K1 Speed Grand Opening Meet | 10.26.14


After more than a decade, K1 Speed, the largest and preeminent indoor karting company in the nation, opened its first Hawai’i location in Kapolei, Hawaii on Wednesday, October 15th, 2014. On Sunday, October 26th, 2014, K1 Speed held a "Grand Opening Meet" for the general public and automotive enthusiasts alike in celebration of their newest center in Hawaii! With the addition of the Kapolei location, K1 Speed now operates more than 20 centers nationwide

K1 Speed plans to feature everything that the company has built its success (and its reputation) on: all-electric, high-performance go-karts; a museum-quality collection of authentic racing memorabilia, including actual race cars; a professionally designed indoor race track with safety barriers and live telemetry; a fully stocked Pit Cafe snack bar, complete with beverages and snacks; and private meeting rooms that can be reserved for birthday and bachelor parties, team building events, company holiday parties and corporate meetings

The original hui of local owners that started Podium Raceway Hawai’i in 2011 had a simple mission, to offer the community a new and exciting activity unlike any other in the state, to create jobs in West O’ahu, to be an active participant in the growing city of Kapolei, and to be good community partners giving back to many non-profit organizations

Having accomplished the mission after three years, the owners of Podium Raceway and K1 Speed jointly saw an opportunity to enhance the mission for the community by transferring ownership of Podium Raceway to K1 Speed. K1 Speed is excited to be a part of the local community and plans to take karting to the next level of customer experience!

For the best indoor go-kart racing in Hawaii, look no further than K1 Speed!
