K1 Indoor Karting Comes to the Mile-High City
Facility NewsK1 Speed, the largest go-kart racing company in the United States, set to open newest location in Denver, Colorado.

K1 Speed is the largest karting company in the country, with dozens of locations throughout the United States, from South Florida to the Pacific Northwest. Since its founding in 2003, K1 Speed has hosted hundreds of thousands of racers at its karting centers. This success has helped drive unprecedented growth in the last two years, and the company shows no signs of slowing down. The latest K1 Speed facility will be opened in the Mile-High City, situated in Highland Ranch and Littleton – Denver, Colorado.

Karting Uniquely Suited for Denver's Climate

K1 Speed and Denver make such a great pair that it's a wonder Denver wasn't host to the first K1 Speed location! Why? Well, it comes down to a couple of factors:

• Weather – Denver is known for weather that runs the gamut of conditions, from searing heat to blistering cold. There's a saying in Colorado; “If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes.” And yet, for individuals eager to race at K1 Speed, the weather will be the last of their concerns, as each and every K1 Speed facility in entirely enclosed.
• Altitude – Anyone who has ever been to the Mile High City knows that the altitude can play tricks on your body. Even walking up a flight of stairs can leave you out of breath. This same lack of oxygen that affects people also affects engines, especially small engines like those used in go-karts. At K1 Speed, however, this altitude won't play a role, as the company exclusively uses all-electric go-karts for superior performance.

Put simply, the elements at play that make go-kart racing and Denver strange bedfellows have been accounted for. In fact, K1 Speed Denver will be open seven days a week, 364 days a year, regardless of weather conditions. And racers will never experience a lack of power due to altitude! The karts at K1 Speed Denver – a mile up – are just as quick as they are at K1 Speed Miami!

Race Day or Night, Rain or Shine – No Reservations Required

Racers at K1 Speed have a number of options. One of the most popular is K1 Speed's Arrive & Drive races. Individuals can join an Arrive & Drive race on a first-come, first-served basis, no reservation required. Up to 12 competitors at a time – friends, family and strangers alike – compete in a 14-lap race against the clock. The winner of the race is not who crosses the finish line first, but rather who manages to set the fastest lap within the allotted number of laps. By crowning a winner based on time rather than position, the Arrive & Drive race eliminates variables which could work in one person's favor at the cost of another's, such as starting position or defensive driving from other competitors.

The company also offers a number of race packages which can be reserved, perfect for parties of 8 or more people. These packages, which include reserved race times and exclusive use of the track during heats, are great for birthday and bachelor parties, corporate events, team building exercises, and special occasions. To further tailor these events around each party's needs, K1 Speed also offers private room rentals and catering options. No matter a group's needs or wishes, K1 Speed will work tirelessly to help make sure the experience is a pleasant and memorable one.

A New Standard for Karting in the Mile-High City

With electric karts and professionally designed indoor go-kart tracks, K1 Speed Denver will set the new standard for karting in the Mile-High City. Residents who are interested in racing at K1 Speed Denver can visit the Highlands Ranch location between 11AM and 10PM, Monday through Saturday, and until 8PM on Sundays. Adult drivers must be at least 58” tall while junior racers must be at least 48” tall.

ROCHESTER…START YOUR GO KARTS Pole Position Raceway to Bring Its Exhilarating Indoor Kart Racing to The Marketplace Mall in 2014; New Location to Add 40 New Jobs to Local Economy
Facility NewsPole Position Raceway, America’s leading chain of state-of-the-art indoor motorsports entertainment facilities – with the fastest electric karts on the east coast – today announced that it is bringing its unique and exciting racing experience to The Marketplace Mall, located at One Miracle Mile Drive in Rochester, this fall. Owned by husband and wife franchisees, Eyal Farage and Karen Davis-Farage, operators of Pole Position Raceway locations in Jersey City, NJ, at Destiny USA in Syracuse, NY and newly opened at Walden Galleria in Buffalo, NY, this new facility will add 40 jobs to the local economy.

Located in the southwest section of the mall, formerly occupied by Bon-Ton, Pole Position Raceway’s 52,000 square foot facility boasts one quarter-mile track and the latest in high-performance, all-electric, indoor karts capable of speeds up to 45 MPH. Pole Position Raceway features adult karts for racers who are at least 58 inches tall and separate junior karts for kids who are at least 48 inches tall. Best of all, the karts use electric technology, so there are no fumes – they are clean and green.

