EXPERIENCE K1 SPEED FOR YOURSELF
We make it easy to experience the thrill of indoor karting. At K1 Speed Poughkeepsie, we offer go-kart racing seven days a week, no reservation required. Simply show up with family, friends, co-workers, or simply by yourself, and take part in our popular Arrive & Drive racing program
. Our Arrive & Drive package allows individuals to take part in 14-lap timed heats against the clock with up to 12 other drivers at once. With other racers vying for the same piece of real estate that you are, you will experience what it’s like to take part in some genuine wheel-to-wheel action; and yet, because you’re racing the clock and not each other, everyone has an equal shot at the win! And with our on-board, real-time data telemetry, you can monitor your lap times as you go. What makes our Arrive & Drive races particularly exciting, however, is our go-karts
. Put simply, these aren’t your fathers’ go-karts. Gone are the underpowered single-cylinder lawn mower engines – noisy, obnoxious, polluting and gutless – and in their place are zero-emission, high-performance electric motors. Producing 20hp and maximum torque from zero RPM, our karts accelerate out of corners like a rocket and can reach speeds up to 45mph. Push the throttle pedal down, and don’t be surprised if you get pushed back into your seat! Drive them once and you’ll be hooked.
