Hawaii to Florida, K1 Speed is the nation’s largest indoor karting company. Each K1 Speed location is renowned for providing people the opportunity to experience the thrill of wheel-to-wheel racing in a safe and controlled environment. In hopes of further expanding access to the sport of indoor go-kart racing, the company has opened its newest center in Duluth, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta, the ninth largest metropolitan area in America.
K1 Speed Atlanta will introduce the sport of indoor karting to the area’s more than 5 million residents. As with every K1 Speed center, the Atlanta track will feature Arrive & Drive racing, which allows individuals to walk in any day of the week, any time of day, without a reservation, and race with friends, family and other competitors in 14-lap heats. As is the case with every K1 Speed location, all that is required is meeting the applicable height requirement and a pair of closed-toe shoes – everything else, from full-face helmets to pre-race instruction, is provided.
What makes it possible for K1 Speed to offer go-kart racing day and night, all year long, regardless of the weather, is the fact that each of its centers is entirely indoors. By enclosing the track in a climate-controlled facility, racing can take place rain or shine. In Atlanta, a city known for humid and rainy summers and unseasonably cold winters, K1 Speed’s indoor center will let competitors satiate their need for speed 364 days a year.
The company further distinguishes itself from traditional karting centers with its karts. Utilizing high-performance, zero-emission, all-electric go-karts that are capable of speeds approaching 45mph, K1 Speed’s karts are high-performance machines that share little with the lawn mower-powered karts of yore. These karts also make it possible to maintain a safe and controlled racing environment, as they can be electronically governed or shut down in the case of an on-track incident. With acceleration that pushes you back in your seat and zero emissions, they have revolutionized karting in America.
In addition to public racing, K1 Speed Atlanta also offers a number of private race packages which can be reserved for birthday parties, bachelor and bachelorette parties, corporate events, team building exercises, company holiday parties, and other special occasions. Private meeting rooms are also available, and catering can be arranged with a number of local businesses.
K1 Speed Atlanta, which features a museum-quality collection of authentic racing memorabilia and a Pit Cafe snack bar in addition to its professionally designed indoor go-kart track, is now open. The facility is within close driving distance of the Atlanta area, located roughly 25 miles outside of the city center, in Duluth, Georgia. The facility is open to the public and private reservations can be made via phone or the company’s website, at www.k1speed.com.