“We are pleased to announce our fifth Pole Position Raceway location coming to The Marketplace Mall in Rochester,” said Karen Davis-Farage, president and co-owner of the Pole Position Raceway franchise. “Indoor karting is one of the fastest growing forms of family entertainment in the country. We look forward to offering our authentic and exhilarating race experience as another reason people come to the mall, or as a fun activity they can do while they are here. We are excited to add the Rochester area to our expanding family of kart tracks.”

Pole Position Raceway offers a variety of options to suit the needs of all racers – from families, to die hard karting enthusiasts. Its “Arrive & Drive” racing is for those visiting the mall that enter a queue to race against others. Pre-Scheduled Racing events are for groups of 10+ and include the Pole Position Challenge, Grand Prix or Super Pole which are 2, 3 or 4 race events culminating with racers receiving 1st, 2nd & 3rd place medals at the Winners’ Circle. In addition to side-by-side race action, Pole Position Raceway also features authentic racing memorabilia, arcade games, concessions and V.I.P spaces for private parties, personal celebrations, corporate events and fundraisers.

“The addition of Pole Position Raceway is an exciting complement to the retail and entertainment concepts we want to achieve, as we continue to move forward with our redevelopment plans at The Marketplace Mall. We look forward to the vitality and fun the raceway will bring to the mall and the area,” said Mike Wilmot, General Manager at The Marketplace Mall.

Pole Position Raceway is the second store to be announced for the redevelopment of the southwest section of the mall, including the former Bon-Ton space. Field & Stream announced its first location in upstate New York in January 2014. The redevelopment will bring two to three new retail and entertainment concepts, in addition to three to four new restaurants. Additional announcements are expected to be made in the coming weeks.

"We are extremely excited to be expanding further into New York State," said Ken Faught, president and co-founder of P2R Karting, Inc., the franchise company for the Pole Position Raceway chain of indoor kart tracks. "We are going to provide those in the Rochester area with a unique form of entertainment that continues to rank as one of the top entertainment activities for families. Karen and Eyal Farage are experienced franchisees with a successful track record. I have no doubt that they will build a beautiful, state-of-the-art facility that will be among the best in the family friendly sport of indoor karting."

Committed to supporting the communities it serves, Pole Position Raceway’s give-back charter, CAReS – which stands for Cancer, Alzheimer’s, Recovery and thoSe in need – partners with local charities on fundraising initiatives year-round. The company looks forward to working with and raising funds for the many great charitable causes in and around Rochester.

Featured on Good Morning America, FOX & Friends, TLC’s Cake Boss, Nickelodeon’s Victorious, Good Day New York and more, Pole Position Raceway has hosted private and corporate events for hundreds of companies including Bank of America, Verizon, Toyota, Infosys, DeWalt, Trump Resorts, Price Waterhouse, Target, Coca-Cola, Budweiser, Pfizer and Microsoft and celebrities including Mark Sanchez, Alicia Keys, Ice T, Robin Roberts, 50 Cent and many more.

Pole Position Raceway has eleven locations nationwide, including Buffalo, NY, Corona, CA, Dallas, TX, Houston, TX, Jersey City, NJ, Las Vegas, NV, Murrieta, CA, Oklahoma City, OK, St. Louis, MO, Summerlin, NV, Syracuse, NY – and coming soon to Savannah, GA and Rochester, NY.

Want to Know Why Go Kart Racing Is So Great?
Racing NewsBackground

Go karts are simply a smaller version of the professional racing cars, such as those used in Formula One and Indy Car Racing. They race on similar but smaller tracks. They were first created in California in 1950s by Art Ingels.

Go Kart Experience

Go kart fans may easily get captivated by professional racing. After experiencing that kind of excitement, it can be hard to let go. You always want to go back for more. It gives both the drivers and the fans adrenaline rushes. And the best part is indoor go kart racing tracks allow you to race year round.


You do not need to be a professional to try go kart racing. Anyone can do it. And if you get good enough, you may even be able to turn pro. Tony Stewart, Kyle Petty and Darell Waltrip are some of the top track racing drivers who got their start on go karts.

Affordable and Safe

Go kart racing is inexpensive, and the electric go karts make them even safer, so moms don’t need to worry about their young ones getting hurt. An amateur driver can first use the closed chassis karts then advance to the open air ones. This will give them time to familiarize with the racing track while improving their driving skills.

With the many levels on hand, racers can move up tiers until they get to the professional level. This allows many people to engage in track racing but in a smaller way. Families, couples and even friends can always try it out.
