K1 Speed Salt Lake City Becomes the Newest Attraction to Call Beehive State Home

Press Release

June 9, 2015

Sandy—In its ongoing mission to bring indoor karting to enthusiasts throughout the country, K1 Speed has opened its newest facility in Sandy, Utah, just outside of Salt Lake City.

This new facility, as with the company's nearly two dozen other locations across the United States, is a world-class entertainment venue. Among other attractions, it features high-performance electric karts, a professionally designed indoor go-kart track, authentic racing memorabilia, spacious lobby with games and leather couches, and meeting rooms for private and corporate events. The facility is now open to individuals, groups, and businesses.

The new facility's primary draw, however, is its electric karts. These zero-emission vehicles offer superior performance to gas-powered rivals, and are more environmentally friendly as well. The electric motors are quiet, nearly vibration free, and emit no noxious fumes of any kind. Overall, they provide for a more comfortable and more exciting user experience. Capable of speeds approaching 45mph around K1 Speed's indoor kart track, they are true performance machines that can satisfy even the most discerning enthusiast.

For those looking to experience wheel-to-wheel racing first-hand, K1 Speed offers a number of race packages that individuals can take advantage of. The company's most popular is its Arrive & Drive option, which allows adults and children (assuming certain height and safety requirements are met) to come in any day of the week without a reservation and take part in a 14-lap heat against the clock. Going head-to-head with up to a dozen other competitors, the Arrive & Drive race format provides plenty of thrills.

Of course, race packages are also available for large groups. For parties of eight or more people, K1 offers packages that include multiple-race formats, podium ceremonies for the winners, and reserved race times with exclusive access to the track. These packages are popular for team building exercises, corporate events, and special occasions, such as birthday and bachelor parties.

To accommodate large groups, K1 Speed's Salt Lake City facility offers private meeting rooms with multimedia setups and WiFi connectivity – perfect for business meetings or birthday parties. Additionally, catering can be arranged with a wide range of local food vendors, and guests are welcome to enjoy snacks and beverages from K1 Speed's Pit Cafe. The facility has been designed with a wide range of uses in mind to broaden its appeal.
