K1 Speed Brings Indoor Karting to Plymouth Rock

Just as the Mayflower landed near the present site of K1 Speed Kingston nearly 400 years ago, K1 Speed’s first indoor karting center landed quietly but created a bang. Launched in 2003 in the San Diego suburb of Carlsbad, California, it was impossible to know then just have much of an impact K1 Speed would have on the sport of karting in the United States. Now, a decade on and more than 25 locations later, the verdict is clear. And the company’s newest indoor go-kart track is set to introduce the sport to a whole new region of fans.
K1 Speed offers a thrilling, authentic, wheel-to-wheel racing experience in professionally designed indoor go-kart tracks. Each center features spacious lounges, snack bars, video games, genuine racing memorabilia, and high-performance electric karts. Individuals of all ages can come in, day and night, and experience the excitement of bumper-to-bumper competition without making a reservation. This accessibility, combined with the authentic racing experience, has allowed K1 Speed to become the premier karting company in the United States.
Competitors have a number of options to choose from, including race leagues, but one of the most popular is the Arrive & Drive package. With identically prepared electric karts, competitors head out in 14-lap heats against the clock. By racing for time, rather than position, the Arrive & Drive package levels the playing field, and lets skill, persistence and strategy shine through, rather than dumb luck. With millions of racers in the company’s 12-year history, the Arrive & Drive format seems to have proven itself. But for those who want a bit more, K1 Speed has an answer.
In addition to race leagues – which are better suited to the more diehard enthusiast – and the more accessible Arrive & Drive packages, K1 Speed also offers a number of individual race packages that are tailor-made for parties of 8 or more. Ranging in size from two to four heats, with total laps from 30 to more than 60, there is an option for every type of enthusiast and group. And competitors get to take part in qualifying sessions, standing start races, and podium ceremonies for that true Formula One experience.
To accommodate larger groups, K1 Speed Kingston offers room rentals, which are perfect for birthday parties and private events, as well as catering from local watering holes. The company has also made a name for itself in the team building and corporate events industry, and with this new location, has set its sights on the hubs of Boston and Providence. Don’t be surprised if you see racers wearing suits and ties on your first visit.
With indoor go-kart tracks, zero-emission electric karts, and world-class entertainment venues, K1 Speed sets the gold standard when it comes to karting.
