Professional racecar drivers have long been gathering in teahouses and bowling alleys to devise an eco-friendly manner of racing. Reconcile this dilemma with today's Groupon: for $44, you get four Arrive and Drive races and a pair of annual race licenses for two people at K1 Speed (a $92 value), located on South 21st Street.
Housing professionally designed tracks and co-owned by NASCAR and American Le Mans driver Boris Said, K1 Speed delivers high speeds without the fear of repugnant oil stains or that distinctly fuely odor. With electric karts approaching 45 mph, you can embrace your inner speed-demon without fear of pedestrian casualties, a depleted ozone, or trips to speed-heck. Arrive and Drive racing allows quick-witted karters of any skill level to compete against the clock and each other. Daring drivers can arrive any time during K1's extensive hours to throw down the gauntlet against friends, family, strangers, or speedy blue-tinted hedgehogs. With an annual license, you and another motorist get a year of track-blurring benefits, including access to racing scores online, monthly coupons, newsletters with special offers, a free Arrive and Drive race on your birthday, and use of K1 Speed racing helmets and head socks.
K1 Speed uses a comprehensive scoring system to gauge your skills against your aggressive other-half, friends, or other racers in the neighborhood. Indoor go-karting offers all the enlightenment of real-life racing with the charm of low-emissions technology and strict safety measures. Sate your speed demon with a bowlful of racing, topped with fresh tire tracks and paired with a tall glass of ice-cold rubber smell.
Note: Today's Groupon is valid for one or two people over multiple visits.
- K1 is cool. I've been a handful of times & always have fun. Great with a group. – TJ C., Irvine location, 1/25/11
- I can see why they they [sic] have a sticker outside that warns you of addiction. After 4 races here today, I can definitely see this becoming my next [expensive] hobby. – Randall T., Anaheim location, 6/8/09
