I attended the grand opening of K1 Speed in Miami as a complimentary guest.
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be 6 inches off the ground, rocketing along on an electric powered creation reaching speeds of up to 45 miles per hour with a hairpin turn quickly approaching? No? You poor thing! I have.
Ever since I can remember, I’ve had an appetite for all things fast. I blame my dad; he’s a motorhead who can name the car by the sound of the exhaust. However, there are these things called “Laws” that prohibit the exhibition of power and extinguish the desire to go really fast. That’s where K1 Indoor Kart Racing comes into play.
Technology is awesome. Gone are the days of attaching a lawn mower engine to a metal frame with wheels and letting it rip. K1 has state-of-the-art electric powered Karts that are capable of generating 20 horse power and speeds up to 45 miles per hour. Let me tell you, that’s fast.
So, what do you do with all this speed and power? You race your friends of course! K1 provides the indoor course that pits your against 7 or your closest friends (or competitors) for 14 laps of high speed battle. Even if you don’t pass someone, K1 is smart enough to keep track of your lap times for each lap.
At the end of the 14 lap grudge match, you can compare lap times and then revel in your victory, or, hang your head in shame and vow a rematch.
Either way, you’re sure to have a great time whether it’s with friends from work or with your family.
I will be going back. The staff is very polite and very helpful. They take the time to ensure you are safe by assisting with your helmet, should you need assistance. They inform you of the rules of the track and the meaning of each of the different flags. Then, when you’re done, they help you to pit row and show you the safe way off the track.
The facility in Miami also offers party rooms which can be used for work related “Team Building” events. Talk about getting everyone involved!
With options like that and safety a big concern, there’s no other way have more indoor fun. You have to go!
