K1 Speed Columbus – Arrive & Drive
Have you and your friends been thinking about things to do tonight? At K1 Speed Columbus, we can provide you with an unforgettable, adrenaline-pumping experience. Our indoor karting center is unlike any other go-kart track you’ve been to before. Unlike the go-kart track at your local miniature golf course, our tracks are professionally designed, fully enclosed for racing in rain or shine, and well maintained. We don’t differentiate ourselves from the competition simply through our centers though. Our high-performance electric karts are in a different league altogether from the anemic, lawn mower-powered karts you’re accustomed to. Capable of speeds approaching 45mph, our electric karts have maximum torque available from 0 rpm and accelerate to their top speed almost instantly. If you’re used to the putt-putt-putt of a gas-powered kart as it slowly accelerates to speed, we can assure you that our karts will permanently change your expectations – they provide genuine thrills, whether you’re a novice or a seasoned enthusiast.
Once people sample experience the performance of our karts and see our indoor tracks in person, they never go back. If you live in the Columbus area and want to try go-kart racing, give K1 Speed a try. You won’t be disappointed!
Arrive & Drive Racing – Race our Karts, Anytime
Though we offer a wide range of race packages for parties of 8 or more, our most popular attraction is our Arrive & Drive race option. In an Arrive & Drive race, up to 12 racers at a time take to the track to race against the clock. Rather than race for position, which can reward pure luck or simply good blocking skills which we highly discourage, our Arrive & Drive races reward consistency, skill, and strategy. Setting a good lap time often involves navigating slower traffic or creating a hole so that you have a free and open track ahead of you. Just like qualifying in Formula One, one wrong move can ruin your lap time and prevent you from taking home the victory. We offer live telemetry so that you can monitor your on-track performance in real time and make necessary adjustments. After the race, you can compare your overall performance to every participant who has ever attended a K1 Speed indoor karting center.
Experience the Thrills Today
If you’re interested in go-kart racing, the Arrive & Drive option at K1 Speed Columbus is for you. As any number of professional race car drivers can attest to, including Travis Pastrana, Boris Said and Denny Hamlin of NASCAR, Juan Pablo Montoya, and Ron Capps, go-kart racing at K1 Speed is a genuine thrill! In fact, don’t be surprised if the adrenaline and sweat are pumping when you get off of the track. We must warn you that speed is addictive though! Many first-time racers buy one race to begin with, but you’ll find that many of our regular competitors opt for the combo pack of 3 races!
