K1 Speed Phoenix is Relocating This June!

Phoenix, racers! Get ready for a change this June, as K1 Speed Phoenix will be moving to a new home!

 

Don’t worry – the new location will be less than a mile from our existing location so we’re not moving far. And here’s the best part – this move will allow us to give you even more attractions including TWO tracks, over 25 games and more! Read on to learn about this exciting change!

Old K1 Speed Phoenix vs New K1 Speed Phoenix

There’s several big changes in store for K1 Speed Phoenix with the move to a larger facility. Here’s a sample of what we’ll be able to offer over what’s currently available.

From a Single-Track Center to a Two-Track Center!

Soon, racers at K1 Speed Phoenix will have not just one track to race on, but two different tracks! This is exciting for at least a couple of reasons.

First, having two tracks will give our regulars a little variety instead of racing the same track over and over again.

Secondly, having two tracks means we run twice the amount of racers at the same time! This should translate to shorter wait times for you when you visit.

All-New Superleggero Go Karts!

The new K1 Speed Phoenix not only has two new tracks, but will also have the very latest K1 Speed go kart – the Superleggero!

 

This all-new kart features paddle shifters, a modern interpretation of a formula racing-style steering wheel, an dash-mounted digital display, central headlight, and more! And given its name (superleggero translates to “super light” in Italian), the kart is 20 pounds lighter than our previous generation kart. It may not sound much on paper, but trust us, you’ll feel the difference behind the wheel. Of course, we aren’t sacrificing speed with the new kart, so rest assured, adults and teens who are 58″ or taller can still enjoy speeds of up to 45mph in the Superleggero.

From a Small Arcade to the Largest Arcade of Any K1 Speed!

Currently, K1 Speed Phoenix offers a selection of video games for you to play in between your races. But that’s going to expand significantly when we move locations. Once we move, you’ll be able to play on over 25 games in our arcade which will be the largest arcade of any K1 Speed location!

Two Event Rooms Vs One Event Room & Mezzanine

People love using our place as their event venue in Phoenix, but we’ve only had one dedicated private event room in addition to our mezzanine space. But when we move, we’ll have TWO private event rooms for birthday parties, bachelor parties, company parties, and other group events!

  • Don Myers

    Ok. I give. Where’s the new location???

    • Staff Writer

      Hey Don, it’s less than a mile away from its current location.. the exact location will be officially revealed later!

  • Amy Imbrescia

    New karts too? Will you be auctioning off the old ones?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello Amy! We’re most likely using the same karts. Thanks for your interest!

  • Chris Marley

    When is the last day we can race at your Phoenix location? We were hoping to visit in mid March.

    • Staff Writer

      Hi Chris, we don’t have a specific date at the moment. However, when the relocation does occur, we’re going to try to do it without losing many days at all – if any. If I find out the specific dates, I’ll re-respond to your comment and let you know.

  • Ron Kujawa

    Hey guys, any update on this? Lots of us are anxious to hit the new tracks!

    • Staff Writer

      Hey, Ron! We’re seriously excited for this too! Sorry there hasn’t been an update, but stay tuned for one soon. Rest assured, we’re busy at work on it!

  • Kruger Lucas

    Is it open yet

    • Staff Writer

      We’re getting closer, Kruger!

  • Ron Kujawa

    April’s GP Challenge at existing location?

  • AJ

    Is the new location open or is Jr. league at the old location tonight 4/5?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello AJ! April 5th’s Junior League is at the old location tonight. We’re close to relocating, but haven’t made the move yet.

  • AP

    As of April 5th, still a couple weeks out. Got word tonight that we will have the new carts and not be reusing the old ones!

  • Anthony N

    so how will the challenge GP work at the new location will it be solely dedicated to one track or will it switch between track every session? and any clue when the new location may open?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello, Anthony! We’re working hard to make that transfer happen soon. We should be moved by the end of the month. We’ll likely dedicate one track for the Challenge GP. That’s what we do at our other 2-track locations. We can’t wait to show you the new place soon!

  • Kendra

    What day do you plan on opening? Hoping to take my 13 year old son for his birthday with friends! We were planning on 4/23 but see you are temporarily closed! When can we plan our visit?!?!!

    • Staff Writer

      Hello Kendra! We’re trying our hardest to open ASAP. There is a chance we’ll be open by then, but keep checking our website. Once we open, we’ll have it posted here. Hopefully we’ll see you all very soon!

  • Gavyn

    Will the new karts have digital dashes? Or is there any kind of info you can give us about the new karts. Also will there be a significant size difference between the new tracks and the old one?

    • Staff Writer

      Hey Gavyn! Just updated our blog with some information on the Superleggero karts for you. We’ll have more about the tracks in the very near future.

