K1 Speed Partners With Go Puck Tesla Model S Competing In Pikes Peak International Hill Climb
(Irvine, CA) June 16, 2016 – One wearable device to charge all your other devices, GO PUCK, the World’s 1st Wearable Power of Mobile Devices partners with K1 Speed, America’s Premier Indoor Kart Racing Company. Founder and CEO, Blake Fuller, will be piloting the modified Tesla Model S in the 100th Anniversary of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
It’s only fitting to pin these two giants together for this momentous event. With fully electric, high-performance go-karts and 30 entertainment venues nationwide including an international location, K1 Speed is the leader in the industry. GO PUCK manufactures wearable, compact and durable power for all mobile devices. Designed by the award-winning lithium ion battery engineer who created battery that powers F1, NASCAR and IndyCar, GO PUCK is literally racing technology in the palm of your hand.
“To partner with K1 Speed is such an honor and speaks to the commitment of K1 Speed to not only be a premium family entertainment venue, but also a logical first choice for anyone with dreams of becoming a race car driver!” say Fuller. He continues: “Truth be told, prior to winning Pikes Peak Hill Climb rookie of the year in 1999 at the age of 17, I had spent more time in a Go Kart at venues like K1 Speed than in actual race cars! Now, I’m stoked to see how the GO PUCK Tesla Racing Program can help raise awareness that racing at K1 Speed can lead to the developments of future drivers in electric racing programs like PPIHC or Formula E.”
“When you think electric cars you immediately think of Tesla. The same goes for electric go-karts and K1 Speed. When we heard about Blake’s PPIHC efforts, we immediately contacted GO PUCK to get involved. We were introduced to Blake and GO PUCK a few years back at X Games Austin during the Bucky & Friends Endurance Race. It was only a matter of time for both brands to connect on this electrifying project. We’re thrilled to be a part of this and look forward to Blake challenging the current electric-vehicle record in his custom K1 RaceGear suit,” says Marketing Manager, Andrew Palos.
With Pikes Peak just a week away, look for pre and post events with the Tesla Model S at K1 Speed Denver (Littleton, CO). The Denver center will also be hosting a GO KART.

I first found K1 Speed on a trip to Salt Lake, had an Awesome time ! Any plans to start one here in Albuquerque ? And are franchise opportunities available ?
Great to hear you raced with us in Sandy, UT. Every city is a potential site, you’ll see an announcement here on k1speed.com if we do come to New Mexico. The only franchise opportunities are for outside of the U.S.
