The Craziest Go Kart Track Ever

 

By now you know that Speed Raceway in Denver is closing its doors for a couple months, and re-opening in a new location, with the same exhilerating experience, just on a new track. While the old Speed Raceway track was fun and challenging for people of all ages, the excitement is building already to see how the new track design turns out. Over the past few months, the word is getting out in the greater Denver area about Speed Raceway's amazing group events and parties, with many local businesses coming out for teambuilding events, and people of all ages hitting the track for birthday, graduation, and bachelor parties.

What Your Plan of Attack Should Look Like at Speed Raceway

 

If you’re headed to Speed Raceway for the first time chances are you’re going to be a little overwhelmed with everything you’ll see and hear.  Many of our newcomers, while still having tons of fun, make some very predictable mistakes when it comes to racing our go karts and just taking in everything here at Speed Raceway.  Because of that, we’ve decided to plan out what we believe is the best set of things for any newcomer to do at our track.

Never Waste Your Time with Old School Gokarts Again!

 

Everyone thinks they have a pretty good idea about what go karting is like. Go to some run-down kids entertainment center, stand outside in the heat for 20 minutes waiting in line, race 5 laps in a loud, smell, gas-powered go kart, and run back inside to get out of the heat. Doesn't sound that much fun to me. If that was the only way to race go karts, I wouldn't blame anyone for not wanting to rush out to their nearest course to race. That's not a good environment for a corporate event, kids birthday, or a bachelor party.

Why Great Corporate Team Building Events Happen Outside the Office

 

Being tasked with coordinating a corporate team building activity can lead to mixed emotions.  On one hand, you have the opportunity to find fun and exciting places and events for you and your coworkers to do for a whole day of “work” while on the other hand you have a budget and possible backlash from unhappy workers to deal with if the day goes south.  If you’re thinking of throwing your team building event at the office, consider this: most employees are less excited and therefore less likely to enjoy and find value in activities done at the office.  Here at Speed Raceway, we’ve looked into why that is and have come up with 3 reasons why a successful corporate team building activity will almost always be off-site.

Tips for Quality Indoor Go Kart Driving

 

In this line of business, we see all skill levels of drivers. We have some very dedicated customers who race once or twice a week. We have many people that come about once a month, and there are plenty of customers who come only a couple times a year. It is always great to see these familiar faces and watch as they get better. But no race is more fun to watch than their first race.
