At K1 Speed, we are devout fans of the electric go-kart! And with indoor karting facilities throughout the U.S., it would appear that our customers are as well! The electric go-kart has several clear advantages over its gas-powered rivals, including a low environmental impact, the absence of noxious exhaust fumes, and superior performance, which is why we decided when the company was founded in 2003 that we would use electric karts exclusively at K1 Speed.
With a 20hp DC electric motor that produces far more torque than other kart engines, our electric karts have superb acceleration out of tight corners; while a gas engine can get bogged down, our electric motors are capable of delivering maximum torque instantaneously. And unlike a gas-powered kart, an electric go-kart can be programmed to a variety of pre-set speeds to accommodate guests of varying skill levels, including beginner, intermediate and advanced. Our electric karts are also programmed for automatic speed reduction while in the pits and can be turned off remotely in the event of an emergency. At K1 Speed, we not only feel that the electric go-kart provides a more thrilling indoor karting experience, but a safer indoor karting experience as well.
If you are interested in planning a birthday party, a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, or other special occasions, we feel that our electric karts are perfect for children and adults (we do ask that drivers be at least 4’10″ tall to race). We invite you to visit our Nationwide indoor karting facilities today to see the electric go-kart in action! We’re confident that once you experience the rush and excitement that our electric go-kart has to offer, you’ll agree that electric karts are the way to go!
EXPERIENCE THE RUSH OF INDOOR KARTING
If you are interested in trying indoor karting, our electric go-kart has the performance to satisfy the most experienced racer. In fact, professional race car drivers from around the country regularly visit our indoor karting facilities, including the likes of Boris Said, Travis Pastrana, and Ron Capps. With speeds approaching 45 kph on our tight indoor tracks and up to 11 other drivers competing around you for the top spot, we can assure you that racing our electric karts is an adrenaline rushing experience that you will not forget! With locations nationwide, you’re sure to find a K1 Speed location near you. Come in today for an Arrive and Drive or call us to schedule a corporate event.
Our K1 Speed Storm Karts are among the finest karts in the world. With an electric motor, they offer a driving experience that is far different than that of a gas-powered kart. Whereas a standard 2-stroke gas kart has in the range of 6.5-9 HP, our electric motors produce 20 HP and have maximum torque available instantaneously! In addition to the performance benefits, our electric karts are environmentally friendly, as they produce zero emissions and feature remote shut off and speed reduction in the event of an emergency. We invite you to visit K1 Speed and see the benefits for yourself.
