What You'll Get
Professional race-car drivers have long been gathering in teahouses and bowling alleys to devise an eco-friendly manner of racing. Today’s Groupon reconciles this dilemma with four Arrive & Drive races (up to an $80 value) and a pair of annual race licenses for two people (a $12 value) at K1 Speed. With electric karts and 1/5 miles of fast concrete, you can embrace your inner speed-demon without fear of pedestrian casualties, a depleted ozone, or trips to speed-heck. Be sure to peruse K1's rules and safety information beforehand.
Housing some of the largest indoor go-kart racing in the state, K1 Speed delivers high speeds without the fear of repugnant oil stains with a distinctly fuel-y odor. Going electric is cleaner, faster, and makes a fearless lead foot seem the slightest bit more sophisticated.
K1 Speed uses a ProScore 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 the safety of state-required 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.
A day at the electric-car racetrack is the perfect way to make new friends, become a renaissance person, or display your ultracompetitive streak to a group of high-school students who follow you around after mistaking you for Kelsey Grammer. K1 Speed also hosts a number of private events and parties, so check online for closures ahead of time to ensure a smooth racing experience.
Today's Groupon is valid for one or two people over multiple visits.