  • john

    It’s 4/22….any word on reopening tomorrow? And the location would be very helpful.
    Are the rates increasing?

    • Staff Writer

      Hey John! Sorry for the delay in our response. Obviously we didn’t open on the 4/23. We’re working as hard as we can to open ASAP. Thanks for your patience! And no, the rates are not increasing. We’ll see you soon!

  • Beverly Berrett

    Hi, when will you be open again? My son is turning 15 soon and I want to reserve a time to bring him and his friends or see about a private party. Thx!

    • Staff Writer

      Hi Beverly! Sorry for the inconvenience – we don’t have a definitive open date yet, but we’re working as hard as we can to open ASAP. We’ll update this blog as soon as we know more, but we’re getting very close!

  • Tyler

    Still excited to see the new tracks as hoping there is better passing opportunities for the league. Will we be utilizing the ‘Boost/Overtake’ button on the Superleggero Karts or will it be a set speed still like the old EGK karts 4 speed settings controller by the race supervisor?

    • Staff Writer

      We’ll most likely be using the same speed settings as before.. but you’re going to love the new kart and tracks, Tyler!

  • Bill

    Will the teen race on May 3rd be held at the old location or the new location?

    • Staff Writer

      Hey Bill, great question. We’re working as hard as we can to open by then, but will likely depend on factors outside our control (local county sign-offs and department approvals). We have moved out of our old location, so no more racing there.

  • Anthony

    since it is not opening before challenge gp will it be rescheduled specifically for az or will it not happen at all? it would be a bummer if it doesn’t happen.

    • Staff Writer

      Hey Anthony, that’s a good question. We may just try to reschedule Phoenix’s CGP, but we’ll keep you posted with that. Thanks for your patience as we work hard on getting everything settled out there.

  • Kruger Lucas

    What day is the jr and teen league race gonna be rescheduled to?

  • AJ

    Is there going to be a May Jr. race this coming Tuesday?

  • Aubry Cahill

    I have a party booked for next weekend. Seriously, what is the address of the new location? Thank you 🙂

    • Staff Writer

      Hello, Aubry! We’ve got the address up on our Phoenix location page and on Google/Yelp, but here it is: 2501 E Magnolia St, Phoenix, AZ 85034. Keep in mind, we’re not open yet due to items outside our control, but we’re working hard to open any day now. Please reach out to your sales rep if you have any other questions.

  • Kruger Lucas

    There’s no new location is there.

    • Staff Writer

      There is a new location, Kruger, right where we say it’s coming. We appreciate your patience and support. It’s not easy moving locations in a short amount of time, but we’re nearly there.

  • Arlene Day

    Is your old Location open? And if so what are the hours? Calling the local number gets you to a call center that really doesn’t k kw what is going on. Please advise, as we planned to go there tomorrow.

    • Staff Writer

      Hello Arlene! No, our old location is closed. However, we are feeling confident that our new location will be open this week. Sorry for any inconvenience!

  • Anthony Navarro

    Any updates on opening date? We are all anxious on getting back to racing.

    • Staff Writer

      Hey Anthony, we’re very sorry for the delay. We’re just as anxious as you guys to get our new location open. We’re hoping this’ll happen by the end of the month. There are some items outside our control (city/county stuff) but we’re pushing hard to get our doors open ASAP. We sincerely appreciate your patience – the new place will be worth the wait!

  • James Paxton

    It is 18 May 22. Is the new location open yet?

    Thanks.

    • Staff Writer

      Hey James, we wish!! There’s been a couple of delays outside our control, but we think we’re finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. We appreciate your patience!

  • John Doe

    Is it going to be the same price? And Will there be the new shifter carts that it shows on this page?

    • Staff Writer

      Hey John, the prices are listed on our website right now. And yes, the new Superleggero karts come with shifter paddles. It’s going to be fun!

  • Ken Williams

    Hi – when will you be open?

    • Staff Writer

      Hi Ken! Don’t have an exact day at the moment, but we’re still trying to open by the end of the month. Thanks for your patience and sorry for the wait!

  • Avery

    Any date for opening yet?

    • Staff Writer

      Not yet, Avery! There are some items outside our control at the moment, but we’re trying our hardest to open by the end of the month. Thanks for your patience!

  • Tyler

    Since the delays have now delayed a month of League racing, would it be possible to do June’s league as a 2 for 1 using both tracks so that the points can still be utilized in full for both the May and June months?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello, Tyler! There is that possibility that we’ll run two league events in a single month to try to make up for lost rounds. Nothing’s set in stone as of yet, but we’ll try our hardest to make it up to you folks. Sorry again for the delays. This has been a tougher move than we anticipated, but we cannot wait to show you all the new K1 Speed Phoenix very soon!
